How the CO2 Laser Works
Many patients struggle with skin imperfections and signs of aging like wrinkles, scars, and uneven texture. These concerns can significantly impact one’s self confidence. Fortunately, the CO2 laser is a highly advanced and proven solution to address skin issues and restore the youthful appearance of one’s skin.
The CO2 laser works by emitting a concentrated beam of light that is absorbed by the water molecules in the skin cells. This targeted energy absorption causes the cells to heat up, resulting in the vaporization or removal of the skin’s superficial layers. This process triggers the skin's natural healing response and the production of new collagen fibers. As a result, the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and other skin irregularities are greatly reduced.
Dr. Sal Farruggio and his team create a customized treatment plan for every patient to address their specific needs and achieve their desired results. By adjusting the number of sessions, and intensity of the laser, this tailored approach allows for remarkable improvements in the skin’s tone, texture, and overall youthfulness.
