Resurfacing with CO2 laser to renew your skin
What does CO2 laser resurfacing involve?
CO2 laser resurfacing is an oculofacial aesthetics treatment to renew the skin that offers a powerful rejuvenating effect for the face and the eyes.
The CO2 laser we use in the Miranza clinics, which are the first in Spain to incorporate the new AcuPulse equipment, involves advanced technology in comparison with other types of laser and offers greater comfort to our patients.
The action of CO2 laser resurfacing “vapourises” the surface layers of the skin and creates columns of thermal damage in the deeper layers through short light pulses. The area to be treated is previously analysed by the laser scanner, to which we indicate specific parameters depending on the goal sought through the treatment, as it is an extremely versatile technology that can be personalised to suit each individual.
Resurfacing is sometimes associated with blepharoplasty to enhance the results of this surgery. The CO2 laser itself is also extremely important during blepharoplasty, as it provides the surgeon with precision and encourages postoperative recovery.
Problems treated with CO2 laser resurfacing
By eliminating the top layers of the skin and activating the skin recovery mechanisms, stimulating collagen production, CO2 laser resurfacing helps improve the skin’s tone and appearance. One of its most frequent uses is to give the face a lifting effect and to fight upper eyelid laxity, as well as to hide different flaws in the area around the eyes, such as “crow’s feet” and other wrinkles, spots, redness, acne marks and small scars, etc.
Beyond the benefits offered by resurfacing, CO2 laser also enables us to provide outpatient treatment of benign lesions such as xanthelasmas or nevus (moles). Furthermore, when CO2 laser is applied during surgery, it is used to assist in blepharoplasty surgery, correcting the excess skin on the eyelids and bags under the eyes.
