What is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
CO2 laser skin resurfacing is an advanced cosmetic treatment that removes damaged layers of skin to reveal young, healthy, flawless skin. The procedure uses intense light energy to produce dramatic improvements to your complexion. CO2 laser resurfacing can be used to target specific areas, such as the mouth and eye areas, or the entire face.

Who is a Good Candidate for CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
CO2 laser skin resurfacing is very effective for treating several common skin problems, but it may not be the best option for you. The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for CO2 laser resurfacing is to meet with Dr. Baldenhofer for a free consultation.
What Should I Expect from CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Because CO2 laser resurfacing removes damage to the deep layers of skin, it requires anesthesia to help you tolerate the procedure. If an isolated area is being treated, local anesthesia may be adequate. Treatment of the entire face requires local or general anesthesia.
CO2 laser resurfacing works by scattering light beams across the skin. The beams create miniscule tunnels from the surface of the skin to the deep layers. Your body responds to these “microinjuries” by ejecting the damaged skin and replacing it with healthy, young skin. The light energy also works to heat the tissues, which triggers collagen production.
Healing takes up to two weeks. By taking care of your skin and using sun protection, you can enjoy the results of the treatment for many years.
