CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

Improve skin texture, deeply rejuvenate and tighten the skin

We pride ourselves on ensuring we are at the forefront of the latest advances in cosmetic treatments and as a result, we offer state-of-the-art laser treatments.Our CO2 laser system is a popular choice for patients looking to refresh and rejuvenate tired and ageing skin with minimal discomfort and downtime.

It combines the proven effectiveness of an ablative approach with the convenience of a non-ablative solution. Traditional ablative treatments work similarly to dermabrasion and chemical peels by removing the outer layers of the skin to reveal softer and smoother skin. CO2 laser resurfacing is a fractional technology treatment that eradicates the pain and recovery time of ablative procedures without compromising on results.
CO2 laser technology creates a series of micro-channels in the skin as the narrow laser penetrates the deeper dermal layers of the skin. This process encourages the body’s own healing system to stimulate cell renewal and promote natural collagen production which is fundamental in supporting the dermal structure to help the skin retain a soft and supple look and feel.

This treatment is designed to eliminate signs of aging and addresses a broad range of skin imperfections ranging from subtle lines or deep wrinkles; pigmentation; scarring or dull and dry skin. As well as addressing concerns on the face, CO2 resurfacing can be used to revive other areas of skin such as the neck and chest.

As with all our treatments, we recommend a consultation prior to booking any treatment or procedure. Despite the numerous benefits of CO2 laser resurfacing, this treatment is not always the most suitable or effective treatment for all our patients. Our dedicated aestheticians will assess your concerns and aesthetic goals, offer advice on the best course of treatment and whether CO2 laser resurfacing will provide you with the results you want.

Improve skin texture, deeply rejuvenate and tighten the skin
Ahead of your treatment, our aestheticians will apply a topical numbing cream to reduce any discomfort and keep you comfortable during the procedure.

Whilst you may feel some warmth as the laser energy penetrates the dermal layers of your skin via a handheld device, it should not be painful. Procedures take approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Often patients are most concerned with how they will look immediately after any treatment.

With CO2 treatments, the results are both immediate and progressive. Initially, your skin may be red and feel tender for about one week after the procedure. Within a few days, you may start to notice some flaking and peeling on the skin’s surface as the treated cells begin to shed and reveal the more youthful skin cells below.

Once the peeling is completed and the redness subsides, you should see a noticeably smoother complexion with fewer lines and other irregularities than prior to your treatment.

The results will continue to increase in the weeks and months following your procedure and your skin will gradually look more youthful and radiant as your collagen levels rise.
