Laser resurfacing where layers of skin are removed using vaporisation rather than by using a sanding device or chemicals.
This uses a laser of carbon dioxide to resurface the skin via powerful, frequent pulses. The results of the treatment are similar to microdermabrasion and chemical peels, but the layers of skin are removed using vaporisation rather than by using a sanding device or chemicals.
The Smart Xide Dot C02 Laser can be used in a variety of ways, depending on the skin condition that is being treated. The carbon dioxide laser can be used for focused and unfocused treatment, for cutting the skin without bleeding, superficially removing the skin or for facial resurfacing.
This is a popular and effective way of treating many skin conditions such as visible signs of ageing, as well as improving the appearance of acne scars and other forms of skin scarring. Factors such as the texture and thickness of your skin will determine whether or not this treatment is suitable for you. One common use of this procedure is to tighten the skin, especially on the lower eyelid area.
The intensity of the laser beam and the depth of penetration is always controlled by your medical practitioner.
Smart Xide CO2 Laser treatment is priced at around £1,380 for a single session.
