When it comes to rejuvenation of facial and neck skin, fractional CO2 laser resurfacing provides amazing results with much easier recovery than traditional ablative techniques. Laser skin resurfacing was once much more painful, invasive, and was a one-size fits all treatment.
Today, fractional CO2 laser resurfacing technology is much more versatile with more mild side-effects. Treatments offer reduced discomfort and a much more rapid recovery than days of old. With the right treating physician, CO2 laser resurfacing can provide amazing results with little recovery and down-time.
At Thompson Facial Plastics, fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is customized to each individual patient for maximum results. Laser resurfacing is often done in conjunction with other procedures to provide overall facial rejuvenation, helping the patient reach their individual aesthetic goals. Many patients undergoing facelift surgery to tighten the lower jowl and neck skin receive fractional CO2 laser resurfacing a few weeks following surgery to treat pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, dull skin, and uneven skintone that is not addressed with facelift surgery.
For patients seeking the best in only non-surgical rejuvenation, the combination of a liquid or non-surgical facelift with fractional CO2 laser resurfacing provides amazing results with little downtime and recovery. First, the laser resurfacing treatment is performed to brighten and the skin and reduce wrinkles. Then the patient receives a customized treatments of dermal fillers and Botox to address remaining concerns, such as deep folds around the mouth and frown lines between the brows. Many patients add lip and/or cheek augmentation to enhance their features and compliment their fresh glowing skin that results from a fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatment.
