SmartSkin CO2 Laser - Eliminate deep lines and wrinkles on your face


The SmartSkin CO2 laser is used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, brown spots and uneven skin pigmentation. The laser consists of tiny pulses of energy into your skin creating microscopic holes. The holes heal from the sides causing the skin to become tighter while boosting natural collagen for a more youthful appearance. We will determine how many treatments are needed based on how much improvement you desire. A topical anesthetic along with lidocaine injections help with discomfort.

Nitrous Oxide may also be used to added comfort. The procedure takes about 10-15 minutes and results last several years with proper skin care and protection. There is approximately 3 to 7 days of downtime which include redness, dryness, peeling and warmth like a sunburn. You will be able to wear make-up and continue your normal daily routine in about one week after having treatment.
