The early signs of aging often creep up unnoticed. You may not notice crow’s feet or smile lines forming until they’ve begun to stick around after the laughter ends. Sagging under eyes and wrinkled skin can age you prematurely, adding years to your appearance, no matter how youthful you feel. While genetics play a huge part in the way we age, they don’t have to dictate your destiny. If you are struggling with signs of aging, advances in cosmetic procedures can help to remove a few years from your face. CO2 laser at Take Shape Plastic Surgery is the latest in effective age-defying cosmetic treatments. Here’s what you need to know!
How Does CO2 Laser Help with Signs of Aging?
Often, the first signs of aging we notice are the ones that appear on our faces. Because your face is exposed to the sun, weather conditions, and air pollution, you may begin to see fine lines, sun spots, and other signs of aging earlier than one may expect. These minute signs of aging may be caused by the skin losing elasticity with age, which can be accelerated by extended exposure to the elements. Other factors that can lead to early signs of aging include:
- Poor sleep patterns
- High alcohol or caffeine intake
- Dry skin
- Poor diet
- Occupational exposure to free radicals
If you are experiencing aging skin, CO2 laser at Take Shape Plastic Surgery can help to eliminate sun and liver spots, discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, and acne scarring. This procedure involves removing older layers of skin to expose the new, more youthful skin below. CO2 laser at Take Shape Plastic Surgery restores the youthful flush and glow to your face while also smoothing wrinkles, fine lines, and spots.
How Does CO2 Laser Work?
CO2 laser beams are a minimally invasive, outpatient cosmetic procedure. You will have a comprehensive consultation where our expert in cosmetic surgery and laser skin resurfacing, Dr. Russell F. Sassani, will review your areas of concern and explain the entire process to you. Then, our Surgical Coordinator at Take Shape Plastic Surgery will schedule your laser procedure at your convenience. The procedure can be conducted in as little as one hour, not including prep time.
Following treatment, your skin may take a few weeks to completely heal. During this time, it is important to follow any and all skin care instructions, including protecting your skin from sun exposure. You may experience skin sensitivity, so it is important to be mindful of what products you use during the recovery process.
