CO2 laser, or carbon dioxide laser, is a type of laser used in skin resurfacing treatments. It works by creating tiny holes in the skin, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in smoother, tighter skin.
CO2 laser treatments are popular because they can address a wide range of skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and uneven texture. At Sparkle, we love CO2 laser treatments because they can provide dramatic, long-lasting results with minimal downtime.
However, it is important to note that CO2 laser treatments are more aggressive than other skin tightening treatments and may not be suitable for everyone.
It is best to schedule a consultation with our experienced team to determine if CO2 laser treatment is right for your skin type and concerns.
You will experience the most advanced technologies to give you the best results.
