Overview

Advancements in science have made laser applications more precise and effective than ever before. Plano, TX double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, uses the SmartSkin CO2™ laser for laser skin resurfacing to achieve a variety of positive results. The treatment is used for skin rejuvenation, to remove fine lines or wrinkles around the eyes, cheeks, or mouth, minimize scars from acne or trauma, stimulate collagen production to improve skin texture, and improve aged or sun-damaged skin. During a consultation, we will determine the appropriate number of treatments for the best results.

Best Candidates

During a consultation, a medical professional will help determine if laser skin resurfacing is right for you in order to achieve your goals. The ideal candidates for laser skin resurfacing:

  • Have aged skin with facial lines and wrinkles
  • Have sun-damaged skin
  • Have acne
  • Desire long-lasting results

What to Expect

A numbing agent or local anesthetic can be given to the patient prior to laser skin resurfacing. The practitioner will place the CO2 laser on the treatment area for a short period of time before moving to the next section. Short pulses of light are emitted into the deeper layers of the skin to increase collagen production. The skin is removed layer by layer to stimulate the growth of new skin.

Since the skin can discharge a yellowish fluid, the doctor will apply an ointment to the area for protection. The treated area will also be dressed for further protection. After treatment, the patient usually experiences itchy, swollen, and raw skin. The doctor will provide detailed aftercare instruction. If crusting occurs, the patient should refrain from picking at the crust since it can lead to scars.

Anticipated Results

As the skin recovers, a patient should keep the skin clean and protected. Within 1 – 2 weeks, new, refreshed, and rejuvenated skin should appear. Increased collagen production will lead to firmer, tighter skin that will continue to improve over time. Follow-up treatments may be needed for the best results.
