At Dermablue, we brought the best possible technology for laser resurfacing to Asheville using the CORE CO2 fractional laser. Fractional laser resurfacing is the most effective laser treatment available for wrinkle reduction. It is safe and effective method of resurfacing where water in the skin is heated by the laser causing controlled injury to the tissue.
The laser used in resurfacing will remove the outer layer of skin and simultaneously heat the underlying skin. This action works to stimulate growth of new collagen and the new skin that forms is smoother and firmer. The benefits achieved by laser resurfacing include the reduction of the following:
The treatment process begins with a consultation with a DermaBlue expert who will assess your skin type, medical history, and personal goals.
Before the procedure, the patient will typically receive a topical anesthetic or numbing cream to minimize discomfort. The laser is then directed at the target area to remove the outer layer of skin, with different types of lasers being used depending on the patient’s needs.
After the procedure, the patient will need to follow certain aftercare instructions, including avoiding sun exposure, keeping the treated area clean, and using topical creams to promote healing. The recovery period can vary depending on the intensity of the laser used, with some patients experiencing redness, peeling, or swelling for several days or weeks following the procedure.
The most common benefits of laser resurfacing include:
Laser Resrufcaing treatments are very individualized and are based on the number of treatments needed. We offer free consultations and may offer a discount based on the number of treatment areas you would like treated.
It’s possible if you have deep scars and/or deep wrinkles. Also, it depends on your own expectations. You may feel after a few months that you need further improvement. However, your Dermablue provider is the best person to assess how many treatments you might need during your initial consultation.
Obviously, your skin will continue to age after the treatment. However, to minimize on-going damage, consult with your DermaBlue provider about preventative measures, for example, a good sunscreen, medical grade topical skin care and maintenance laser treatments. You may need to adopt the habit of wearing a hat or engaging in sports earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon, away from the sun’s peak hours. These are practical lifestyle changes that will help you retain your new, healthier skin.
