What are the Benefits of CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?

June 20, 2023


Aging and environmental damage can lead to dull, loose, or uneven skin. Undo this damage and rejuvenate your skin with CO2 laser skin resurfacing. This effective treatment triggers your skin’s natural healing processes to restore a youthful appearance. 

What is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?

CO2 laser skin resurfacing uses laser energy to create tiny columns in the skin. The Langdon Center offers several types of laser skin resurfacing to target different skin concerns. These include ActiveFX, a treatment that acts on the outer layers of the skin to trigger surface renewal, and DeepFX, a more intensive treatment that activates collagen production deep in the dermis. 

What are the Benefits of CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?

CO2 laser skin resurfacing is one of the most effective skin rejuvenation treatments. The benefits of ActiveFX and DeepFX at the Langdon Center include the following:

  • Highly customizable
  • Targets fine and deep lines and wrinkles
  • Smooths and brightens the skin
  • Stimulates collagen development
  • Speeds cellular turnover
  • Improves pigmentation issues
  • Erases signs of sun damage

For those who want to address all levels of the skin, ActiveFX and DeepFX can combine into TotalFX. This powerful treatment works on surface-level concerns while improving collagen production deep in the skin. 

What Happens During CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Local anesthesia will keep you comfortable during CO2 laser skin resurfacing. However, we also offer PRO-NOX™. This combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide immediately relaxes you and makes you more comfortable. Your entire treatment session should take about 90 minutes, including time for your anesthetic to take full effect.
