Skin Resurfacing Q & A

What is skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing can help correct many different skin conditions including aging skin, rosacea, acne, and age spots. Dr. Colon and her expertly-trained team of nurses, laser technicians, and aestheticians use the advanced laser technologies of the Affirm CO2 and Alma CO2. These laser treatments, which use a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, are fast, comfortable, and require less downtime than other types of skin resurfacing techniques.

Another type of skin resurfacing treatment offered at Evolve Wellness & Aesthetics Center is the J-Plasma® device. J-Plasma technology is different from the CO2 laser. It combines cold helium plasma with radiofrequency (RF) energy. The key benefits of J-Plasma technology is the low risk of injuring surrounding delicate tissue. It’s one of the most precise ways to rejuvenate skin while minimizing damage.

What conditions does CO2 laser skin resurfacing treat?

The Affirm CO2 and Alma CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatments conveniently treat men and women who want to improve the appearance of:

  • Large pores
  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Acne or surgical scars
  • Age spots
  • Stretch marks

How does CO2 skin resurfacing work?

The laser passes over your skin to smooth lines, wrinkles, and other irregularities. It also tightens the skin. The CO2 lasers use a high-energy beam of light to stimulate the formation of new collagen over time. This results in a refreshed, more even-toned, plumper appearance. Affirm CO2 and Alma CO2 lasers treat the targeted area with minimal damage to the surrounding tissue.

Is skin resurfacing painful?

In many cases, people feel a slight discomfort or warmth similar to a sunburn. Dr. Colon or one of her expert staff applies a topical numbing cream before using the laser to make you as comfortable as possible during your treatments.

How should I prepare for my skin resurfacing appointment?

The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Colon so she can understand your goals, examine the areas you wish to treat, and recommend the options that are best for your individual needs. Dr. Colon tells you if you’re a good candidate for skin resurfacing, and which type will help achieve the best results. Call the office or schedule a consultation online to get started.
