What Can SmartSkin CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Treat?

SmartSkin CO2 utilizes an array of technologies, so that you can have two treatments in one to provide the following cosmetic benefits:

SmartSkin CO2 laser treatment for these and other conditions can give you more youthful, smoother, and tighter skin. Plus, the SmartSkin CO2 laser incorporates fractional micro-ablative skin resurfacing technology and a proprietary scanning delivery system, which combine to deliver both skin resurfacing and collagen rejuvenation in one treatment! This results in total skin rejuvenation with a better and more immediate outcome. And the best part: the procedure itself involves significantly less downtime and discomfort than other laser treatments. SmartSkin can be used on skin anywhere on the body and is commonly used on face, eyelids, neck, decollete, hands, and extremities.

Dr. Petti customizes the post SmartSkin laser care with application of PRP (platelet-rich plasma), which calms the skin, enhances healing, and facilitates collagen production for faster healing and improved results.

What Are the Benefits of SmartSkin CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Comprehensive Treatment in Very Little Time

With the SmartSkin CO2 laser treatment’s ability to use multiple, effective technologies to rejuvenate your skin, the system ultimately improves all aspects of treatment. Plus, treatment can be completed in a fraction of the time most traditional methods take to achieve optimal results!

Some of the benefits of the SmartSkin CO2 treatment include:

Total Skin Rejuvenation

The SmartSkin CO2 laser’s combination of leading skin rejuvenation technologies enables it to give you a comprehensive treatment that incorporates all layers of aged and sun-damaged skin. Plus, the SmartSkin CO2 laser can go deep into the collagen structures of the skin to address laxity–resulting in tighter, smoother skin.

Effective Treatment for Customized Results

With MultiPlex technology, the SmartSkin CO2 treatment system can issue two wavelengths of energy in one pulse from the same device. Dr. Petti can use lower energy levels treat damaged skin without compromising results, leading to a more rapid recovery time and much less discomfort during the procedure compared to other technologies which use a single wavelength.

Quick Treatment Times

Treatments Faster by 400%

SmartSkin CO2 laser treatments can give you quick and significant skin renewal with minimal discomfort and beautiful results. What’s more, treatment with the SmartSkin CO2 laser is exceptionally convenient – rejuvenating your skin in about the time it takes to get away for a quick lunch break!

What Are the Side Effects of SmartSkin CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Following treatment with the SmartSkin CO2 laser, the effects you experience are largely dictated by the intensity of your treatment session. The type and severity of the skin concerns Dr. Petti targets during your session will determine the depth of penetration and wavelength setting of the laser. Compared with a traditional ablative CO2 laser, the side effects of the SmartSkin CO2 laser are minimal. Typical effects of SmartSkin CO2 laser treatments include redness (like a sunburn), skin warmth, and some swelling. After any redness dissipates, you may experience light peeling as your fresh new skin emerges. Intensive treatments may result in a very small amount of bleeding and scabbing while more deeply treated skin imperfections are resolved. Because the SmartSkin CO2 laser treats only a micro-fraction of the skin’s surface, developing an infection during the healing process (a common concern with traditional CO2 lasers) is highly unlikely and incredibly rare, especially when all post-treatment skin care instructions are followed.

How Long is Recovery after SmartSkin CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Recovery after SmartSkin CO2 laser treatment is minimal, requiring far less downtime than traditional ablative CO2 laser treatments. As mentioned in the section above, the length of your recovery will mainly depend on the depth and intensity of your SmartSkin CO2 laser treatment. While light treatments typically result in one to two days of healing, moderate treatments can take three to four days to heal, and deep treatments may take up to five to seven days for complete healing. Dr. Petti will explain how long your custom treatment should take to heal during the consultation process.

What Skin Care Instructions Should I Follow after SmartSkin CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Dr. Petti believes in the power of good skin care, especially after a laser treatment. Healing and optimal results are encouraged with the proper use of PRP (platelet-rich plasma), therapeutic balms, moisturizers, full-spectrum sunscreens, and gentle cleansers formulated specifically with laser-treated skin in mind. Prior to your treatment, you will be fully educated on how to care for and protect your skin in the days following your session. The skin must remain well-moisturized and shielded from the sun’s rays as it heals. Our practice offers one of the most advanced skin care lines on the market, Intelligent Nutrients®, and Dr. Petti will inform you about the products that are best-suited for your unique skin needs—post-treatment and beyond.

How Much Does SmartSkin CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost?

On average, SmartSkin CO2 laser treatments performed by Dr. Petti can cost between $2,000.00 and $5,000.00 per session depending on the treatment sites. The overall price of your complete treatment plan will depend on the intensity of your treatments, the area being treated, and the number of sessions you require to achieve your goals. At the end of your consultation with Dr. Petti, you will receive a detailed price quotation for review and can choose to proceed with scheduling your session, if you like.
