Dr. Petti’s Experience with SmartSkin CO2™ LaserSkinRenewal™
I just had a SmartSkin CO2™ LaserSkinRenewal™ to my Face, Neck and Chest! My skin had sun damage that mostly presented as pigmentation, and my neck and chest were beginning to get that wrinkled look with necklace neck wrinkles, so it was time!
I am so happy that I did this, as now my skin is clear with no makeup and my neck and chest skin is tight! This is exactly what I wanted.
It is great to be a patient and experience first hand the powerful effect of the fractional skin resurfacing technology-first hand.
This definitely makes me a better surgeon, to be a “patient”. My nurse Linette and I decided on the setting, and we used the new MultiPulse technology, so I had a comfortable, and fast peel. It took approximately 5 days for ~ 90 percent of my skin to peel and before I was presentable to the public. I never used any pain medications, just Advil and our post-laser skin care regimen made it easy to heal. I got a lot of work done from my home, so I made great use of my downtime.
I am amazed at the difference between this fractionated CO2 peel and the old ablative CO2 laser peels of the 90’s. What a great technological advancement-no wonder it is called “SmartSkin”!
I am planning on using intermittent SmartSkin CO2™ LaserSkinRenewal™ laser peels to keep my skin looking clear, smooth, tight and natural.
