It is traditionally used for more severe wrinkles, sun damage and scars. Commonly referenced as the gold standard of skin resurfacing during the millennial transition, ablative CO2 lasers allow the operator predictable precision, key for removing the fine, surface layers of the damaged dermis. First resurfacing is performed with the Ultrapulse CO2 laser, then the area is treated with the erbium laser.

The CO2 laser delivers heat to the tissue, which causes collagen to contract, producing visible tightening of the skin. In some patients, this effect of laser resurfacing may complement or even replace more invasive procedures such as facelifts. The erbium laser may also be used for resurfacing. Erbium resurfacing may be used for mild sun damage. It is also used for resurfacing of the neck and chest.

The CO2 laser is a carbon dioxide laser used in skin resurfacing. Its effects are similar to those of chemical peels and dermabrasion, except it removes skin layers by vaporization rather than with chemicals or a sanding device.

Dr. Monica Tadros has had unsurpassed accomplishments in the before and afters for her patients simply by expending her layered technique for resurfacing. This tactic improves healing and reduces post-operative redness. The erbium laser is then used to carefully sculpt away the edges of acne scars and deep wrinkles for enhanced results.

What is the healing phase like?

During the first few days, significant swelling and an open wound will occur. Soaks should be applied to the skin to enhance healing. During the healing phase, most patients experience no pain or only mild discomfort.
Durable results, improved safety, comfort and rapid recovery are just a few of the contributing reasons patients are choosing fractionated ablative laser treatment therapy.

How does an ablative laser differ from a non-ablative one?

There is no downtime and no anesthesia with the non-ablative laser. You can go on your lunch break, immediately put your makeup on, and head right back to work. The benefits are dramatic, but it typically takes two to five treatments and it does take time to see the full benefits of this type of laser facial. In addition, non-ablative lasers only target the skin’s dermis, which is why there is no downtime and also why you need more than one treatment. Results from ablative lasers will ease up around 10 – 14 days after the procedure, the resurfaced skin has completely healed and makeup may be applied.
