What are laser treatments?

Laser treatments for the face and neck involve the use of focused light energy to address various skin care concerns. These noninvasive or minimally invasive procedures target unwanted aesthetic issues of the skin on your face and neck.

The laser's energy stimulates collagen production, promoting smoother and tighter skin. Dr. Barnes uses the CO2 laser to cater to your specific needs. Treatments offer effective rejuvenation with minimal downtime.

Before undergoing any laser treatment, Dr. Barnes consults with you and assesses your unique skin concerns. He also guides you through the process, ensuring optimal safety and excellent results.

What can I expect during laser treatments?

During a laser treatment session, you typically wear protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the laser light. Dr. Barnes applies a cooling gel to the treatment area to enhance comfort and protect your skin. 

The laser device used emits controlled pulses of light onto your skin. You may feel a mild tingling or snapping sensation during the procedure, but it's usually well-tolerated.

What is CO2 laser treatment?

For lunchtime procedures, CO2 Lite laser treatment can involve only one pass over the targeted area, which can treat lip lines, loose eyelid skin, the removal of moles, and other small skin lesions.

If you desire more extensive treatment to reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, or loose skin, Dr. Barnes completes 2-3 passes with the CO2 laser at an appointment that requires more procedure time and recovery.

The CO2 laser offers excellent skin tightening results, giving you a dramatic improvement.

You can also combine CO2 laser treatments with other skin-improving procedures. 

When will I see the results from laser treatments?

The timing of results depends on the specific laser treatment and your individual skin condition. Some treatments might show immediate improvements, such as reduced redness or improved texture, might show immediate improvements.

However, the full benefits often become more apparent over the following weeks as your skin continues to respond to the treatment and undergoes a natural rejuvenation process.
