GO BEYOND WITH DR. EMER
CO2 lasers can be used all over the body. Dr. Emer often uses them as part of complex combination treatments for conditions such as acne scarring, or as a complement to improving surgical scarring in procedures such as facelifts and neck-lifts or mommy makeovers (tummy tucks and breast lifts), as well as traumatic scars and burns. A combination approach creates better results and reduces your overall recovery time.
TYPES OF CO2 LASERS
WHAT IS CO2 LASER TREATMENT?
The powerful CO2 laser expertly addresses cosmetic and medical issues. Sun damage can be the beginning stage of actinic keratoses, the development of squamous cell carcinomas. Actinic damage and pigmentation can be treated with a C02 laser, as can wrinkles.
CO2 Laser Combination Treatments
CO2 Lasers are an excellent complement to a number of other cosmetic and medical treatments, including those for fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and skin laxity. CO2 lasers promote collagen production and reduce recovery time.
Dr. Emer often uses it as part of more complex combination treatments for conditions such as acne scarring, or as a complement to surgeries such as facelifts and neck-lifts. In fact, CO2 laser therapy can accomplish more than any other procedure in 60- to 90-minute sessions. New collagen production can continue for months and years.
argeting the top layers of the skin, carbon dioxide and an ultra-pulse beam is used to eliminate aging and damaged cells. Microscopic heat channels are created to promote collagen production, and blood vessels are cleared and tightened, giving off a renewed texture and brighter complexion.
CO2 Laser Treatments With Surgical Treatments
At Emerage Medical, facelift surgeries are often combined with complementary procedures, such as eyelid surgery, buccal fat pad reduction or laser resurfacing treatments, in order to provide complete facial and neck rejuvenation. Using the ablative CO2 or erbium resurfacing lasers, Dr. Emer is able to achieve all types of great results.
He can improve deep layers of scarred and sun-damaged skin, such as discoloration or skin cancer; smooth fine lines and wrinkles; provide additional skin-tightening on the face and neck; create smooth, vibrant, and evenly textured skin; decrease discoloration and pore size; and promote cell regeneration and long-term collagen production for a more youthful appearance. In fact, he’s so experienced that he can actually take the CO2 laser right to the eyelash line, for precise results that are also perfectly safe.
RIGHT FOR YOU?
Make Sure It’s Right for You
Dr. Emer’s patients enjoy personalized treatment plans designed for their skin tone. Since the healthy tissue in darker skin tones might absorb laser energy, altering the skin’s color, ablative lasers are more ideal for patients with lighter skin. This technology is also better suited to address surface-level problems such as shallow wrinkles, acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. Patients should also not be experiencing an acne flare-up, as it can worsen breakouts.
