Treatment for Acne Scars, Facial Wrinkles, and Skin Tightening Cost

C02 Fractional Laser CostWrinkle-free, clear, smooth skin, although a much desired attribute, is often left at just that. Aside from the aging process that cant be evaded, exposure to pollution and sun, can destroy the collagen and take a toll on your skin. Added to this, remnants of persistent acne, in the form of scars, can take the sheen of your face. Walking into a medical spa and undergoing a skin renewal treatment is your best bet at flaunting clear, younger-looking skin. A CO2 fraction laser helps in combating acne scars and age-lines.

How does C02 fractional laser work?

The C02 fractional laser uses a vaporization technique to remove the skin layer, as opposed to chemicals or sanding devices used in other techniques. The laser when directed to the problem area, creates deep, narrow treated area columns, which has healthy, untreated tissue around it. It gently removes the skin cells to expose the layers of skin lying under it. The heat given out by the laser beam, stimulates the collagen, which in turn leads to the formation of smoother and younger looking skin. You may have to stay at the medical spa for about half an hour or more to undergo the treatment. Once the treatment is completed, an ointment may be applied to the laser exposed skin to have a soothing effect.

The individual may notice slightly reddened skin and swelling, after the procedure, says Dr. Bijan Farah, well-known in the areas of Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando and Calabasas, CA. The recovery period could take about one to seven days, based on the nature of the treatment. You can ask the doctor at the med spa, about your cleansing routine, and whether or not you are allowed to apply sunscreen or a moisturizer during the recovery period.

Cost and other considerations of the treatment

C02 fractional laser treatment can be used to treat the following conditions:

  • To treat sun-damaged or aged skin
  • To have anti-aging effects by reducing fine lines, wrinkles and pores
  • To treat pigmented skin and age spots
  • To tighten skin and enhance its texture
  • To treat acne scars
  • To reduce surgical scars and stretch marks

The individual may have to come in for one or more treatments, based on his/her condition. In terms of comfort, fractional laser treatment is far better than other laser treatments, although the doctor may apply a topical cream to desensitize the treatment area during fractional laser treatment. The collagen shrinkage during the procedure, leads to immediate effects of skin tightening. The improvement resurface as there are noticeable improvements in the collagen density and skin tightness in about 30 days following the treatment. The improvements steadily continue for nearly six months from the time of the treatment. The cost of the treatment varies across facilities, and is affected by the individual requirements for the treatment as well. The procedure can cost anywhere between $ 2,000 to $ 5,000, a small price to pay to renew your skin.
