The carbon dioxide (CO2) laser peel is used to treat different skin issues. The method has been used to treat wrinkles, scars, acne scarring, enlarged pores, and to remove sun damage spots. The laser is used to resurface and regenrate the skin. The heat energy produced by the laser encourages new collagen production, tightens the skin and improves its elasticity. The procedure leads to permanent results. Depending on the laser heat energy, it can reach different skin layers and target precisely different problems. The recovery period depends on the depth of the peel and varies from 2 to 10 days. The side effects after the procedure may include redness and crusting. The crusts formed over the peeled areas disapper within a week to reveal new and healthier-looking skin beneath. It is important that you use medicinal skin care products and sunscreen during the recovery period after the laser procedure.
