Our expertise has made us one of the best providers of laser skin treatments in the Dallas area. During a complimentary consultation, we will determine your specific skin conditions and recommend the best skin resurfacing techniques for you.

What is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing using a CO2 Laser is a procedure that dramatically smooths the skin by removing dead skin layers and creating microscopic burned areas of the tissue. CO2 is considered the “gold standard” of laser resurfacing and the new fractional CO2 laser resurfacing offered at Advanced Skin Fitness is the newest technology available. The CO2 laser beam delivers a warm pulse of light that is absorbed by the water in the tissue. The heat from the laser creates the microscopic holes that later heal and repair to eliminate the visible signs of aging and acne scars while stimulating collagen production to deliver visible anti-aging benefits. CO2 Laser Resurfacing is the most aggressive form of laser resurfacing available. It’s designed to give big results in 1 – 3 treatments but requires around 7 – 10 days of recovery.
What is the cost of the CO2 Laser Resurfacing treatment and how many are required?
Typical costs for a CO2 laser are around $1500 to $3000 per treatment. At Advanced Skin Fitness, we often have specials that reduce this price dramatically. Check our “Online Specials” for more details. Depending on the severity of the skin condition, 1 – 3 treatments may be required.
What are the risks involved with CO2 Laser Resurfacing?
CO2 laser resurfacing is a riskier procedure than other forms of skin resurfacing. It’s generally safe for Caucasian skin but can be especially risky for darker skin. With any procedure that opens the skin, there is a risk of infection as well as a risk of stimulating an outbreak of Herpes Simplex on the face. Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation is also a risk for CO2 laser resurfacing but this can typically be prevented by pretreatment with hydroquinone.
When will I see results with CO2 Laser Resurfacing?
Results from a CO2 laser resurfacing treatment can be seen quickly. Usually, after the skin heals in about 10 days there will be a noticeable difference in the texture of the skin and a remarkable reduction in acne scars. The texture will continue to improve for about 4 – 6 months after your final CO2 procedure.
