CO2 resurfacing (10,600nm) is the most aggressive laser technology on the market. Patients can undergo classic CO2 surfacing or ablative fractional CO2 resurfacing depending on what the goal of the treatment is. At Mountain Dermatology Specialist, we use the Syneron Candela CO2RE device for our CO2 resurfacing treatments. CO2 resurfacing can be utilized in the skin for cosmetic improvement of wrinkles, dyspigmentation and skin texture. It is commonly used on scars from acne, surgery and trauma to improve the appearance and blend in with normal skin. CO2 resurfacing can be used in certain instances to treat precancers and superficial skin cancer. In our practice, only board-certified dermatologists perform CO2 resurfacing for our patients.
