Ablative Carbon Dioxide (CO2) laser
Used to treat sunspots, facial scars, facial wrinkles and the photo-aging changes in facial skin. It works by vaporizing the upper layer of skin away as opposed to peeling it with a mild chemical burn. The laser “abrasion” is like a combination of dermabrasion and a chemical peel. Ablative CO2 laser is used for severe wrinkles of the face. It can be used to treat the whole face, or portions of it. For example, one may treat just the wrinkles around the mouth and not the entire face.
