What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

After just one treatment of SmartSkin CO2 laser skin resurfacing in Berlin, you’ll notice a more youthful-looking appearance with improved tone and texture. This cutting-edge, anti-aging treatment allows you to achieve long-lasting results without the pain or side effects of more invasive surgery.

This fractional CO2 (carbon dioxide) technology uses a precise laser to create tiny skin channels, allowing new cells and collagen to grow. The innovative treatment dramatically improves the skin, making aged skin appear much younger and healthier.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Candidates

One of the defining laser skin resurfacing benefits is that nearly everyone is a good candidate. If your skin is generally healthy and you are experiencing any of the following, you’re likely a candidate for the treatment:

  • Age spots
  • Redness
  • Large pores
  • Wrinkles
  • Overall rejuvenation

Berlin Laser Skin Resurfacing Benefits

The SmartSkin laser is less abrasive than traditional CO2 lasers, which makes it a better skin rejuvenation option for more people. Because it is less abrasive, the treatment addresses areas of concern with minimal bleeding or scabbing. 

Another SmartSkin CO2 laser benefit is that its treatments are highly customizable. We can choose the exact level of power needed to target the unique issues of your skin, curating a treatment plan specifically for you.

Results are immediate and progressive, peaking around three months after treatment, and include improved skin tone and texture. Our skin care professionals can adjust treatment plans to fit everyone’s lifestyle, another unique benefit of SmartSkin laser skin resurfacing.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure and Recovery

What Is the Procedure?

SmartSkin CO2 laser resurfacing generally lasts for half an hour and is performed in-office, using a numbing cream or a local anesthetic, depending on your treatment needs. You may also be given goggles to protect your eyes.

The SmartSkin laser is passed over the areas that are being treated. How many times the laser will need to go over the skin will be determined by how severe the problems are and how thick the skin is.

What Is the Recovery Like?

Immediately following the procedure, your body’s natural healing process will trigger the production of new cells and collagen for several months. You’ll instantly notice results that progressively improve for several weeks. Some patients require multiple treatments for optimal results, but we will determine how many treatments are needed during your consultation to meet your goals.

After treatment, your skin may feel warm and look as though you have a sunburn. You may also experience some swelling for a few days. However, these side effects will subside; after approximately one week, your skin will look much healthier and even-toned. You can resume your active lifestyle in about five days following laser skin resurfacing.

To my patients,

It is with mixed emotions that I have decided to discontinue doing the surgical part of my practice as of the end of this February. Even though I will no longer be doing surgery, I will continue to provide botox, fillers and noninvasive treatments. Having experienced the many changes that life has brought over so many years of practicing medicine, it has become time for me to commit to other pursuits. I thoroughly enjoy and look forward to taking care of people in the area of aesthetic medicine. I have had the privilege of taking care of so many wonderful patients over the past 30 years. I have learned so much from all of you. Thank you for your trust and support.

Please reach out to book your nonsurgical appointments. Our contact information, and scheduling will be the same as it always has been. You can call us at 508-393-4544.

My best to all of you,

Dr Poulos
