NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla., July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Thomas Pane, founder of Atlantic Coast Aesthetics in North Palm Beach, Florida, is pleased to announce that he has just created a new educational blog and article that are both devoted to the same topic: CO2 laser resurfacing.
After one of his followers on Twitter inquired about the procedure, Dr. Pane decided to make it the subject of the ACA Question of the Week.
"CO2 laser resurfacing is actually one of two different procedures that both rely on carbon dioxide laser energy to strip away the dead skin layers that accumulate on the upper levels of the epidermis and dermis, allowing new, healthy skin to replace the damaged and dead skin," Dr. Pane noted, adding that the procedure can also be used for minimizing or resolving fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth that haven't fully set into the skin.
Comparing CO2 laser resurfacing to a "very precise, targeted chemical peel," Dr. Pane said regardless of which procedure a patient chooses, it is extremely important to avoid exposure to direct sunlight during the recovery period.
"Sunlight can make the skin more tender and prone to sunburn, aggravating the very problems the laser was intended to correct because the thin layer of dead skin that protects the facial area is now stripped away," he said.
In general, the amount of recovery time depends on the energy of the laser used during the procedure, as well as the overall quality, tone and pigmentation of the skin.
People who are considering a CO2 laser treatment are welcome to schedule an in-person consultation at Atlantic Coast Aesthetics. During the appointment, Dr. Pane will assess the areas to be addressed and discuss the available options.
