When it comes to addressing the visible signs of again, few tools are more effective than a CO2 (carbon dioxide) Laser. Surgical CO2 rejuvenates and resurfaces the skin by going deeper under the skin. The CO2 uses a concentrated light to penetrate deep into your skin, heating your cells & creating tiny injuries, your body’s natural healing power responds and the damaged cells are pushed out as healthy new cells grow beneath. Many of our patients at Jazzi Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine in Lexington, Kentucky, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania love to combine CO2 with other treatments. Call our office to schedule a no charge consultation to see if Surgical CO2 is right for your skin concerns.
