What is ECO2 Skin Resurfacing?
ECO2 Skin Resurfacing is the gold standard in treating laxity, photodamage, deep fine lines, and acne scars. ECO2 Skin Resurfacing is the most advanced technology on the market; penetrating deep into the layers of the skin to promote collagen production. It is the most effective treatment to not only achieve laxity, but it also diminishes the effects of photodamage (such as vascular and pigmented lesions). It is proven to be a safer alternative to surgical lifting.
What conditions will ECO2 Skin Resurfacing treat, and on what areas of the body?
ECO2 Skin Resurfacing can treat a variety of skin types on most all areas of the body. ECO2 Skin Resurfacing is designed to treat the following conditions.
- Deep fine lines and wrinkles
- Mild to severe acne scars, surgical scars, and other scars
- Stretch marks
- Pigmentation (i.e. Melasma)
How many ECO2 treatments will I need?
Receiving an ECO2 Skin Resurfacing treatment, on average, requires one treatment. Depending upon the condition, Vita Nova Medical Spa recommends two treatments once a year. Results are immediate and progressive. Optimal improvement is typically visible in about 1-2 months.
What can I expect immediately following an ECO2 Skin Resurfacing treatment?
Upon receiving an ECO2 Skin Resurfacing treatment, the typical experience involves a mild sensation similar to a sunburn followed by swelling for about 1-2 hours after the treatment. Occasional light bleeding will appear and subside. For the first 2-3 days following the treatment, the skin will remain slightly swollen and red. During days 3-7, your skin will naturally exfoliate. Depending on your skin type and treatment level, you may experience dry flaky skin. Our highly skilled practitioner will design a personalized regimen, tailored to your specific needs, that will assist in the post procedure process and promote natural healing.
