Laser CO2 and IPL
in El Paso, TX


Laser CO2 and IPL

Some of the latest advances in non-surgical skin rejuvenation include fractional CO2 lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. Patients can achieve younger, healthier looking skin with minimal downtime because this laser targets only the problem areas with each pass. Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is an option for patients who want to address skin concerns such as sun spots or broken capillaries. Both treatments help the skin rebuild rapidly. Knowing the difference between these two advanced skin rejuvenation treatments helps patients make an informed decision.

Laser CO2

CO2 laser resurfacing treatments are performed under local anesthetic so patients do not feel any discomfort during the treatment. The treatment involves passing the laser device over the skin to emit tiny beams of light energy into the top and mid layers of the skin. This causes an immediate shrinkage of damaged skin and also stimulates collagen in the dermis. This helps to tighten and smooth out the skin gradually. Most patients have about 4 to 5 days of downtime and experience some redness after a full-face laser CO2 treatment.


IPL facial rejuvenation treatments are especially effective for treating freckles, sun spots, and skin conditions like rosacea. The procedure is customized for rate patient and also helps stimulate collagen and elastin as the skin regenerates after each treatment. Most patients need a series of 2 to 6 IPL treatments every 2 to 4 weeks to address their sun concerns. There is no downtime with IPL treatment and any redness dissipates within a few hours.
