Apart from the face, the hands are another prominent body part that can fall victim to signs of aging. In fact, they can age just as quickly, if not more quickly.
Sunspots, uneven pigmentation and fine lines can develop on the back of each hand, giving them a weathered, aged appearance. To solve these concerns, Dr. Rousso and Dr. Adams offer youthful hand rejuvenation to their Birmingham, Alabama patients through the Phoenix CO2 Laser System.
The Phoenix CO2 Laser System
The Phoenix CO2 Laser System, created by Rohrer Aesthetics, can be used to rejuvenate the skin on the hands and other areas of the body. It contains a multipurpose handpiece that can be used for making incisions or coagulating and vaporizing soft tissue. The device facilitates successful tissue rejuvenation with less bleeding, bruising, swelling and discomfort, as well as a shorter recuperation period. The Phoenix CO2 Laser System also contains a micro-thermal zone scanner that stimulates collagen production to increase the speed of healing after treatment.
What Does the Phoenix CO2 Laser System Treat?
The Phoenix CO2 Laser System can provide youthful hand rejuvenation by treating wrinkles, fine lines, scars, uneven pigmentation, age spots, liver spots, sun spots, brown spots, warts, skin tags, coarse skin, dull and dehydrated skin, acne and traumatic scars. Any surface irregularity can be treated with this therapy. The laser is designed to remove areas of wrinkled or damaged skin layer by layer, which stimulates the healing process and reveals fresh skin.
Treatment of Brown Spots
A clear sign of aging is the development of brown spots on the hands. The laser light used with the Phoenix CO2 Laser System interacts with the skin surface of the hands, causing the outer layer to peel away. This removes the damaged, discolored skin and reveals a more youthful, healthy and even skin tone. Additionally, the laser energy stimulates collagen regeneration to further improve the health, fullness and softness of the skin.
Treatment of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
CO2 laser skin resurfacing with the Phoenix CO2 Laser System directs CO2 laser energy to vaporize and remove the outer layers of skin. As the damaged, aging skin is removed, smooth and healthy layers of skin become visible. New skin cells begin to form, and collagen production increases to revitalize the skin. During the short recovery period, epidermal remodeling and tissue regeneration occur, gradually leading to more youthful hands, free of coarse wrinkles and lines.
What to Expect from the Phoenix CO2 Laser System
Post treatment, patients may experience some redness and swelling, and the treated areas may look similar to a mild sunburn. About seven days later, a new layer of skin will develop, and makeup can be applied to conceal any remaining side effects, if desired. Minimal pain is normal following the procedure, and results become visible as the skin heals. Along with some flaking, peeling or scabbing, some patients may experience a mild breakout as new skin forms, but should subside within two weeks.
Upon completion of the healing process, many patients experience significant improvement to the appearance of their skin, including reduced areas of pigmentation, tightened skin, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, reduced scarring, and more. Dr. Rousso and Dr. Adams offer the Phoenix CO2 Laser System at their Birmingham, Alabama plastic surgery practice. Contact us today to request a consultation.
How Does the Phoenix CO2 Laser System work?
The treatment is performed under local anesthesia at our clinic. Once applied to the treatment area, the laser energy is directed at the targeted area. Then, the damaged skin is safely removed with little to no destruction of the adjacent areas, allowing new, more youthful skin to generate underneath. In total, the Phoenix CO2 Laser System takes about 30 minutes to perform, depending on the location and the size of the treated area.
