The CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser is the most common type of laser used for resurfacing. Laser resurfacing uses a laser to send out brief pulses of high-energy light that are absorbed skin. The light is changed into heat energy, and the heat then destroys damaged skin, layer by layer. As the wounded area heals, new skin grows to replace the damaged skin that was removed during the laser treatment. Some lasers only tighten the skin by heating it but do not destroy the skin. Laser resurfacing is very precise and causes little damage to the surrounding skin and tissue. Healing and recovery take about 2 weeks.
