The CO2 laser was invented in 1964 by Kumar Patel at Bell Labs in the United States. It was soon adopted by plastic surgeons around the world as the best form of treatment for skin resurfacing. Over the years, the CO2 laser has become the fountain of youth for thousands of people.

Carbon dioxide laser (co2 laser)

  1. 1. Carbon Dioxide Laser (CO2 Laser) The CO2 laser was invented in 1964 by Kumar Patel at Bell Labs in the United States. It was soon adopted by plastic surgeons around the world as the best form of treatment for skin resurfacing. Over the years, the CO2 laser has become the fountain of youth for thousands of people. In 2013, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported over half a billion skin resurfacing procedures performed in the United States alone.
  2. 2. How the CO2 Laser Works Collagen is the main protein in the connective tissues; it is collagen that keeps the skin appearing rejuvenated and wrinkle free. What destroys the collagen in the connective tissues is sun exposure or the natural ageing process combined with pollution. The CO2 special setting allows facial plastic surgeons to perform procedures on fair to dark skin types. The CO2 laser wavelength technology uses a very short pulsed light energy known has "ultrapulse.” These continuous light beams penetrate into the bores of the skin and boost the body's natural collagen production. The skin then begins to repair itself by replacing the damaged skin with the new skin, all with minimal to no heat damage. Although CO2 ablative lasers can significantly reduce fine wrinkles, tighten skin and improve scarring, in the past they have been associated with the potential for hypopigmentation in most skin types and delayed healing times. Today, the latest CO2 technology fractionates the beam to produce columns of tissue ablation separated by healthy tissue. As a result, fractionated CO2 lasers can be performed on almost every skin type, significantly decreasing the risk of hypopigmentation and dramatically speeding up healing time.
  3. 3. Who can perform the CO2 Laser Treatment? Effects The efficacy of Dr. Torgerson’s fractional CO2 remodeling laser treatment depends on how well you’re able to protect your skin from harmful elements; such as the sun, smoking, weight change and an unhealthy diet. If you are able to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and protect your skin from sun exposure, Dr. Torgerson’s Fractional CO2 laser treatment can last for up to several years.

Dr. Torgerson is very well educated in skin remodeling and resurfacing techniques, and uses the best methods that allow his patients to feel very little discomfort while providing them with top results.
  4. 4. Results What makes Dr.Torgerson's fractional laser the best treatment in Toronto is that Dr. Torgerson is able to customize the treatment depending on the patient’s preference. Some patients prefer two treatments to avoid more downtime. With Dr. Torgerson’s fractional CO2 laser, you’ll be able to see an improvement right away and full results after 3 to 6 months depending on your lifestyle.
