CO2LD Laser

Impressive Results, Less Downtime

Results from CO2 laser resurfacing are unparalleled with other lasers. However, we understand that not everyone can afford the 5 days of downtime that traditional fractionated CO2 laser requires.

We are excited to offer a unique platform with our laser available nowhere else in Richmond. It is called the CO2LD laser and can achieve excellent results with only a couple of days of downtime. It stands for CO2 Low Downtime. The difference between CO2LD and traditional fractionated CO2 laser is the depth of treatment: CO2LD laser goes deeper and does not affect the uppermost layer of skin called the epidermis. Leaving the epidermis intact translates into faster healing.

This technique is also very effective in other parts of the body than just the face. It can be used on the chest, arms and even hands.

So why would you not choose CO2LD treatments? In order to achieve excellent results, several treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

We are passionate about offering different options for each patient, and the CO2LD technique gives patients who cannot afford downtime another option for laser facial resurfacing with incredible results.

Dr. Shaw uses the Lumenis Ultrapulse CO2 laser. This laser uses fractionated energy much like the brand name Fraxel, but gives superior results.
