Laser skin resurfacing reduces wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes. These treatments can also tighten skin and balance tone. Different lasers are best suited for various skin concerns and types, which is why many laser options are available.
CO2 lasers improve the skin’s appearance by stimulating collagen production, resulting in smoother and tighter skin. Dr. Saigal is the only provider in central Florida that proudly offers Lutronic ECO2, which provides fast, full-spectrum CO2 treatments with improved skin management and unparalleled outcomes.
What is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing is a facial rejuvenation procedure that improves the skin's appearance or treats minor facial flaws. Treatments reduce the appearance of fine lines on the face and loss of skin tone and improve your complexion. The treatment is delivered with a fractional laser, developed to shorten recovery time and reduce the risk of side effects.
CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a type of ablative laser which removes the thin outer layer of skin and heats the underlying skin. Doing so stimulates the growth of collagen, a naturally produced protein that improves skin firmness and texture. The treated skin is smoother and tighter as the epidermis heals and regrows.

eCOTone by Lutronic
eCOTone is a new light resurfacing treatment with minimal downtime that uses a lighter application than the eCO2. This gentle, non-invasive laser resurfacing treatment enhances your skin's youthful appearance by stimulating skin exfoliation. Doing so lightens and brightens your complexion, reducing sun damage and other unwanted pigmentation. As an added benefit, treatments gently stimulate increased collagen production.
What Should I Expect From Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment?
Laser resurfacing is generally an outpatient procedure, so your care team will numb the skin. You might receive sedation for extensive resurfacing, such as your whole face. Ablative laser resurfacing, such as CO2 laser treatments, lasts between 30 minutes and two hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. You may need a series of treatments to see optimum results, but you will likely just need one.
After CO2 laser resurfacing, the treated skin will be especially sensitive and delicate. New skin generally covers the area in two weeks, with full recovery around one month. During this time, do not use products that may irritate your face, such as cosmetics, and avoid situations that increase your risk of infection. Always use sun protection after laser resurfacing treatments.
After eCOTone laser resurfacing, recovery time is minimal, and you can resume your usual activities and skin routine immediately.
Results after ablative laser resurfacing include a noticeable difference in your skin quality and appearance, the effects of which can last for years. Results after eCOTone may be more gradual and progressive with improved skin texture and pigmentation, while results after eCO2 Plus include improvement in the appearance of wrinkles.
