Safe & Effective Laser Skin Treatment in Atlanta
Smooth, radiant skin can be a sign of youth, health and vitality. As a result, many of our clients want fewer wrinkles, scars, blemishes, and other age-related imperfections. That’s why men and women alike are looking to laser skin resurfacing to achieve their desired appearance goals.
Laser skin resurfacing treatments with the CO2 laser (carbon dioxide laser) are medical procedures that restore tone and glow to your face and other areas of the body, including the chest, neck, arms and legs. Laser resurfacing is highly effective for diminishing and eliminating severe lines and wrinkles as well as reducing the appearance of more prominent skin imperfections and inconsistencies such as acne scars and discoloration from sun damage.
CO2 laser skin therapy is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment that removes outer layers of old, sun-damaged and scarred skin, making way for new skin to flourish and fill in wrinkles and crevices. Laser resurfacing tightens the skin naturally while stimulating collagen production. The result is a rejuvenated, revitalized, and more youthful appearance.
Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing at Our Atlanta MedSpa
Laser skin resurfacing is the best way to renew complexions and restore wrinkled or scarred skin. The advanced carbon dioxide laser is used to carefully remove the outer layers of the skin, causing your body to stimulate collagen growth and replace old skin with new tissue layers. This renewed, refreshed skin has an improved smooth texture and firmness and often shows little evidence of old wrinkles or scars.
CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatments remain the gold standard for treating age-related surface imperfections and can be performed on any area of the face or the body. Laser skin therapy benefits:
Renew skin by removing outer layers and stimulating growth collagen in new skin
Reverse the appearance of aged and sun-damaged skin
Reduce deep or fine lines and wrinkles
Improve skin texture and firmness; tighten loose skin
Reduce brown spots and sun damage spots
Reduce visibility of acne scars and stretch marks
Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing with Claro2
Regenerative MedSpa of Buckhead offers clients the most innovative approach to laser skin treatments today with the Claro2 laser system, medical laser technology by Emvera. For men and women in Atlanta seeking to renew and restore their skin, the Claro2 fractional laser resurfacing technology provides an effective and comfortable procedure with lessened discomfort, fewer complication risks and shortened recovery time.
The Claro2 fractional laser system is specially designed to improve skin texture and tone, and fight wrinkles, scars and pigmentation. With fractional CO2 laser resurfacing, the Claro 2 laser delivers a series of microscopic, closely-spaced laser spots to the skin while simultaneously preserving the normal, healthy skin. The undamaged skin becomes a reservoir of tissue for quickened healing and tissue regeneration of the treated area, stimulating new collagen production and resulting in the elimination of pigmentation and irregularities to the skin tone.
CO2 Laser Treatments on Face, Chest, Neck, Arms & Legs
Billed as one of the most effective non-invasive anti-aging skin rejuvenation breakthrough treatments around, fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatments are powerful, ablative lasers that deliver effective skin resurfacing results.
Fractional CO2 lasers are primarily used to treat deeper wrinkles, severe texture problems from sun damage, wrinkles, and acne, surgical or injury scars. These laser skin resurfacing treatments can be performed on almost any area of the body, including face, neck, chest, arms and legs, and areas with acne scarring, surgical scarring and stretchmarks.
With CO2 laser resurfacing at our Atlanta medspa, we help clients achieve younger-looking skin that feels smoother and firmer – often providing incredible results with only one treatment. For many clients, laser resurfacing results on the face can approximate that of a mini-face lift, with lessened recovery time and without surgical incisions!
What to Expect with CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing in Atlanta
Prior to your laser resurfacing treatment, we recommend you avoid extended direct sun exposure as well as medication and supplements that thin the blood. On the day of your procedure, we’ll cleanse and treat your skin with a topical cream anesthetic to minimize any discomfort during the procedure.
While laser treatments vary in terms of time – depending on how many areas are treated, depth of the damage and whether it is performed with other treatments – most treatments take no more than an hour. Once laser resurfacing is complete, a mild serum is applied to soothe the treated areas.
Immediately after the procedure, you can expect to look and feel as though you have a sunburn. There may be some slight redness, tenderness and mild flaking as your body sheds the old, outer layers of skin and makes way for new tissue production. Ice packs help relieve discomfort and moisturizers help minimize the appearance of flaking.
CO2 Laser Resurfacing Therapy Ideal Candidates
As more and more clients seek non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments, fractional CO2 lasers are leading the way in delivering highly effective and minimally invasive options.

Regenerative MedSpa of Buckhead Laser Skin Treatment FAQs
What is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a medical-grade non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment designed to improve the skin’s texture, prevent and treat wrinkles, stimulate collagen production, improve skin laxity, and diminish the appearance of sun damage and age spots, uneven skin tone or blotchiness. The regenerative laser skin treatments can be applied to all areas of the face, chest, neck, arms, and legs. CO Laser resurfacing therapy is also incredibly helpful in healing and lightening shallow scars from acne, surgery and stretchmarks. Considering 85% of people have acne at some point in their life, this treatment can be beneficial to people of all ages.
How does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
With fractional CO2 laser resurfacing, the laser beam is broken up or fractionated into many small micro beams which are separated so that when they strike the skin’s surface, small areas of the skin between the beams are not hit by the laser and are left intact. These small areas of untreated skin promote a more rapid recovery and healing with less risk of complications. The small areas treated by the fractional micro beams, called micro treatment zones, cause sufficient laser injury to promote new collagen production and resultant facial skin rejuvenation.
What are the Benefits of CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Signs of aging and sun damage, including lines and wrinkles (particularly around their eyes, mouth and on the forehead), skin discoloration, sun spots and skin laxity may be reduced or eliminated with CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing.

Who is a Candidate for CO2 Laser Treatment?
Co2 Laser Skin Resurfacing therapy is ideal for people in their late 40s to 70s who are unhappy with the visible signs of aging and sun-damage including pigment irregularities, wrinkles, mild skin laxity and sagging, and rough texture. Laser resurfacing is also used to treat shallow scarring from acnes, surgery and stretch marks. We also offer complementary skin rejuvenation treatments that we couple with CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing therapy if necessary, depending on an individual’s needs, to maximize results.
Talk to our medical staff about all medications your taking, including medications for acne (ex: Accutane) or anticoagulants/blood thinners. In addition, people with very dark skin or who have severe acne may not be good candidates for this procedure. Laser resurfacing is also not recommended for clients who have had chemotherapy, women who are pregnant, or for people with a history of healing problems or excessive scarring.
What do CO2 Laser Treatments not do?
The CO2 laser does not work to reduce redness or dilated blood vessels. It can actually penetrate these and make them look worse as the laser treatment causes initial redness.
How long does CO2 Laser Resurfacing Treatment take?
Most CO2 laser resurfacing treatments should not take more than an hour.
What can I expect during Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment?
Treatment begins with understanding your aesthetic concerns, goals and needs. The area is first cleansed and a topical anesthetic cream is applied to numb the treatment areas. Using the topical anesthetic, sometimes supplemented by small amounts of local anesthetic injections and oral pain medicine, allows the laser resurfacing procedure to be done with little to no discomfort. Once laser resurfacing is complete, a mild serum is applied to soothe the treated areas.
Does Laser Resurfacing for Skin hurt?
Due to the power of the CO2 laser, topical anesthetic is applied, allowing the treatment to be done with little to no discomfort. Stronger treatments to help more severe skin damage may require the addition of local anesthetics and oral medication just before the procedure, providing comfort throughout the procedure. Post-treatment pain medications are not typically needed as there is usually only a sensation of mild sunburn. Clients will receive post-treatment instructions for care and healing.
What does CO2 Laser Resurfacing Recovery look like?
From day one through day three or four, you should expect some redness, peeling and swelling. Clients typically describe their skin feeling as if it is sunburned, and you may have some bruising. It is also common to experience dryness, flakiness and tenderness in the week immediately following the procedure. Skin may look pinker than usual for four to six weeks and full results become visible within three to six months, when new skin tissue is fully revealed.
