CO2 Laser Resurfacing

What Is CO2 Laser Resurfacing ?

CO2 Laser Resurfacing, mainly through Helix from Cartessa and CO2 Laser Resurfacing using CoolPeel™, represents a modern approach to enhancing skin appearance and health. This service utilizes advanced laser technology to delicately remove damaged outer layers, renewing a healthier, smoother skin surface underneath. The process is customized to minimize heat damage, making it a more comfortable patient experience. It’s effective on various skin areas, including the face, neck, hands, and chest, addressing wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, uneven skin texture, and sun damage. Skin resurfacing is offered to individuals aiming to refresh their skin’s appearance, seeking a solution for aging, sun exposure, and other imperfections. Results become visible as the skin begins to heal, which can be a few days to weeks post-treatment, with the full benefits observable over the following months.

For those interested in the potential benefits of skin resurfacing, FG Aesthetics and Medicine in Missoula, MT, specializes in providing these treatments with the expertise required for optimal results. You may book an appointment today and take the first step towards achieving a clearer, more youthful complexion with our professionals guiding you.

Treatments Areas


Skin resurfacing on the face targets wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and fine lines. It promotes collagen production, leading to smoother and more youthful-looking skin.


The neck area often shows signs of aging, such as on the face. Resurfacing can reduce the appearance of crepey skin and fine lines, resulting in a more uniform texture and tone.


Sun exposure often damages the delicate skin on the chest, leading to sunspots and wrinkles. Skin resurfacing helps lighten these spots and improves overall skin quality.


For areas with scarring, including acne scars or surgical scars, resurfacing smooths out the skin and promotes new, healthy cells, making scars less noticeable.


Although not a direct treatment for active acne, skin resurfacing can significantly reduce the appearance of acne scars and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation by encouraging skin regeneration.

The Ideal Alternatives To Botox

The term “Botox” is often used synonymously with wrinkle relaxers, mostly because Botox was the first brand to market neuromodulators for wrinkle correction. But over the past couple of decades, numerous other brands have entered the market. Botox isn’t the only or even the best wrinkle relaxer on the market — Dysport and Xeomin are just as effective. Below, we discuss the differences between Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin.


Dysport has the same active ingredient as Botox, but it has minor differences in the trace proteins used. In terms of effectiveness and efficiency, both Botox and Dysport are the same. You can expect your wrinkles to gradually dissipate within a few days, and the results last for 3 to 4 months. Some patients say Dysport works faster than Botox, but that claim is mostly based on anecdotal evidence.


Xeomin is also made of botulinum toxin type A, but it has one major difference — there are no trace proteins. Botox and Dysport contain trace proteins that enhance the durability of the products. But Xeomin doesn’t have any additional proteins, so your body doesn’t develop a tolerance to the neurotoxin used. While Botox and Dysport may stop working effectively after a few years of continued use, Xeomin always retains its effectiveness.

Anyone looking to improve their skin’s appearance by reducing signs of aging, sun damage, acne scars, and uneven texture.

The improvements from skin resurfacing can last several years, depending on individual skin care and protection practices.

There may be minimal downtime, with some experiencing redness or peeling that subsides within a few days.

Follow pre- and post-treatment instructions from your provider, including avoiding direct sun exposure and using recommended skincare products.
