Solar damage

The new versions of CO2 laser resurfacing work layer by layer of the skin, using pulsed light energy that removes thin layers of skin with minimal damage caused by heat waves to the surrounding structures of the skin.

In Baja Plastic Surgery & MedSpa Center we use the last generation fractionated laser CO2, which allows a direct penetration into the tissue which is not possible with other laser systems, but at the same time leaves microscopic areas of undamaged skin which allows the quick recovery of tissue. Likewise, a high degree of firmness and regeneration forming new collagen and elastin in your skin. The discomfort is almost minimal and the recovery time is short.
