With this Detroit procedure, carbon dioxide or CO2 laser is used on a computerized scanning head to achieve tightening of the skin and eliminating deep creases, frown lines and other facial wrinkles. It is a great treatment for deep acne scars. This will result with growth of the more youthful deeper skin and shrinkage of the collagen fibers which are the building blocks of the skin resulting with a younger and smoother skin.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia or under sedation, however for smaller areas like around the mouth or the eyelids, only local anesthesia is necessary.
This type of laser provides depth control making the procedure much safer and requires shorter recovery.
