What Is CO2 Laser Resurfacing & How Does It Work?
Laser skin resurfacing is an FDA-approved treatment for:
- the minimization of fine lines
- some acne scars
- age spots
- uneven pigmentation
It works by safely penetrating deep into the skin, breaking down uneven pigmentation and stimulating the production of collagen to give skin a tighter, more youthful appearance.
The best candidate for laser skin resurfacing with ActiveFX is someone with a light skin tone and no active acne. We can help you determine whether you’re a good fit for treatment during your consultation.
The SkinSpirit Experience
At SkinSpirit, we offer several solutions for CO2 laser resurfacing. Each treatment includes a computer-controlled laser peel of the dermal layers that improves skin tone, fine lines, crepiness, uneven pigmentation, and surface imperfections by triggering a natural healing response and collagen renewal.
Here’s a little more information on each type:
|Energy||Using ActiveFX laser with less energy||More energy than LightFX||Different handpiece that allows us to go deeper into the skin||The most aggressive treatment|
|Treats||Indications are for improving brown spots and mild texture improvement.||Indications are for brown spots & moderate texture improvement.||Perfect for people that don’t have any brown spots but need tightening. Maximum impact on fine lines, wrinkles and tightening.||Maximum correction of brown spots, maximum texture improvement.|
|Down Time||3-5 days||5-7 days||3-5 days||5-10 days|
Skin resurfacing with heavier settings is a tried-and-true approach to skin rejuvenation. By precisely removing layers of skin, the process corrects fine lines and wrinkles, smooths skin and acne scars, softens pucker marks, and repairs skin discoloration.
The results of CO2 laser resurfacing, or ActiveFX resurfacing, are generally quite dramatic and long-lasting.

ResurFX – A non ablative solution to smoothing wrinkles, skin tightening, and acne scarring, ResurFX is offered in both California and Washington locations. Several treatments are required to achieve results but recovery time is short as is the treatment time itself.
Fraxel – Like Active FX solutions discussed above, Fraxel goes deeper to provide more dramatic results than ResurFX, with a slightly longer recovery time. It is used primarily to correct skin discoloration issues and is offered only in some California clinics.
