How and for what?
CO2 therapy provides the necessary collagen for a smoother and glowing skin. Thanks to CO2, dark circles under the eyes are also treated and the circulation of the skin improves, avoiding blood clotting. This therapy also stimulates the production of elastin, which gives elasticity and firmness to your face. Thus, the CO2 therapy disappears both fine and deep wrinkles.
The photon laser treatment allows to restore vitality to the face, firming the skin, giving it volume and tightening it. Thus, not only the skin is regenerated, but also the face is hydrated. The treatment promotes the production of elastin and collagen. It repairs each of the layers of the skin, thus eliminating wrinkles, dark spots and dark circles under the eyes.
With CO2 therapy, each session can last at least 20 minutes and you can start noticing changes after 6 days. With the photon laser, the treatment lasts 45 minutes. With both treatments, wrinkles can be seen to disappear and lighten spots and dark circles under the eyes. It depends on your specific case which one is better for you.
It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight, keep the skin hydrated, avoid heavy make-up during the first days, and avoid intense physical activities. The use of moisturizers and sunscreen may also be recommended to keep the skin in optimal conditions.
