Over time, the effects of sun exposure take their toll. You start noticing the fine lines, wrinkles and sagging, all of which can make you look tired, sad and older than you feel. In the past, the role of sun exposure in aging was underestimated and sunscreens didn’t protect against the aging/cancer (UVA) rays that cause premature winkles, poor texture and tone dyschromia (redness, brown and white spots). Using laser technology, Dr. Cockerham can reverse the effects of sun damage and provide you with a fresher, more youthful appearance.
The CO2 laser is considered the “gold standard” for facial resurfacing. Unlike other lasers, this technology works on all skin types, typically with one treatment. Dr. Cockerham has decades of experience performing laser facial rejuvenation for women and men with sun-damaged skin using CO2 lasers. She has been selected as a Center of Excellence by Lumenis® to teach other physicians the most advanced techniques.
Dr. Cockerham will consult with you to discuss which laser procedure is best suited to address your particular skin issues. The advanced technology is “fractionated” which means you get wonderful results with minimal downtime and discomfort.
The laser can be used to resurface your face, eyelids or other areas where skin texture and tone are a problem.
The rejuvenating effects of laser facial resurfacing will reset your appearance and will slow the aging process as long as proper skin fitness is maintained with medical-grade topical products (KCMD) and daily sunblock.
