What is Lumenis Accupulse CO2 Laser?

The Lumenis Accupulse CO2 laser is a state-of-the-art fractionated ablative laser that is used to resurface the skin. It removes the thin outer layer of skin and heats the underlying skin or dermis. The perfect time to do this procedure is fall or winter when we can avoid the intense rays of the sun and allow the skin to heal. Dramatic results can be achieved by this super collagen boosting treatment.

While you may need to protect the skin with an ointment for a few days, you can be back to makeup typically in one week. While we will only perform this treatment within safe parameters, in general, the deeper the treatment, the longer the healing time, and the more dramatic the result.

The CO2 laser will correct sun-damaged skin, uneven pigment, fine lines, deep wrinkles, large pores, and scars. CO2 lasers are amazing at brightening and tightening the skin.

What does fractionated mean?

Fractionated means the laser pokes holes into the skin rather than removing all the skin. This allows deeper penetration of the skin with quicker healing than if all the tissue was removed. The red dots in the grid are where the skin has been ablated. The non-red portions are intact skin. Treating the skin in this manner allows faster healing time and less complications.

What does ablative mean?

Ablative means the outer layers of skin are destroyed. This happens when the laser heats the water in the skin causing the tissue to vaporize. This results in a controlled burn resulting in redness, weeping and tender skin. The end result is new skin!

FAQ

How long it takes to heal depends on how healthy your skin is, how deep we penetrate the skin and how many holes we put in it. The more damaged the skin, the deeper the penetration and the more holes we place means longer healing time. Most patients are back to makeup within 4-7 days, but deeper treatments can take up to 2 weeks.

We provide you with the products you need to use on your skin directly after treatment to help the skin heal its best. These products include occlusive agents to keep irritants from affecting the wounded skin, serums as needed and of course, sunblock.

While not everyone heals the same, this is one of our clients at 3 days after treatment. We used deeper settings on her lower face, lateral cheeks and upper eyes. Notice where we treated her lighter (the forehead) is not nearly as red.

CO2 laser skin treatments requires good cooperation from the patient to ensure healthy healing. Follow directions, ask questions, alert the office if anything seems off, avoid things that can irritate or infect the skin and of course, stay out of the sun till fully healed.

The Accupulse Laser is a powerful laser that works best on certain skin types. Unfortunately, we cannot treat darker skin types, pregnant women, over infections, people with certain health conditions, people who smoke and people who keloid or scar easily.

Anytime the skin is penetrated infection is a risk. Other risks include scarring, dermatitis, poor wound healing, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, increased redness, herpes activation, and unpleasant cosmetic results.

CO2 is excellent to reduce wrinkles, tighten the skin, remove pigmentation, reduce acne and other types of scars and soften dry, damaged skin.

Before & After

What Our Clients Say

During my years working in the cosmetic industry I have had several different injectors… doctors, surgeons and nurses. I have to say Laura Carlsen is the BEST. She has a gentle touch and an artist’s eye, she listens to her patients and is committed to achieving THEIR desired results. Not only did get me amazing results I saw her treat hundreds of patients with the same outcome. I trust her so much that still fly to Denver from NYC (even with 1000’s of good injectors here) to be treated by her. If you are looking to enhance and freshen up your look without being “overdone” go see her, you will be glad you did.

Tasha

The facility is very clean and inviting. Friendly staff. Most importantly, Laura is amazing! She is extremely knowledgeable, honest, And professional. I would recommend her and her facility over any other.

Jenna D.

This is the place to go if you are wanting a little work on your skin, face or body. Artistry was well named for this business as Laura (the owner) is a true artist at her craft. There is no one else that I would even allow to give me injections than her. And she is warm and friendly-I always leave feeling better about the world.

Lisa A.

I had the most remarkable experience a few weeks ago… Laura, who I admire and respect came in on a Saturday and not only gave me a unbelievable micro infusion facial but, also botox and just the perfect amount……
She listen too my concerns about not too much! Which is a beautiful thing because a lot of nurses do what they think you need, Laura did exactly what we discussed and this is why I will always make a special trip whenever possible from park city!

Laura A.

Artistry Skin & Laser treated me so well. Once you walk into the office you are greeted & welcomed by Courtney. She makes sure you are taken care of & offers herself in any way possible. I come to see Annette, a registered nurse esthetician for skincare & treatment. Annette is so friendly and makes you feel comfortable as soon as you sit in her chair. I recently had microneedling done, and am so thrilled with the outcome. This office is clean, welcoming, professional, and efficient. I would recommend any treatments done here. Whether you are struggling with acne, or just need a facial, Artistry Skin & Laser is the place to go! I will continue to get all my treatments here!

Charlie T.

Laura has been my provider for over 5 years. I followed her from a previous office to her own medi-spa! She is knowledgeable, her office is more than ‘Covid Clean’ and the staff always stays on point with my balances in my Alle & Aspire offers. She is well worth my drive from Colorado Springs just for her talents. Laura has new staff offering treatments and I would not hesitate to avail myself of their talents. Just haven’t had the opportunity, yet! I highly recommend Artistry to my friends and family- my sister is even a client. Please trust your appearance to Artistry Skin and Laser- you will not be disappointed!!

Jennifer

I live in the Ken Caryl area, and am so excited I found this place! I have been needing to get my skin on track for months and feel like I have finally found my answer. Laura took time to educate me on their skincare products, and start me on an easy-to-follow regimen. She also gave me a dermal infusion the help hydrate my skin, and it certainly did the trick. I can’t wait to come back for my next treatment!
