Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is the latest innovation for micro-ablative skin rejuvenation! Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is ideal for the treatment of:

  • pigment
  • fine lines and superficial wrinkles
  • skin laxity / texture
  • superficial acne scars

What is Fractional Laser CO2 Skin Resurfacing?

Fractional Laser CO2 Skin Resurfacing is your single-treatment solution for beautiful younger-looking skin. It is a single treatment with minimal patient downtime. During the procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light is used to smooth out lines, wrinkles, and scars, remove brown spots and other irregularities, and tighten the skin. It also stimulates formation of new underlying collagen to continue improvement over time.

With Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment, only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.

Think of your skin as a digital photograph in need of high-quality restoration or touch up. Just as a damaged painting is delicately restored one small area at a time, or a photographic image is altered, pixel by pixel, Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing improves your appearance by affecting only a fraction of your skin at a time with thousands of tiny microscopic laser spots.

Is it painful?

There is little to no pain associated with the procedure-most patients say they feel warmth similar to a sunburn. A topical numbing agent may be used prior to the procedure to minimize any discomfort.

What benefits should I expect?

Most patients experience a dramatic effect on the skin:

  • Causes immediate skin tightening
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and softens deeper frown lines
  • Noticeably improves skin tone and texture
  • Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin

When will I see improvement and how long will it last?

Results of treatment are LONG TERM and, with proper sun protection and a proper skin care regimen, can last for many years. Most effects of treatment become visible right away, whereas others-such as new collagen formation-build up gradually and results in continued smoothing over time. Therefore, most people continue to show improvement up to 6 months after the procedure.
