As a person ages, their collagen production begins to decline, leading to the breakdown of the skin’s underlying support structure. Daily exposure to UV rays, other environmental elements and genetics can cause the skin to become discolored and premature wrinkles may emerge. Treatments with the Fractional CO2 Laser provide wrinkle reduction, overall tissue tightening and textural improvement. The skin will have a smoother, tighter appearance and pigmentation will be diminished.
WHAT DOES A FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER DO?
A Fractional CO2 Laser treatment is a semi-ablative procedure made effective by the skin’s own healing powers. Microscopic laser “wounds” are spaced evenly across the treated skin. The deeper layer of skin is stimulated by the CO2 energy to renew and repair. Fractional lasers reach deeper into the skin and are therefore able to produce more effective wrinkle removal and skin rejuvenation. This advanced laser system delivers high precision microbeams of CO2 laser energy into the skin to smooth out fine lines, wrinkles, scars, remove brown spots and other irregularities, and tighten the skin.
WHAT MAKES FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER TREATMENT BETTER THAN OTHER ABLATIVE LASERS?
The Fractional CO2 Laser has all the benefits of traditional ablative resurfacing lasers without the prolonged downtime and significant risk of side effects. With this non-surgical treatment, the skin heals vertically instead of horizontally as with traditional bulk ablation.
AM I A CANDIDATE?
Any patient who would like to have smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin is a good candidate. For patients who are 40–50 years old this procedure can stall the need for a facelift. It’s a safe and effective treatment for fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, scars, uneven pigmentation, and large pores.
DOES THE FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER TREATMENT HURT?
Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. However, unlike the experience in traditional CO2 treatments, patients will feel quite comfortable immediately after a treatment.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER TREATMENT?
- Better results compared to non-ablative treatments
- Minimal downtime
- Safe and effective for all skin surface areas
- Promotes tissue contraction and skin tightening
- Your appearance continues to improve over a period of up to six months
- Can be performed to delay more invasive surgery like a facelift
