FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER

Overview: About the Fractional CO2 Laser Technology

The CO2 laser is a carbon dioxide laser used in skin resurfacing. Its effects are similar to those of chemical peels and dermabrasion, except that the laser removes skin layers by vaporization rather than with chemicals or a sanding device.

 

Basically, it uses the most advanced skin revitalization laser treatment technology for the best anti-aging results. In fact, studies have proven that fractional CO2 laser treatment not only reduces the effects of aging on the skin, but also reverses existing signs of aging plus acne, age spots, and wrinkles.

 

After just one treatment, skin appears significantly healthier, rejuvenated and smoother than before.

How It Works

Your cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist specifies the amount of energy transmitted to the skin's surface by the laser beam and controls the depth of penetration.

The CO2 laser system can be used in several ways: "focused" for cutting skin without bleeding, "defocused" for superficially removing your skin, and "ultra pulsed" for facial resurfacing. When the CO2 laser is delivering powerful, rapid pulses, your doctor is able to resurface the skin for cosmetic improvement.

The CO2 laser is commonly used to treat wrinkles, blotchiness or age spots, and scars from acne or other causes. It can be used on the entire face or specific areas. Certain other characteristics of your skin, such as its thickness and texture, may influence whether you are a good candidate for laser resurfacing. Some patients may benefit from the laser's mild "tightening" effect on the skin, particularly in the lower eyelid area where the skin often becomes somewhat loose as a result of aging.

Why Should I Undergo Fractional CO2 Laser Treatments?

Science and research back the fractional CO2 laser technology. We offer this treatment because our certified and experienced dermatologist have carefully vetted the treatment and seen real results.

 

The results are practically immediate, and patients will notice that their wrinkles, age spots, scars are far less noticeable as the skin healing progress. As time goes on, it promotes natural growth of newly-produced collagen which helps the skin become tight, moisturized, and vibrant. It reduces the need for using over-the-counter treatments making this the more economical solution.
