Fractional CO2 resurfacing is the physician’s choice for turning back the clock on aged skin. CO2 laser resurfacing decreases wrinkles and improves texture creating healthy radiant skin. While one of the most popular skin tightening and skin rejuvenation treatments, fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing can also be an effective treatment for scars from burns, acne or other trauma. One of the advantages of using Fractional CO2 Laser is the ability to target multiple cosmetic problems afflicting facial skin at the same time:
- Uneven pigmentation from UV damage and aging
- Loose skin on neck and lax skin about the eyes
- Deep creases around the lower face and mouth from age or scaring
- Fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks
Time Tested Therapy
CO2 lasers have been around for over a decade. In that time, CO2 laser technology has improved in effectiveness as well as dramatically reduced negative side effects. With Fractional CO2 Skin Resurfacing Laser treatments, longer recovery times are no longer necessary. Results can be seen soon after treatment and continue to improve during the coming months.
Safer Than Traditional Laser
Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is safer than traditional laser resurfacing treatments. During treatment, no oral medication, injections, or sedation is required due to minimal discomfort. A topical anesthetic is applied to your skin to make the procedure more comfortable during treatment. Patients are treated faster and more precisely because the doctor has much more control and customization with the fractional CO2 laser. While delivering excellent results, this therapy is minimally invasive and extremely safe.
Shorter Recovery Time
With Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing the laser creates thousands of tiny pin points into the skin but leaves the skin around each point intact. This allows for more rapid healing. The fractional CO2 laser can also be customized to allow variable levels of penetration. But even with the most aggressive settings healing is rapid and similar to that of a chemical peel. Minimal redness and swelling only last a few days making the recovery time relatively short.
The fractional CO2 laser resurfacing transformation is truly amazing and tightens skin in a way that the other treatments cannot.
