Fractional CO 2 technology is used for skin rejuvenation, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, improvement in skin texture, redness, pigmentation and acne scarring. The Fractional CO2 laser uses the CO2 laser wavelength, which is considered by leaders in skin care as the “Gold Standard” for collagen regeneration, and the laser to use for improving sun damaged and aging skin.
The Fractional CO2 laser is unique in several ways, but most unique in the way it delivers the laser treatment. Unlike more traditional lasers, including the older CO2 lasers, the Fractional CO2 laser treats the skin with thousands of micro-point sized dots, thereby leaving a good portion of healthy tissue behind. This more targeted treatment helps regenerate new collagen and consequently more youthful, healthier looking skin while allowing for much quicker healing times and safer treatments.
The other unique aspect of the Fractional CO2 laser is patient comfort and the ease of post-treatment care. Topical anesthesia is all that is required and with the fractional technology there is minimal swelling, no oozing or weeping and the skin regeneration time is in days, not weeks to months as compared to the CO2 laser. Ultimately, you will see quicker results with less social downtime. With facial treatments healing in 3-5 days and the neck and chest healing in 5-7 days this treatment has become our treatment of choice for a cost effective, little to no downtime skin rejuvenation procedure.
The before-and-after photos demonstrate some of the remarkable results obtained with the Fractional CO2 laser, and is the reason why this affordable treatment has rapidly become one of the most popular skin treatments.
