How It Works
Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing improves your appearance by affecting only a fraction of your skin with thousands of tiny microscopic laser heat channels. Since only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, the areas of untreated skin form small “bridges” to rapidly speed up healing. This technique makes the healing process much faster than traditional CO2 with minimal downtime and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner, delivering powerful results without the traditionally harsh side effects!
Fractional Laser CO2 Skin Resurfacing is an exclusively customized treatment solution that does require 5 to 7 days of downtime. However, clients who have had CO2 tell us that it is highly worth it, especially considering the results and that it can be done non-surgically. During the procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light is used to smooth out lines, wrinkles, and scars and remove brown spots and other irregularities. It also stimulates formation of new underlying collagen to continue improvement over time for a skin-tightening effect.
What To Expect
Within the first few weeks after treatment, results include tightening of the pores, lessening of fine lines, improvement of crepey skin texture and rough sun-damaged areas, reduction of acne scarring, and removal or reduction of sun spots and redness. The skin appears fresher and rejuvenated. After 30 days, the collagen remodelling begins; tightening occurs and continues for the next 3–6 months
In a recent study, we found that wrinkles can be divided into three groups. Mild superficial wrinkles can disappear completely. Moderate wrinkles tend to become superficial wrinkles. Deep wrinkles diminish into moderate wrinkles. We can improve wrinkles around the eyes, crepe paper type changes seen on the cheeks, saggy upper and lower eyelids, and sun damage.
