Fractionated CO2 Laser
As we age, our skin thins and appears more translucent. Sun damage becomes more evident through age spots and a decrease in collagen is pronounced through folds and wrinkles. Laser skin resurfacing is an effective way to correct these issues.
What is Fractional Skin Resurfacing?
Fractional skin resurfacing treatment helps to reclaim your skin’s youthful texture and tone, leaving you with a lasting healthy glow. This appraoch has been used to treat fine lines, wrinkles and discolorations caused by sun damage, as well as to treat acne scars. Patients who have had eCO2™ fractional skin treatment have reported significant results, often after only a single treatment. Your physician will work with you to customize a treatment plan specific to your skin and treatment objectives. Speak to your doctor about scheduling a personal consultation today.
Laser Skin Resurfacing: What to expect
Fractional skin treatment keeps downtime to a minimum by only treating a “fraction” of the skin’s surface, leaving only healthy tissue to assist in the rapid healing process. Within days, new skin takes the place of older, sun-damaged skin.What’s more, the laser stimulates new collagen growth, so you will continue to see improvement in your skin’s texture and tone for up to nine months. Following treatment you will notice some swelling and redness for a few days. Depending on the aggressiveness of treatment, the redness may last several weeks. Your doctor can suggest a make-up that can be applied to cover any redness so that you can quickly resume your regular activities. After the procedure, you will be given specific instructions on properly maintaining your new appearance. Results from eCO2 deep resurfacing therapy can be long-term and noticeable.
