Fractional CO2 resurfacing is performed under local anesthesia in our office and is a resurfacing CO2 laser system that provides treatment both on the surface and deep in the dermis with a single treatment. Using the latest technology, the outer layers of damaged skin tissue are removed in a precise and controlled manner with gentle pulses of light. The treatment simultaneously penetrates deep into the skin to remove old, damaged skin cells, stimulate your body’s own natural healing process, and replace the cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin. Following the procedure, the new layer of healthy skin has a new support structure of healthy collagen and elastic tissue. It is tighter and baby fresh.
Fractional CO2 Resurfacing is FDA approved for the treatment of:
- Irregular texture
- Sun spots and age spots (pigmented lesions)
- Sun-induced redness (vascular dyschromia)
Non-Fractionated CO2 Laser
For deeply sun damaged and aged skin with etched in lines and wrinkles, fractionated or fully ablative laser resurfacing is extremely beneficial. Using the latest technology the outer layers of the skin are removed in a precise and controlled manner with gentle pulses of light, up to the layer of damaged tissue. When the skin resurfaces a new layer of healthy skin is present with a new support structure of healthy collagen and elastic tissue. The new skin is tighter and baby fresh. You can dramatically improve the fine lines in the delicate areas around the eyes and lips.The procedure is performed under local anesthesia in our office. You can expect to be back to your normal activities in 10 days and look like you did 10 years ago!
