The CO2 laser is considered the most effective treatment option for reversing the signs of skin aging. Skin resurfacing can restore the tone and glow to your face through the formation of a completely new skin layer. The re-epithelialization process along with the formation of new collagen is the quickest way to minimize wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, and skin laxity.
Fractionated CO2 enables your skin to heal more rapidly than traditional CO2 treatments. With fractional laser resurfacing the laser beam is broken up or fractionated into many small micro beams. The laser beams are separated so when they strike the skin surface small areas of the skin between the beams are not treated by the laser and left intact. These small areas of untreated skin promote a much more rapid recovery and healing with less risk of complications. The areas treated by the fractional micro beams, called micro treatment zones, promote new collagen production and resultant facial skin rejuvenation.
Fractionated CO2 can provide the following benefits:
- Improve the appearance of aged and sun damaged skin
- Reduce wrinkles, lines, and enlarged pores
- Remove age spots and solar lentigines (brown pigment)
- Tighten loose skin and improve the skin’s overall texture
- Improve acne scars
- Minimize surgical scars and traumatic scars
