CO2 Fractional

CO2 Fractional Laser

The latest advancement in minimal downtime fractional laser treatments for aging skin. The procedure is performed in a single treatment with minimal downtime, typically four–seven days. Recognized as the gold standard of laser resurfacing systems, the CO2 fractional laser delivers thousands of tiny laser pulses in a spaced pattern over the skin.

The primary targets of laser skin resurfacing include fine lines and wrinkles of the face, upper lip, cheeks and forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, pucker marks, frown lines, brown spots, uneven skin tone, scars, and acne scars.

The results of CO2 treatments are dramatic and, with proper sun protection, can last for many years. Most effects of treatment become visible right away, whereas others—such as new collagen formation — build up gradually and result in continued smoothing over time. Most people continue to show improvement up to six months after the procedure.

The CO2 fractional laser treatment produces a dramatic effect on the skin:

  • Causes immediate collagen contraction
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and softens deeper frown lines
  • Noticeably improves skin tone and texture
  • Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin
