Fractional CO2 Laser is a skin tightening and skin rejuvenation treatment in one. Results can be seen after one treatment and with proper home care maintenance can last for years. This treatment targets fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, acne and stretch marks. The laser takes and pixelates the beam into thousands of little tiny shafts of light. These tiny shafts of light penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. The skin repairs those tiny shafts by pushing out the old skin and replacing it with new.
Laser skin resurfacing with CO2 laser delivers short pulses of light energy to eliminate problematic layers of skin with heat. Recovery time is minimal. Unlike other methods which are very painful and take a long time to recover from, CO2 is far less complex and less painful. CO2 has also been proven to have better results in the long-term. The treatment fights sun damage and prevents fine lines and wrinkles. The skin texture and tone is improved dramatically and results are apparent immediately. This treatment enhances the production of collagen which gives skin its firmness.
