Fractionated CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Fractionated CO2 laser treatments are performed to reduce the appearance of deep facial wrinkles, melasma (darkened areas of skin), and acne scarring. In addition to areas of the face, fractionated lasers can be used to treat other areas of the body such as the neck, chest, hands, and more.
The CO2 fractionated laser deeply penetrates into the skin’s layers/ dermis by creating tiny wounds that the body repairs by increasing production of collagen and elastin and generating renewed, and flawless skin.
The process of directing a light source to target a selected area of the skin seeks to only damage certain zones, (producing tiny dot-like treated areas on the skin), leaving the other zones within it perfectly intact; hence only causing fractional damage. This allows the skin to heal much faster than if the whole area was treated.
The length of time for the procedure is dependent on how many areas are being treated. typically for the face, it takes about 30mins. The patient can be awake fro this procedure, though topical numbing medication is certainly recommended.
Within about a week, the majority of the redness and inflammation will have subsided and the skin will start to appear healthy and glowing. The benefits continue for years to come with proper skin care and proper skin protection!
