FIGHT SUN DAMAGE WITH CO2 LASER

What is Fractional CO2 Laser?

What is a Fractional CO2 Laser?

  • Frax CO2 or Fractional CO2 Laser is a laser resurfacing method that uses laser beams to create zones of heat injury to the skin. Certainly, this is proven to stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin cells to replace old, damaged cells. As a result, this turnover of skin cells produces collagen, which is just the body’s natural healing process accelerated.

How Fractional CO2 Laser works?

  • By addressing the skin at the cellular level, we can effectively turn back time on your skin and produce a more youthful and radiant appearance with your natural skin texture. To clarify, Fractional CO2 uses the power of carbon dioxide to evaporate the top layers of the skin. As a result, these dermis layers tend to accumulate damage over the years, usually in the form of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, and scars.

Does Fractional Laser boost collagen production?

  • By removing these damaged skin layers, CO2-lasered skin allows the body to create new skin cells rich in collagen. This process addresses small areas of skin at a time, leaving the surrounding skin and tissue untouched. Therefore, CO2 Laser is one of the best skin tightening solutions available for almost all skin tones.

Who is a good candidate for Co2 laser?

  • If you want to perform skin resurfacing, or if you desire to repair your acne scars, this is one of the best noninvasive resurfacing treatments ever.

Is Fractional CO2 Laser painful?

  • Similar to Intense Pulse Light (IPL), after your Fraxel CO2 Laser treatment, your skin will likely look red, peeling, scaley, and feel tender like a sunburn. These side effects on the treated area may subside within a few hours or linger for a couple of days, depending on the depth of your procedure and how your body heals. That is to say, that our medical staff will provide you with instructions on how to care for your skin during this vulnerable time. It’s important to keep safe from sun exposure during your recovery period.

What is the downtime for Fractional co2?

  • Our medical staff will provide you with instructions on how to care for your skin during this vulnerable time, including applications of ice to minimize swelling and topical moisturizers designed to promote healing to the dermis. In conclusion, most patients will not feel comfortable returning to social situations for 3-5 days until these side effects have resolved.
