CONSIDER TREATMENTS 

What is Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing? 

Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing uses a laser to create zones of heat injury to the skin. Dramatic improvements to the skin’s condition are created by this procedure. Laser skin resurfacing has become the gold standard for producing healthier, younger-looking skin.

Fractional CO2 is the perfect treatment option for those who wish to get rid of age spots, wrinkles, freckles, liver spots, lentigines, deep static lines (rhytides), skin discoloration, rough skin texture, scaring, stretch marks and other skin surface irregularities. The Fractional CO2 laser is also effective for treating loose skin. The Fractional CO2 laser can be used on the face, chest, hands, neck, arms, hips, and abdomen

THE PROCESS 

How does Fractional CO2 Work? 

The CO2 Fractional Laser removes layers of skin tissue in a fractionated method, giving patients a more youthful appearance. Only twenty to thirty percent of a targeted area is actually treated with the laser, but the entire treatment area benefits from the procedure.

Recovery time is much shorter than skin resurfacing procedures performed with non-fractional CO2 lasers, since less skin is affected by the laser.

New, rejuvenated skin begins to flourish as the healing process occurs after a Fractional CO2 skin resurfacing treatment. Skin is smoother, more uniform in color, and has better elasticity. The procedure also triggers collagen production, and the collagen fibers in the skin also begin to tighten. Many patients refer to laser skin resurfacing with the fractional CO2 laser as a “mini face lift.” Laser skin resurfacing also has the added bonus of removing pre-cancerous skin lesions such as actinic keratosis.

Long Term Care 

Laser resurfacing treatments have lasting results, however, skin will continue to age after the treatment. Patients can maintain results by protecting their skin from the sun and investing in a quality skincare regimen from Radiant Boutique. Quality skincare products that are custom tailored to your needs will effectively address your cosmetic concerns as they arise.

Results 

After only one treatment, patients see optimal results. Within a few days, new skin will take the place of the older and damaged skin. Since Fractional CO2 laser treatments stimulate new collagen growth, you will continue to see improvement in your skin’s tone and texture for up to nine months following the procedure.

RECOVERY & RESULTS 

After a skin resurfacing treatment, patients will notice mild to moderate swelling and redness, followed by peeling skin, tenderness, and some minor discomfort. Most patients will heal over a period of about one week.

Length of Treatment 

Fractional CO2 laser treatments take about 20 minutes to perform. After the procedure, patients will spend an additional 20 minutes having a healing ointment applied, which soothes the skin.

Patient's Comfort 

As with any aesthetic procedure, a patient’s comfort is our top priority. We will communicate with all patients about options for managing discomfort throughout the procedure.

THE PROCEDURE 

Fractional CO2 laser treatments are non-surgical and performed in our office’s procedure room.
