Have You Heard About CO2 Fractional Laser Therapy

Fractional laser therapy is designed to dramatically repair fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars while improving skin texture and pigmentation even on delicate skin. The treatment is a proven, safe approach to repairing aging sun-damaged skin, with many of the benefits of ablative laser skin resurfacing, but without the downtime, side effects or lengthy recovery period.

About CO2 Fractional Laser

A wide variety of fractional lasers, such as the Equinox CO2 fractional laser, are available on the market to deliver dramatic results to patients interested in skin rejuvenation. The treatment offers a superior solution for rejuvenating and resurfacing the skin. This fractional laser can be used effectively to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne and surgical scars, skin pigmentation and discoloration, sun damage, pre-cancerous as well as benign lesions and uneven skin texture.

What to Expect?

Results may vary among different patients, however, usually a single 30-minute treatment session should result in visible skin rejuvenation. There are many flexible treatment options that can be tailored to the individual patients needs, including improvement to damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, scars, sun damage and skin pigmentation or discoloration.

How does it Work?

The laser delivers thermal energy to the surface of the skin with a pattern of laser light. The laser beams cause minute perforations or holes on the surface of the skin (the epidermis), while leaving the surrounding skin intact. This destroys the old collagen of the wrinkles and induces your body to replace it with new youthful looking collagen.

The treatment is designed to deliver a youthful appearance within weeks. Improvements can continue over time as collagen continues to rebuild.
