Skin Resurfacing – Fractional CO2
Fractional CO2 skin resurfacing treatment helps to reclaim your skin’s youthful texture and tone, leaving you with a lasting healthy glow. This approach has been used to treat fine lines, wrinkles and discolorations caused by sun damage, as well as to treat acne scars.
The laser delivers thousands of tiny columns of heat deep into the skin, ablating (destroying) old skin cells and inducting new collagen formation. Within days, new skin takes the place of older, sun-damaged skin. You will continue to see improvement in your skin’s texture and tone for up to nine months.
Swelling and redness after skin resurfacing treatment is common. The redness can last for several weeks depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment. Your doctor can suggest make-up that can be applied to cover any redness so that you can quickly resume your regular activities. Results from CO2 deep skin resurfacing therapy can be long-term and noticeable.
