Fractional CO2 skin resurfacing uses laser technology to target deep layers of the skin. Unlike other surface level treatments, fractional CO2 skin resurfacing can treat tougher concerns rooted deep within your skin. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from treatment!

Reduce blemishes and scarring

After your fractional CO2 skin resurfacing treatment, the outer layers of your skin will peel for several days to a few weeks. Along with dead skin cells, surface level blemishes peel away to reveal new, smoother, and healthier looking skin. As your skin continues to heal you will notice sun spots, scarring, and other discoloration has improved. The result is a more even complexion and smooth texture.

Improve fine lines and wrinkles

CO2 skin resurfacing isn’t just treating blemishes, it works below the skin’s surface to heat deep layers, promoting the growth of new collagen and elastin. These are the key ingredients to keeping your skin full and youthful. Unfortunately, we begin to produce less collagen as we age, resulting in lines and wrinkles. After CO2 skin resurfacing, your collagen will increase to build stronger skin with fewer lines and smoothed wrinkles.

Long-lasting results

The great thing about fractional CO2 skin resurfacing is that results are long-lasting! You won’t have to worry about spending time and money on constant touch up sessions. Patients typically continue to see improvements for nine months. The best way to prolong your results is to follow a healthy skin care routine and protect your skin from the sun. You may also opt for a mild chemical peel or other gentle facial treatment to maintain your smooth, youthful skin.
