The C02 Fractional Laser

Posted on July 31, 2018 by:

The Carbon Dioxide (C02) Fractional Laser removes layers of skin tissue in a fractionated method. The laser creates controlled burns and columns of skin are removed, leaving the skin surrounding each column intact to aid in healing. This helps to reduce skin aging and damage, also called sun freckles, liver spots, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, uneven coloration, skin laxity, textural irregularities, dull tone, and a thinned collagen layer of the face, neck, and chest. 

 
The CO2 laser is especially beneficial for those suffering from deep acne scars. Because the CO2 laser creates controlled fractioned injury, the healthy skin left between the fractioned columns helps to heal faster and stimulate the production of new, healthy collagen to fill in the scars surface of the skin. 
 
From start to finish, the procedure takes about 60 to 90 minutes and the majority of that time (40-60 minutes) is spent numbing. Downtime lasts 7-10 days.
