What Are the Benefits of the Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment?

Looking for beautiful, magazine-worthy skin?  Want the kind of complexion that will make you walk out of your home without make up – and feel great about it?

Then it’s time to introduce yourself to fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing!

What Does It Treat?

If you haven’t already heard about this cosmetic treatment, you’re in luck: fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is one of the fastest and most effective ways of rejuvenating your facial skin.  Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is an excellent choice for people who suffer from the following complexion issues:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne and trauma scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Rosacea
  • Sun damage
  • And more!

How Does It Work?

Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is an innovative procedure that uses laser energy to create tiny columns within the treatment area.  These columns trigger the body’s healing processes, which helps to encourage cellular turnover for younger, healthier-looking skin.  Additionally, the fractional columns leave healthy tissue untouched, so you’ll walk out of the procedure room with less redness and swelling.  However, patients should expect some redness, swelling, and burning after treatment.  These side effects can be managed with pain medications and topical creams.

What Are the Benefits?

The benefits of fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing are pretty impressive.  Since this treatment preserves healthy skin around the micro-wounds, you can enjoy faster recovery with less redness and swelling.  That means you can go back to your normal routine without worrying about burns, peeling, and other side effects of other resurfacing treatments.

Fractional CO2 laser treatments are a great way to encourage collagen production within the facial skin.  Since the procedure creates tiny columns in the skin, the body’s healing processes are triggered – and collagen plays a major role in healing skin.  Over time and with a series of treatments, your collagen levels will be sky-high, resulting in smoother, firmer, and younger-looking skin!
