CO2 Laser Skin Treatment
For many years, carbon dioxide or CO2 laser skin resurfacing has been considered the gold standard in skin resurfacing—but it came at a high price in terms of discomfort and downtime. Traditional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is done under sedation and completely removes the top layer of the skin. The result: open, draining wounds and a month of recovery time. And traditional CO2 laser treatments have a risk of hypo-pigmentation—that is, taking color out of the skin. The traditional CO2 laser uses light to generate heat and ablate, or burn off all the top layers of the skin and stimulates new collagen growth.
The latest technology: fractional ablative CO2 lasers treat only a fraction of the skins area. By firing microablative columns of laser energy at the skin, instead of treating the entire surface of the skin, the fractional laser leaves columns of healthy, untouched tissue between the areas that are ablated—resulting in less discomfort, down time and risks. Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing has nearly all of the benefits of the traditional CO2 laser, but dramatically less down time, and much lower risks of complications. This new technology was rated the #1 anti-aging breakthrough by WebMD.
