Fractional CO2 resurfacing can form a whole new skin layer showing the new you with a glow and tone that you will be showing off to everyone. The fastest most effective way to minimize wrinkles, age spots, sun damage and skin laxity is a process called re-epithelisation along with the formation of new collagen.

What Does Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing Treat?

High Definition Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing effectively treats several signs of aging like wrinkles, jowls and deeply furrowed brows while also lifting sagging skin and restoring youthful, natural looking facial contours. Many common skin problems and signs of aging can be treated including:

  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Facial lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Skin pigmentation
  • Sagging Skin

Candidates for Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing:

If you have fine lines or wrinkles around the eyes, mouth or on the forehead, shallow scars from acne or skin that has not responded to other forms of treatment, then you may be a good candidate for Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing.

High Definition Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing is not recommended for people with active acne or tanned/dark skin, as it can cause hyper-pigmentation, or dark spots in patients with these characteristics.

What to Expect After Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing:

Following resurfacing the treated areas should be kept clean and out of the sun as sunlight and environmental toxins can cause damage to the healing skin. You should expect some mild redness and a sensation similar to sunburn for 1-2 days following treatment. Cold compresses can help alleviate any discomfort. In addition to avoiding exposure to sunlight, hot water should not be used to wash the face for the first 2 days. Wait at least 10 hours following treatment to wash your face, and avoid products that may cause irritation. Stick to mild soaps that do NOT exfoliate. Pat-dry the face, and avoid wearing makeup for 4-5 days while the skin heals.

Once the skin has healed you will be left with a new, soft complexion. The Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing procedure acts on the top layer of skin cells to reveal the underlying dermis. In the process, the underlying layer of skin regenerates collagen and stimulates growth of a healthy new top layer of skin leading to younger appearing skin.
