Considered one of the most impressive breakthroughs in anti-aging technology, fractional CO2 lasers are becoming increasingly popular in skin resurfacing. At Metro Dermatology, our fractional CO2 laser topical therapy reduces visible signs of aging without surgery and with no side effects.
What is a fractional CO2 laser?
As skin ages, collagen and elastin, which increase structure and elasticity, decrease, leading to fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the surface. There are several treatments available to reverse the signs of aging and improve the appearance of the skin, but laser resurfacing techniques are known for their ability to safely and effectively restore youthful skin radiance without damage or irritation.
Traditional lasers require extensive recovery and can sometimes cause irreversible damage to the skin. Fractional CO2 laser technology combines the efficacy of traditional CO2 lasers with new technology that delivers laser energy in a smaller fractionation column.
Once applied to the treated area, the dispersed energy penetrates the skin’s surface and stimulates the body’s natural healing response, which begins the production of new collagen and elastin. The surrounding healthy skin is not damaged, improving patient safety.
What are the benefits of a fractional CO2 laser?
Choosing a fractional CO2 laser over other skin rejuvenation treatments has several benefits, including:
Fast treatment times that easily fit into any busy schedule
Laser resurfacing produces visible results and promotes continuous improvement of the skin
Unlike surgery or other invasive procedures, fractional CO2 lasers require minimal recovery time
Mild redness is common after treatment and should subside after a few days, but usually depends on the individual
Often, visible lines and wrinkles can be improved with only one or two sessions
How long will the results last?
Full results are achieved in a short period of time, and your smooth skin can last for years after treatment, with follow-up treatments as needed. After treatment, patients should follow a good skin care regimen to maximize results and maintain natural skin health and beauty.
Am I suitable for fractional CO2 laser?
Healthy men and women with visible lines and wrinkles and no contraindicated skin or health problems can usually receive the treatment. Patients with darker skin may require further evaluation to prevent potential complications. Our medical team will determine during your consultation whether this treatment is right for you.
