Fractionated CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Performed at our Duluth, GA medical office, north of Atlanta.
Lasers have come a long way since the introduction of the original CO2 laser in the mid 1960’s. While the original CO2 laser introduced the world to the possibility of laser skin resurfacing, it also brought an unsightly “line of demarcation” between the treated and untreated skin on its’ first patients. Instead of treating the entire face like the first CO2 lasers, fractionated lasers have the advantageous ability to target very specific areas. Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center offers Fractional CO2 Laser to erase wrinkles and reduce skin blemishes with face-lift like results.
Fractionated CO2 laser treatments are used to reduce the appearance of deep facial wrinkles,melasma (spots of skin darkening), and acne scarring. In addition to areas of the face, lasers can be used to treat the neck, chest, and hands of men and women.
The CO2 fractionated laser penetrates deeper into the layers of the skin to erase more pronounced creasing or pigmentation. Fractionated CO2 laser technology utilizes a series of tiny laser columns to penetrate the dermis creating tiny wounds that the body heals by increasing production of collagen and elastin and generating “new skin.”
Instead of treating a large area, fractionated lasers target very specific areas allowing us to tailor the treatment depending on the extent of facial wrinkles or skin damage in the area. The tiny amount of skin exposed to the laser at a time makes the laser useful for a variety of skin conditions.
Your natural skin tone, problem area(s), and even your age are factors that can affect the success of your laser treatments; therefore, a consultation is required to formulate a suitable laser treatment plan.
CO2 Fractionated Laser is a carbon dioxide laser used to resurface skin and remove skin imperfections like wrinkles, age spots, damaged areas, and more. CO2 Fractionated laser skin resurfacing works by emitting scattered beams of laser light into the deeper layers of the tissue, stimulating collagen production while encouraging the sloughing of damaged skin. Unlike older technology, our CO2 Fractionated Laser does not remove entire layers of skin, but instead only removes the smallest fraction of the top layer of skin, leaving surrounding tissue intact and allowing skin to recover much faster. The result is healthier-looking skin with a youthful glow.
