What is Fractional CO2?
Thought to be the ‘Anti-Aging discovery of the decade’ & held as one of the most efficient ways to treat wrinkles, fractional CO2 uses a carbon dioxide laser to remove layers of skin by vaporization. Our Dermatologist, Dr. Muba Taher, determines the settings of energy to be transmitted to the skin surface, thereby controlling the depth of the penetration. This ablative, procedure is known to take years off your face today!
Wrinkle reduction, reduces ﬁne lines, improves skin texture, pigmentation improvement, freckles, minor scarring, residual tightening effect, reduce pore size, and brighten dark under eye circles.
How does it work?
The skin is treated one micro portion at a time which is repeated thousands of times by the CO2 laser.
Each micro column receives just enough laser energy to vaporize the aged skin, while also stimulating new collagen growth of surrounding tissue resulting in a deep skin rejuvenation. Residual skin tightening will often occur post treatment. Results vary by person.
What happens post procedure?
Immediately post procedure, your body will naturally start working to replace aged tissue cells with fresh new cells. Shortly after the procedure, you will notice your skin is visibly smoother, healthier and younger looking. Results will continue to improve over time. Patients can resume their normal activities within a few days and even apply makeup, however, must be cautionary with sun exposure and follow a strict maintenance routine as dictated by your physician, while the skin rejuvenates.*
Is there downtime?
Produces quick results, but requires up to 10 days of downtime (Time varies based on depth of treatment). Some residual redness may persist for up to 6-8 weeks post treatment, which is easily covered by makeup. Physician Consultation required to determine number of treatments and price.*
