Achieving clearer skin has always been an issue to some people. There are a lot of products out there that claim to help, but don’t deliver on their promises. That is where Fractional CO2 Laser treatments come in.
Fractional CO2 laser is a treatment that can help with acne scars, wrinkles, and fine lines. The goal of the treatment is to reduce the appearance of these skin imperfections for an overall smoother look. It’s also used as an alternative to invasive surgical procedures such as facelifts and neck lifts because it doesn’t require any downtime or recovery time.
What is Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment
Fractional CO2 laser is a non-invasive treatment where the laser emits microthermal zones in the area being treated. The beams work together to help improve the appearance of uneven pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and other signs of aging. Unlike traditional lasers that only have one wavelength, this type delivers multiple beams that can pass into the surface level of your skin as well as deeper layers to promote collagen growth. This process stimulates new cell growth in damaged areas so they are no longer visible with the naked eye.
Benefits Of Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment
There are many benefits when you choose Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment. Some of these include:
Minimal down time – The process is done in the comfort of our aesthetic clinic with only numbing cream on the areas to be treated. You can return back to your normal routine immediately after treatment.
Minimal discomfort – Surgical skin rejuvenation treatments are often very uncomfortable, but since Fractional Co2 treatments are non-surgical, it doesn’t require sedation or anesthetic because there is little to no pain associated with it. Furthermore, most people don’t even feel any pain during or after the procedure.
No scarring – Laser treatments have always been known for leaving behind horrible scars that are extremely difficult to cover up. Fractional CO2 laser does not damage surrounding skin which means the risk of scarring is reduced significantly!
What is the Procedure Like?
Now you might be asking yourself how the procedure is actually done. Well, let us walk you through it!
Prior to your first treatment, numbing cream is applied to the areas that will be treated.
During your first session of Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment , our aesthetic doctor will need between 15-30 minutes to treat the entire face or targeted areas one time only. A total of 5-10 treatments may be needed for optimal results, but some patients see improvement after just a couple of treatments!
Who are Candidates for Fractional CO2 Laser Treatments?
Anyone who is looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, acne or dark spots can benefit from Fractional CO2 Laser Treatments. Since there is no down time involved, it’s perfect for those who lead very busy lifestyles and cannot be bothered with extensive recovery times following surgery. Those who experience pain during or after other laser treatments will also enjoy this treatment because there is no associated discomfort.
Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment: Does It Have Any Side Effects?
Fractional CO2 laser is one of those treatments that can actually provide desired results without any side effects because it treats surface as well as deeper dermal layers. This means healthier, newer cells are produced so you’ll see reduced signs of aging, acne scars and fine lines. This process also helps skin to naturally produce more collagen which can reduce sagging skin and give your face or neck a smoother look.
