“When it comes to skin resurfacing, the Fractional CO2 Laser will give you the most results with a single treatment, as this one treatment is like having multiple non-invasive treatments at once. Your healing process will take a few days, but most patients reason that the significantly refreshed appearance that they receive is well worth the process and the wait!”- Liet N. Le, MD
Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing refers to the use of a laser to create zones of heat injury to the skin. Due to dramatic improvements in skin condition that is created by this procedure, laser skin resurfacing has become the gold standard for producing healthier and younger-looking skin.
Fractional CO2 is a great treatment option for those who wish to get rid of age spots, freckles, liver spots, lentigines, wrinkles, deep static lines (rhytides), skin discoloration, dull tone, rough skin texture, traumatic or acne scars, stretch marks and other skin surface irregularities. The Fractional CO2 laser is also for effective for treating skin laxity (loose skin). The Fractional CO2 laser can be used on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, hips, and abdomen.
Following a skin resurfacing treatment with the Fractional CO2 laser, you will notice mild to moderate swelling and redness, followed by peeling skin, tenderness, and some minor discomfort. While the recovery time will vary by individual, most patients will heal over a period of about one week.
Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing provides optimal results in only one treatment. Within just a few days, your new skin will take the place of the older and damaged skin. Additionally, since the Fractional CO2 laser stimulates new collagen growth, you will continue to see improvement in your skin’s tone and texture for up to nine months following the procedure. Laser resurfacing treatments have very long lasting results. However, your skin will of course continue to age after the treatment. You can maintain and prolong your results by protecting your skin from the sun and by investing in a quality skincare regimen from Radiant Boutique. Quality skincare products that are custom tailored to your needs will effectively address your cosmetic concerns as they arise.
