Fractional CO2 Laser

Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

As people age, their skin starts to break down and collagen production begins to slow down. When this happens, the skin becomes much more sensitive, and individuals will likely suffer from premature wrinkles, acne scars, discoloration, and stretch marks. The Fractional CO2 Laser significantly reduces signs of aging by rejuvenating and tightening the skin.  If you are unhappy with your skin’s appearance, perhaps this treatment is for you! With long-term results, it is one of our most popular.

 

How does the Fractional CO2 Laser work?

The FDA-approved Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fractional Lasers work quickly and efficiently by replacing damaged skin with fresh, youthful skin.  Aiming for deeper sections of the skin, the laser heats collagen beneath the dermis, inducing collagen growth and creating firmer skin. The laser targets aging and/or damaged skin by inflicting miniature wounds to the skin’s inner layers, triggering the production of new cells. The laser beam is fractionalized, meaning treated areas of the skin will be surrounded by untreated areas; this reduces pain for the patient and also promotes quick, long-lasting collagen production. We enjoy offering significant procedures like the Madonna Peel and Summer peel that are growing increasingly popular. If you are in need of sessions to help improve your skin, please contact us 212-832-2225.

 

What is the recovery process?

After the procedure, swelling will occur in the treated area for up to seven days. Collagen will continue to form for up to six months post-treatment!

Treats:

  • Deep wrinkles
  • Textural changes in the skin
  • Scars
  • Loose skin
  • Sun damage
  • Blotchiness in the skin
