A CO2 Fractional resurfacing laser is carbon dioxide laser which precisely removes deep outer layers of damaged skin and stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin underneath. The CO2 treats fine to moderately deep wrinkles, photo damage, scarring, skin tone, texture, crepiness, and laxity. A fractionated CO2 treatment helps regenerate new collagen and consequently more youthful, healthier looking skin while allowing for shorter healing times and safer treatments than traditional methods.
Carbon dioxide laser beams penetrate the top skin layers through micro channels reaching into the dermis. It creates tiny microscopic areas of thermal damage that stimulate new collagen production and replace damaged skin surface by new epidermal cells.
Our laser treatments can target an assortment of skin conditions such as, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, hyper pigmentation and scarring. These treatments vaporize the outer layers of damaged skin, revealing new skin beneath. Once healed the new skin can appear smoother and more youthful. The length of these results is dependent on your daily skincare routine and sun protection.
For those that have suffered from acne in the adolescent or adult life you may have scars left behind. Our laser treatments can assist in accelerating the skins healing process which will aid in the reduction of scars and help restore a smooth and even complexion.
It has been said that you can tell someone's age by looking at their hands. With Phoenix's skin rejuvenation process, wrinkles, skin damage, and unwanted age spots will be reduced and removed.
After your laser treatment swelling, redness, or tenderness is normal. You will be given a topical ointment to apply for the first few days.
Daily sunscreen application is necessary after healing to protect the newly laser-resurfaced skin. A broad- spectrum sunscreen is recommended, which screens both ultraviolet B and ultraviolet A rays. Use a sunscreen specifically formulated for use on the face with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30. Liberal moisturizer application is also recommended after healing. You can resume application of Retin-A and/or glycolic acid products approximately six weeks after the procedure, or as directed by your healthcare provider.
Initial results will be apparent within weeks of treatment. Full results, however, can be seen 3-6 months after the initial treatment, once the skin has completely healed. Improvements from a CO2 laser procedure may be seen for many years after treatment.
