Skin Rejuvenation

Many signs of aging can be effectively treated with one of the two fractional technologies. The range of treatments vary in aggressiveness, downtime, and results. The most aggressive treatment, CO2 fractional, can produce dramatic improvement for severely damaged skin with a single treatment procedure, but will require more downtime and after treatment wound care.

The less aggressive non-ablative fractional treatment can produce significant results for mild to moderately damaged skin over the course of several treatments with little to no downtime or wound care required.

Non-Ablative Fractional Treatments FAQs

How Non-Ablative Fractional Skin Resurfacing Work?

The non-ablative fractional laser is a multi-purpose skin rejuvenation laser that offers the power and precision to alter the skin—from non-surgical skin resurfacing to effective tattoo removal. The goal is to produce sufficient energy (heat) to penetrate the skin and absorb the target.

What Can It Do To Improve My Skin?

Treatments include common problems such as fine blood vessels that cause skin redness, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, excess pigment (such as brown spots), enlarged pores and skin texture. It can also remove most tattoo colors, usually over a series of treatments.

How Many Treatments Will I Need To See An Improvement?

The number of treatments will depend on the specific problem you’re addressing. For example, if you have broken facial blood vessels around your nose, one or two treatments would be likely. If you have advanced sun damage with multiple issues such as pigment, it could be more. Your doctor will assess and advise on the optimal treatment program for you.

Are Treatments Uncomfortable?

The area of the face or body that is treated often dictates how the treatment feels. Patients often describe the feeling as intense warmth or a brief snap or sting. Sometimes the doctor will prescribe a topical anesthetic to numb the area prior to treatment. Don’t hesitate to share your apprehensions about discomfort prior to treatment.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Obviously your skin will continue to age. However, to minimize on-going damage, consult with your doctor about preventative measures, such as a good sunscreen, makeup, etc. You may need to adopt the habit of wearing a hat or engaging in sports earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon, away from the sun’s peak hours. These are practical lifestyle changes that will help you retain your new, healthier skin.

CO2 - Ablative Fractional Treatment FAQ

How Does Fractional CO2 Skin Resurfacing Work?

The introduction of fractional skin resurfacing to cosmetic surgeons dramatically changed the way physicians approach resurfacing techniques. By creating tiny micro-wounds spaced apart on the skin, the doctor is treating only a fraction of the skin’s surface. Since discomfort and healing time are minimized, fractional resurfacing has become more appealing to a wider range of people. The procedure lives up to its promise to reduce skin imperfections and promote collagen regeneration, reclaiming the skin’s youthful texture, tone and color.

What Skin Conditions Will The CO2 Laser Treatments Improve?

Results will vary depending on your age, degree of sun damage and skin type. However, patients who have had this procedure, report significant changes in only a single treatment.

Reduces facial fine lines and wrinkles
Gives the skin a more firm, smooth appearance
Improves scars
Reduces sun damage, such as brown spots
Reduces skin blotches and blends skin color
Improves pigmented and vascular conditions

Is The Procedure Painful?

Everyone experiences pain or discomfort to varying degrees. Your doctor will determine how to minimize your discomfort during the procedure. Topical anesthetics are applied and sometimes oral medications are prescribed. Administering nerve blocks is another option that completely numbs the area being treated.

What Will I Look Like Post-Treatment?

Following treatment you will experience swelling and redness. If your doctor is aggressive during the procedure, the area treated will appear red for a longer period of time. In most cases, this issue resolves in one to three weeks. During that time, with the exception of the first few days posttreatment, you may apply makeup to tone down the redness. Normal activities may be resumed, in most cases, within 5-7 days.

When Will I See Results?

Within a few days, new skin will appear that is smoother and more even-toned. Your skin will continue to improve over six to nine months as the new collagen builds replacing the old collagen.

Will I Need More Than One Treatment?

It’s possible if you have deep scars and/or deep wrinkles. Also, it depends on your own expectations. You may feel after a few months that you need further improvement. However, your doctor is the best person to assess how many treatments you might need during your initial consultation.

How Long Will The Effects Last?

Obviously your skin will continue to age. However, to minimize on-going damage, consult with your doctor about preventative measures, for example, a good sunscreen, makeup etc. You may need to adopt the habit of wearing a hat or engaging in sports earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon, away from the sun’s peak hours. These are practical lifestyle changes that will help you retain your new, healthier skin.

Because the treatment is gentle, multiple passes are needed in order to obtain optimal results. With each treatment, you will notice your skin improving and because of the collagen stimulation, you maintain your youthful look.

What to expect during your treatment?

Our qualified laser therapists will apply a light layer of Spectra lotion to your skin, this lotion has a carbon base, so your skin will look as if you are wearing a mud mask.
