Currently, there are a lot of effective skin care treatments that reduce signs of aging and improve the condition of the skin. These treatments range from using simple topical creams to actual procedures that can be done to improve the skin’s condition. Laser treatments, in particular, are very popular skin care options and the technology used in the treatments continue to evolve—becoming more sophisticated and effective.
What Is The Fractional Co2 Laser?
The fractional CO2 laser works by targeting tiny beams of light into the deep layers of the skin, which gives a powerful boost to the body’s natural healing and collagen producing process. Only microscopic areas of skin are treated at a time, while adjacent skin is left untreated.
How Does It Work?
The fractional CO2 laser takes the CO2 laser beam and fractionates, or pixellates that beam into thousands of tiny little shafts of light. These tiny shafts of light penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin.
Benefits of fractional co2 laser.
The benefits of fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing are pretty impressive. Since this treatment preserves healthy skin around the micro-wounds, you can enjoy faster recovery with less redness and swelling. That means you can go back to your normal routine without worrying about burns, peeling, and other side effects of other resurfacing treatments. Fractional CO2 laser treatments are a great way to encourage collagen production within the facial skin. Since the procedure creates tiny columns in the skin, the body’s healing processes are triggered – and collagen plays a major role in healing skin. Over time and with a series of treatments, your collagen levels will be sky-high, resulting in smoother, firmer, and younger-looking skin!
How long does fractional laser last?
The longevity of the results can vary from one patient to another, depending on multiple factors, including age, genetics, skin elasticity, and degree of sun damage. However, you can improve the longevity of results by protecting your skin from the sun and following a good skincare regimen. Consistent use of sunscreen and brimmed hats can help you maintain the results of your CO2 laser treatment for years.
