Various modes of skin treatment promise rejuvenation and peeling back the years. All have their pros and cons, but fractional Co2 laser pixel laser resurfacing offers dramatic, fast results with no down time or pain. After just one approximately 30 minute session, your skin looks much better.
Fractional laser resurfacing is a state-of-the-art method to rid your face of lines and wrinkles. It also reduces the appearance of scars and minimizes pore size. It can also lighten brown spots and improve skin damaged by too much sun exposure. As you age, your skin begins to droop. Fractional laser resurfacing reverses that drooping. You’ll notice immediate improvement in skin tone and texture after your sessions.
How It Works
Other types of Co2 lasers produce results, but patients undergo a longer recovery period than with fractional Co2 pixel laser resurfacing. This type of laser generates minute beams, so only the targeted area is affected. The laser microbeam carefully vaporizes the skin’s outer layer via tiny holes. Since surrounding skin is not treated, healing takes place much more quickly and the patient experiences few, if any, side effects. It is also suitable for use on more delicate skin, such as your hands or neck. Fractional Co2 pixel laser resurfacing stimulates your skin’s collagen production, so your complexion continues to improve for up to six months post-treatment.
You receive topical and/or local anesthesia prior to treatment so the entire procedure is painless. Afterward, you may or may not experience minor discomfort. Within a few days, the treated skin darkens and peels off. You must keep your skin lubricated during this process and use a moisturizer once the skin peels. For most patients, that’s all that consists of postoperative care.
A Youthful Glow
As the saying goes, youth is wasted on the young. You don’t appreciate the youthful glow of your skin until it is gone. Along with reducing lines and wrinkles, fractional Co2 pixel laser resurfacing restores a youthful glow your face may not have expressed in decades. The glow appears completely natural, as the laser promotes your skin’s innate ability to heal itself. Your friends and acquaintances will simply think you look terrific, rather than wondering if you’ve had “work” done.
