What is CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?

CO2 is a Carbon Dioxide laser that has been used for more than 25 years in the Aesthetic Industry for treatment of skin conditions such as fine and coarse wrinkles, scars of various origin, uneven pigmentation and dilated pores. When a CO2 beam of light comes in contact with the epidermis it heats and vaporizes the skin tissue, instantly removing the superficial layers of the skin, scars and wrinkles while smoothing out the surface of the skin. This skin remodeling occurs with new skin and collagen growth.

The CO² Advantage

CO2 is the versatile fractional CO2 system that enables you to precisely target and effectively treat the skin’s surface, middle and deep dermal levels, plus perform traditional CO2 resurfacing and laser excision of lesions.

Grow your practice with this lighter, faster, and more versatile solution for skin resurfacing, traditional ablation and minor dermal excisions. CO2 gives you the ability to treat both superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously with precision-controlover the intensity, pattern and depth of ablation.

Fractional Skin Resurfacing and its Benefits

Fractional Skin Resurfacing is a Revolutionary Delivery System that increases the possibilities for busy people who want healthy, younger looking skin with minimal pain in short period of time. It combines the benefits of a CO2 laser with a micro spot size of 300 microns that can treat 20-100% of the scanned area. Using a computerized pattern generator and a new scanning algorithm, thermal heat is dispersed within the epidermis while evenly treating damaged areas. This particular algorithm dramatically reduces pain, the need for anesthesia, and recovery time. Single treatments can show a significant improvement in skin texture and color.

Traditional CO2 Resurfacing Mode Shapes

CO2 Innovation: Variable Treatment Modes

The CO2 system provides a total of six different treatment modes including four fractional ablative treatment modes and pattern shapes, a traditional resurfacing mode, and an excision mode that includes defined shape and freehand modes for minor dermal excisions.

Who are Your CO2 Patients?

Optimal for Fitzpatrick skin types I-III, CO2 is the obvious choice for skin resurfacing when you and your patients understand the treatment trade-offs of superior, single treatment results for elevated discomfort and downtime. Flexible and targeted, CO2 technology makes this decision easier by helping you deliver predictable and often dramatic results quickly and with less discomfort than some other systems.

Risks

Erythema (redness of skin); the laser-treated areas have a distinctive redness representing increased blood flow due to the growth of the superficial tissue and collagen. It will gradually fade during the first two days.

Inflammation (swelling); Treatment presents a minimal amount of swelling that can last up to 24 hours.

Hyperpigmentation (tanning); this is presented after the third day of the procedure but then begins to shed and reveal younger healthy looking skin.

A personal interview and clinical examination will be conducted to obtain relevant facts about our medical and dermatologic history, and any medications you are currently taking or have taken in the recent past.

If you are prone to cold sores, you need to ask your doctor for an antivirus prescription before the treatment.

Fractional Treatment has been proven safe for the face, neck, chest and hands.
