The Lumenis Fractional
CO2 Laser is the platinum standard for laser resurfacing. This laser treatment
can improve the texture and reduce the appearance of sun damage and common,
unwanted signs of aging in eyelids, face, neck, chest, and hands. Patients can
expect skin tightening after just one treatment. This treatment is great for
reducing the size of pores, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, as well
as acne scars. The CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment takes just
about 40 minutes to complete (for a face treatment) and the recovery time is
typically less than a week. Patients can expect to see additional collagen
growth for up to 6 months following the procedure, as well as long-lasting
results for years to come.
Ideal candidates for this treatment have some sun damage or signs of aging. Patients who’ve taken Accutane in the past 12 months or have a history of keloid scarring should not undergo treatment.
