Co2 Fractional Laser treatments are a non-surgical skin resurfacing approach for treating sun damage, scarring, and fines lines and wrinkles using Carbon Dioxide energy and fractional laser technology.
The MixTo Co2 Fractional Laser is a supervised medical procedure that involves skin resurfacing to reduce the signs of aging and sun damage. We start by first numbing the area that is being treated. Our nurse will then use a innovative fractional laser technology hand-piece to deliver pulses to the treatment area. The hand-piece uses Co2 energy and laser to heat and vaporize the epidermis. This will destroy the superficial layers of skin and immediately smooth out the surface of the skin. The re-growth of new, healthy skin and increased collagen production will keep your skin looking refreshed and new.
Patients may experience a burning sensation similar to a sunburn immediately after the procedure. This feeling is only temporary and will resolve within a few minutes to a few hours. A post treatment home care regimen with post treatment instructions will be provided. Downtime usually lasts between 5-7 days and may include redness, swelling, and/or peeling on the treatment area. For best results, it is important to follow all of the post treatment instructions.
