What is a CO2 Fractional Laser?
The CO2 Fractional Laser is a routine procedure, performed by our cosmetic dermatologist in NYC, effective in treating acne scars and resurfacing and tightening the skin. The procedure can be used on all skin types and treat the face, neck, chest, hands and arms.
What to expect from CO2 Fractional Laser Treatments
Patients in New York City and throughout Westchester County who participate in this procedure will experience skin tightening resulting in reduced wrinkles, loose skin and improved skin laxity resulting from the contraction of collagen fibers. Skin texture will improve as pigmentation is removed and pore size, wrinkles, acne scars and other skin texture problems are reduced.
What to expect following your treatment
Downtime following this procedure is typically seven to ten days. Patients are advised to use moisturizer for the first 48 hours. Skin may become pink by the seventh day, but nothing that can't be covered up with make-up. After you begin to develop pink skin, collagen synthesis begins and skin quality further improves over the next six months.
This procedure is recommended to those not looking to commit to a facelift, but still looking to get significant improvement in skin texture and tone. CO2 Fractional Laser Treatments are extremely effective in providing long-lasting results, without the expense or potential complications that are associated with more aggressive forms of beauty enhancement treatments.
