A CO2 fractional laser procedure resurfaces your skin. It can address a variety of issues that are related to ageing and skin damage, including:

  • Age spots
  • Freckles and other uneven skin tone issues
  • Fine lines
  • Significant wrinkles
  • Shallow acne scars
  • Deep acne scars
  • Loose skin

This treatment restores brightness, evenness and elasticity to the skin. There are different types of skin rejuvenating procedures that fall under the category of resurfacing treatments. This procedure is a thermal process that involves heating the moisture in your skin with a laser.

During the process, a laser is aimed at the skin using a handheld device. This removes fine columns of skin in layers. Some skin around each column is left intact to assist with healing. The laser exfoliation removes fine lines and wrinkles. Combined with the heat from the laser, this action triggers the skin to produce new skin cells. Those cells fill in your skin’s surface, improving its texture, tone and appearance.

The heat that is produced by the laser impacts the deeper layers of skin too. It triggers collagen production, which heals the controlled damage that the laser causes. As the collagen fibers bind together, your skin becomes tighter and firmer.
