Fractional Co2 Laser Treatment

What is Fractional Laser Skin Treatment?

Fractional laser skin treatment is an exciting new technology that successfully corrects many dermatological and cosmetic skin conditions, with increased comfort and minimal post-treatment pain and care. Fractional laser skin treatments give excellent results for skin resurfacing and when correcting skin conditions including scars, superficial lesions, epidermal nevi, actinic chelitis, warts, skin tags, and keratoses.

How do fractional laser skin treatments differ from traditional laser skin treatments?

Traditional full-surface ablative laser skin treatments are performed using a beam of intense laser energy that is passed over the entire skin surface to vaporize the entire top layer of skin. The damage to the tissue is extensive and takes significant time to heal and regrow a new top layer of skin (i.e., re-epithelialize the entire top layer of skin).

Fractional skin treatments deliver laser or high-powered light energy in a pattern. The fractional pattern leaves untreated areas of skin between the treated areas of skin. As these treated areas are much smaller than the surrounding healthy tissue, the healing time is significantly shortened.

Traditional full-surface ablative treatments deliver effective results but require significant downtime – patients experience a much longer healing process, and the risk of complications, including infection, is much greater. Fractional ablative treatments provide results as good as traditional ablative treatments, with far less downtime and risk.

What are the benefits of fractional laser skin treatments?

Fractional laser skin treatments have three significant benefits as compared to traditional laser skin treatments:
Increased Comfort - The fractional array of microbeams does not cause bulk damage as traditional ablative treatments do but instead cause small areas of damage each surrounded by undamaged tissue. As a result, fractional treatments are a much gentler laser treatment. Many patients tolerate the treatment well without anesthesia; other patients may opt for a light topical anesthetic.

>Increased Safety - ollowing a fractional ablative procedure, each tiny fractional column re-epithelializes (i.e., regrows the missing tissue and closes over) typically within one day. This minimizes the risk of scarring, infection, or long-term pigmentation changes.

Decreased Downtime - Depending on the type of procedure, most fractional patients can return to normal daily activities almost immediately (for fractional non-ablative treatments) or typically within 4 days (for fractional ablative treatments)
