Fractional CO2 Resurfacing in Rochester, NY
What is Fractional CO2 Resurfacing in Rochester?
Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing is a highly sophisticated laser that gently and precisely removes the top layer of sun-damaged and aging skin. It erases lines, tightens the skin, fades brown spots, and wipes out acne scars. New skin cells resurface the treated area and lay down new collagen that is indistinguishable from that of newborn undamaged skin. This renewal process is similar to the result of a deep chemical peel yet without its complications.
How is Fractional CO2 Resurfacing performed in Rochester?
We use the CO2 Resurfacing laser like an artist’s brush, tailoring the skin rejuvenation procedure to your individual needs. Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and the mouth are smoothed. Deep laugh and frown creases can be softened. Acne scars and some uneven surgical scars are rendered much less apparent to the eyes. Even delicate areas on the lips and eyes can be rejuvenated safely and without the surgeon’s knife. Depending on the type and depth of the wrinkle or scar, three to five sessions may be performed with weekend recovery time required. For those who want a quicker result and have 7-10 days of downtime available, we can do a single aggressive treatment. Fractional CO2 can also be used on the neck and décolleté area.
Patients can expect no bruising or bleeding afterwards. Most patients have minimal pain, even after full-face treatments. After the treatments, patients are given detailed instructions on how to care for the skin to promote a speedy recovery. With the fractional CO2 resurfacing, the skin is pink for 2-3 days then there is peeling for a few days. Swelling and discomfort are minimal, but some swelling may occur, particularly around the eyes for few days. Most patients are able to go on with daily activities after two days. Repeat treatments can be done in 4-6 weeks.
