Fractionated CO2 Laser
Skin resurfacing with fractional lasers has helped many people reverse the signs of aging. Unlike topical creams, laser skin resurfacing works deep in the underlying tissues to fight those fine lines and wrinkles and the uneven skin tone that often accompanies growing older. Fractional laser treatments can even reduce the appearance of acne scaring, rosacea and age spots. Dr. Jason Ross (pictured left) is the only board certified Oculoplastics doctor in our area trained to perform Fractionated CO2 Laser.
Unlike traditional lasers, the CO2 Fractional Laser works by creating thousands of microscopic beams which increases the power for better results without wounding the skin.This allows for very rapid healing and improving your complexion. In more detail, the fractional laser light passes through patented optics to penetrate the skin with tiny thermal channels, only as deep as a few sheets of paper. These micro-injury sites begin healing and, as collagen remodels, scars begin to fade, texture start to improve and your skin’s inner radiance begins to shine. This means:
- New Collagen Growth to Improve Skin texture & Tone
- No Injections or Surgery
- Minimal Healing Time
Make an appointment with Dr. Ross to see how CO2 Fractional Laser can revitalize your skin.
