SCARS • PIGMENTATION • STRETCH MARKS • LOOSE SKIN • WRINKLES
Improve the beauty of your skin with our Fractional Resurfacing CO2 Laser! This minimally invasive treatment helps to revitalize and improve skin laxity and skin discoloration. Our Fractional CO2 Laser is extremely effective at minimizing wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, and overall skin laxity. You can dramatically improve your appearance and skin tone with our CO2 technology.
The CO2 Laser procedure acts on the epidermis (i.e., top layer of skin) to help expose the underlying dermis. During the healing process, the underlying skin helps to regenerate collagen and stimulate growth of a healthy new top layer of skin leading to younger skin and improved appearance.
Our CO2 Laser provides an ideal combination of ablation and heat. Wavelengths at around 10,000NM provides the perfect combination of therapy to provide tissue contraction and minimal resurfacing. Clinical literature demonstrates that skin resurfacing of wrinkles, rhytids, and furrows with CO2 laser increases the amount of sub-epidermal collagen, leaving your skin with improved laxity and smoother skin.
Our CO2 Laser can treat the following:
When the skin undergoes a period of rapid stretching, the stress causes damage to the skin’s connective tissues. As the tears are repaired, small red scars form resulting in the appearance of stretch marks. While their color may fade over time, the lines will usually remain, often becoming white.
Our CO2 Laser can improve the color and skin texture associated with stretch marks, with minimal pain and downtime. The treatments replace the older scarred tissue with new collagen and elastic fibers, minimizing the appearance of stretch marks and leaving patients with smoother, better-looking skin.
ACNE SCAR / SURGICAL SCARS
Scars & Acne Scars are a common problem for many patients as they frequently develop after trauma to the skin. As the body repairs the wound, fibrotic tissue replaces the injured skin, forming a scar. The type of scar that develops depends on the cause of injury, the depth of the wound, its location, and other variables.
Our CO2 Laser treat a wide range of scar types using an array of advanced technologies. The treatments replace compacted scar tissue with healthy new collagen, reducing or removing the appearance of scars with lower risk and less pain than surgical approaches, and with excellent clinical outcomes.
Lifecycle and hormonal changes can affect the distribution of color (melanin) in our skin, leading to the appearance of sun spots, age spots, or melasma- a dark, patchy facial discoloration condition.
Our CO2 Laser can remove the appearance of spots and pigmentation by targeting the melanin in the darkened area, clearing all layers of the pigmentation and revealing even-toned, unblemished skin. The treatments are specially designed for patient comfort and are safe and effective for all skin types, including dark skin.
As we age, the tone and texture of our skin changes. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear, age spots and blemishes may develop, and the texture of our skin can become coarse and uneven.
Our skin resurfacing technology to smooth out and balance the skin- improving overall skin tone, elasticity and texture and reducing superficial pigmentation and pore size, while helping to bolster the skin against future aging.
