CO2 Laser Fractional Skin Resurfacing



Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing for Stretch Marks, Acne & Surgical Scarring, Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Melasma (brown pigment) and Improved Skin Tone & Color

The anti-aging breakthrough of the decade, according to many doctors, is a skin-resurfacing treatment known as CO2 fractional laser therapy. Combining the effectiveness of traditional carbon dioxide lasers — long thought to be the gold standard in wrinkle removal — with a new application technique, it delivers powerful results without the traditionally harsh side effects.

“Essentially, you are getting all the benefits of laser resurfacing, still the best way to remove wrinkles and acne scars, but you’re getting it without the downtime and without the horrendous complication rate,” says David Goldberg, MD, director of Skin Laser and Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey and clinical professor of dermatology at the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York City.

Fractional Skin Before & After

How does it work?

Laser resurfacing uses light energy to bore tiny holes in the skin, putting the body’s natural collagen production on fast-forward. Here’s what’s new: Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing does this in a way that prevents damage to the top layer of skin, offering maximum results with minimal recovery time.

It is quick, accomplished in one or two sessions, with about four days downtime. Effects can last 8 to 10 years.

Using advanced laser technology, a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser for skin resurfacing precisely removes outer layers of damaged skin to reveal the underlying skin which is softer, smoother, and younger looking. CO2 and erbium laser technologies are the two most commonly used laser skin resurfacing treatment options. The CO2 laser is used in the treatment of deeper facial lines and wrinkles, while the erbium laser is used for fine lines to moderately deep wrinkles.

A CO2 laser allows your cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist to perform skin resurfacing procedures that reduce or eliminate more pronounced lines, scars and wrinkles than similar treatments. This is done by removing deeper layers of damaged skin and stimulating the regeneration of healthy skin underneath.

The latest technological advancement in the field of laser resurfacing is the use of light beams that are either pulsed or scattered at a very high rate. This minimizes heat damage to the skin. It also allows a more powerful CO2 laser to be utilized for deeper tissue removal.. This technology allows the laser skin resurfacing treatment to provide some of the most dramatic results possible.

During a CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment, a local anesthetic is used to relieve potential discomfort.

Who is a good candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

As we age, our skin succumbs to the effects of sun, gravity, and even our unique facial movements, to create lines and wrinkles that make us look older than we feel. A good candidate for carbon dioxide (CO2) laser skin resurfacing is typically an individual who has developed significant facial lines and wrinkling.

A candidate may also have facial scars from acne or uneven pigmentation they wish to correct. The best way to find out if you are a candidate for a CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment is to contact us at 561-776-0116 for a complimentary consultation.


By precisely removing damaged skin layer by layer, a CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment is able to reduce the appearance of scars, lines and wrinkles, “turning back the clock” on your complexion and revealing the more youthful looking skin that lies underneath. The CO2 laser — when used for the skin resurfacing procedure — can also lessen the appearance of scars and many other skin imperfections. Benefits include not only the effective correction of moderate to deep lines and wrinkles, but also treatment for uneven pigmentation, photo-damage, pre-cancerous spots, and a host of other skin imperfections and benign lesions.

Is CO2 Laser Treatment Safe?

Yes, a CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment is perfectly safe. With the predictability of the CO2 laser, skin can be precisely ablated layer by layer to provide incredibly safe results with minimal side-effects. We will discuss possible complications and how they can be avoided during your recovery.
