Sun exposure, pollution, and natural aging collectively destroy the skin’s collagen supply. Collagen is the main protein of the skin’s connective tissue providing elasticity, volume, and firmness to the skin.
The CO2 fractional laser is an ablative approach where microscopic columns are bored into the surface of the skin. These tiny columns are precisely engineered to reach an optimal effectiveness depth, which then promotes collagen formation and synthesis from the inside. While this deeper process is going on, the skin’s surface is replaced with newer, fresher skin. The result is smoother, firmer skin without the complications and downtime associated with traditional CO2 fractional laser treatments.
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. Only “fractions” of the skin are treated (hence the name), but this fractional approach stimulates activity in nearby untreated cells. Effects are estimated to last an average of 10 years. Pigmentation loss is a risk for those with darker complexions, says the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. Dr. Ghohestani or a qualified member of his team can meet with you to discuss your skin and whether you are a good candidate for fractional CO2 laser treatment.
