What Does a Fractional CO2 Laser Treat?
A fractional CO2 laser can help to treat a number of different skin conditions. This helps to lower the signs of aging while enabling you to achieve a more radiant appearance.
Some of the different conditions that this treatment can help with include lowering the appearance of fine lines, enhancing your complexion, and reversing any loss of skin tone you may have experienced.
How Does a Fractional CO2 Laser Work?
A fractional CO2 laser is a type of semi-ablative laser that is used for facial rejuvenation. It works by getting rid of a portion of the epidermis, which is the thin outer layer of the skin. Underneath this layer, you have the dermis, which the laser will heat. The aim of doing this is so that collagen fiber growth is stimulated. The treated area will then appear a lot smoother and tighter once the epidermis begins the healing process and starts to regrow.
How Long Until I See My Results from CO2 Laser?
It is vital to recognize that everyone is different, and so result times can differ from person to person. You can expect the laser to showcase results in anything from a few weeks up to six months. This really depends on the severity of the skin conditions you were experiencing. Needless to say, Dr. Lanfranchi will provide you with all of the aftercare instructions and advice you need.
