CO2 Fractional Laser Treatment is an incredible treatment. Wrinkles, stretch marks, burns and scars can all be treated with the CO2 fractional laser with impressive results without harsh side effects.
Collagen is the main protein that keeps skin looking young and line free. Over time sun exposure, pollution and the natural process of aging destroys collagen therefore increasing wrinkles. The CO2 fractional treatment laser uses light energy to create tiny holes in the skin. These holes put the natural collagen created by the body into high speed, creating extra collagen and reducing wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, burns and scars.
There will be redness and swelling that lasts about two days. According to the American Society for Dermatological Surgery http://www.asds.net/, patients with darker complexions may be at risk for pigmentation with any laser surgery.
