AcuPulse fractional Co2 Laser

FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER RESURFACING

The CO2 laser smooths fine lines and wrinkles and reverses sun damage and age spots, resulting in more youthful, smooth, and younger-looking skin. The laser delivers tiny concentrated beams of heat energy that create microscopic channels that trigger collagen and elastic fiber production, while leaving some unaffected skin in between the channels to reduce healing time. The result is deep dermal regeneration that dramatically improves your skin elasticity and appearance. The Lumenis AcuPulse Laser that we use is the gold standard in CO2 laser treatments.

At the Center for Oral and Facial Surgery, our patients love the incredible results from COlaser treatment. Its ability to erase years from your appearance without surgery has made this one of the most popular skin rejuvenating treatments we have available.

How does AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser work

AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser is a skin resurfacing workstation that uses state of the art technology for all skin resurfacing needs.

Why use AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser as a resurfacing treatment?

AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser is an ablative laser resurfacing system that features state of the art technology. The fractional laser system includes SuperPulse technology and 11 built-in treatment modes. The SuperPulse technology provides the lowest level of thermal damage, making it more gentle on the skin and could result in less injury to the tissue. Fractional CO2 treatments consist of faster healing and better results.

 

What’s the difference between ablative and fractional skin resurfacing?

In Fractional Resurfacing treatment the laser heats a small column of skin to destroy unwanted pigment or color and to help promote new collagen growth to tighten the skin. Only a small column of skin that is treated while the surrounding skin areas are not. This allows the surrounding non-treated areas to provide the nutrients to heal the treated column of skin faster than traditional ablative treatment. This means They will have less redness, less downtime, and quicker healing process
