CO2 fractional

CO2 fractional laser treatment is an updated method of skin resurfacing with the help of the carbon dioxide laser beams. Laser is an advanced resurfacing technology that uses a microscopically small laser beam to remove or modify damaged skin tissue layers. The technique is to direct only the laser on the column tissue, which is a fraction of a tissue, so that the remaining tissue is intact. The technique was evolved to reduce the healing time and downtime with minimal pain from the ordinary laser treatments.

How Does it Work?

A special wavelength of light, a CO2 laser, is emitted to contain the absorption of the water in the skin. The laser vaporizes the water, thus taking away skin layers and then it causes the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Specifically, the fractional nature of the laser means that only a small area is treated at once, which stimulates the recovery by leaving the surrounding tissue intact.
