CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing
At Park Avenue Dermatology, we are proud to offer the latest in CO2fractional laser resurfacing technology.
For fine wrinkling around the eyes, mouth, and for those “bags” under the eyes, laser resurfacing may be the treatment for you.
With as little as 7 days of downtime, this new technique can completely resurface your irregularities and remove your brown spots. It stimulates the production of new collagen to continue the overall improvement over time. We offer Active FX® for superficial skin layers and Deep FX® for deeper skin layers.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM LASER RESURFACING?
The procedure is performed in the office with a topical anesthetic cream that is applied 60 minutes before the procedure begins. Most patients say they experience a warm sensation during the procedure followed by the feeling associated with getting sunburned. With a gentle cleanser and moisturizing regimen, your photo-damaged skin will begin to flake off in 2 days. After 3-5 days you can wear make up again. Oral pain medications are prescribed for our patients but you must have a driver to return you home after the procedure.
The benefits of fractional CO2 laser resurfacing are numerous. Fractional laser treatments produce a dramatic effect on the skin by:
- Reducing wrinkles and fine lines , and softening deeper frown lines
- Noticeable improving skin tone and texture
- Stimulating new collagen formation
Results for the laser treatment are long term and with proper sun protection will last for many years. Most effects of treatment are visible right away, whereas others – such as new collagen formation – build up gradually and become more evident over time. Therefore, most people look even better 3-5 months after the procedure.
