CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing Produces Powerful Results With Less Downtime

April 9th, 2014

Elite MedSpa now offers CO2 Fractional Laser for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation.

You want to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, but you just don’t want to be “red-faced” and uncomfortable for 10 days.

For years, the adage “no pain, no gain” could easily be applied to laser resurfacing with CO2 lasers. While this popular ablative laser treatment could easily produce amazing results in the treatment of sun-damaged skin, fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, acne scars and uneven pigmentation, it still left patients wanting … that is, wanting to cover up the redness and take pain pills.

Fortunately, doctors such as Sheila Calderon, M.D., of Elite MedSpa, now utilize “fractional laser resurfacing” to produce powerful results with less side effects.

The idea behind fractional laser treatment is that with each laser pass, the amount of skin actually hit with the laser is only a fraction of the area traditionally covered by a more powerful ablative laser. For example, a single pass of the Fractional Laser may only affect 25 percent of the skin its light appears to touch.

The Fractional Laser ingeniously “hits” the skin in such a way that thousands of microscopic perforations (tiny holes) are created; however, the skin around and between these perforations remains intact. This allows the skin’s top layer to heal rapidly. As collagen is generated, the skin is remodeled and tightened and imperfections improve.

Right now Elite MedSpa is offering fractional laser treatment with the Matrix Laser, one of the best ablative CO2 fractional lasers available.

About The Matrix Laser

The innovative design of the Matrix Fractional CO2 Laser System takes fractional CO2 resurfacing to the next level.

The Matrix Fractional CO2 Laser package optimizes traditional CO2 treatments by producing MicroAblative Columns (MACs) of injury to the tissue while preserving untreated skin in-between spots. This promotes rapid re-epitheliazation and long-term collagen remodeling while offering a patient comfort level and convenience that approaches a non-ablative resurfacing.

The UltraFine Fractional Scanner offers a wide range of treatment options. The operator can select multiple settings including size, shape, density and duration, tailoring to the specific needs of each patient. The UltraFine Fractional Scanner is fast, effective and efficient. The UltraFine Fractional Scanner boasts an 18mm spot size and can complete a full face resurfacing in approximately 15 minutes.
