Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is one of the hottest cosmetic trends in the nation. In a time when skin rejuvenation and youthfulness is of the utmost importance, Fractional CO2 lasers can give people beautiful skin they want without the need for surgical procedures.
Q: What is Fractional repair treatment?
Dr. Kagan: Fractional Repair is a semi-ablative procedure that is based upon the skin’s own healing powerse. Microscopic laser “wounds” are spaced evenly across the treated skin. The deeper layer of skin is stimulated by the CO2 energy to renew and repair. Fractional Repair reaches deeper into the skin because it produces more effective wrinkle removal and skin rejuvenation. This advanced laser system delivers high precision microbeams of CO2 laser energy into the skin to smooth out fine lines, wrinkles, scars, remove brown spots and other irregularities, and tighten the skin.
Q: What makes Fractional Repair treatment better than other ablative lasers?
Dr. Kagan: The Fractional repair laser has all the benefits of traditional ablative resurfacing lasers without the prolonged downtime and significant risk of side effects. With Fractional Repair treatment, the skin heals vertically instead of horizontally as with traditional bulk ablation. In addition, clinical data suggests that Fractional Repair treatment, unlike conventional CO2 lasers, is safe for off-the-face treatments like neck and chest.
Q: Am I a candidate for Fractional Repair?
Dr. Kagan: Any patient who would like to have smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin is a good candidate. For patients who are 40 – 50 years old this procedure can put off the need for a facelift.
Everyone wants soft, beautiful skin. Unfortunately, our skin is subject to numerous experiences that leave it less than perfect.
Fractional Repair has long been the gold standard for a safe and effective treatment for fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, scars, uneven pigmentation, and large pores.
Q: Does Fractional Repair treatment hurt?
Dr. Kagan: Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. However, unlike the experience in traditional CO2 treatments, patients will feel quite comfortable immediately after a Fractional Repair treatment.
