What is CO2 Laser Resurfacing?
The Phoenix Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing treatment can produce dramatic, lasting results in just one treatment. CO2 Laser Resurfacing in New York City diminishes sun spots and age spots, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and can minimize scarring on the face and hands. It also imparts a balanced skin tone and tightened skin.
This facial rejuvenation process works by removing sections of the epidermis, which is the outermost layer of the skin. The laser energy also heats the inner layer of the skin (called the dermis).
This encourages the production of collagen, which improves overall skin tone and texture. Collagen is essential for maintaining skin elasticity and structural strength. Leaving untouched sections of the epidermis allows these sections to aid in the healing process for faster recovery. This is the advantage of fractional laser procedures.
The epidermal layer heals and regrows after treatment, which gives the skin a tighter and smoother appearance.
