Fractionated CO2 Laser | Jacksonville Beach, FL
Rejuvenate skin texture & erase fine lines. This laser works below the skin’s surface from the top down, addressing imperfections like fine lines, visible photo aging, wrinkles, scarring and age spots. Fractionated light energy stimulates your skin’s natural collagen, rejuvenating skin cells below the surface to help smooth the creases and pockets that cause wrinkles and scars. The treatment is specific, only treating targeted problem areas – so the results are focused and effective. The downtime is less than the traditional CO2 laser, and multiple treatments may be required to reach optimum results. This procedure is completed in the office under local anesthesia. To keep you comfortable, we will supply you with a prescription for a cocktail of medication and apply a numbing cream to the treated area 1 hour prior to the procedure. A driver will be needed due to the medications taken.
Instructions for the Fractional CO2 Laser:
Every 4 hours (for the next 3-5 days):
Wash with Cetaphil (Removing all of Aquaphor)
Wet gauze and gently scrub any yellow/white skin crusting
Apply thin layer of Aquaphor (be sure to apply with tongue blades as, dipping fingers into tub can introduce bacteria.)
The healing process will take 1-2 weeks, depending on the depth of the laser. Be patient and take time to heal. You will love your fresh, new look!
