Benefits of Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing
This treatment offers the best results for improving the health and look of your skin. If you have wrinkles and lines you wish to reduce, fractional CO2 laser treatments help by fostering the growth of new collagen. By increasing your skin’s collagen production, lines and wrinkles become reduced and the overall surface texture of your skin benefits. Sun-damaged skin also benefits from fractional laser resurfacing because hyperpigmented cells will be replaced by new, healthier, normally-pigmented cells.

The Process of Receiving Fractional CO2 Treatments
When you decide to get fractional CO2 laser resurfacing, you will typically only need to make one visit for the treatment to take place. Afterward, you will see a dramatic improvement over the next 6 months. Beginning a recommended daily regimen of a good sunscreen in the morning and a retinoid cream before bed is critical. Encouraging new collagen and healthy skin cell growth will be key to reducing lines and sun spots.

Who Should Choose Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing?
Patients who wish to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and sun-damaged spots can benefit from laser treatments. Patients who suffer from acne scarring. A personal consultation with Dr. Buka can determine whether fractional CO2 laser treatments or another service will most benefit your skin.
