What is the CO2 laser and the fractionated CO2 laser and how do they work?
The CO2 laser and the fractionated CO2 laser are used to create microscopic channels in the skin and remove the very superficial sections of the skin giving beautiful results. It is important to treat the skin with clean hands until healed (about 7 - 10 days).
The deeper channels of the treatment continue to heal over several months. It is normal for the skin pinkness to fade gradually: the pinkness indicates the building of new collagen, helping create firm skin with an improved texture and reduction of wrinkles, pores, skin irregularities and pigment spots.
what else does Dr. Patel do to the skin when using the co2 laser?
We also combine the use of nano fat grafts with the laser in all our patients as we get the most superb improvement in the skin. In fact, our Facelifts and Hammock lifts are known for the improvement the skin as much as for the amazing changes we create in the facial and neck structures.
