Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Your face ages by degrees, not overnight. It’s a matter of small details that build and break down your skin, distracting from your core beauty. Factors such as lifestyle, genetics and diet make everyone’s ongoing aging experience unique, but it all begins in the small tissue damage that lies deep under the skin.
What if you could get ahead of this process?
The good news is that Palm Beach Facial Plastic Surgery now delivers one of the very latest advances in non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures: Fractional CO2 Laser. This technology has the longest laser wavelength of all the devices on the market, which gives it a much broader safety margin -- even for darker skin types.
What Can a Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment Do for Me?
This exciting new skin procedure is effective at treating a wide range of wrinkles from fine to deep. It is often a good treatment option for severe textural changes suffered from sun damage, blotchiness, acne scars and surgical or trauma scarring. It can even be used to restore delicate eyelid skin and lines around the mouth.
For many people who have had experience with microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and other skin surfacing procedures, Fractional CO2 Laser treatment -- which is more aggressive and capable of more significant results -- may be the ideal long-term skin rejuvenation choice. In fact, it has become a new standard for skin surfacing excellence, with little or no bleeding or scabbing.
The CO2 laser breaks the beam into thousands of tiny bits of light (“fractionates”) that penetrate deep into facial tissue layers, stimulating your skin to expel old, damaged cells. It is very precise and causes little damage to the surrounding skin and tissue.
At the same time, the laser shrinks existing collagen and brings new collagen into the treated area. Because of this fractional light, smaller areas can be addressed, enabling the laser to leave behind more healthy skin to assist in healing and rejuvenation.
Fractional CO2 laser treatments are customizable to each patient. Although it is performed as a single procedure lasting about an hour, it can go deeper or shallower depending on the outcome desired. Deeper treatment will require more healing, but generally gives better overall results.
This treatment is ideal for:

- Skin renewal damaged by sun, age, or smoking
- Fine and deep skin wrinkle smoothing
- Improved texture and evenness of coloring
- Revitalizing skin firmness with new collagen growth
- Reducing scar contrast
- Removing precancerous skin lesions

After your treatment, you should see some immediate results, but the full effect can take from 3 to 6 months. Immediate skin healing can take up to two weeks, depending on how deep the treatment was. Then for the next 4 to 6 weeks, you may have some pinkness to your skin and possibly some blotchiness. As color returns, many of our patients are amazed at their tighter, glowing skin and reduced wrinkles.
