Fractional eCO2



What makes our fractional skin treatment different?  A full face can be treated in less than 20 minutes with minimal downtime when compared to traditional resurfacing.  There is minimal discomfort with topical anesthetic, and you will see significant improvement of your skin with the treatments.


        Fractional skin treatment has been used effectively to:


Reduce lines and deep wrinkles on the face

Tighten skin on the face and neck

Change the appearance of scars

Improve tone and texture on the chest, arms and hands 



Improve skin tone around eyelids, jowls and neckRejuvenate sun-damaged skin and improve texture

Remove pigmented lesions, minor skin irregularities


Fractional skin treatment keeps downtime to a minimum by only treating a “fraction” of the skin’s surface, leaving healthy tissue to assist in the rapid healing process.  Within days , new skin takes the place of older, sun-damaged skin.  What’s more, the laser stimulates new collagen growth, so you will continue to see improvement in your skin’s texture and tone for up to nine months.


        Following treatment you will notice some swelling and redness for a few days.  Depending on the aggressiveness  of treatment, the redness may last several weeks.  Your doctor can suggest a make-up that can be applied to cover any redness so that you can quickly resume your regular activities.  After the procedure, you will be given specific instructions on properly maintaining your new appearance.  Results from eCO2 deep resurfacing therapy can be long-term and noticeable.  Ask your physician today to schedule a consultation for this dramatic skin treatment.


How does CO2 Fractional Laser work

The fractional CO2 laser heats water within the surface layers of the skin, causing both the water and the tissue of the skin to turn to vapor. Every time the laser passes over the skin, some of the outermost layers of the skin are removed in a precise and controlled way to the appropriate depth.

The skin then heals over a period of time, as new layers of collagen are produced. The treatment results in an improvement in the appearance of sun damaged or acne scarred skin. In addition, the post treatment skin will have a healthy look along with a better texture and tone.

This intensive treatment can significantly reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and pigment (or skin color) changes on the face, neck, and other parts of the body. They can be used in sensitive areas, such as lines around the lips, eyes and even eyelids, or over the whole of the face. Acne and other types of scars and certain stretch marks can also be improved.





Fractional skin resurfacing treatment helps to reclaim your skin’s youthful texture and tone, leaving you with a lasting healthy glow.  This approach has been used to treat fine lines, wrinkles and discolorations caused by sun damage, as well as to treat acne scars.  Patients who have had eCO2 fractional skin treatment have reported significant results, often after only a couple treatments.  Your physician will work with you to customize a treatment plan specific to your skin and treatment objectives based on your skin type, desirable down times etc.  Speak to your doctor about scheduling a personal consultation to learn more about the procedure.
