Fraxel CO2 NYCAt Dr. Ostad’s New York dermatology practice, we strive to provide the best possible solution for each patient. Because every person is unique, we utilize a wide variety of devices and products to accomplish that goal. One of the most powerful and versatile lasers in our collection is the renowned Fraxel Co2.
About the procedureThis laser is well-known for its nearly instant benefits in reducing signs of sun damage, wrinkles, and poor complexion. The device delivers precise levels of laser energy to the skin’s surface, causing upper layers to rapidly shed.
Because Fraxel works with fractionated Co2 energy, it stimulates cell turnover and skin rejuvenation, with minimal discomfort or side effects. You will experience skin flaking for about a week after treatment. As the old dead, dying, and damaged cells slough off, a beautifully youthful and healthy layer will emerge.
It is especially important that you protect treated skin from the sun’s harmful rays after laser treatment. Some people choose to schedule procedures such as Fraxel Co2 during the winter months, when they spend more time indoors and the sun is less intense. However, it can be performed safely at any time of year, providing you take appropriate precautions including protective clothing, staying in the shade, and wearing high-SPF sunscreen as recommended by your doctor.
Benefits of Fraxel Co2Because this laser targets deep skin layers, it is a powerful weapon against stubborn signs of aging and many other concerns. The many benefits of Fraxel Co2 include:
- Stimulate new collagen production
- Reduce sun damage and the signs of aging
- Improve skin tone, texture, and laxity
- Smooth fine lines and superficial wrinkles
- In some cases, it may be used for removing precancerous lesions
- Minimal downtime and fast results
