A Fractional Carbon Dioxide Laser is similar to an Erbium Laser in that they both vaporize water to remove layers of problem skin and stimulate collagen growth. A fractional CO2 laser, however, is a much better skin tightening laser and therefore is used for the treatment of deeper skin problems.
A fractional CO2 laser heats water, and our skin cells are made primarily of water. When directed at the problem skin area, the laser gently removes skin cells, exposing fresh layers of lower lying skin. The heat from the laser also helps to stimulate the growth of new collagen, aiding in the development of younger, smoother skin. No matter how aged the outer layers of skin may appear, Fractional CO2 treatments in Kelowna will always help improve aging and/or sun damaged skin.
The cost for DermaPeel will depend on several factors. The number of sessions will influence the final price, as will the severity of the cosmetic issues being addressed.
1-7 days – Due to the intensity of the treatment, fractional CO2 laser patients often experience redness, and slight swelling following the procedure. Patients are encouraged to moisturize the skin, apply sunscreen, avoid sun exposure, and maintain a regular cleansing schedule during recovery.
Smoother, tighter, firmer, and younger looking skin are the common results of fractional CO2 laser treatments. If a fractional CO2 laser is used to treat acne, brown spots, melasma, or wrinkles, patients can expect the gradual removal of these conditions after a series of treatments.
At DermMedica, the average fractional laser treatment in Kelowna is 20 to 30 minutes. The rest of the appointment time is spent waiting for the numbing cream to properly freeze the treatment area. After exposure to the laser, the treated skin is soothed with a moisturizing ointment before the patient is able to leave the office and proceed home. To the left is a video of a patient followed daily for one week during and immediately after a facial fractional CO2 laser treatment.
