Fraxel® CO2 Laser repair uses a high-intensity carbon dioxide (CO2) laser for the treatment of many skin conditions. It smooths out skin tone and texture, tightens wrinkled, saggy skin, softens deep frown lines and wrinkles and improves age spots, sunspots and sun-induced redness and damage.
Through fractional technology, thousands of microscopic laser columns penetrate deep into the skin to remove old and damaged skin cells and stimulate your body’s healing process to replace old cells with fresh, glowing and healthy new skin. Unlike traditional CO2 lasers, our Fraxel® laser targets a fraction of skin at one time, leaving surrounding tissue intact and allowing your body to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once.
All skin areas can be treated, but the most popular areas are the face, neck, chest and legs. Most people seeing significant results in just one treatment. Healing time will be between a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the treatment received. Following treatment, your skin may have a pink or red color, but this will disappear over time. You will need to avoid direct sun exposure or use a sun block of at least SPF 30 when outdoors.
