CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

The fractional CO2 laser is the latest technology to help improve the appearance of wrinkles. Dr. Vigliante uses fractional CO2 laser resurfacing which dramatically shortens recovery time and lessened the occurrence of complications. With fractional CO2 laser resurfacing the laser beam is broken up or fractionated into many small micro beams which are separated so that when they strike the skin surface small areas of the skin between the beams are not hit by the laser and left intact. These small areas of untreated skin promote a much more rapid recovery and healing with less risk of complications. The small areas treated by the fractional micro beams, called micro treatment zones promote new collagen production and resultant facial skin rejuvenation.
