Laser skin resurfacing is a popular non-surgical treatment used to smoothen the skin’s surface and remove most of your skin’s textural irregularities, such as wrinkles, blemishes, acne scars, pigmentation problems, etc. Fractional C02 laser skin resurfacing takes those benefits further with better results, lesser time, and no downtime.

At Priva Medspa of Fairfield, we stay abreast of the latest developments in cosmetic technologies to provide the most outstanding treatments to our patients. We use a cutting-edge device called the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser to provide the most comfortable fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment.

What is fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-surgical procedure wherein concentrated laser energy is used to remove the uppermost layers of the skin. Removing the damaged, old, and worn upper layers of the skin reveals the smoother, younger, and brighter skin underneath, making you look significantly younger. The laser energy also seeps deep within the skin tissues to activate collagen production and skin cell regeneration, giving you smoother, tighter, and firmer skin.

Fractional CO2 is the most effective modality of laser skin resurfacing, and it has been used for years to treat wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, excess oil production, etc. The fractional CO2 procedure uses short pulses of light energy in a continuous stream to remove the damaged layers of the skin without causing severe damage. The procedure uses minimal heat energy, which, in turn, causes minimal side effects and ensures faster recovery.

Which device do you use for fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing?

Priva Medspa of Fairfield is a state-of-the-art medical spa outfitted with the latest technologies for skin treatments. We use the SmartXide Tetra CO2 device for fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing. It’s currently the most effective, efficient, and safe device for laser skin resurfacing because the doctor can easily control the power, density, and pulse durations of the treatment. As such, it can be customized to address your unique skin concerns with more specificity than other technologies.

The SmartXide Tetra CO2 device is also known as a CoolPeel laser because it uses high-peak-power short pulse to deliver the treatment without any thermal damage. As such, it improves the overall appearance of your skin, smoothens the skin surface, reduces pore size, and reduces wrinkles without damaging any of the surrounding skin tissues. As such, the SmartXide Tetra CO2 device is one of the best technologies for fine lines, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and other skin concerns.

Am I a suitable candidate for fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing?

Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a suitable treatment for anyone with fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, acne scars, or other textural irregularities. The treatment removes the uppermost damaged layers of the skin and strengthens the underlying skin tissues, making you look significantly younger.

What happens during fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment?

Your laser skin resurfacing treatment will start with an initial consultation wherein the doctor will examine your skin type, discuss your goals, and review your medical history. The SmartXide Tetra CO2 device is highly customizable, so the doctor will personalize it to address your unique skin concerns. During the procedure, the laser device will move over your skin to deliver the pulses of light energy into the treatment areas. You’ll receive topical or local anesthesia before the treatment, so you won’t feel any pain or discomfort.

What is the recovery from laser skin resurfacing like?

You’ll experience swelling, redness, and irritation on the treatment areas for a few days, but they’ll be mild and manageable. You’ll have to follow the doctor’s post-treatment guidelines accurately, including avoiding strenuous exercises for a few days. Your skin will gradually start flaking off to reveal smoother and brighter skin underneath.
