CO2 Laser is a fractional treatment approach designed to address extensive categories of skin issues. The fractionated system is different from the familiar ablative lasers, which are commonly utilized to reduce signs of aging and imperfections of the skin.

Ablative lasers remove external skin layers to expose a smooth new surface, that is soft to the touch. Although the results of ablative treatments are extraordinary, the discomfort and required downtime may not be an appealing or practical option. CO2 laser treatments deliver amazing results without the pain and downtime, which for most people, makes it the more practical solution. The CO2 laser generates a sequence of micro-channels into layers of the skin while the laser beam pierces the dermal skin layers. This procedure cues the natural healing abilities of the body, which motivates cell renewal to rejuvenate the skin’s complexion. This course also supports neocollagenesis – the natural production of collagen within the body. The extra collagen offers the support required for the dermal structure to preserve its agile, soft appearance and feel.

Ablative Laser Resurfacing With The CO2 Laser

Ablative laser resurfacing differs from nonablative laser treatments in that the wavelength and energy delivered with these therapies target the water within certain skin cells creating a controlled vaporizing effect. With CO2 laser resurfacing, the adage "what you put into it is what you get out of it" applies, in that the procedure and downtime are comparatively more than nonablative lasers, but the results are more immediate and more dramatic.

CO2 laser resurfacing has also evolved significantly. The technique now employs a fractional photothermolysis model that involves the delivery of laser energy in a grid-like pattern to alternating tiny spots within the grid, thermally exciting these regions within the skin and leaving the intervening neighboring areas untouched; the result is a uniform, effective laser treatment with much more rapid healing and recovery.

Ablative CO2 laser treatments can be used for more coarse lines and wrinkles of the face, crepey skin of the eyelid area, the vertical lines of the upper and lower lips, melisma and pigment spots of the face, sun damage and discoloration of the neck and chest, and photoaging and discoloration of the hands and forearms. Dr. Kolker uses the Lumenis UltraPulse CO2 laser, with fractional photothermolysis technology including Active FX, Deep FX, and Total FX.

A CO2 laser resurfacing treatment plan will be tailored specifically to your individual skin type, your areas of concern, and your goals. As CO2 laser resurfacing treats more deeply, the anesthetic requirements are greater. In Dr. Kolker's AAAASF fully accredited facility in NYC, laser treatments with ablative fractional CO2 laser are performed with light sedation to maximize comfort.

Patient results will vary, some may experience noticeable results after one week, the improvement increases over time, even within the months after treatment.

During this time, neocollagenesis is occurring, and collagen levels are slowly increasing, causing your skin to appear more radiant and youthful. You can expect natural results that last. Some patients opt to receive deep laser penetration, which requires longer recovery time. However, the results are usually more impactful and last for several years. If you select a less invasive approach, you have the option to repeat the treatment within a few months to improve and prolong results. Dr. Kolker will offer detailed explanations of your options and how they will help you to achieve your aesthetic goals.
