Fractional Laser Resurfacing Pheonix laser system
Fractional resurfacing can be used to rejuvenate the skin anywhere on the body. The device facilitates skin rejuvenation with less bleeding, bruising, swelling and discomfort and a shorter recuperation period than other ablative CO2 lasers. In addition, the revolutionary micro-thermal zone scanner stimulates collagen production while reducing healing time after treatment. This fractional laser resurfacing treatment was designed to treat a fraction of the skin, allowing deeper treatment and significant skin transformation without the downtime of other ablative lasers.
The Phoenix CO2 Laser System treats all forms of surface irregularity, including wrinkles, fine lines, scars, uneven pigmentation, age spots, liver spots, sun spots, brown spots, skin tags, coarse skin, dull and dehydrated skin, acne and traumatic scars. In addition, the laser stimulates epidermal remodeling and skin transformation.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Fractional Laser Resurfacing FAQ's
This depends on the depth of the treatment and the individual. Post-treatment, patients may experience some redness and swelling, and the treated areas may look similar to mild sunburn. About seven days later, a new layer of skin will develop, and makeup can be applied to conceal any remaining redness. Along with some flaking, peeling or scabbing, some patients may experience a mild breakout as new skin forms, but this should subside within two weeks.
Fractional CO2 laser treatments are safe and effective, but patients and clinicians need to adhere to standard protocols to avoid complications. Possible side effects and risks include redness, bruises, irritation, infection, scarring, hyper and/or hypopigmentation. At Arria Medspa, we take these potential risks very seriously and do everything we can to mitigate them by ensuring our patients are adequately educated regarding before/after care and being meticulous with our settings during the treatment.
1. This depends on the patient and the condition being treated, as well as the amount of downtime the patient is willing to endure. While we can treat more aggressively to achieve results more quickly, this may add a few days of healing time. Certain conditions are more likely to require two or more treatments, such as acne scarring and wrinkles from sun damage, while other areas, such as the under eyes, can sometimes require only one treatment. At your consultation, your provider will be able to gauge approximately how many treatment sessions you may need.
