20 Jan 2015 CO2 Facial Laser Rejuvenation – Remove Wrinkles without the Knife!
Fractional CO2 lasers have been shown to stimulate collagen formation, which results in improved elasticity of the skin. For years it has been a mainstay in treating a variety of signs associated with facial aging such as: fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne scars, brown spots and poor skin texture.
In the past decade the rates of CO2 laser facial rejuvenation has increased with patients wanting to erase facial wrinkles without going under the knife. Older technologies used by surgeons in the past were problematic with long downtimes and post-procedure pigment changes.
In a recent study, Dr. Neaman of Neaman Plastic Surgery, along with his colleagues, studied the effects of a newer fractional CO2 laser technology and the results were outstanding. A link to the PDF copy of the study and some of the amazing before and after pictures can be found here.
The study confirms that the newer fractional CO2 laser has reduced recovery time and decreased post-procedural pigmentation changes. This proves that the new technology provides significant clinical improvement with high patient satisfaction.
Dr. Neaman states that “One advantage of fractioned CO2 lasers is the ability to treat patients under local anesthesia, which is generally well tolerated…” he goes on to say “We offer both local anesthesia and conscious sedation to all patients and encourage sedatives for those patients who express anxiety with regards to the procedure.”
