Common fractional lasers are included 10600nm fractional co2 laser, 2940nm Er laser, and 1550nm laser. The fractional CO2 laser has been known to provide some of the most dramatic results in treating skin imperfections and has become the gold standard in skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing.
According to recent studies presented at the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery at the University of California Irvine, the CO2 laser produces 30% more collagen than the Erbium Laser, resulting in an absolute better result. The term “fractional” refers to the fact that only a fraction of the skin is treated by producing columns of heat and leaving the surrounding dermal tissue intact. This result is a safer treatment, and less downtime than the old non-fractional CO2 techniques used 15 yrs ago.
All fractional CO2 lasers have the same wavelength of laser light, 10600nm. This wavelength provides the ultimate in deep heating to stimulate collagen production and stimulate new skin cell growth. The difference in the fractional CO2 laser lies in the software that allows the fine tuning of the laser light.
Fractional CO2 lasers achieved excellent improvement on skin rejuvenation by dermatologists constantly. Patients showed high satisfaction scores for the treatments.
Except for skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing, the fractional co2 laser also the treatment for Acne. Scars, Stretch marks, and pigment…
