Fractional CO2 Laser
Therapy Fractional CO2 laser therapy is a type of resurfacing
procedure that uses carbon dioxide laser treatment to stimulate collagen
growth in order to eliminate superficial cosmetic conditions such as age
spots and wrinkles. The benefits of Fractional CO2 Laser
Skin-resurfacing include longer lasting results, minimal recovery time
and minimal chance of pigmentation loss. This laser therapy is relatively
new to the Hunstad MedSpa and has been ranked as the number one
anti-aging breakthrough technology of the decade by WebMD.

FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER
This is documented as the No.1 most revolutionary
cosmetic technology by WebMD. The fractional CO2 laser has completely
changed the face of facial resurfacing procedures done today. The
fractional CO2 laser is a device that under minimal sedation can be
performed to completely rejuvenate the aging face. This is a minimally
invasive procedure with quick recovery that enables the patients to
completely rejuvenate their face in a quick fashion. Our system offers
wrinkle reduction, scar treatment, pigmentation reduction, redness
reduction, facial rejuvenation, and coagulation of tissue, which results
in tighter skin for appearance of an overall younger looking skin. By
completely resurfacing the entire surface area of the face, the patient
can have all other age spots completely eliminated. In addition, due to
the laserís capacity to stimulate collagen growth, it can accomplish
skin tightening that produces results similar as to a mini facelift.
The result is a complete skin
rejuvenation that provides a better and faster result with less pain. In
addition with the new fractionated technology, the downtime is minimal.
Within five to six days, complete recovery is expected with the
beginning of a more youthful facial appearance.

the antiaging process and eliminate the early signs of aging and the
pigmentary signs of aging.

lasts? A. The
treatment typically lasts between 20-30 minutes.
