There is no better way to improve fine rhytides of the skin than with a fractional carbon dioxide laser. CO2 lasers work by burning a micro-hole in the skin with heat, which tightens the skin immediately by heating collagen and later through a wound healing response of the damaged skin. The SmartSkin Fractional CO2 laser by Cynosure is the centerpiece of Las Vegas Dermatology’s 7 years younger package, which includes a comprehensive anti-aging regimen with botulinum toxins and fillers. Unlike other laser treatments, intense pulsed light therapies, chemical peels or blue light treatments, Fractional CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) laser therapy can improve and change the appearance of facial wrinkles, liver spots and loose skin- providing a dramatic improvement in the aging face without the need for plastic surgery, a face lift or general anesthesia. It is also possible to use the texture and wrinkle improving abilities of Fractional CO2 laser in conjunction with a face lift for plastic surgery purposes or as a stand alone anti-aging face treatment.
Besides their use in wrinkle reduction, fractional CO2 lasers are also employed in scar treatments, acne scar therapy, and as a last resort treatment for persistent or difficult to remove tattoos. Typically tattoo removal is performed with a Q Switched Nd:Yag laser, like Las Vegas Dermatology’s Cynosure/Hoya Con Bio Revlite SI laser.
Having a customized anti-aging skin care regimen will enhance the effectiveness of your Fractional CO2 laser wrinkle reduction therapy. No one treatment can do everything; your wrinkles may require multiple treatments with this laser along with accompanying botulinum toxin, filler, peel and topical therapies. The Fractional CO2 laser provides wrinkle reduction and sun damage improvement. Because your face may still lack facial volume and have persistent wrinkles in motion, you may want to treat volume loss with a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvederm® or Restylane® and wrinkles in motion with a botulinum toxin like Botox®, Dysport® or Xeomin®.
