The Magic of CO2 Fractional Resurfacing for Pigment Correction and Skin Resurfacing
ReviVa CO2 Fractional Resurfacing is a revolutionary technology that has become increasingly popular for both pigment correction and skin resurfacing. It uses a CO2 laser to target and treat areas of the skin that require correction or resurfacing. This revolutionary laser therapy has been proven to be safe and effective for reducing wrinkles, lines, pigmentation, and other signs of aging. Not only is it an effective treatment option, but it is also relatively painless with minimal downtime. In this blog post, we will explore the magic of CO2 Fractional Resurfacing and how it can help you achieve beautiful, glowing skin.
What is CO2 fractional resurfacing?
CO2 fractional resurfacing is an ablative treatment that uses a specialized laser, the ReviVa CO2 laser, to correct pigmentation issues and reduce signs of aging. This treatment helps to improve skin texture, tone, and clarity, as well as diminish the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging. It works by delivering tiny, concentrated beams of light energy to the treatment area, which causes microscopic wounds to the skin. The wounds then stimulate the body’s natural healing process and collagen production, resulting in smoother, tighter skin with improved texture and tone. Fractional resurfacing also allows for targeted treatment of specific areas without affecting the surrounding skin. This makes it an ideal treatment for pigmentation issues such as age spots and melasma, as well as acne scarring and sun damage.
How does it work?
CO2 fractional resurfacing is a type of laser treatment used to help improve the look and feel of your skin. It works by using a ReviVa CO2 laser, which uses beams of light to remove thin layers of damaged skin. The laser works by targeting specific areas of skin, such as those with sun spots, wrinkles, or acne scars. The laser light causes microscopic injuries to the skin, which then stimulates the body’s natural healing process. This triggers collagen production and cell regeneration, resulting in a more even skin tone and smoother texture. Additionally, the fractional technology used in this treatment helps reduce the risk of side effects and downtime associated with traditional CO2 laser treatments.
What are the benefits?
CO2 laser resurfacing is a powerful treatment for improving the appearance of the skin. It can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, even out pigmentation, reduce pore size, treat scars, and generally give the skin a more refreshed look. Additionally, CO2 laser resurfacing can help remove sun damage and age spots, while stimulating the production of collagen. This means that the treated area will look smoother and more youthful in appearance. Additionally, since CO2 laser resurfacing works at a deep level, it can help to restore the skin’s natural elasticity and firmness, resulting in a more toned and defined appearance. CO2 laser resurfacing can also improve circulation to the skin which can result in a more glowing complexion. Finally, this treatment can be used to treat many different skin types, making it suitable for most patients.
How long does it take to see results?
When it comes to the results of CO2 fractional resurfacing, you may start to notice some improvements in skin tone and texture within a few days of treatment. However, it typically takes several weeks to several months to see the full effects of the treatment. This is because the ReviVa CO2 laser stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, which are essential for healthy skin. The new collagen and elastin can take some time to form and, as such, the results of CO2 fractional resurfacing can become increasingly noticeable over the course of several weeks or months. Depending on your individual needs and goals, you may need more than one session of CO2 fractional resurfacing to get the best results.
Is there any downtime?
Yes, there is some downtime associated with CO2 fractional resurfacing. Immediately after the procedure, you may experience redness, swelling, and/or minor bleeding. This usually lasts anywhere from 1-7 days and can be managed with cold compresses or moisturizers. You should also avoid direct sun exposure and use a sunscreen to protect your skin while it is healing. Additionally, the ReviVa CO2 laser vaporizes skin cells, so you may experience some flaking or crusting during the healing process as well. It is important to follow your doctor’s instructions in order to achieve optimal results.
Are there any side effects?
CO2 fractional resurfacing is a safe and non-invasive procedure that has very few side effects. The most common ones are redness, swelling, and temporary discomfort which should resolve within a few days. In rare cases, it can cause discoloration of the skin or scarring, though this is less likely to occur with modern CO2 lasers. It is important to discuss your medical history and any skin concerns you have with your doctor before undergoing CO2 fractional resurfacing to ensure that there are no contraindications.
How much does it cost?
The cost of a ReviVa CO2 laser resurfacing treatment will vary depending on the type of procedure, area to be treated, and provider. Generally speaking, the cost of a CO2 fractional resurfacing treatment can range anywhere from $1000 to $4000. The total cost can also depend on the complexity of the treatment, as well as the number of sessions required to achieve desired results. A typical single session may cost anywhere between $500 and $2000.
