CO2 Laser Resurfacing Fraxel Treatment in NYC

Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment

CO2 Laser treatment for skin resurfacing and rejuvenating

As part of our menu of laser treatment, Infinity Laser Spa offers a Fraxel laser treatment, also known as CO2 Fraxel laser or CO2 Laser Resurfacing. This particular CO2 treatment is fractional, thus not fully-ablative. Indeed, this skincare solution will treat a broad range of skin conditions. On the other hand, a CO2 laser that is ablative will target and minimize pigmentation.

Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment uses state-of-the-art laser technology that penetrates the deep layers of the skin, retexturizing and resurfacing it. Our CO2 laser treatment is ideal for patients struggling with acne scars, hyperpigmentation, dark sports, dark circle, signs of aging, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, lack of elasticity, enlarged pores, stretch marks and other skin conditions. 

CO2 Fraxel treatments are FDA-approved and must be performed by a licensed technician. The laser treatment is adjusted to meet the needs of the individuals. The deeper the treatment, the more results can be achieved. However, this will make recovery time longer. Patients will see immediate results after one session, but the restoration of the skin will carry on for a few months even after the treatment.

We advise patients interested in a C2O Fraxel treatment tok a free consultation prior to going for their first session. The technician will be better able to assess what intensity of treatment the patient should get as well as check whether there are any contraindications (i.e. certain medications).

Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment FAQ

CO2 Fraxel laser treatment
How does a fractional CO2 laser treatment work?

A pulsing beam of precisely-targeted infrared light emitted by the system acts to break down into thousands of tiny bits of light, for deep penetration into the facial tissue layers. The pulsing beam takes only a millisecond, stimulating your skin to expel damaged skin cells, and generating new cells. 

Through the system’s carefully targeted fractional light, only a precisely targeted area of the skin is treated. The laser leaves surrounding healthy skin and tissue intact for rapid healing and fast recovery.

Is CO2 Fraxel Laser for everyone?

Fractional carbon dioxide lasers have one of the longest wavelengths of all lasers. Thus, it can be used safely on a wide range of skin types, including darker skin. The system can be finely-adjusted to a variety of settings, based upon the skin type and needs of the individual client.

What skin conditions does Fraxel laser treat?

Fractional CO2 lasers treats skin conditions including: deep wrinkles, fine lines around the upper and lower lips, precancerous growth, drooping skin around the eyes, acne scars, rough or uneven skin texture, fine lines and loose skin around the eyes, sun damage, blotchiness, line or creased brow, surgical scars.

How many sessions does a patient need?

Fractional CO2 Laser is done on a per case to case basis. Each individual is different with unique skin and skincare challenges. Some skin conditions will require more sessions than others. Therefore we advise to schedule a free consultation. Make sure you speak of all the skin needs to your esthetician including your medical history and sensitivity. 

How long is the downtime after the treatment?

The downtime will vary from one person to another and how deep the treatment was. It usually takes up to two weeks for the skin to fully heal after one session. Aftercare includes staying away from the sun and applying moisturizers. Usually patients notice redness and skin peeling right after the treatment, however usually skin calms down within 4-5 days.
