Carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers have been around for several years, but ultra-modern fractional CO2 laser technology has made them better than ever. Several innovations have made co2 lasers more efficient when it comes to skin resurfacing, and alleviating problems such as sun damage, acne scars, and wrinkles. In particular, the Pixel CO2 fractionated laser solution by Alma Lasers is tops in its class.
CO2 lasers then …
Since the 1990’s, CO2 lasers have been widely used for skin resurfacing. There has never been any doubt about their effectiveness, but there were some unwelcome side effects associated with earlier models. Specifically, the ablative nature of the lasers meant that healing took a very long time. As a result, there was increased risk of complications such as infection and scarring.
CO2 lasers now …
Fractional co2 laser technology represents the future of cosmetic lasers. The technology is safe, secure, and produces consistent results. Traditional CO2 lasers vaporized the entire surface of the skin, but fractionated lasers only remove a portion of the skin, while leaving surrounding tissue intact. This has helped to significantly reduce downtime. Healing occurs faster, because the untreated skin tissue helps to heal the treated area.
The Pixel CO2 fractionated laser by Alma Laser represents cutting-edge fractional CO2 laser technology. It is used to treat skin issues such as fine lines and wrinkles, rhytids, acne scars, and photo damage.The lasercan treat skin on the face and neck, as well as on the hands, arms, and chest. It is safe enough for use on all skin types, and the iPixel technology is fast and precise.
iPixel technology involves the release of a beam of light which is divided into multiple beams as it passes through micro optics. As it passes through the optics, it is divided into 7×7 or 9×9 pixel patterns, which then penetrates the surface of the skin. This creates thermal zones through which the skin experiences renewal. The iPixel technology also stimulates collagen, and this helps to tighten and tone the skin.
Fractional co2 laser technology is among the most advanced non-surgical skin rejuvenation options available. As a result, the Pixel Co2 laser is gentle enough to be used on delicate areas of the skin, including around the eyes and mouth. Pixel CO2 can help to reverse the signs of aging, because after treatment skin looks fresher and smoother than before. There is also a dramatic improvement in skin tone and texture.
