How the Excelo2 works
At the start of treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin. The laser emits arrays of microscopic thermal channelsthatvaporize the outer layer of the skin,and also penetrates into the underlying dermal layer. At the deeper level the laser stimulates collagen and elastin. This helps to clear the skin, and also makes it smoother and tighter.
A typical treatment session lasts for about 25 minutes. The number of treatments required will depend on the skin issues that need to be corrected. Patients with mild facial aging may only require one treatment, but more serious aging may require upwards of 2 treatments. These sessions are usually placed 6 to 8 weeks apart.
The Excelo2 is not painful, and patients only report experiencing a warm stinging feeling. Comfort is enhanced because the laser is fitted with an efficient cooling system, which also works to protect the skin.
Fractional skin rejuvenation treatment is available from the Skin Care Center in Chicago. It is the ideal choice for patients seeking to improve the look and feel of their skin.
