Understanding Fractional CO2 Laser Technology

The CO2 laser technology employed in the FX Laser treatment is recognized as the gold standard in skin resurfacing. What sets it apart is its fractionated nature, where microscopic areas of the skin are precisely targeted. This approach leaves healthy skin surrounding each treated area, facilitating rapid healing with new collagen production. The result is an improvement in wrinkles, surface irregularities, blemishes, and pigment abnormalities.

Variants of CO2 FX Laser Treatment

Although laser treatments are non-invasive, for best results a patient must carefully follow aftercare instructions. We want your skin to look its best!
