What is ECO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
ECO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing is a microfractional laser skin resurfacing system that dramatically improves deep wrinkles, laxity, and sun-damaged skin using an advanced state-of-the-art process that delivers thousands of laser pulses to the skin.
ECO2 has become popular due to the fact that it offers less pain and quicker recovery time than with traditional CO2 laser systems. Additionally, the ECO2 system has been proven to have superior results and is administered in just one treatment. It is recommended for:
- Deep wrinkles on the forehead, face, areas around the eyes, and lips
- Acne, surgical, and/or burn scars
- Photo-damaged skin
- Uneven skin
- Large pores
- Pigmented lesions, freckles, or seborrheic keratoses
- Total resurfacing of the face, neck, hands, and/or chest
A full-face treatment takes about 60 minutes after a topical anesthetic is applied. A special dressing that decreases swelling, pain and irregularities is applied for 2 to 3 days. After the treatment you will feel a warm sensation, similar to a deep sunburn. Some swelling and redness may be seen immediately following treatment, but this will subside. The treated area will also appear with a thin crust as the rejuvenation process continues and the old sun damaged, dead skin cells slough off.
Most patients will notice significant improvement after just 1 treatment, but some patients may choose to undergo a second treatment after 3 months for more dramatic results.
