Fractional CO2 laser treatment is a revolutionary step in skin restoration, offering a less invasive method with quick recovery time while addressing various skin issues. What makes this innovative therapy so successful?

The fractional CO2 laser uses advanced medical technology to assist your body’s natural skin renewal system by stimulating collagen and elastin production. From sagging skin to wrinkles to acne scarring, this state-of-the-art treatment offers solutions.

Dr. Gerard Acloque at Florida Concierge Medicine & Wellness in Hollywood, Florida, specializes in highly skilled primary care and preventive medicine designed to meet your needs. His patient-first commitment includes nonsurgical, medical aesthetic services like fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatments.

Learn how laser treatments with the Secret™ Pro Fractional CO2 system can give you the smooth, flawless skin you’re craving.

How the fractional CO2 laser works

Laser skin revitalization effectively solves skin irregularities such as dark spots, acne scars, and wrinkles.

Traditional lasers remove the entire surface layer of a treatment area. Fractional lasers create microscopic channels in the underlying skin layers, targeting irregularities but leaving the surrounding areas untouched. 

This action safely heats the middle skin layer (dermis), stimulating the body’s natural healing process and boosting collagen and elastin production. These vital proteins are responsible for skin elasticity and firmness.

While fractional CO2 laser treatments are highly effective, healing and recovery time is significantly less compared to other types of laser resurfacing therapies.

The Secret™ Pro Fractional CO2 system we use at Florida Concierge Medicine & Wellness is an advanced platform that provides significant treatment flexibility, successfully solving a wide range of skin issues. 

What can you treat with fractional CO2 laser therapy?

The fractional CO2 laser offers excellent results for a variety of common skin complaints, including:

  • Mild to moderate scars (including acne scars)
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Dark spots (age spots, liver spots, or sunspots)
  • Mild to moderate lines and wrinkles
  • Areas of hyperpigmentation or uneven skin discoloration
  • Dull complexion
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Loose or sagging skin

Benefits of CO2 laser skin resurfacing include decreased discomfort and downtime following treatments. Additionally, Dr. Acloque can adjust treatment patterns and depths with the Secret™ Pro Fractional system to meet your needs.

What happens during and after fractional CO2 laser treatment?

Treatment and recovery can vary from one person to another due to the condition under focus and other factors. Before scheduling your procedure, Dr. Acloque discusses treatment details and your expected recovery course.

Generally, topical anesthetic prevents discomfort during this in-office treatment that lasts from 30-60 minutes. You may experience post-treatment redness and mild swelling, much like a sunburn, that typically fades in one to two days.

You may also notice dryness and peeling in the treatment area as new tissue replaces the old. Dr. Acloquie provides detailed aftercare instructions, including a skin care regimen tailored to fit your needs during the healing process.
