CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

Pixel CO2, ActiveFX CO2, DeepFX CO2 and Total FX CO2

At the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay, Jeffrey A. Hunt D.O., R.V.S., R.V.P.I. provides the safest, most effective skin care treatments available. He is proud to offer to his Tampa, Florida-area patients the latest advancement in skin resurfacing: CO2 technology. New CO2 skin resurfacing lasers, or carbon dioxide lasers, are revolutionary and fractionated. They are ideal for aged, sun-damaged, crepey or acne-scarred skin. Today’s CO2 lasers like Active FX, Deep FX and Pixel CO2 involve treating only a fraction of the skin’s surface at a time leaving islands of healthy tissue to aid in the regeneration process and rapid recovery.

A high-energy beam of laser light interacts with the skin’s surface causing the upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthy skin. Each laser pulse removes a deep column of tissue while simultaneously treating surrounding skin. This deep ablative heating causes immediate collagen contraction and long-term collagen remodeling. CO2 results in softening and smoothing of wrinkles and scars and improved skin texture with usually a week or less downtime.

*Patients who undergo CO2 laser technology are able to recapture the smoothness, tautness, and healthy radiance of younger, fresher skin. Patients cannot wear make-up or sunblock for 1 week post-treatment and have 3-4 days social downtime due to redness, swelling and peeling. For most patients, a single treatment works great!

This very effective technology can be performed on virtually any area of the skin exhibiting damage or signs of age, including the face, neck, hands, arms, chest, and thighs. *Patients who undergo CO2 laser technology are able to recapture the smoothness, tautness, and healthy radiance of younger, fresher skin.

*The FDA-approved Pixel CO2®, ActiveFX CO2, Deep FX CO2 and Total FX CO2 treatments, (which is a power-packed combination of ActiveFX and Deep FX laser treatments), are exciting new breakthroughs in complete skin rejuvenation. Take years off of your appearance as CO2 laser technology stimulate the production of collagen under the skin to treat wrinkles, lax skin, spotty pigmentation, sun spots, scars and other skin flaws and promote growth of newer, healthy skin layers.

The DeepFX treatment scanner treats scars, dermal lesions and stimulates long-term skin remodeling. DeepFX is a truly ablative fractional treatment where micro spots of skin are not simply treated but rather are removed, resulting in smoother, tighter skin. This treatment is done along with the ActiveFX treatment achieving even more dramatic results for the patient.

Recovery from CO2 Laser Treatment

Following CO2 laser treatment, some patients may experience swelling, redness, and peeling at the treatment areas which will usually subside within a week. Most patients are able to resume daily activities immediately after the treatment. *Optimal results of the CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment start to appear within the first week, but best results will be most apparent after several months.

Advantages of Pixel CO2, ActiveFX CO2, DeepFX CO2 and Total FX CO2

CO2 laser skin resurfacing technology combines the exceptional effectiveness of carbon dioxide lasers with the shorter recovery period of fractional laser treatments. While patients experience a slightly stronger and more intense skin resurfacing treatment with CO2 treatments than with the ResurFX® (Erbium 1565) laser, they also experience less downtime than with non-fractal CO2 laser treatments and with less potential side effects and better results due to new technology.
