The DOT CO2 Fractional: The Next Step in Laser Skin Resurfacing
Date:3/1/2008

NORTH DALLAS and PLANO, Texas, March 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Skin damage. If you are over 40, your skin may be telling some tales about you -- about your time as a smoker (lip lines), those long, lazy sun-worshipping summers (dry, rough skin, wrinkles, freckles and age spots), or perhaps you're seeing a little more of Mom and Pop in the mirror each day than you'd care to. Yes, part of what you're seeing is normal skin aging, but most of it is likely to be sun and other environmental damage. It's ugly -- and it's not just on the surface, either.

Good news: Two revolutionary medical technologies with diverse approaches to skin resurfacing are merging their strengths: fractional laser technology and the CO2 laser. The two heavy-hitter beauty treatments are now being combined to provide a resurfacing and rejuvenating treatment that goes deeper into the skin than current conventional fractional laser treatments, while offering a safer treatment with considerably less social downtime and recovery than the traditional CO2 (carbon dioxide) ablation laser.

For the patient with deeper wrinkling and skin damage, the aesthetic physician's gold-standard, until recently, has been the CO2 laser, because of its ability to vaporize the outermost layers of skin across a large surface area. After some recovery, the newly-generated skin is remarkably smoother and suppler. The other side of the CO2 coin is that that reward generally comes after 10 to 14 days or so of hiding away as a social pariah, the first few days of which one will likely benefit from a potent pain medication. The skin tends to retain a pinkish/reddish hue for months afterward (the longer the redness, the better the final result), and there is, naturally, with any larger, weeping and crusting open wound surface, risk of infection if an aftercare regimen is not carefully followed. Additionally, a small percentage of patients may experience permanent, delayed-onset skin whitening or excess skin pigmentat
