The Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is the latest laser innovation for micro-ablative skin rejuvenation. Considered one of the top anti-aging breakthroughs of the decade, this type of laser has scientifically solid and significant advantages in our quest for the fountain of youth! At our Toronto Laser clinic, the Fractional C02 is our most intense laser. It yields premium results, which allow our clients to non-surgically restore and rejuvenate their skin. Using advanced laser technology, a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser for skin resurfacing precisely removes outer layers of damaged skin to reveal the underlying skin, which is softer, smoother, and younger-looking. Fractional C02 laser will target fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, dark spots, acne scars, and skin texture with superior skin resurfacing and skin-tightening results.
Think of your skin as a digital photograph in need of high-quality restoration or a touch-up just as a damaged painting is delicately restored one small area at a time or a photographic image is altered, pixel by pixel. Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing improves your appearance by affecting only a fraction of your skin with thousands of tiny microscopic laser heat channels. Since only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, the areas of untreated skin form small “bridges” to rapidly speed up healing. This technique makes the healing process much faster than traditional CO2 and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner, delivering powerful results without the traditionally harsh side effects!
The main benefit with the new and improved fractional resurfacing is that it has less potential for side effects. Traditional CO2 carried a lot of risks that, for some, outweighed the incredible results. Some of these side effects included scarring or hypopigmentation. Today, Fractional C02 does not carry the same risks or side effects, complications are very rare, and these laser treatments have an excellent safety record. The most important consideration for patients nowadays is to choose a reputable laser clinic with a knowledgeable and experienced team to ensure the best results.
The first step in learning if C02 Laser is right for you is to book a free consultation with Dr. Torgerson. You will be able to discuss areas of concern, and Dr. Torgerson will provide treatment options. You can also browse through before and after photos of patients who have had similar laser resurfacing treatments done. Fractional Laser CO2 Skin Resurfacing is an exclusively customized treatment solution that does require 5 to 7 days of downtime and is the most expensive laser treatment available. However, clients who have had CO2 tell us that it is highly worth it, especially considering the results and that it can be done non-surgically. During the procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light is used to smooth out lines, wrinkles, and scars and remove brown spots and other irregularities. It also stimulates formation of new underlying collagen to continue improvement over time for a skin-tightening effect. Our laser clinic has its own hospital-grade approved and inspected surgical facility. Therefore, Dr. Torgerson is able to offer conscious sedation as an option for our patients. Because of this, the treatment is quick, painless, and has you up and on your way to beautiful skin in the easiest way possible!
Following the laser resurfacing, patients are given Dr. Torgerson’s direct contact information so that they can contact him at any time throughout their recovery process if they have any questions. Dr. Torgerson’s Toronto office will also provide patients with a CO2 laser package that gives detailed pre-treatment instructions and post-laser recovery guidance as well. We have found patient satisfaction to be top-rated following a CO2 laser treatment, as it truly is the best way to address and correct a multitude of skin and aging concerns.
