Fractional CO2 Resurfacing

“This improvement in resurfacing gives the most dramatic improvement in photoaging and acne scarring in just one treatment.”
- Dr. Lupo
In 2008, Dr. Lupo updated her CO2 laser technology with the Active/Deep FX fractional CO2 laser from Lumenis. This laser dramatically improves lines, wrinkles, and discoloration with one treatment and has 7 days of downtime. It can be used on the neck and chest as well as the face.

Resurfacing is for patients wanting dramatic changes with fewer treatments and can afford to miss work for up to one week.

Ablative skin resurfacing refers to the actual removal of this surface damaged skin. We usually do resurfacing for severe acne scars and for severe photo-ageing.

Ablative skin resurfacing refers to the actual removal of this surface damaged skin. We usually do resurfacing for severe acne scars and for severe photo-ageing. I have been performing ablative skin resurfacing since 1983, when I was performing derma-abrasion. In 1995, I began doing C02 resurfacing with a laser. The problem with full C02 resurfacing however was the downtime and the prolonged redness that patients experienced, after the treatment. So now we have Fractional C02 resurfacing. It is a sweet spot in that, it is aggressive but the skin heals better and faster, resulting in less redness and less prolonged healing times. I use something called active and deep effects – fractional resurfacing. A machine from Lumenis. Lumenis was the pioneer in the original C02 resurfacing technology, so with C02 resurfacing which I personally perform on patients, we can remove damage skin sun damaged skin, acne damaged skin to give a more improved surface texture and a more luminesce glow and even colour to dammed skin!
