New Orleans area dermatologist describes fractional CO2 treatment for facial rejuvenationBy Dr. Mary Lupo
Dr. Mary Lupo uses the Active/Deep FX Fractional CO2 laser by Lumenis to improve the texture and tone of the skin dramatically. This treatment can rejuvenate by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, addressing discoloration of the face and neck, and can help in improving texture and tone. Many patients choose Fractional CO2 Laser treatment to address imperfections in the skin and enjoy less downtime than other options such as surgery. The social downtime encouraged for treatments such as this is approximately seven days. This is because the skin begins to restore itself and can result in redness, peeling, and flaking that cannot be covered with cosmetics.
Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is completely safe. The Lumenis device used for this treatment is cleared by the FDA for skin rejuvenation and is used by a trained, board certified dermatologist at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology. Dr. Mary Lupo performs the procedure herself so patients can rest easy knowing they are under the care and attention of a trained medical professional. Treatment sessions are relatively short, patients are given instructions for after-care, and they can book a follow-up appointment for approximately one week after their initial treatment to monitor the results.
Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is a wonderful method of repairing years of abuse on the skin including sun damage and poor skin care. If you live in New Orleans or surrounding areas and you have considered aggressive ways of improving the skin, fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatments may be appropriate for you.
