JACOB SEDGH, MD
FRAXIS DUO FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER PROCEDURE
The fractional CO2 laser emits fractionated beams of light that create controlled thermal damage that will be healed by the surrounding tissues naturally, while the micro-needles promote more significant improvement by delivering precisely controlled RF energy at different depths of the dermis and encouraging collagen remodeling within the skin.
The surgeon will first apply a topical anesthetic on your entire face or specific target areas and wait until it is sufficiently numb. Alternatively, a sedative may also be used, depending on your anesthetic needs and the extent of the treatment.
The doctor or aesthetician will then begin by making several passes on sections of your face or specific target areas with both the fractional laser and micro-needle handpieces. Heat and tingling sensations can be expected as the laser moves across the skin.
Depending on the size of the target areas, the procedure may take anywhere between 15 to 45 minutes. For a full face treatment, the treatment can last up to two hours.
The skin will take about 3 to 14 days to shed dead skin and heal completely. However, for around 4 to 6 weeks after the treatment, the treated areas will remain pinkish and slightly blotchy. While your skin will already start to show noticeable improvements after the initial recovery, the final results will only be revealed in about 3 to 6 months.
Dr. Sedgh will make it a point to monitor your progress throughout your entire recovery and follow-up treatments, should you decide to avail the full benefits of the FRAXIS DUO Fractional CO2 Laser and Micro-Needle RF treatment. This helps him ensure that you are healing well and that there are no ill effects.
