We now offer a new CO2 laser with “fractionated” technology. The Matrix laser by Sandstone is used to treat fine wrinkles, irregular skin surfaces, hyper -pigmented skin (sun damage) and reduce acne scarring. The results also improve the tone, texture and color of the skin surface.
Over time your skin’s youthful appearance is renewed.
Traditional CO2 lasers create thermal (heat) injury to the entire surface of an area of the skin and healing can be prolonged.
However, “Fractional” laser resurfacing technology produces very fine laser beams of heat directly to the specific area on the skin, leaving much of the surrounding skin surface unmarred. This also allows the healthy skin to produce new collagen and other skin elements, and healing is much quicker. Depending on how much energy is applied, plus the reaction of the skin of each individual, we find, in most cases the healing time to be from 6-7 days….sometimes even less.
To receive optimal results may require more than one treatment.
Using a topical anesthetic cream, and our cold-air chiller, most patients find minimal discomfort. Like all procedures, realistic expectations of improvement are important.
Dr. Chatham performs this procedure personally as well as all laser procedures and other medical and surgical procedures.
If you are noticing fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth but have been leery of aggressive laser procedures, we encourage you to contact our office to see if this new fractional skin resurfacing is right for you.
