From fun in the sun to past acne breakouts, injuries, and increasing age, our skin tells the story of our lives. Age spots, wrinkles, scars, and other imperfections may not reflect how you’d like to present yourself to others, but with the eCO2™ fractional laser skin resurfacing system, you can turn back the clock and revitalize your skin from within. Dr. Rahul Shukla and the team of professional physicians at drs skincare in Hamilton, Ontario, are skilled in using this advanced skin rejuvenation treatment to provide patients with younger, healthier, and more glowing skin.
Revitalize your skin with the eCO2 system
The eCO2 laser is one of the most advanced fractional skin resurfacing lasers available today. It uses targeted pulses of light energy to treat problem areas on the skin by heating and removing precise areas of tissue while stimulating the body’s natural healing and regenerative processes. Healthy new skin cells are created, and collagen production is boosted, resulting in tighter, smoother, and more youthful skin. The eCO2 system is gentle enough to use on the face and other parts of the body such as the hands, neck, chest, and legs without damaging healthy skin cells. It is a versatile, non-invasive treatment option that can be used for patients who have issues such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles in specific facial areas (such as around the eyes or mouth)
- Scars from acne, burns, surgery, or accidents
- Sun damage
- Brown spots or other skin pigmentation issues
- Uneven skin tone
- Large pores
- Rough spots on the skin
- Sagging skin
Actual Patient Results
eCO2 fractional laser skin treatment Before and After
How is the eCO2 fractional laser resurfacing system different?
Traditional CO2 lasers are very effective at revitalizing your skin’s overall appearance and tone but are associated with lengthy downtimes and healing periods due to their ablative nature. The eCO2 laser uses ultra-fast pulses that shorten the treatment time for your comfort while also using fractional technology to allow for greater precision and less recovery time. It penetrates deeply into the skin for enhanced collagen production and long-term results that are noticeable after just one treatment session. Additionally, the laser system is equipped with multiple modes and interchangeable tips, which allows us to provide completely personalized treatment for a wide array of skin issues.
What to expect
When you come in for your treatment, we will first prepare the area by thoroughly cleansing it and then applying a topical anesthetic for your comfort during the procedure. If the area around the eyes is to be treated, we will provide you with protective eyewear as well. After configuring the laser based on your specific treatment needs, we will then carefully pass the laser over the treatment area. Overall, the treatment typically takes about an hour. This can vary depending on the area of the face or body being treated. After your treatment is complete, the treated area will be somewhat swollen, but it typically dissipates shortly. Your skin will look like it has been sunburned for a few days after treatment and may drain fluids for about 24 hours after treatment. After the skin has recovered, most patients see a noticeable improvement in tone, texture, and elasticity after just one treatment.
