A Guide to Advanced, Powerful CO2 Laser Resurfacing Treatment in Juno Beach, Florida

Perfect Skin Dermatology is privileged to offer some of the most powerful, well-tolerated, and safe systems for CO2 laser treatment in Juno Beach, Florida, within an elegant, serene setting. Board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Susan Schroeder, further applies her pioneering expertise in energy-based cosmetic treatments to dramatically transform many signs of skin aging.

CO2 Lasers

Carbon dioxide lasers are among the most time-tested, light-based devices available to improve skin quality. Latest-generation technologies deliver ultra-short pulses of light energy to pinpoint specific skin concerns, leaving surrounding areas untouched. The heat that is generated provides additional benefits to the underlying skin by stimulating the production of firming collagen.

Fractionated CO2 Lasers

Continuous beams of light from selected devices are delivered to treatment areas in scanning patterns. These fractionated or fractional procedures divide the light into thousands of microscopic columns or channels, which are around ten times smaller than hair follicles. A fraction of the skin is treated at any given time. As the skin heals, collagen fills in the fractionated areas for a tighter, rejuvenated appearance.

DeepFX™ and ActiveFX™

Developed by leaders in aesthetic medicine, Lumenis, DeepFX™, and ActiveFX™ represent CO2 fractional laser skin resurfacing devices. When in the hands of skilled and experienced providers like Dr. Schroeder, they dramatically improve the appearance of deep folds and fine lines alike, as well as uneven tone and a leathery texture. While both technologies have received FDA clearance and are clinically validated by dozens of studies, each targets different skin layers. We can discuss your needs further during a consultation to determine the best approach for you.

What to expect

If these energy-based treatments are appropriate for you, a numbing anesthetic may be applied for enhanced comfort. As the beam of light passes over the surface of the treatment area, the resulting channels that are created not only trigger the production of collagen, but they also stimulate elastic fibers. Additionally, unaffected skin between the channels promotes faster healing and less downtime than comparable procedures and technologies.

As the laser is applied, you may feel some warmth. Depending on your needs and specific skin concerns, treatment can range from around 20 to 60 minutes. Right afterward, the treated skin may still feel a little warm, and the area may be somewhat red and swollen. These effects are temporary and may arise depending on the custom settings that were used for your treatment. Most Perfect Skin Dermatology patients get back to the activities they love in about a week. A daily skincare routine further promotes uneventful and healthy healing.
