What Is Fractionated CO2?
The eCO2 by Lutronic is a fractional ablative laser procedure that offers a full range of resurfacing and aesthetic treatments – with minimal downtime and little discomfort to the patient.
A patented system places each micro laser beam in such a way that heat is dissipated between shots, reducing damage, and speeding up rejuvenation and efficacy.
What Lutronic eCO2 Treats?
One of the benefits of the Lutronic eCO2 laser is the versatility it provides during treatment, enabling your Feldmar Aesthetics provider to use a variety of settings to disperse the laser beam bursts across the treatment area. This reduces heat absorption by surrounding tissues, which can be very helpful for reducing time after your treatment.
Additionally, the laser can be calibrated with a variety of settings, which allows your provider to fine-tune the treatment to your specific needs. Feldmar Aesthetics providers can use this laser to treat issues like:
- Dark spots on the face, neck, hands, and other parts of the body
- Acne scars
- Scars (Acne, Surgical, Other)
- Skin resurfacing
How Lutronic eCO2 Works
The Lutronic eCO2 is an ablative laser that resurfaces damaged skin by selectively targeting a fraction of the skin cells at the treatment site. This process acts not only to target damaged cells, but also stimulates the growth of healthy skin and supportive collagen fibers. As the skin heals, dark spots fade, wrinkles smooth, and skin texture and complexion improve.
Does Lutronic eCO2 Hurt?
Because the Lutronic eCO2 laser targets a portion of skin cells at the treatment site, some discomfort is to be expected during the procedure. However, Feldmar Aesthetic providers will go to great lengths to maximize your comfort. This may include the use of a numbing cream, nerve blocks, IV sedation or Pronox (laughing gas).
Further, comfort is increased because the laser uses a pseudo-randomized approach to delivering the micro-laser beams to the skin. This is similar to the fractional laser method, but instead of a grid pattern, the micro beams are applied in a more randomized manner, which reduces heat absorption by surrounding tissues. It’s a vital aspect of this eCO2 laser, as the decreased energy absorption significantly increases patient comfort after the procedure and reduces healing time.
Additionally, the unique laser targeting methodology of Lutronic eCO2 reduces the number of times the laser is passed across the same segment of the skin, which further reduces discomfort.
How Many Lutronic eCO2 Treatments Will I Need?
Each patient’s situation is unique, and the number of treatments needed will depend on your skin condition and aesthetic goals. However, most patients may see dramatic improvement after just one treatment.
