Matrix CO2 Fractional Laser

 

I am so impressed with the results I got from my CO2 treatment! I had bad acne scars from when I was younger and this procedure helped to smooth out the skin a lot. Although they are not gone completely, when I look in the mirror I am ecstatic not to see what I used to call my face craters. Even better I now feel more comfortable letting my fiancé run his hand along my face!* - E.S.


The Matrix CO2 Fractional Laser Therapy helps minimize wrinkles, sun damage, discoloration, and scarring all while helping increase collagen production through its revolutionary fractionated CO2 technology. Unlike traditional CO2 laser resurfacing, the Matrix CO2 laser resurfacing has more manageable downtime and manageable sensation during the treatment. This is an effective treatment for both men and women and excellent results can be obtained in as little as 1 or 2 treatments.*

Conditions Treated

What Areas Can Be Treated?

  • The Matrix CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing can be performed on numerous areas of the body including the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and abdomen.

How Does It Work?

The high speed UltraFine Fractional scanner will direct a grid pattern of tiny pulses of light called MicroAblative Columns (MACs) at the skin. Each MAC delivers a column of energy that can reach the skins dermal layer while preserving the untreated skin in between the columns. This process promotes rapid healing and stimulates a natural renewal process of the body's own collagen.

What To Expect

  • In most cases the actual laser treatment time takes less than 30 minutes, but the time will depend on the area(s) of the body being treated.
  • The treatment has minimal discomfort with the use of a topical anesthetic and there are fewer side effects.
  • 1 to 2 treatments are usually needed. If you do need 2 treatments, the second one will need to be performed at least 8 weeks after the initial treatment.*

After Treatment

  • Immediately after the treatment, your skin will feel warm but ice packs and cool wash cloths are helpful and will also reduce swelling.*
  • Harmony Laser Center has put together a skin care kit that includes cleanser, moisturizing barrier protection cream, sun block, and pillow protectors, all to be used post treatment.*
  • Downtime is much less than traditional CO2 resurfacing. You can expect some possible pinpoint bleeding for the first day as well as redness and swelling which can last from 4 to 7 days.*
