The appearance of the skin’s surface plays a major role in your perceived age. Fractional CO2 resurfacing is an essential part of Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jason Bloom ’s anti-aging arsenal. This treatment addresses fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, rough texture and other visible signs of skin aging by removing the uppermost layers of skin and prompting the skin to produce more collagen as part of the healing process. The Lumenis Active FX system allows Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jason Bloom to precisely remove damaged skin to a predetermined depth, while Deep FX is used to help improve acne scarring and tighten skin. When these two treatments are combined, the treatment is called Total FX, which offers dramatic results with about one week of downtime.
After one 30-minute full-face treatment, you can see a significant reduction in fine lines, wrinkles and pore size, as well as an overall tightening of the skin. Results continue to improve as the skin produces collagen over the six months following treatment, and fractional CO2 resurfacing is often recommended in conjunction with facial plastic surgery for optimal results.
