What does it treat?

Tightens loose skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Reduces pore size and pigmentation.


How does it work?

Fractional CO2 delivers pulsed light beams in a grid pattern that remove the upper epidermal layer of the skin and contract the collagen fibres in the deeper dermal layer. The removal of the epidermis reveals a fresher looking complexion and the contraction of the dermal layer has a tightening effect.
