Fractional carbon dioxid laser face resurfacing
With ageing wrinkles, pigment spots appear on the face, on the neck, the skin will be sallow, thin and its elasticity decreases. The ageing is influenced by sun exposure, smoking and genetic factors. Two types of wrinkles exist: the dynamic or mimic and the static. The dynamic wrinkles are caused by the repeated movement of the mimic muscles and they appear around the eyes, on the glabella and on the front. They may appear already at the age of 30, earlier then the static wrinkles. The nasolabial folds, the Marionette lines and the rhytides in the glabellar region belong to the static wrinkles. The age spots usually appear after the age of 50 on the face, on the neck, on the dorsal surface of the hand. Their number may vary from one to numerous, its diameter is between 2-10 mm, and their color is not influenced by sun exposure.

The mode of action of carbon dioxide fractional laser face resurfacing
The light of the fractional carbon dioxide laser is absorbed in water. The light reaches the skin surface in numerous separated columns removing the old epidermis and dermis. The number of the columns variable between 64-144/cm2, the pulse length can be influenced too. There is a quick recovery of the epidermis from the remaining cells between the columns. The heat effect of laser stimulates the dermal fibroblast to produce large amount of collagen end elastic fibers. The skin will be more tight and flexible.
