Our BLUEXEL Fractional CO2 Laser offers our clients the ultimate in skin rejuvenation. This safe, effective skin resurfacing treatment is proven for the improvement of common skin concerns including sun damaged skin, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores and Acne scarring.
WHAT IS IT?
BLUEXEL Fractional Laser uses the latest fractional CO2 technology to offer clients the very best in skin resurfacing and dermal rejuvenation. Fractional CO2 Laser works by delivering perfectly controlled energy pulses into the surface of the skin. The laser pulse provides rapid and short bursts of controlled heat resulting in micro-ablation of the skin followed by a lower energy thermal effect which stimulates collagen and elastin production as well as a contraction and tightening effect in the dermis of the skin.
BLUEXEL Fractional CO2 Laser has many variables including scanning method, shape and size of laser delivery area and power intensity giving over thousands of combinations that can be tailored accurately and individually to each patient. As only tiny dots of laser energy are delivered into the skin, normal tissue is left in between the treated areas allowing for a much quicker recovery, with less downtime and risks compared to conventional laser resurfacing treatments.
AM I AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR LASER SKIN RESURFACING?

• Scars from acne or chickenpox.
• Uneven skin pigmentation.
• Skin scars or birthmarks.
• Age spots, liver spots.
• Sun-damaged skin.
• Non-responsive skin after a facelift.
• Fine lines or wrinkles around or under the eyes, forehead or mouth

• Active acne.
• Very dark skin.
• Deep wrinkles.
• Excessive or sagging skin.
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT AFTER-CARE?
• Immediately after treatment, your skin will be red and feel sensitive and sunburned. Redness, swelling, itching or stinging may last for a few days.
• Don’t scratch or pick at skin that crusts as this can cause scarring or lead to an infection.
• Five to 7 days after laser resurfacing, your skin will become dry and peel. Your new skin will at first appear pink. It should begin to gradually lighten up over the next two to three months
• Cleanse the treatment area two to five times a day as instructed
• Sleep on an extra pillow at night to help reduce the swelling for the first four days after the procedure.
• Apply a cool compress or a wrapped ice pack for 15 minutes every one to two hours as needed, during the first 24 to 48 hours.
• Apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly (or any occlusive moisturizer) or antibiotic ointment (such as Laser Doctor cream) to the area twice a day until the skin heals.
• Avoid aggressive facial treatments, such as tretinoin or glycolic acid for four weeks and any topical products that may cause irritation for six weeks following treatment.
• Avoid activities that can cause flushing for two weeks after treatment.
• Don’t smoke. Smoking slows the healing process.
• Apply a daily broad-spectrum (screens both ultraviolet B and ultraviolet A rays) sunscreen after healing to protect your newly laser-resurfaced skin. A sunscreen specifically formulated for use on the face should be chosen, with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30.
• Apply daily moisturizer as instructed
Step 1: Areas of the face to be treated are numbed with a local anesthetic. General anesthesia may be used when the entire face is treated. Then your face or area to be treated with be thoroughly cleaned.
