The Cortex laser system is safe and effective and preferred by patients and professionals as the laser of choice. The Cortex provides outstanding treatment results for wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, skin texture irregularities and pigmented lesions.
The Cortex laser will direct a grid pattern of tiny pulses of light at the skin. Each pulse delivers a column of energy that can reach the skin's dermal layer. This stimulates a natural renewal process of the body's own collagen. Also, because the laser beam has been fractionized, small areas of untreated skin will be left between the treated spots. By strategically performing the procedure in this manner, the healing process is accelerated.
Fractional skin resurfacing is a safe and effective procedure for almost any skin type. Fractional resurfacing can be applied to most areas of the body. Consult your physician to see if fractional resurfacing is right for you.
The Cortex Fractional CO2 treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes.
Treatment sensations vary from person to person. As tiny pulses of energy are delivered into the skin, most patients will experience a warm sharp feeling and an immediate tightening of the skin. Most patients look and feel like they have a mild sunburn for a few days after the treatment. Anesthetic ointments and cooling devices may be used to reduce any discomfort during and after the procedure.
Depending on the desired outcome, post-treatment care will vary from patient to patient. Most patients that have a full facial skin rejuvenation treatment will need to stay indoors for a few days while applying a topical ointment as directed by the physician.
Costs will vary depending on your skin condition and overall treatment requirements. Schedule a consultation today for more details.
