Fractional Erbium/Fractional CO2 in Plano, TX
Fractional erbium and fractional CO2 lasers offer men and women innovative ways to treat signs of aging without surgery. Our Medical Laser Specialist, Paul Kraft, specializes in fractional erbium/fractional CO2 treatments for residents of Plano, Frisco or the greater Dallas metro area.
What is Fractional Erbium/Fractional CO2?
Fractional erbium and fractional CO2 lasers are two unique anti-aging technologies for cosmetic treatments. Both systems remove damaged layers of skin to reveal smoother, younger skin. The primary difference between the two systems is how the laser energy penetrates the skin. Fractional erbium lasers remove the first three layers of skin and is recommended for:
- Scars, including from acne, surgery, trauma, burns
- Wrinkles and lines
- Stretch marks
- Treating delicate skin around the mouth and eyes
- Flaws related to pigmentation, such as age spots
- Enlarged pores
Fractional CO2 lasers work by creating micro-channels in the skin. These types of lasers are generally used for targeting specific areas of the face rather than the entire face like the fractional erbium lasers. We recommend fractional CO2 laser treatments for the localized treatment of deeper wrinkles and other types of skin damage. We use the very latest and safest fractional CO2 technology available.

We also offer PRP, platelet rich plasma, as an option to the fractional Erbium/C02 treatment. Using a concentration of platelets from your own blood, your stem cells and growth factors can hasten recovery, and produce even better results. Ask for details
Am I a Good Candidate for Fractional Erbium/Fractional CO2 Treatment?
If you have mild to moderate signs of aging, you may be a good candidate for fractional erbium/fractional CO2 treatments. Some patients, though, may require surgery to achieve the best results. In these cases, we may recommend treatment with a fractional erbium/fractional CO2 laser post-surgery to further smooth and tighten the skin and correct problems that cannot be resolved with surgery, such as age spots.
The Fractional Erbium/Fractional CO2 Procedure
Both of the procedures are very comfortable and convenient. You should expect the appointment to last one hour to allow for preparation and post-treatment care. The laser energy is delivered to the treatment area with a special hand piece. Short bursts are used to precisely deliver the laser to the appropriate layers of skin. Each burst feels similar to snapping your skin with a rubber band. If you feel uncomfortable with the application of the laser energy, we can apply a topical numbing agent to the skin.
Fractional Erbium/Fractional CO2 Treatment Results and Your Expectations
Your skin may be slightly red and swollen after the treatment. These symptoms should last only one to two days. You may notice some small areas of flaking and peeling skin. This indicates that the laser has effectively removed the damaged skin. As this process occurs, you will also notice the emergence of younger, flawless skin. Your scars and age spots are less noticeable. For optimum results, we may recommend multiple treatments.
