CO and Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing
The Cortex laser system is preferred by patients and professionals for a safe, effective treatment for wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage and more.
Enhances Collagen Production
As a person ages, their collagen production begins to decline which leads to the breakdown of the skinâ€™s underlying support structure. Daily exposure to UltraViolet (UV) rays and other environmental elements can cause the skin to become discolored and premature wrinkles may emerge. Treatment with the Cortex laser system will enhance the skinâ€™s strength and elasticity. The skin will have a smoother, lighter texture and pigmentation problems will begin to diminish.
How Cortex Laser Technology Works
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 skinâ€™s dermal layer. This stimulates a natural renewal process of the bodyâ€™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.
Treatment Outcome Desires
The Cortex laser technology is designed in such a way that the treating technician has precise control over the intensity of the treatment. Each individual treatment can be tailored to a specific need and allotted downtime.
How long will my treatment take?
Treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes.
What does the laser treatment feel like?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 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.
How do I take care of my skin after treatment?
Depending on the desired outcome, post-treatment care will vary from patient to patient. Most patients that have a full facial skin rejuvenation treatment must avoid direct sun for a few days while applying a topical ointment as directed by the physician.
How much do treatments cost?
Costs will vary depending on the size of the area being treated and the amount of treatments required. See our pricing guide for the most current prices.
