What is eCO2™ Plus?
eCO2™ Plus from Lutronic Aesthetic is the fastest CO2 fractional laser on the market. Hailing from a new generation of lasers, eCO2 surpasses the abilities of older technology, but with more precision, speed, and variation; treatment times are shorter and discomfort is lessened as a result. CO2 lasers were originally designed to treat wrinkles and acne scars, but with eCO2’s advanced technology we’re able to effectively treat fine lines and wrinkles, scars, sun damage, textural abnormalities and more.
How does eCO2™ Plus work?
The eCO2 laser selectively singles out a fraction of skin cells at the treatment site, targeting specific cell groups and resurfacing damaged skin. This process triggers new healthy skin growth and intensive healing. Targeting these damaged cells stimulates fresh healthy cell growth with a speed and accuracy unmatched by other lasers. This could be likened to pulling weeds out a garden so flowers can grow, or picking the dead leaves off a plant to regenerate healthy growth.
At Dermatology on Bloor we appreciate the eCO2 laser because it allows us to be even more precise and versatile during treatment. We can choose from a broader scope of settings that allow us to specialize our approach to each patient’s needs. Unlike fractional lasers, which apply micro beams in a grid-like pattern, eCO2 applies beams in a more randomized pattern, decreasing the amount of heat absorbed by surrounding tissue. Patented Controlled Chaos Technology (CCT™) generates random energy delivery patterns to maximize patient comfort. This advancement reduces the number of times that the laser needs to pass over the same targeted area.
In general, treatment with eCO2 is somewhat uncomfortable but not painful. Some patients describe the feeling like a tiny rubber band snapping against the skin or a warm miniature pinprick. With eCO2 your experience will be more convenient and comfortable than previously possible with other CO2 lasers.
Recovery & Results
eCO2 shortens healing time and reduces obstacles to recovery. It is a low-risk procedure with minimal downtime. Following treatment your skin will heal faster than it would with other lasers. You may experience mild swelling or puffiness and some redness or crusting as your skin regenerates. Some patients take a few days off work in order to rest. Most patients experience positive results after one treatment. As you recover you will find your wrinkles are smoother, your skin texture is more even and your complexion has a fresher and more youthful appearance.
