Ablative Fractional Laser
The eCO2 ablative fractional laser is a state-of-the-art laser system designed to rejuvenate dull, lax skin of the face and neck. The treatment removes very small (120 microns or roughly one-tenth of a millimeter) columns (micro-ablative columns or MACs) of skin to a depth selected by Dr Holcomb. The MAC depth goes through the outer layer of skin (epidermis) and deep into dermis – with both the depth of treatment and density of MACS (how close they are together) working together to obtain the desired outcomes of improving the damaged outer skin layers, stimulating collagen production and skin tightening. Dramatic improvement can be achieved for fine lines, small superficial blood vessels, brown discoloration, skin laxity and wrinkles. The eCO2 ablative fractional laser is also effective for improvement of surgical and traumatic scars.
