AcuPulse™ Fractionated CO2 Laser


If you’ve ever looked in the mirror and wished you could look as young as you feel CO2 at Allure Skin and Laser can take up to 10 years off.  Advances in laser treatment allow us to greatly reduce wrinkles and restore healthy skin with limited downtime. This treatment can achieve improvement for common concerns such as age spots, sun damage, and fine and deeper lines and wrinkles.

Unlike CO2 procedures from many years ago with only fully ablative capabilities resulting in significant downtime of a month or more, our CO2 Fractionated Laser delivers the same energy and because it is delivered in columns there is less surface damage and faster healing.  CO2 at Allure Skin and Laser is the best of both worlds: results after just one treatment with minimal downtime of approximately 5-7 days.  CO2 at Allure Skin and Laser also allows us to customize a treatment with deeper pulses where it’s needed most for the best results customized for you.

AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser is an anti-aging breakthrough in medical aesthetics. The skin resurfacing system reduces deep facial wrinkles, skin damage, sun spots, and acne scars.

With AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser we can deliver a long-lasting solution that allows the skin to restructure its outer layers back to its natural, healthy, glowing complexion.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser work?

AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser uses state of the art technology to provide better results by reducing  the outermost surface of the skin, allowing the skin to restructure into healthy, glowing skin that is unblemished. AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser also works underneath the skin, stimulating the production of collagen. Increasing collagen fills in deep wrinkles and fine lines, reducing their appearance.

What should I expect with treatment?

The procedure is an easy process that should take no more than one to two hours. Recovery time varies from person to person, depending on the depth of the laser treatment and the extent that the skin was treated. The skin will look red for about 1-3 days, but there is no bruising and minimal swelling. Overall, patients’ recovery usually takes about 5-7 days. Patients might begin to notice visible results within 4-6 weeks after treatment and continuing for 6 months while your body continues to produce collagen and elastin.

How should I prepare my skin before my AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser treatment?

To obtain the best possible results, we ask patients to avoid direct sun exposure. We also recommend patients to avoid sun exposure for 7 days after your treatment.  If you are prone to developing cold sores please let us know so that we can give you a prescription for you to fill before your treatment.

We will review a pre treatment protocol to prepare the skin for the treatment with optimal results in mind.  Using recommended skin care and following post care instructions provides the best results and we will discuss the best regimen for you.

Does AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser hurt?

The AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser system features a short pulse duration, which enhances patients’ comfort.  We use topical numbing cream and most patients describe the procedure to feel like a warm sensation on the skin.

Why use AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser as a resurfacing treatment?

AcuPulse Fractional CO2 Laser is an ablative laser resurfacing system that features state of the art technology providing  the lowest level of thermal damage, making it more gentle on the skin and could result in less injury to the tissue. Fractional CO2 treatments consist of faster healing and better results.  Unlike other low energy CO2 devices that require multiple treatments to achieve minimal results,  we are able to deliver superior results after just one treatment.

The Fractional CO2 is the best of both worlds.  Excellent result after only one treatment with minimal downtime.  The fully ablative CO2 recovery time that took a month of downtme and tomato red skin for a month is no longer needed to achieve great results.  Our before and after photos speak for themselves.  We are happy to review a patient CO2 experiece and our before and after gallery of out own patients treated in our office.  Book your consultation day!
