Course #1 Overview:

CO2 Laser/ Skin Rejuvenation

Fractional laser skin resurfacing is a highly effective, skin rejuvenation laser technique. This treatment is excellent for reducing uneven pigmentation, acne scars and sun damage. Treatments are done most often on the face, but can be done almost anywhere on the body including the face, neck, décolleté and abdomen.

The CO2 laser is one of the most popular laser platforms used in the cosmetic dermatology industry. Physicians and medical spas looking to treat patients quickly and efficiently find this laser especially helpful at removing superficial lines, wrinkles and visible signs of aging.

This procedure uses extremely precise laser technology to cause superficial channels in the skin and to then stimulate the surrounding tissue to grow and replenish itself. This results in a healthier, younger-looking, more youthful appearance and can help turn back the signs of aging. The skin will continue to repair itself and the regeneration process continues for up to 6 months following the procedure.

Being knowledgeable on the technique to perform this service and having advanced training can help you excel in the cosmetic dermatology industry. With this laser training course you will gain the skills necessary to assess and perform the procedure for optimal patient results.
