CO2 Fractional Laser and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

A Powerful combo!

CO2 fractional laser resurfacing combined with PRP (platelet rich plasma) has become increasingly popular over the last several years. CO2 fractional laser is the gold standard in skin rejuvenation, and PRP is a rich component of blood containing high concentrations of growth factors, which boost the effect of the CO2 laser and decreases downtime.  At Essence laser and Wellness, we provide safe, versatile and specialized CO2 fractional treatments combined with PRP:  A powerful combination.  

How it worksThe CO2 fractional laser creates microscopic channels in the tissue to stimulate collagen production and reduce wrinkles, age spots, acne scarring, and skin laxity. Only a fraction of the skin is treated leaving surrounding areas of untreated skin to speed healing. The laser treatment can be adjusted depending on the desired downtime and treatment goals. 

When combining PRP post laser, a small amount of blood is drawn, spun in a centrifuge, concentrating your own growth factors by isolating the PRP component. Immediately post laser we apply the PRP topically, which is readily absorbed through the micro channels created by the laser to promote healing and immediate rejuvenation. 

PRP can be added to any CO2 fractional laser treatment to dramatically enhance results, reduce downtime, and generate new collagen production. 

As fall and winter approach, now is a great time to consider CO2 fractional laser and PRP. The results are far superior to that of the Vampire Facial (micro needling & PRP) due to the greater depth of the CO2 laser, with roughly the same downtime!
