There are risks associated with ablative Erbium lasers, like hyperpigmentation, which are leading more dermatologists and plastic surgeons to prefer Fractional CO² which is: less intense, less invasive, more patient comfort, fast recovery, safety and short downtime. The MediCO CO² fractional laser is offering all of that.
The most Important issue to make a big deferent between Erbium invasive procedure and CO² Glass fractional technology, has to do with the downtime, the results, and the fast healing.
Some patients cannot tolerate a month or more of healing, goopy skin, oozing, so they are not candidates for Erbium Invasive, as well as the healing and risk of hyper or hypo pigmentation is greater with Erbium because more tissue is removed.
The MediCO CO² Fractional laser have less downtime, less skin removed, less issues with post care, and less post treatments complications. It is true that more sessions are needed to reach the expected result, but procedures are usually performing more patients comfort, safety and high quality results performance.
