ESD uses the Fraxis CO2 laser system. Fraxis is a fractional carbon dioxide laser device utilizing the wavelength of 10,600nm which is in the infrared spectrum. The target for CO2 lasers is the water molecule.Resurfacing and fractional treatments are useful in the rejuvenation of sun damaged and aged skin – they can be used in combination to reduce wrinkles, uneven texture, pore size, and age marks. Fractionated laser treatments can also be used to remodel scarring from all causes – acne scars, surgical scars, traumatic injuries and also hypertrophic and keloid scars. Fractionated treatments are designed to deliver tiny holes of ablation into the skin and so remove areas of sun damage and scarring, allowing new collagen and elastin to form, by treating only a limited surface of the skin this minimises the risk of skin pigmentation irregularity which was a major issue in the past with ablative lasers in particular non-fractional CO2 resurfacing.Fraxis is commonly used at ESD to remove seborrheic keratoses (age moles or barnacles that develop on aging skin), sebaceous hyperplasia (enlarged oil glands that develop with age), sun damaged skin including precancerous changes on the lower lip, enlarged pores - especially rhinophyma (colloquially known as bulbous nose, whiskey nose or potato nose). Stretch marks can also be reduced.
