The Medi-CO2 offers aesthetic providers a high powered CO2, which may be used for treating fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and other skin resurfacing indications. Built to withstand a long term investment, the Medi-CO is engineered with an excited metal tube and robust scanner, allowing for precise delivery of energy, and various shapes and scan sizes, up to 20mm x 20mm. Equally important, the Medi-CO allows providers to turn the energy down, and achieve great results with minimal downtime.

What is fractional?
“Fractionated” simply means that rather than delivering energy in a solid laser beam, the light is broken up (fractionated) into thousands of micro beams. The benefit of using this technology by MediCO is that it leaves much of skin tissue not being effected or damaged by the laser which leads to a much more patient comfort and fast recovery.
Fractional laser treatments can deliver very impressive results such as:
Firmer skin tone, diminished pigmentation and age spots, even improved acne scars with only a fragment of the downtime and much faster healing. The recovery process is easier and doesn’t require you to put your life on hold for a month or more.
What are the risks vs Erbium ablative CO2?
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.
