Fractional CO2 with Tetra

The unique and exciting Tetra fractional CO2 laser is a state-of-the-art aesthetic technology that treats multiple signs of aging at once. This carbon dioxide (CO2) laser is minimally invasive, carries little downtime, and is safe and efficient.

Key Benefits of the Tetra CO2 Laser

  • Offers more control than any other CO2 device
  • A very versatile laser (includes four modalities)
  • Has settings that can be customized to any patient 
  • Can be performed without any numbing cream
  • Treatments and recovery are both very quick

How Does Tetra CO2 Work?

The Tetra CO2 laser works by creating micro-injuries in the skin. The skin responds to these tiny injuries by regenerating the damaged tissue, which results in an increase in the natural production of collagen and the overall rejuvenation in the skin’s appearance. Lines, laxity, and other aesthetic concerns are visibly reduced and the overall tone and texture of the skin are dramatically improved.

Treatment Details: What to Expect

Before your Tetra CO2 procedure, you should stay out of the sun for at least two weeks and halt use of retinols and glycolic and salicylic acids. 

The day of your treatment, your skin will be cleansed and, if needed, a topical anesthetic will be applied. If this is needed, please be aware that numbing takes approximately 25 minutes.

The laser will pass over the skin where treatment is needed for about ten minutes depending on the size and location of the treatment area, as well as the severity of symptoms. More aggressive treatments will require fewer sessions, while less aggressive treatments may require a series of treatments (but will involve less downtime). During your consultation, we will explain how many treatments you will need.
