About Equinox Co2

With the wide variety of fractional lasers available on the market, Dr. Rostami and her team’s excellent skills at Sanctuary Cosmetic Center in Tysons, Va., deliver dramatic results to patients interested in skin rejuvenation with the Equinox CO2 Fractional laser. The treatment offers a superior solution for rejuvenating and resurfacing the skin providing patients with the best results on their investment. This fractional laser can be used effectively to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne and surgical scars, skin pigmentation and discoloration, sun damage, pre-cancerous as well as benign lesions and uneven skin texture.

What To Expect?

A single 30-minute treatment session will result in visible skin rejuvenation. Using Equinox CO2 Fractional versatile hand piece, from adjustable controls to a variety of shape, gives Dr. Rostami many flexible treatment options. Expect excellent improvement on damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, scars, sun damage and skin pigmentation or discoloration.

How Does It Work?

At Sanctuary Cosmetic Center in Tysons, Va., Dr. Rostami uses the flexibility of the Equinox CO2 articulated arm to position herself for optimal treatment efficiency with each patient. The laser delivers thermal energy to the surface of the skin with a pattern of laser light. The laser rays cause minute perforations or holes on the surface of the skin-the epidermis, while leaving the surrounding skin intact. This induces your own body’s collagen to create more collagen to replace what was lost; the result is a total improvement to your skin’s appearance, and a reduction in dark spots and wrinkles. The healing process is quicker, the discomfort is lessened and the recovery time is reduced. You will achieve a youthful appearance within weeks, and your improvement will continue over time as collagen continues to rebuild.

You are a candidate for Equinox CO2 Fractional treatment if you have:

  • Mild to moderate sun damage
  • Fine lines & wrinkles

What’s In It For Me?

  • Treatments are done with topical anesthesia, using numbing cream, which reduces the risk of anesthesia
