CO2 Laser

Enjoy Deep Rejuvenation and Skin Resurfacing 

What is a CO2 Laser? 

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 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 return on their investment.  

At Sanctuary Cosmetic Center, 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 skin’s surface with a pattern of laser light. The laser rays cause minute perforations or holes on the surface of the skin while leaving the surrounding skin intact. This induces your body 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 rebuilds.
