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.
