The Fractional CO2 laser passes microscopic columns of energy into deep layers of the skin, creating a production of new collagen and elastin. The process allows for controlled damage to the cells, triggering the skin’s natural healing process. After the treatment, cells will grow back stronger, firmer, and faster, resulting in smoother and tighter evenly toned skin.
Those suffering from acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity of the jawline and neck and pigment irregularities are the perfect candidate for this highly successful treatment.

Fractional Erbium Laser
Erbium, or ErbiumYAG, lasers use infrared light to penetrate thermal energy superficially below the skin’s surface. Tiny microthermal zones are produced in the middle layer of skin, damaging collagen and aged skin cells, promoting the generation of new collagen and healthy cell regeneration. Erbium laser is a milder, less invasive treatment option than a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser.
Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment
While non-surgical, this treatment is considered to be more invasive than other skin resurfacing treatments, which is why it achieves such noticeable results.
Fractional RF Resurfacing Treatment
Is also very popular and uses an array of silicone-coated needles that penetrate in unison across the skin’s surface and release ablative coagulation, stimulating a fractional production of new collagen, ground substance, wrinkle reduction and tightening.
Fractional Erbium Laser Treatment
Fractional erbium laser treatments are more common in older patients. As it is generally compared to micro-needling, the procedure targets tissue that is deeper below the surface, resulting in improved collagen production. Erbium fractional laser treatments are not ideal for darker skin tones due to a high risk of discoloration. Consult with Dr. Mulholland’s team for any hesitations.
Once a SpaMedica consultant has performed a thorough medical history and physical assessment, the procedure will be reviewed, including aftercare, and recovery. The treatment will be administered within one of our suites under the guidance or direct care of Dr. Mulholland.

Generally, all side effects will subside after a maximum of two weeks. Once your treated areas have healed, a green-based makeup may be used to tone down the redness of your skin. Be sure to opt for oil-free cosmetics.
At SpaMedica, we are committed to reducing or eliminating painful treatments You’ve probably heard that laser treatments feel as if a rubber band is snapping against your skin. We use a potent combination of Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas), topical anesthetic cream, an air chiller and local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Though truthfully, the sensation depends on the depth and area of the procedure along with your pain tolerance. Deeper ablative laser treatments such as CO2 /RF resurfacing may require a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable.
Yes, this type of treatment is safe and effective for facial acne scarring. Still, we recommend that you come in for a consultation to pinpoint exactly which laser or RF resurfacing procedure will work best for your complexion.
Whether you have scheduled appointments for injectables before your CO2 treatment or vice versa, there should be a two-week window between each procedure to give the skin a chance to heal. Despite what you may have heard, laser treatments do not melt fillers. It’s actually recommended that Botox be injected at least two weeks before so that the collagen can support the smoothing of the skin. Having said that, Dr. Mulholland and the other SpaMedica Plastic Surgeons have a tremendous amount of treatment experience and will usually combine Fractional CO2/RF, Fillers and Botox in one carefully and expertly executed treatment session.
