Finexel is an advanced fractional CO2 laser system with 2 different modes such as fractional and CO2 surgical with each handpiece set. It deliveries the finest beam size into the skin for better effects and faster recovery. That is why the product name is Finexel.

The CO2 Fractional resurfacing laser is carbon dioxide laser which precisely removes deep outer layers of damaged skin and stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin underneath. The CO2 treats fine to moderately deep wrinkles, photo damage, scarring, skin tone, texture, crepiness and laxity.

The exact time depends on the area that is being treated; However, typically it takes two hours or less to complete. This timeframe includes an additional 30 minutes for topical numbing to be applied prior to treatment.

The CO2 is the most invasive laser treatment that we have. The co2 does cause some discomfort, but we ensure that our patients are comfortable throughout the whole procedure. The sensation that is often felt is similar to a “pins and needles” sensation.

It’s important that you avoid tanning or heavy sun exposure. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day for 4 weeks before your treatment.
Do not use medications that cause sun sensitivity (such as doxycycline or minocycline) for at least 3 days before treatment.
If you have a history of herpes (such as oral cold sores or genital) or shingles in your treatment area, let your healthcare provider know.  Your healthcare provider may want you to start antiviral medication (such as valacyclovir or acyclovir) as directed. This is usually 2 days before treatment and continued 3 days after treatment.
It’s also important to eat and drink before  your procedure to prevent dehydration.
