The Cortex™ laser system is secure and productive being preferred by patients and professionals as the laser of choice. The Cortex™ delivers excellent treatment results for wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, skin texture irregularities and pigmented lesions.
The Cortex laser will direct a grid pattern of small pulses of light to the skin. Each pulse releases a column of energy that can reach the dermal layer of the skin. This stimulates a natural renewal process of the body’s own collagen. In addition, because the laser beam has been fractionated, small areas of untreated skin will remain between the treated points. By strategically performing the procedure in this manner, the healing process is accelerated.
The Cortex Fractional CO2 treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes and most patients feel as if they have a mild sunburn for a few days after treatment. Therefore, it is recommended to stay indoors for a few days while applying a topical ointment as directed by the physician.
