Matrix CO2 Laser System – Fractional Technology That Makes A True Difference and Greatly Reduces Downtime as Compared to Past CO2 lasers!
How the system works:
The Matrix Fractional CO² laser optimizes traditional CO² treatments by introducing a grid pattern of tiny pulses of light at the skin. Each pulse delivers a column of energy that can reach the skin's dermal layer. This stimulates a natural renewal process of the body's own collagen. Also, because the laser beam has been fractionized, small areas of untreated skin will be left between the treated spots. By strategically performing the procedure in this way, the healing process is accelerated.
A safe, long lasting & effective treatment for:
- Vertical Lip Lines
- Skin Texture Irregularities
- Pigmented Lesions
- Fine Lines
- Acne Scars
- Sun Damage
Is fractional resurfacing right for you?
Fractional skin resurfacing is a safe and effective procedure for almost any skin type. Fractional resurfacing can be applied to most areas of the body.
- Treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes
- Treatment sensations vary from person to person with most experiencing a warm sharp feeling and an immediate tightening of the skin.
- Most patients feel as if they have a mild sunburn for a few days after treatment
- After having a full facial skin rejuvenation treatment one will need to stay indoors for a few days.

Dr DeJoseph - Hand Rejuvenation, Atlanta GA
A Premier image exclusive in Atlanta. Have the kind of smooth, tight skin that only laser can give you but without the hassle factor. This lunchtime laser peel uses nothing more than blown chilled air to cool the skin. Best done in a series of five treatments, the ArcticPeel™ is by far our most popular laser procedure. No anesthetic is required. Mild redness is expected afterward, and patients typically return to work the following day. Best for those people who are beginning to see the results of sun damage and aging on their face but really don't require an aggressive laser resurfacing procedure (or don't have the time for one). Specific benefits for aged and photo-damaged skin include improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, reduction of brown spots and scars, and an overall tightening of the skin. Makeup will go on smoother and you will feel and look younger.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Dr. DeJoseph dicusses the Tattoo-Removal
Tattoos have been around for at least 5,000 years. The interest in removing them is just about as old. Many of the techniques to remove the tattoos in the past have produced less than desirable results. Dermabrasion, or sanding of the tattoo, chemicals, or even the older CO2 or Argon lasers removed tattoos but left undesirable scars.
The Versapulse VPC laser removes tattoo ink using directed rays of light with a very low risk of scarring. This laser is the ultimate tattoo removal system, housing four lasers in one machine. The laser works on all color tattoo inks. Medical research has taught us the exact wavelengths of light used to selectively remove certain colors of ink. The ink is broken up into 10-100 small fragmented particles to be carried off by the body.
After these treatments the tattoo fades and your normal skin tone shows through. New technology laser treatment is effective but slow. Between four and ten laser tattoo removal treatments spaced four to six weeks apart are necessary to remove tattoos. The end result is worth it.
Laser Hair Removal
Whether for hygienic or cosmetic reasons, the patient who is tired of temporary, often painful methods of removing unwanted hair may welcome laser and intense pulsed light hair removal with relief.
Lasers produce highly focused, intense beams of light that are absorbed by dark pigments in the hair follicles beneath the skin's surface and converted to heat, destroying the follicles and preventing hair growth for up to two years. Multiple treatments are required for complete hair removal -- the follicle must be active at the time of treatment, and not all follicles are active at the same time. Treatments are needle-free and do not require anesthesia. Most patients feel nothing more than a slight sting like the snap of a rubber band.
Stretch Mark Reduction
One of the toughest problems that plastic surgeons deal with is stretch marks. Everyone has them, even men. Nothing to date has been developed that can truly take them away entirely but we have developed some systems that can make them less noticeable.
The new Fractional CO2 laser technology can help to rebuild some of the lost collagen back into the stretch marks and then by combining with certain skin care products, the appearance can be minimized.
When one first gets stretch marks they will appear red. This is the best time to treat for maximum results. After a while they generally fade and appear white. If the stretch marks have been there for a long time they are more difficult but the appearance can definitely be reduced.
A huge percentage of women develop stretch marks during pregnancy. Another option to treating those stretch marks is through a surgical procedure commonly referred to as a tummy tuck. In this procedure the skin is removed below the naval where stretch marks most commonly occur.

Laser Removal of Spider Veins, Scars and Stretch Marks
New technology allows us to treat spider veins, scars and stretch marks without surgery or other painful procedures that require an extended hospital stay and long recovery. Laser treatment is painless and does not require anesthesia.
For spider vein treatment, the laser aims carefully controlled pulses of narrow-wavelength light at the damaged veins. The veins absorb the light and heat up, then collapse and close. These techniques also treat a wide variety of scars and stretch marks. The laser's energy stimulates the skin under the scar and causes the fibroblasts in the skin to begin to divide again. It also stimulates the production of collagen. This thickens the skin under the scar until it closely resembles the surrounding normal skin.
