Tame Fine Lines
Countless patients of all ages are bothered by bumpy skin, scars, and undesired wrinkles. To fix these issues, Ciao Bella Medical Spa offers CO2 skin resurfacing with the Alma Hybrid™, which is a customizable aesthetic service that harnesses CO2 ablative and nonablative laser energy. By pairing both the 1570nm and CO2 devices in one machine, laser treatments with the Hybrid are great at taming fine lines, sun spots, scarring, and an uneven complexion. Alma's Hybrid technology is well-known for its capability of personalizing several variables, such as the intensity of the energy's penetration. Depending on the condition of your complexion, the device can be altered as needed. With accuracy and efficiency, CO2 skin resurfacing sessions can take as little as 30 – 40 minutes to pass over the entire face or treatment area. Dr. Jon Ricks and our talented team in Frisco, TX, are happy to offer this innovative option to let people experience softer, youthful, and healthier skin.
A cosmetic specialist on our skilled team will discuss the ways you can accelerate your complexion's recovery after a laser service. The most important piece of advice is to not pick at the skin, as can result in long-term damage, including scarring. You should pause all methods of hair removal on the lasered tissue, which includes shaving, threading, or hair removal ointments. For most people, we could also give you a cream to help relieve and encourage healing in the treated places.
During CO2 laser resurfacing Frisco patients will ease back in a private treatment room as the Hybrid laser device's handpiece is guided over the targeted areas. Both the ablative and non-ablative energy is administered within the same burst onto the skin. This allows for shorter treatment times at our office and decreases the odds of overheating the regions. As soon as your treatment is finished, our staff at Ciao Bella Medical Spa will provide all of the needed post-session guidelines to make sure you achieve your ideal outcomes.
As mentioned above, the Alma Hybrid™ uses a combination of CO2, 1570 nm, and impact energies. Ablative, non-ablative, and impact (ultrasound) affect the skin in different ways and produce different results. By combining these energies in one device, the Alma Hybrid gives our laser technicians more versatility in treating your skin. It’s why Dr. Ricks had to be the first OB/GYN in the nation to have this exciting and versatile laser skin treatment.
Varying by your desired results, a customized treatment plan will be carefully curated for you. While at your consultation, our Frisco CO2 laser resurfacing providers will let you know how many treatments might be required for you and how often you should receive treatment. Sessions will need to be set up with enough time apart to enable you to recover completely.

"Dr. Ricks is a great doctor! He’s compassionate and understanding. He also takes time to listen to what I have to say instead of trying to rush me out, which is very important. He also takes time to call to check on me after the many surgeries that I have had, and that says a lot. Dr. Ricks goes above and beyond for his patients. A doctor that goes that extra mile and still has time to run a full time business says a lot. THANK YOU, DR.RICKS."

"Dr. Ricks is by far the best OBGYN out there. From the first appointment, he has been great. His bedside manner is amazing, and he is truly knowledgeable and will spend the time with you to be sure you understand what’s going on, too. He will go above and beyond for his patients and has personally done that for me, as well as a couple of my friends that see him too. The office staff and clinical team are also top-notch…You’re not just another number to any of them. Hands down, the best office."
