CO2 Fractional Laser treatment is one of the latest state-of-the-art none surgical skin rejuvenation method today’s Aesthetic Medicine and Cosmetic Surgery has to offer.
In this method, it takes the CO2 laser beam to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and it causes controlled dermal damage to the cells. This process allows the cells to be trained to grow back stronger, firmer, and faster, so the skin becomes smoother, tighter and more even in tone.
Applications of Co2 fractional laser:
-Reducing fat and treatment of acne
-Surgical or traumatic scars
-Reduce wrinkles, blotchiness (blotches)
– soften uneven coloration or uneven texture
-reduce textural irregularities due to sun damages
-Brown spots or “sun spots”
-production of new collagen and thickening skin
It is our priority to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible and we apply a light topical anesthetic so you won’t feel much.
During the first 24 hours after treatment, you will notice evenly spaced micro pinpricks on the skin, you may see redness and slight swelling. Ice packs/frozen peas are used 5-10 minutes per hour for the first 5-6 hours after the treatment.
This skin redness is temporary and will be resolved in 2 to 10 days.
Skin peeling is common, rare bruising may develop, which can take up to two weeks to resolve.
We introduce you some products and post-operative Instructions to speed the healing process after treatment.
It’s essential to stay out of the sun in the days following your treatment, as your skin will be more sensitive than usual. If you do need to go outside, apply plenty of sunscreens and wear a hat and sunglasses for added protection.
The immediate result will be clear after a week, but several sessions may be needed to get the full treatment.
The number of sessions depends on how well you protect your skin from the sun and other factors that cause aging like your general health, smoking, changes in weight, etc.
Basically, it takes 3 to 6 sessions a year.
