Fractional CO2 Laser is suitable for face, neck and decollete, hands, most other body areas. This procedure is very effective for skin resurfacing, eg, acne scars, skin tightening, textural improvement, wrinkles, skin peels, melasma, age spots, sun damage etc.
Working with the CO2 Laser is as following:
1) Aesthetic cream is applied on the skin surface to numb down the possible pain felt during the treatment.
2) Laser treatment is applied on patient's treatment area in order to remove acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines without causing any problem.
3) The patient doesn't feel anything during the scar removal treatment as the numbing cream is applied on the patient's body.
While working, laser beam is broken into a random pattern of microscopic beams.
Different patterns can be used to cover parts of the treatment area to provide a uniform coverage.
Micro laser beams can remain the intact skin and reduce downtime. The laser beam can penetrate from a few micron depth to 1.5mm or more into the skin.
Downtime and results can be customized from full resurfacing to a gentle peel with minimal downtime.
Downtime- 3 days for a superficial peel
Downtime- 7days for a medium level
To two week or more for deep skin resurfacing
Different downtime results in different results.
While working, there will generate white 'dots'. White ‘dots’ are only visible for a few minutes after the procedure. Then they will be replaced by a mild pink hue.
Skin appears similar to a sun burn for a few days
Laser resurfacing is a method of reducing wrinkles, scars and blemishes. By using a laser to remove the outermost surface of the skin, laser resurfacing offers the skin a chance to regrow into a glowing, unblemished surface. Laser resurfacing also stimulates collagen growth underneath the skin. With increased collagen, wrinkles are filled in, reducing or eliminating their appearance.
