CO2 fractional laser treatment is one of the most popular and can be considered the most effective for treating fine lines & wrinkles, acne scarring, pigmentation and significantly improving overall skin texture. CO2 fractional laser is one of the latest technologies used to perform the laser skin resurfacing treatment.
Fractional CO2 laser treatment can address a variety of issues that are related to ageing and skin damage, including:
The fractional Co2 laser treatment can restore brightness, evenness and elasticity to the skin. There are different types of skin rejuvenating procedures that fall under the category of resurfacing treatments. The Co2 laser procedure is a thermal process that involves heating the moisture in your skin with a laser.
During the process, a laser is aimed at the skin using a handheld device. This removes fine columns of skin in layers. Some skin around each column is left intact which can assist with healing. The laser exfoliation can remove fine lines and wrinkles. Combined with the heat from the laser, this action may trigger the skin to produce new skin cells. Those cells fill in your skin’s surface, and can improve the skin’s texture, tone and appearance.
The heat that is produced by the laser impacts the deeper layers of skin too. It can trigger collagen production, which heals the controlled damage that the laser causes. As the collagen fibers bind together, your skin can become tighter and firmer.
CO2 fractional laser treatments is commonly used to improve the appearance of skin on the face, neck, chest and hands. Because it can tighten skin, it can also shrink large pores.
The number of procedures that you’ll need and length of downtime post treatment depends on the condition that you’re treating. Shallow acne scars, pigmentation & uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles may require at least 3 days downtime, while deep acne scarring can require at least 10 days downtime. After the treatment, patients should expect their face to be somewhat irritated.
