CO2 Fractional Laser Info

CO2 fractional laser can address a variety of issues that are related to ageing and skin damage, including:

  • Age spots
  • Freckles and other uneven skin tone issues
  • Fine lines
  • Significant wrinkles
  • Shallow acne scars
  • Deep acne scars
  • Loose skin
  • Irregular texture
  • Dullness
  • Thinning skin
  • Unresponsive skin after a facelift
  • Uneven pigmentation

This 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. This 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.

More Details About the Procedure

CO2 fractional laser 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.

LED with every CO2 fractional laser treatment

Complimentary LED valued at $79 with every laser treatment. Hair and Skin Science uses the newest LED technology that is TGA approved from Korea, USA and China.

LED can help reduce the controlled inflammation caused by laser skin resurfacing. The red light may accelerate the healing process and can stimulate the production of collagen. More collagen production can result in more vibrant and youthful skin.
