Fractional CO2 laser treatment produces more significant and quicker benefits.

It allows for treatment to deeper parts of the skin, treating more stubborn skin conditions such as severe acne scars and wrinkles.

Results are quickly seen within a week even after the first session. Skin appears softer, fairer and more taut. Blemishes including lines, scars and pigmentation are lightened. The benefits of the treatment continues over the next few months as the skin continues to produce new collagen.

The fractional CO2 laser treatment can be used on any part of the body , particularly the face, neck, chest and hands. Therefore it can be used to even treat difficult areas around the eyes, lips, necks and hands.

How does it work?

As the body ages, the appearance and quality of the skin deteriorates. Both the epidermis and dermis becomes thinner and damaged, resulting in the formation of facial blemishes, sagging skin and wrinkles.

Numbing cream is first applied to the skin .Fractional CO2 laser treatment treats both the epidermis and dermis. The laser beam is broken up into many micro energy beams that are delivered into the skin, producing separate and deep columns of treatment areas known as microthermal treatment zones(MTZs).

Within each MTZ, blemished cells in the epidermis are removed. Collagen regeneration and remodeling are also stimulated in the dermis. The healthy and intact cells around the MTZs allow for a quick healing process.This process lead to generation of new ,healthy collagen to smooth out the acne scars.

Is there any downtime ?

Down time is about 4-5 days. The skin turns slightly red in the first 2 days and the scabs formed will drop off on the 4th or 5th day leaving a brighter smoother skin complexion.

How many sessions do I need ?

The total number of sessions needed will depend on the severity of the scars.Generally most people require between 4-5 sessions spaced at 4-6 weeks interval.
