CO2 Fractional Laser
CO2 fractional lasers have proven themselves repeatedly in treating patients with a wide range of skin complaints:
- Reduction of lines and wrinkles
- Improved skin texture- laxity of skin, aged skin
- Tightening of facial and neck skin
- Reduction of pore size
- Elimination of unwanted pigmentation
- Clearance of precancerous sunspots (actinic keratoses)
- Improvement in scars (e.g. acne scarring, burn scars and stretch marks)
- Uneven skin tone- pigmentation, redness reduced
In just one week, patients begin to notice an improvement in their skin. Results are significant, but due to its nature it is not suitable for everyone. Lifestyle, sun exposure and post care must be taken into consideration. A complimentary pre-consultation and perhaps, some skin preparation, is absolutely necessary to gain optimal outcomes.
CO2 Fractional Laser Explained
CO2 Fractional laser treatments simply means that only a fraction of the skin is treated and ablated (vaporised/removed) as opposed to total ablation of the epidermis (surface of skin). The purpose for that is that healthy, untreated regions serve to shorten healing time significantly.
To understand how this works, envisage a piece of flyscreen through which light is shone- the areas the light penetrates is the ablated area, with the lines on the skin protected by the screen remaining intact. Treatments can be performed at varying levels in the skin, depending on skin type, amount of downtime tolerated and skin issue. Post-procedure there is usually a sunburn-like skin for a day or 2 then microscabbing which later peels off. All up, depending on how aggressive the treatment, about a week to 10 days of looking after your skin.
Post Care for CO2 Fractional Laser Treatments
Camouflage makeup, such as Lycogel or Oxygenetics, which also heal and contain SPF, are a great way to manage lasered skin and a post care pack includes moisturisers, mask and instructions is included in your treatment. LED is also appllied immediately after the treatment, along with a serum, to enhance healing and collagen production. https://www.revivecosmetics.com.au/laser-treatments/my-fractional-laser-journey/
