So, what is CO2 fractional laser and what does it do?
What does it do?
It is one of the best laser treatments for skin rejuvenation. It reduces fine lines, wrinkles, improves skin texture, reduces pore size, improves acne scars and stretch marks, general tone and elasticity of skin.
This ablative laser vaporizes skin in microscopic columns (it treats only a fraction of the surface- hence it is a fractional treatment ). It concurrently heats the underlying layer, causing it to produce new and better collagen bringing more volume and life to your skin. Because it is only treating a fraction of your skin, it causes only minimal damage to healthy skin. Consequently, downtime and subsequent care is substantially less than with previous ablative laser treatments. Healing is fast and replaces old, damaged cells with healthy glowing skin. Typically, you have a ‘sunburned’ type of effect with microscabs which exfoliate off which heal between 4 and 7 days, leaving skin refreshed. But the real result shows itself about 2 months later when skin cell turnover is done and skin looks so much smoother, lines and pore size are less. It is a game of patience but worth the wait.
An initial consultation is required to establish your needs and expectations and to determine if this is a suitable treatment for your skin and lifestyle. You can ask questions, discuss your goals and make sure you understand the procedure and outcomes.
You will probably need to begin some preparatory skin treatments. These usually begin 4 weeks prior to treatment. During this period, you will work closely with your practitioner to ensure that everything is going to plan, and that your skin is properly prepared to receive the laser treatment.
