Rejuvenate, Resurface, Refresh & Tighten with Co2 Laser
Gone are the days of contoured, baked, and overdone skin. Soft, dewy and iridescent skin is all the rage now. At-home and clinical skin resurfacing treatment can get you there.
But the CO2 laser skin resurfacing procedure will get you there even faster. Get to know more about this laser skin resurfacing and tightening treatment.
Fractional CO2 is a game-changer in the laser skin resurfacing line. Unlike traditional laser treatment, which can hit 100% of the skin, fractional laser works a lot smarter. The fractionation technique releases thousands of short, tiny carbon dioxide laser beams that target only a portion of the skin, layer by layer. This leaves other skin areas untouched, thereby reducing downtime.
Fractional CO2 laser treatment stimulates the production of new, healthy skin cells to replace old, damaged ones. It encourages natural skin healing from the inside out and promotes collagen formation.
Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing can significantly improve the appearance of skin imperfections like fine lines and wrinkles, scars, enlarged pores, and many others. The fractional CO2 laser also has a skin tightening effect that can eliminate sagging skin. It boosts skin elasticity and enhances skin tone.
There will be a visible improvement in the skin in a week or two after laser skin resurfacing treatment. With continued treatment, there will be a marked overall improvement in the skin condition.
With Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing and tightening, you will get a clear, smooth, and radiant skin that everyone admires.
Some good, sensible practices before and after the procedure can help get the optimum result from CO2 laser skin resurfacing. First, it would be better to put off any retinoid products for a week before the treatment. Retinoid can increase skin sensitivity, and CO2 laser can adversely affect the skin treated with any vitamin-A derivatives.
Second, be sure to use adequate sun protection post-treatment. Avoid harsh products and stick only with mild cleanser and moisturiser.
Third, resist the urge to pick on scaly and peeling skin. Allow the skin to fall off naturally when it is ready; do not use any kind of exfoliator. Speeding up the process by forcing off dead skin will only cause reddening and hampers healing. In some cases, this action may even leave unsightly discolouration on the picked area.
Fourth and lastly, limit the use of makeup products as they may have ingredients that can irritate freshly treated skin. Especially never apply concealer to hide skin peeling! It would be wise to adjust activities until the end of downtime. Depending on the size of the treated area, this may mean anywhere from 3 and 10 days.
Like many skin treatments, the CO2 laser skin resurfacing procedure might cause minor side effects, especially on sensitive skin. Redness is quite common and should go away soon with proper aftercare.
Some patients also reported skin purging, where the skin suddenly breakout with whiteheads and pimples. This is also a typical outcome of rapid cell turnover and should clear out once the process is complete.

What is Fractional CO2?
Co2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation is the gold standard of laser treatments and acne scar treatments. It is used to improve skin tone, texture, pores, sun damage, superficial lines and wrinkles. Co2 Laser skin resurfacing suits most skin types, has minimal downtime and minimal discomfort. As well as this, Co2 Laser provides continuous improvement as it stimulates the regeneration of collagen production in the body.
CO2 treatment is best for:
How does it work?
Co2 Laser works by stimulating the skin cells using a precisely controlled energy source. This triggers the skin cells to renew themselves, producing collagen which results in skin elasticity and fullness. The skin then replaces the damaged skin cells with new, healthy cells. The final result is firmer, younger, clearer looking skin.
What to expect during the treatment
A topical anesthetic is applied 45 minutes before all co2 laser treatments to reduce discomfort. Some patients may experience a prickling sensation as the skin tissue is heated. Through this, old skin cells are replaced with new, healthy cells. The final result is firmer, younger, clearer looking skin.
How many treatments are required?
Based on the condition of your skin, the amount of treatments required for optimal results will vary with one to three being the average.
When will results be seen?
Results can be seen within one week, but your skin will continue to improved and the best results will be seen several months after your final treatment. For this reason, repeat treatments should be spaced at least 6-8 weeks apart.
Is everybody suitable for CO2 laser treatment?
Unfortunately, there are some contraindications which are unable to be treated with CO2 laser.
