CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Fractional CO2 resurfacing can erase years from your face and dramatically  improve the appearance of wrinkles and pigment, but is not a lunchtime procedure.

 

Fractional CO2 Laser uses small columns of fractionated energy to ablate areas of damage. Tiny wounds are made and the surrounding healthy skin helps with healing, making new collagen and elastin. By targeting zones deep in the skin as opposed to the entire skin surface, fractional CO2 resurfacing is a one-time treatment performed with local anaesthesia. It offers excellent improvement in wrinkles, discolouration and scarring by stimulating collagen production.

 

For the recovery you’ll need to follow specific skin-care instructions. Immediately after your skin will be raw and oozing and probably covered in ointment. Crusts will form over the first week and the healing skin beneath will be pink and very sensitive. Although the skin heals within a month. Once you have fully healed you should notice a significant improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity and discolouration.

How can I be sure this treatment is safe and effective for me?
