CO2 Fractional Laser
How does CO2 Fractional Laser work and would it benefit me?
Fractional CO2 Laser works by creating thousands of micro-columns that extend into the deeper layers of the skin. Heat energy is then emitted into these individually created columns. This activates the body’s natural immune and healing process which involves collagen stimulation, tissue regeneration, improved skin integrity and structural support.
The outcome of this treatment is:
- Less wrinkles
- Reduced visibility of pigmented spots and blemishes
- Reduced pore size
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Resurfaced, rejuvenated and revitalised skin
After your treatment you may experience mild erythema (skin redness) and swelling. This can last up to 2 days depending on the depth of the treatment.
We will apply a post treatment soothing balm and calming recovery cream to your skin to help reduce redness and swelling.
Your skin might also feel tight in the 2-7 days following your treatment. Use a generous amount of the recommended post treatment balm to relieve this dry, tight feeling. Gradually, your skin will start to lightly shed old cells until it becomes smoother, softer and clearer.
Suitable for: All skin types. For darker skin types, skin prep with a melanin inhibitor is highly recommended prior to treatment.
Duration: 40-60 minutes (including pre treatment cleansing and numbing)
