Fractional Co2 Laser

Fractional Carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers are one of the latest advances in non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments.

This Resurfacing laser removes layers of skin in a fractionated method (columns of skin are removed, leaving the skin surrounding each column intact to aid in healing).

The wavelength of light emitted by a CO2 laser is very well absorbed by water in the skin. "Ultra-pulses" of the laser vaporizes lines, wrinkles, scars, dark spots and other irregularities, layer by layer. This process also stimulates the formation of new.

Fractional co2 laser can be used for:

  • Acne Scars
  • Burn scar
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Accidental scars
  • Keloids
  • Hypertrophic Scars

The area to be treated is cleansed first and then a numbing cream is applied. After you numb for about an hour, parameters are set in the machines according to the skin type and nature of the lesion and laser beam is given in a uniform pattern. The treatment takes about 5 minutes for a full face and feels like "pins and needles" sensation which is tolerable. Ice or cooling gel pack is applied on the area before, during and after the treatment, to make it comfortable.

  • Depending on the area and the aggressiveness of the treatment, it will take 5-7days for the skin to heal.
  • Multiple sessions (usually 6-8)are required depending on extent and severity of scars
  • Regular Sunscreen application and sun protection is mandatory.
  • Apply and take medications as instructed by physician
  • Mild redness, dryness, flaking or pigmentation may be seen
  • These effects are transient and usually resolve spontaneously with time
  • Hyperpigmentation may develop if adequate sun protection is not exercised.
