How does Fractional CO2 Laser work?
Fractional CO2 Laser works by emitting thousands of tiny microthermal zones in the target areas, penetrating into deep skin layers to create numerous microscopic thermal injury zones.
The tiny areas of “controlled damage” triggers your body’s natural healing process and stimulates new collagen production and renewal of skin cells. Fractional CO2 Laser treatment targets sunken scars and old collagen to rejuvenate ageing skin.
Unlike traditional ablative lasers, Fractional CO2 Laser treatment provides results with lesser downtime and side effects.
