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.

Laser procedure will take about 10-15 minutes with little downtime and pain, you may feel a pricking sensation during the procedure. After the treatment, your skin will be slightly red and warm. 

There is a downtime of 5-7 days. Depending on how severe your scarring is, the setting of the laser will be adjusted accordingly. You may experience redness, crusting, dryness or peeling in the treated areas, similar to being sunburnt during the recovery period.
