Our clinic is equipped with a state-of-the-art laser Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fractional Laser.
The CO2RE Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fractional Laser is used for skin resurfacing treatments that help combat skin aging and the effects of over exposure to the sun, as well as in the treatment of non-malignant tumours. It is effective in reducing age-spots, otherwise called liver spots or lentigines, in addition to fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and uneven skin coloration. It is an advanced pain free procedure to aid skin regeneration and help restore a youthful experience.
It works by removing layers of skin tissue using a fractionated method, whereby small strips of skin are removed, leaving the skin surrounding each section intact to aid in healing. The results achieved with just one procedure can be compared to having a number of non-invasive treatments at once. It is also considered the best single treatment for advanced skin damage and wrinkling. Following treatment, skin will continue to improve for a period of 6 months provided proper skincare is used and sun exposure is minimized.
One aspect of this treatment that could be considered negative, is the necessary recovery time. Depending on the area and the extent of the treatment, it will take 7-14 days for the skin to heal. Most patients compare the post-procedure feeling to bad sunburn for up to 2 days. Redness and soreness will be experienced following the process and skin must be kept moist.as there will be dryness and flaking.
