Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is the most recommended laser treatment because of its effective outcomes and easiness.
How it is performed?
Carbon dioxide fractional laser skin resurfacing is performed by removing layers of skin tissues in fractionated manner in which skin layers are removed in fractions. Skin is left intact around each fraction which aids in healing process.
Although, the process is painless, but a numbing cream can be applied on the treatment area after cleansing it so you don’t feel any discomfort. Fractional CO2 laser device is used to deliver CO2 laser beam in the fractionated manner. The laser beam is pixelated into thousands of tiny shafts of light, which penetrate in the skin layers deeply. This penetration causes tiny wounds. The heat caused by laser reduces collagen and encourages the natural formation of new collagen. Cold compresses are applied to reduce the burning sensations or discomfort after the procedure.
How many sessions are required?
Three to four treatments are recommended to achieve the optimal results. Some patients may require less or more treatments depending upon their needs and skin condition.
Are there any side effects?
Laser skin resurfacing does not have any potential side effects. It is a safe and totally non-invasive treatment. You may experience for two to three days. There are no long term side effects and your doctor will discuss all effects based on your skin condition.
Does the treatment cause pain?
No, the procedure is painless. You may feel a warm sensation for several minutes. However, a numbing cream is applied before the procedure to avoid any pain or discomfort.
