Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment in Dubai

Fractional CO2 resurfacing is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can take off years from the face and significantly improves the appearance of wrinkles and pigmentation. In the past, traditional CO2 laser treatment removed the entire surface of the skin. However, the modern fractional CO2 laser treatment uses small columns of fractionated energy to ablate damaged areas of skin.

By targeting deeper zones within the skin as opposed to an entire skin surface, fractional CO2 laser treatment is a one-time treatment performed under local anesthesia. It is a minimally invasive, simple, and short procedure.

Who is a Candidate?

You may be an ideal candidate for fractional laser treatment in Dubai if you are experiencing any of the following skin issues:

  • Sagging skin.
  • Fine lines, as well as deep wrinkles and creases.
  • Textural irregularities caused by the sun and environmental damage.
  • Scars caused by acne or surgery.
  • Dull and dark skin tone caused by sun damage.
  • Freckles and blemishes.
  • Enlarged pores.
  • Stretch marks.

Pre Treatment Care

During the consultation, our expert will give you some pre-procedure instructions. Some common instructions include:

  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning for at least two weeks before treatment.
  • Wear strong sunscreen regularly before going in the sun.
  • Do not exfoliate your skin for at least two weeks before treatment.
  • Discontinue using glycolic acid or retinoic acid products a few weeks before treatment.
  • Apply the prescribed topical medications regularly.
  • Avoid wearing makeup before treatment.

Fractional Co2 Procedure

Typically, it takes 20 to 30 minutes to complete. The steps of fractional CO2 treatment in Dubai are:

  • The treatment area is cleansed.
  • Numbing cream or local anesthesia is applied to the treatment area. Most of the patients do not require numbing cream because the discomfort caused by the treatment is bearable.
  • The fractional CO2 laser device is then moved across the skin.
  • During the procedure, a CO2 laser beam is fractionated or pixelated into thousands of tiny shafts of light. These shafts penetrate the deep layers of skin and cause tiny wounds.
  • The healing process involves the replacement of damaged skin with new healthy skin. The heat produced by the laser also causes the shrinkage of collagen and promotes the production of new collagen.
  • Applying cold compresses will help reduce the burning sensation afterward.
