What is CO2 Fractional Laser peel treatment?
CO2 Fractional Laser involves an intense beam which is passed through the dermis. This treatment works by interacting with the skin to produce Microthermal zones (MTZ). Collagen and elastin are produced as the skin heats up and stimulates the cells. This treatment eliminates damaged outer layers of skin, bringing about smoother, younger, healthier-looking skin.
What are the areas where CO2 Fractional Laser treatmentcan be done?
CO2 Fractional Laser peel treatment is commonly used for pigmented spots on the face, hands and back. It can treat the following skin conditions:
- Stretch marks
- Acne scars on the face, back, chest and shoulders
- Accident scar – face and body
- General Skin rejuvenation
How many sessions will be required?
DNA Skin Clinic consultants will assess your skin individually and plan a custom-made programme to provide you with the best results. We recommend about 4-6 sessions that are spaced 3-4 weeks apart.
Between each session, it is mandatory to apply a sunscreen of SPF 30 with an antioxidant, retinol serum and oral antioxidants.
What are the side effects of CO2 Fractional Laser treatment?
This laser treatment is very safe and non-carcinogenic (non-cancerous). The levels of discomforts differ according to individuals’ skin. No long-term side effects have been observed until now.
What are the post-procedure treatments to be followed?
Redness and swelling may be experienced in the treated area for 24-48 hours after the treatment. To heal the wound, use a hyaluronic acid aftercare product to hydrate the skin. After treatment, avoid the following for 24-48 hours:
- Perfume, body lotions, after-shave and make-up
- Exposing skin to heat like jacuzzi, hot showers, saunas and steam rooms
- Swimming and cardiovascular exercise
- Facial and body treatments
