What is CO2 Laser fractional resurfacing, face?
CO2 Fractional Laser is a non-surgical procedure that improves skin texture. It is a great remedy for wrinkles, stretch marks, pigmentation, spots, fine lines. This aesthetic treatment glides and tightens loose skin, especially around the eyes and neck. It also reverses UV damage to the skin.
How does CO2 Laser Fractional Resurfacing works?
CO2 Laser Fractional Resurfacing removes layers from the skin by vaporization. It actually damages the skin in order to speed up the healing process and the formation of new skin layers. The result is: new skin which looks and feels younger.
What the laser does is sending pulses of light. This light is being absorbed by the water in the skin and also the substances called chromophores. The light penetrates deep into the skin and then transforms into heat. This heat destroys the damaged layer of the skin in order to grow a new one that is healthy and vibrant.
Before the procedure, a numbing cream is applied. The treatment is not comfortable and depending on the type of skin some clients might experience pain. This is why we first clean up the skin and apply numbing cream. During the procedure between laser pulses, the skin is wiped with water or saltwater solution to remove the destroyed tissue.
The depth of the laser pulses depends on your skin type and the goals you would like to achieve. Deeper penetration is followed by longer downtime (between 7 and 10 days).
What to expect after the CO2 Laser Fractional Resurfacing treatment?
We are not going to fool you – there is a period of time that you won’t feel very happy with your skin. In the first few days after the treatment, you might feel a slight burning sensation. It will help to apply ice packs and painkillers. The pain of course is not unbearable. It feels like sunburn.
Then your skin will start to peel. This means that the healing process has already kicked in. you are now removing old, damaged layers from your skin I forming new healthy ones. After this period ends (7-10 days) you might have slight redness on your face.
The more you protect your skin from sunlight the faster it will heal and the better results you will see. It is crucial to avoid sunlight during healing. This is the key to your successful healing.
