What Is Fractional CO2 Laser?
Hi everyone, I hope you are having a great week thus far and are fully embracing the challenges of daily life. For today’s topic, I want to highlight another one of our clinic’s treatments – Fractional CO2 Laser. It can treat a multitude of skin conditions, making it a versatile treatment that is suitable for many people.
How Does It Work?
Fractional CO2 Laser is also known as Fractional Laser Resurfacing (Lux1540) and is a non-ablative treatment that has the ability to duplicate results which are very similar to the effect that deep chemical peels or ablative laser resurfacing has on the skin. The key difference is that there is no discomfort during the procedure or any downtime as is usually the case with these techniques.
The technology makes use of laser energy micro beams, penetrating the skin tissue through the epidermis. During the process, your body will begin healing naturally; this leads to the generation of fresh, healthy tissue to replace the skin tissue in the affected areas undergoing the laser treatment.
The scar left behind will be of a lighter colour which means it will not be as glaring, and your skin texture will also be more even. No wounds will be visible, allowing you to apply make-up as you please after the procedure.
The amount of time between treatments and the total number of sessions required will vary depending on your condition, as well as the severity of it. Our doctors will consult you and recommend a suitable number as required by your condition.
What Can It Treat?
Stretch marks are fairly common and most people are likely to experience them at some point. They are likely to occur during periods of rapid growth or weight gain, with fine lines forming on the body due to skin being stretched.

Acne is usually a problem that usually pops up during puberty, but it can also affect adults. When the pores in your skin are blocked by oil accruing, the dead skin cells cannot be removed by sebum, causing the formation of pimples.
Wrinkles and fine lines are usually signs of aging, and are folds or creases in the skin. They can also be causes by overexposure to the sun, smoking or dehydration. The skin is unable to snap back into place as it becomes less elastic, leaving visible creases on your skin.

Dull skin is primarily caused by a lack of sleep, which can lead to dark eye circles and eye bags. Stress also contributes to tired looking skin, while dust and pollution in the city may also settle on your skin, adding to its dull appearance.
Large pores are common in oily skin, as sebum and dirt collect and cause your skin to swell. As a result, pores also get stretched out, making them appear larger than usual.
