WHAT IS FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Fractional CO2 Laser helps correct deep wrinkles and promotes the formation of tight, new and young skin.

Fractional carbon dioxide laser (10600 nm) is a safe and effective laser skin resurfacing method that helps to correct deep wrinkles, promoting the formation of tight, new and young skin. The working principle is based on high-intensity carbon dioxide laser that is used to vaporize unwanted tissue. Fractional carbon dioxide laser delivers faster recovery time due its working feature. In this technique, thousands of microscopic heat colons go deep into the skin, damaged old skin cells are removed, and the growth of healthy new cells for a brighter and younger skin is encouraged.

WHICH SKIN AREAS ARE SUITABLE FOR FRACTIONAL CARBON DIOXIDE LASER?

It can be applied not only to facial lines and wrinkles but also to other skin areas including neck, low-neck and hand.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE THE POSITIVE EFFECTS OF FRACTIONAL CARBON DIOXIDE LASER TREATMENT?

You can see some results, such as improvement in smoothness, brightness and tightness of the skin surface immediately after application, and you will experience remarkable skin renewal within 3-6 months.

WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE FOLLOWING THE PROCEDURE?

You need to avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen (at least 30 SPF) for one month following the procedure.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FRACTIONAL ABLATIVE CARBON DIOXIDE LASER AND FRACTIONAL NON-ABLATIVE LASER TREATMENTS?
