Acne is a common skin problem that normally takes a lot of time and effort to heal. However, sometimes even with proper treatment, acne can leave its impact on the skin in the form of scarring. They can range from minor and inconspicuous marks to severe scars that are difficult to conceal.
We at Shens Medical offer Fractional CO2 laser treatment, which can quickly and effectively reduce acne scars and improve skin texture.
Fractional CO2 is a type of laser which is used to treat acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines and other skin imperfections. The device also has the ability to reduce old collagen while stimulating the formation of new collagen. This can promote the natural regeneration of your skin and aid in scar healing.
The fractional CO2 laser can successfully treat a wide range of skin conditions including enlarged pores, acne marks, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and deep wrinkles as well as uneven skin texture.
The Fractional CO2 laser treats the skin beneath the surface by using carbon dioxide laser beams. It creates tiny zones of injuries in the skin, allowing new collagen to grow and, in the process, elevating depressed scars and smoothening out skin texture.
The CO2 laser treatment is non-invasive and painless. It can last anywhere between 45 minutes to an hour. The first thing that the doctor does is to apply a numbing cream on the face and wait about half an hour. Then, he or she will start treating the face using the laser device. This process usually takes less than 15 minutes. Your skin may look slightly red right after the treatment. However, it will quickly return to normal in a few hours.
For more than a decade, Fractional CO2 has been used successfully for treating acne scars and is considered the ideal treatment. The procedure offers a number of benefits, including
The laser procedure induces collagen remodelling and renewal in an extremely precise way, which can't be achieved with either a medium or deep chemical peel.
The CO2 laser energy stimulates the formation of healthy collagen, improving scar relief and structure, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, improving skin texture, and restoring its youthful appearance.
