Fractional CO2 Laser Process

Pre-Treatment Consultation and Skin AssessmentApplication of Topical Numbing CreamAdministration of Laser Treatment
Before the treatment begins, a comprehensive consultation is conducted by a practitioner. 

During this session, your skin type, quality, specific concerns, and desired outcomes will be assessed. This ensures more optimal results when performing the treatment.
To ensure your comfort throughout the procedure, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area. 

This cream is left on the skin for about 30 minutes to minimise any discomfort that might occur during the laser application.
The Fractional CO2 Laser works by delivering focused beams of laser energy in a scanning pattern across the skin. 

This creates microscopic zones of thermal injury that stimulate the natural healing process and promote new collagen production.

Fractional CO2 laser treatment is known for its efficacy and safety, but like any medical procedure, it carries some risks and potential side effects. Awareness and proper care can significantly mitigate these effects.

The most common side effects of Fractional CO2 laser treatment include:

  1. Mild Redness and Swelling
  2. Sensation Similar to Sunburn
  3. Flaking and Rough Texture

While these side effects are generally mild, they are part of the normal healing process. In rare cases, more serious side effects such as scarring, infection, or changes in skin texture may occur. To minimise the risk of side effects, it is crucial to seek treatment from a qualified and experienced practitioner.

Following proper post-treatment care is essential for optimal recovery and to enhance the results of your Fractional CO2 laser treatment. Below are some key guidelines:

  1. Gentle Skincare: Use gentle, non-irritating skincare products for at least 24 hours post-treatment to avoid exacerbating any skin sensitivity.
  2. Sun Protection: Protect the treated areas from UV exposure by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily. This helps prevent pigmentation changes as the skin heals.
  3. Hydration: Maintain skin hydration with suitable moisturizers, which aid in the recovery and regeneration processes.
  4. Follow-Up Appointments: Schedule and attend follow-up appointments as recommended by your practitioner. These appointments are vital to monitor your progress and determine the necessity of additional sessions to achieve the best results.
