Benefits of Fractional CO2 Laser in Singapore

One of the many benefits of Fractional CO2 Laser is that it can help to improve the appearance of scars. Scars that are left by acne can be improved by Fractional CO2 Laser to make them less visible. Aside from scars, Fractional CO2 Laser can also help to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This laser can help to stimulate the production of collagen, which can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

In addition, Fractional CO2 Laser can also help to improve the appearance of dark spots. Dark spots are often the result of sun damage or ageing. Fractional CO2 lasers can help to lighten these spots, making them less noticeable.

How does Fractional CO2 Laser work?

Fractional CO2 Laser works by emitting thousands of tiny micro-thermal zones in the target areas, penetrating into deep skin layers to create numerous microscopic thermal injury zones.

The tiny areas of “controlled damage” triggers your body’s natural healing process and stimulates new collagen production and renewal of skin cells. Fractional CO2 Laser treatment targets sunken scars and old collagen to rejuvenate ageing skin.

Unlike traditional ablative lasers, Fractional CO2 Laser treatment provides results with lesser downtime and side effects.

How is Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment Performed?

Before your Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment, a local anaesthetic cream is applied to the area for around 30 minutes. This cream will numb the treatment area, making patients much more comfortable.

Fractional CO2 Laser treatment lasts from 10 to 15 minutes, so expect a simple, quick procedure. The Fractional CO2 Laser delivers laser energy that is shot through a scanned pattern that penetrate deep into the skin. This can boost your body’s natural healing ability and collagen production for replacing damaged, old skin cells with healthy, new skin.

Depending on how severe your scarring is, the setting of the laser will be adjusted accordingly. You may experience redness, crusting, dryness or peeling in the treated areas, similar to being sunburnt during the recovery period. you may feel a pricking sensation during the procedure. After the treatment, your skin will be slightly red and warm.

After your skin has healed, you will see an improvement in your overall skin tone and texture. Your skin will continuously produce collagen to improve the sunken scars and wrinkles over the next 1-2 months.
