Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing has been called one of the newest anti-aging breakthroughs, and it’s not hard to see why.
The modern version of what is a long-tested laser technology will erase the unwanted lines or wrinkles that can emerge around our mouth or eyes. It can also help those who suffer from small and shallow acne scars, or whose skin does not respond properly to a facelift.
CO2 laser resurfacing (also known as carbon dioxide laser treatment) has been around for some time, and has been deployed for different skin-care treatment uses. These have included erasing warts, scars and enlarged oil glands that can sometimes appear on our noses.
But advances in the technology have given us an even better version of this treatment, called fractional CO2 resurfacing.
This amazing new treatment deploys two specific techniques to erase unwanted blemishes and rejuvenate our face, making it appear younger than what our age reflects.
One uses what’s called ultrapulse light energy, which is a fancy term for very brief pulses of light, while the other uses a continuous beam of light that is delivered with exact precision to the problematic skin areas.
The results from these latest CO2 treatments speak for themselves! They wipe away the thin layers of affected skin using a very low amount of heat. This makes them effective in treating not just fine lines, wrinkles and acne, but also even out skin tone and reduce unsightly blotchiness. It can also eliminate some kinds of skin tumours, although this happens in rare cases.
The precision is one of the biggest benefits from the cutting-edge fractional CO2 treatment. Unlike earlier versions of laser skin-care procedures, fractional CO2 uses very small amounts of laser energy targeted at the exact problem area – while earlier such procedures removed a much bigger skin area.
