CO2 laser, also known as Carbon Dioxide laser, is a procedure used to treat skin abnormalities such as acne scars and wrinkles. This procedure is often used in skin resurfacing. The CO2 laser’s effects are comparable to those of dermabrasion and chemical peels. We offer the best Fractional Co2 Laser Treatment in Mumbai.
The main difference between CO2 laser and chemical peels and dermabrasion is that it eliminates skin layers by vaporization rather than using chemicals or an instrument as do chemical peels and dermabrasion.
Short, intense laser pulsing beams are directed towards uneven skin, eliminating it layer by layer.
Individuals with wrinkles around their eyes or on their forehead benefit from laser skin resurfacing. Furthermore, if you have tried various wrinkle elimination procedures and they have failed, you should consider laser resurfacing.
Exception: People with dark skin, stretch marks, or active acne are also advised not to undergo the laser resurfacing procedure.
The CO2 laser can be used to treat
CO2 laser treatment may be used to enhance skin texture, wrinkles, and blotchiness on the arms and legs, as well as the neck and chest. It may also be used on sensitive regions such as the skin on the eyelids and around the lips.
CO2 laser treatment is an outpatient process that might take 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the region to be treated. Local anaesthetic is used to numb the regions to be treated in small areas. The quantity of laser energy that must be employed on the skin’s surface, as well as the depth of penetration, are determined by the dermatologist.
The newly developed RF-Excited CO2 fractional laser fires laser beam through RF CO2 tube which is split into numbers of microscopic beams, producing a tinier dot compared to general CO2 laser (glass tube). The treatment tip can vaporize the outermost layers of the skin across a large surface by creating thousands of tiny, microscopic laser wounds, spaced in an even pattern across the skin, but leaving areas of healthy, untreated skin between them.
The lower collagen layer of the dermis is stimulated to renew and repair. Therefore, the heat of the laser only passes deeply through the factional damaged area, the surface of skin now contains only microscopic surface wounds, instead of a large, red, oozing burn. During the skin self-resurfacing, a great amount of collagen is produced for skin rejuvenation,after some recovery, the newly-generated skin is remarkably smoother and healthier.
Skin exfoliation necessitates the formation of new skin from the deeper layers.
Some redness and leaking of the skin might be anticipated during the first two weeks.
During the first 7 to 10 days, an ointment is administered to keep the skin moist.
During the first two weeks, patients must avoid applying make-up. For many weeks after surgery, the skin may continue to display indications of pinkness or redness. During the second week, dermatologists will assist you in preparing the skin for treatment as well as applying camouflage. Swelling may sometimes develop, although it should subside after a few weeks. Sun exposure should be avoided for the first six weeks after treatment since the skin heals extremely effectively over time.
