Fractional Co2 Laser

What is CO2 laser?

The carbon dioxide laser produces a specific wavelength of light in the mid-infrared spectrum (10600 nm). Hence, this allows its laser energy to be well absorbed in water. In fact, CO2 lasers are ideal for safe and precise ablation for certain kinds of skin concerns such as milia removal , acne scar treatment and removal of warts ,etc.

What are the benefits of CO2 laser:

Let’s check the benefits of CO2 laser for skin treatment.

  • Higher precision
  • Tissue selectivity
  • Lower costs
  • Versatility

The laser beam penetrates the superficial layers of skin, reaching the dermis. As a result, they create tiny microscopic areas of thermal damage, stimulating cell turnover and inducing new collagen production. Therefore, they help replace damaged skin with new cells. The carbon dioxide laser is a versatile laser used to treat various cutaneous lesions. It is unique since it can be used for resurfacing as well as excisional and incisional procedures. The procedure where we can use CO2 laser are:

  • Resurfacing of fine lines, wrinkles,  enlarged oil glands on the nose.
  • Raised birthmarks
  • Moles
  • Acne scarring
  • Skin aging
  • Keloid and hypertrophic scars
  • Warts
