Benefits of the Conventional CO2 laser

The conventional CO2 laser excels at perfect material cutting and creating while also being highly efficient in medical treatments due to its ability to reduce tissue damage and provide precision control.

  • Higher precision
  • Targeting specific tissue
  • Versatility
  • Least invasive
  • Short recovery

Types of Co2 laser:

In fact, the Conventional Carbon Dioxide laser is a broad and versatile laser. It is useful to treat various types of skin conditions.

Moreover, it is a unique type of laser. This is because it can be used for resurfacing as well as excisional and incisional procedures.

For instance:

  • Fine lines as well as wrinkles
  • Warts
  • Raised birthmarks
  • Moles
  • Acne scarring

CO2 Laser Treatment Limitations

However, there are certain cases, when the Conventional Carbon Dioxide laser isn’t a good option. For instance:

  • In case of a history of keloids or hypertrophic scars
  • When the patient took retinoids in the previous six months
  • Recent use of dermabrasion or chemical peels treatment
  • Active bacterial or viral infection at the treatment site
  • Connective tissue diseases
  • Lastly, HIV or hepatitis C infections

How Does the Procedure Work?

The laser beam penetrates the superficial layers of the skin. As a result, it reaches the dermis.

As a result, tiny microscopic areas of thermal damage occur.

This, in turn, stimulates cell turnover and new collagen production.

Therefore, it helps replace damaged skin with new cells.

The procedure entails:

  • Cleaning the treatment area.
  • Applying a local anaesthetic to it.
  • Treating each skin lesion individually with the laser.
  • Lastly, bandaging the treated area.

The procedure takes about 30-60 minutes.

Pre and Post-procedure Care

  • Stop smoking for two weeks before and after the procedure.
  • In fact, certain medications like aspirin, ibuprofen, as well as vitamin E need to be discontinued ten days prior.
  • Patients may take antibiotics and antiviral medications before as well as after the procedure.
  • Moreover, the treated area should be clean.
  • Dermatologists prescribe an ointment to prevent scab formation.
  • Putting ice on the areas with swelling, itching or stinging helps.
  • Also, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen.

Side Effects

  1. Contact dermatitis
  2. Perioral dermatitis
  3. Rosacea
  4. Acne
  5. Localized infection
  6. Hypertrophic scarring

The side effects depend on the:

  • Skin condition
  • Skin type & sensitivity
  • The immune response of the patient.

However, one can minimize them with pre and post-procedure care routines.
