The laser delivers light that creates many tiny holes in the surface of the skin. The laser only targets a small Portion of the skin leaving most of the skin intact. The untreated healthy skin that surrounds the vaporised tissue stimulates accelerated collagen product and promotes skin healing.

It is a skincare process that requires lasers to aid in refining skin texture and overall appearance.

On the basis of your specific requirements, your dermatologist will suggest either ablative or non-ablative lasers. Ablative lasers consist of carbon dioxide (CO2) and Erbium. CO2 laser resurfacing treatments are performed to remove scars, warts, and deep wrinkles. Erbium, on the other hand, is performed to remove finer lines and wrinkles. Ablative lasers are known to eliminate the outer layer of the skin.

Acne scar types

  • Boxcar scar
  • ice pick scar
  • rolling scar
  • tethered scar
  • anchored scar
  • hypertrophic scar
  • macular scar
  • Keloid scar

This is conducted through tangential lighting which shows the top and bottom of the acne scars.

CO2 ACNE SCARS LASER TREATMENT is known to be the best solution for rolling scars and larger boxcar scars.

What skin conditions can CO2 laser help?
The CO2 laser is suitable for both men and women and can improve the appearance of the skin by:

  • Significantly reducing lines and wrinkles
  • Tightening and firming the skin
  • Stimulating new collagen production
  • Correcting sun damaged skin
  • Producing an even skin tone
  • Improving the appearance of acne scars

How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required is dependent upon the depth of treatment. A Deep Laser Peel delivers the greatest improvement for lines and wrinkles; skin elasticity and acne scars require the fewest treatments. However, the downtime post treatment is longer. Typically, only 1-2 sessions are required with repeat treatment at six months for further improvement. A Soft Laser Peel does not have such a long downtime but repeat sessions are more likely. Usually, 2-3 sessions are required at 3-4 monthly intervals.

How long does treatment take?
It takes about 30 minutes to treat the full face. However, some pre and post treatment care is required, and you will need to be at the clinic for about 2 hours.

What should I expect after the treatment?
After your CO2 treatment you need to be prepared for some downtime. Immediately after the procedure your skin will be red, and you are likely to feel as though you have bad sunburn. It is also normal to experience swelling, particularly around the eyes. Swelling is present for 24-48 hours post treatment.

For the first few days following treatment your skin will form a ‘micro-crust’ and have a bronzed appearance. The skin will also feel quite tight, and it is important that your skin does not dry out (using Vaseline will help to avoid this). The length of downtime will vary depending upon the density and depth of the treatment. This could be between 4 – 14 days. We will carefully discuss your treatment goals and expected downtime during a consultation.

When will results be visible?
You will notice benefits within 7 days of treatment. Some erythema (redness) may remain, but the skin will be visibly improved. The laser stimulates production of collagen so you will experience progressive benefits for at least six months post treatment. The new collagen will promote skin tightening and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

What should I do if I am concerned?
We will schedule a follow up appointment 2-3 days after your treatment. However, should you have any concerns prior to your allotted date please do not hesitate to contact the clinic.
