Fractional CO2 treatment is more or less known as anti aging treatment because of its ability to remove or at least reduce fine lines and wrinkles from your skin. These treatments use gold standard carbon dioxide laser in a fractionated manner to accomplish this. Carefully projecting beam of laser onto the area under treatment speeds up the collagen production in skin tissues. This collagen keeps skin looking young, fresh and wrinkle free.
Skin conditions fractional CO2 laser can treat:
Fractional CO2 Laser can cure a wide range of skin issues and can be used on facial as well as non-facial areas. Commonly treated cosmetic problems include:
- Photo damage
- Acne scars
- Skin discoloration
It improves overall skin texture and gives your skin a smooth and crease free appearance.
Fractional Co2 treatment cost:
Cost of this highly effective anti aging treatment depends upon multiple factors like area under treatment, problem to be addressed, and severity of the problem. Sometimes, Fractional CO2 treatment is used in combination with other skin care treatments to completely address the issue. In this case cost of treatment may be higher than the cost of fractional CO2 treatment alone. You must visit your dermatologist and briefly discuss your issues to have a fair idea of the cost of anti aging treatment in Dubai.
What makes fractional CO2 laser procedure good treatment?
Fractional Co2 laser is a modern procedure and it allows to overcome some of the disadvantages of the traditional carbon dioxide lasers. Being a fractional procedure, it divides laser beam into many fractions. This fractionated beam of laser creates microscopic holes in columns of skin while leaving other columns intact. These holes help in speeding up the healing process and collagen production. Moreover, fractionated laser does not penetrate deep into the skin so, it also ensures quick recovery.
Is it a painful treatment?
Objectively speaking, you cannot answer this question with a yes or no. Everyone has a different pain threshold and which is considered by one person as painful may not be that painful and discomforting for the other. However, dermatologists use topical anesthesia to numb the treatment site and make the procedure virtually painless.
Are there any potential side effects?
Fractional CO2 treatment is comparatively safe and since it does not involve an invasive surgery, you can easily categorize it as one of the safest skin rejuvenation treatments. Redness, swelling and crusting are some common side effects which last for a few days. Laser can worsen an old cold sore so, it is necessary to inform your dermatologist if you have any history of cold sores. Rare side effects include scarring and skin discoloration.
Who is a candidate?
People with lighter skin tone are more suitable candidates for a laser procedure because generally they do not experience issues like skin pigmentation and acne breakout after the procedure. People with darker skin tone are at a greater risk of developing the aforementioned side effects.
How can I minimize the risk of side effects?
You can easily avoid most of the side effects if you
- Choose your dermatologist carefully.
