Cosmetic procedures in recent decades have gone through drastic improvements. Much of what was thought to be impossible in yesteryear is now an everyday practice. The arrival of laser technologies has played a big role in this amazing journey of success.

Many are hailing Fractional CO2 Treatment as the best skin treatment of the decade. It has many uses including but not limited to treating wrinkles on the face, skin laxity, acne scars, tattoos removal, and superficial pigmentation, sun damage, and facial blemishes. Let’s have a closer look at the Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing.

Why should a person get fractional CO2 laser treatment?

It is a question that comes to mind when the treatment is mentioned. The answer to this question is quite simple. It helps a person look younger by correcting a host of skin-related issues as mentioned above. The effects of this treatment can last between eight to ten years which is quite amazing. By getting a single treatment, you can simply turn back the clock on your appearance by several years and that is something.

How does it work?

It works with the help of CO2 lasers which are known to be extremely effective for skin resurfacing. It uses an improved technique in order to cut down on the harshness that was previously associated with the treatment.

Collagen, the protein that helps the skin in remaining plump and healthy is badly affected due to exposure to pollution and sunlight over the years. Small holes are made by lasers that help the increased production of collagen. It causes minimum damage to the top layer of the skin, thus cutting down on the recovery time needed and giving excellent results.

Ideal Candidates

People with wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes and mouth as well as those having fine lines of the face, are ideal candidates. Those with scars that are not too deep, whether caused by acne or otherwise, can also make good use of the treatment.

Generally, people with darker skin tones may not be able to reap a lot of benefits from this treatment. It is also advised that those with active acne should not undergo fractional CO2 laser treatment.

Side Effects

The side effects are mild including redness and swelling of the skin that last about two days in most cases. The use of icepacks can be a big help in controlling these temporary side effects. Rest after the procedure is recommended. Fortunately, the downtime is almost non-existent unlike the more traditional co2 treatment meant weeks of downtime after a single session.
