WHAT IS CO2 FRACTIONAL LASER?

The CO2 laser emits light of 10,600 nanometers, which focuses on the moisture in the skin. By giving off the impulse, energy of the CO2 laser is generated. This allows the moisture in the skin to evaporate and also creates corridors in the form of a grid. This advanced “resurfacing” technique ensures that no thermal damage occurs. The healthy tissue surrounding these spaces ensures that the renewal process begins.

The laser beam of the CO2 laser penetrates deep into the dermis, or dermis. This activates the fibroblasts, stimulating the production of new collagen. The healthy tissue is so strong that it helps to restore the damaged part and firmness.

The technique has improved over the years. Where previously the entire epidermis was burned away, the skin is now only a fraction affected. The result is beautiful, smooth and radiant skin!

 

The CO2 laser is actively used to reduce wrinkles, tighten and smooth the skin and reduce pores. The CO2 laser provides radiant, younger and fresh skin, without using invasive methods. The skin becomes more resilient and fuller. The skin becomes tighter, imperfections are repaired, making the skin surface smoother and more even.

WHAT HAPPENS TO MY SKIN AFTER CO2 TREATMENT?

  • The skin will recover and renew itself, new collagen has been created and the skin will become tighter, smoother and firmer

  • Reduction of wrinkles

  • The skin becomes healthier and therefore more resilient

  • Stimulating blood flow

HOW WILL MY SKIN LOOK AFTER THE TREATMENT?

  • After the treatment you will first be red and within 1 day the crust will form. The first 24 hours should not be lubricated, so that the crust formation takes place properly. These crusts and any scaling will fall off on their own.

AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • It is very important that you do not scratch the skin during the process.

  • Fractional laser recovery time is 1-2 weeks. 

  • Do not use make-up for the first 48 hours (preferably during the entire recovery period).

  • When undergoing a CO2 laser treatment, you are not allowed to go in the sun or under a tanning bed for at least 6 to 8 weeks before and after the treatment. 

  • Protect your skin well with at least SPF 30, in sun and rain.

  • Smoking slows down the healing process

  • During the recovery time, avoid: sauna, hot baths and sweating (sports).
