Fractional CO2 laser (laser skin resurfacing)
The CO₂ laser has been used successfully for two decades and is considered the gold standard for skin resurfacing. A groundbreaking development in the last ten years is so-called “fractional lasering”. . In this method, the skin is evenly treated with thousands of tiny holes using a computer-controlled laser scanner. Untreated skin bridges remain between these holes, from which rapid healing can take place. As a result, “fractional lasing” is less painful, healing times are shorter and side effects are fewer compared to traditional laser procedures. Nevertheless, the laser energy penetrates deep into the top layer of the skin (epidermis) to stimulate the production of collagen and cause skin tightening.
Visible improvements in the appearance of the skin can already be seen after the first treatment. The rejuvenating effect of Fraxel treatment improves from month to month, making this wrinkle treatment effective in the long term. Practice patience and give your skin enough time to regenerate and show the desired changes.
Treatment of wrinkles with fractional CO₂ laser leads to natural tightening of face, décolleté or neck and causes disappearance of pigment spots. Your skin texture becomes even, it looks rosy, fresh and firm again. The skin rejuvenation by the fractional CO₂ laser is so natural that it is rarely noticed by others.
Particularly impressive results are achieved with skin rejuvenation around the eye area and mouth. In the case of deeper upper lip wrinkles, pronounced cheek wrinkles or severe acne scars, it may be necessary to perform the treatment a second time.
The treatment in our practice is performed under local anesthesia by an anesthetic ointment, which is applied about 30 – 40 min beforehand to make the procedure almost painless. In addition, your skin is desensitized by cold air.
After the treatment, the skin is slightly red and swollen. In the following days, small crusts form, which gradually fall off. After about 10 days, the micro-injuries will have healed and the crusts will have fallen off completely, allowing you to resume all everyday activities.
To ensure optimal healing and regeneration of your skin, it is important to keep a few things in mind.
- Protection from the sun’s rays
- Avoid aggressive skin care products
- Do not peel off crusts and scales
- Moisturizing creams
- Avoid intense physical activities
