We all want to look our best!

A blemish-free, glowing and youthful-looking skin is what we all want. This is especially needed when we age. After all, our face is the first thing that people see, and it makes a huge difference in our social interactions and confidence level. Blemishes, wrinkles and acne scars affect the quality of our skin and hamper self-esteem.

Currently, there are many effective skincare treatments available which can reduce the signs of ageing and improve the skin texture. These treatments range from topical creams to invasive procedures which improve the skin condition. Laser treatment is especially getting popular these days due to its wide range of usage in cosmetic procedures. The laser technology has evolved a lot and has become more effective and sophisticated with the passing time.

Fractional CO2 Laser Technology

Laser technology can treat a variety of skin conditions. One of the most sophisticated laser options is fractional CO2 laser which uses skin revitalization laser technology. It is proved to have amazing anti-ageing results on the skin. It not only reduces the effects of ageing but also reverses the existing signs of it. Conditions, where Fractional CO2 treatment is effective, are:

1. Acne and other scars

2. Crows feet

3. Smokers lines

4. Wrinkles

5. Age spots

The above-mentioned skin conditions improve significantly just after one session of the treatment. The skin feels rejuvenated and smoother post-treatment.

How does Fractional CO2 Laser work?

Fractional CO2 laser treatment uses a pattern of carbon dioxide laser beams to treat the skin. The clinical practitioner will send the carbon dioxide beam into the skin. The beam forms the microscopic holes in the skin, allowing it to produce more collagen, which keeps the skin healthy and rejuvenated.

The procedure doesnt allow the laser energy to affect all the body parts at once. Instead, it affects a portion of skin, which increases the recovery time and therefore enhances the results. A person undergoing the treatment usually heals within 4-5 days.

Possible side-effects

The doctor doing the procedure will discuss the process with the patient first in order to reduce the likelihood of possible complications during the treatment. Although there are little to no risks involved in the procedure, following complications can arise:

1. Realistic expectations should be discussed prior to the treatment as sometimes even when the procedure is performed effectively, some patients may not feel satisfied as they had unrealistic expectations from the procedure.

2. Some patients who are very sensitive to the treatment may feel mild discomfort after the treatment.

3. During the procedure, there can also be little scarring like hypertrophic scars and keloid scars. It is important that the patient carefully follows the post-operative instructions to avoid the complication of scarring.

4. After the treatment, the skin can also develop the redness for about 2 weeks to 2 months. However, the redness in the very rare case takes more than 6 months to subside.

5. In laser, there is a very high risk of exposure to the eyes. So its important to wear the protective eyewear during the procedure.

It is vital to avoid any infection of the area as it may result in scarring. It is advisable to follow the pre and post-operative instructions carefully as it will increase the outcome significantly and help minimise any side-effects.

Frequently Asked Question (FAQ)

1. What does fractional CO2 laser do?
The fractional CO2 laser reverses the effects of ageing on the skin. The effects are skin tightening, filling of wrinkles and ageing lines, reducing the brown spots and improving the texture of the skin. In addition, it also reduces the appearance of large pores.
2. How many sessions are needed to get visible results?
Clients will experience improvement in just one sitting. As fractional laser covers 10-20% of the skin surface at a time; for scars and wrinkles, four to five treatment sessions will be needed. In most of the cases, only one treatment is needed for the improvement in freckles and age spots.
3. How long do the results last?
Results of the fractional CO2 laser treatment are permanent.
4. Where to get the laser procedure done from?
The fractional CO2 laser is done in a supervised setting under the guidance of an experienced and skilled clinical practitioner. ‘Designer Bodyz’ is a clinic founded by Dr. Parag Telang with an intention to offer easy accessibility to the skincare treatments of international standards.
5. Does the procedure hurt?
No, most of the patients experience the feeling of sunburn for two hours after the procedure is completed. Once the feeling subsides, there will be no pain.
6. Is the fraction CO2 laser effective on acne scars?
Yes, the fractional CO2 laser is very effective in treating the acne scars and providing smooth skin texture.
7. Is it safe for all types of skin?
Yes, the laser is safe for all types of skin.
8. Is the fractional laser helpful in treating the redness of the skin and the red spots?
Redness of the skin is caused by small blood vessels present on the surface of the skin called telangiectasia. The wavelength of the laser is not ideal for treating the redness. There are other types of lasers more effective in treating redness.
9. Are these treatments suitable for the eyelid area?
Special contact lenses are used on the eyes during the treatment so that no damage is done from the rays of the laser. These shields are inserted in the eye before starting the treatment. The clinical practitioners use ‘numbing eye drops’ before the insertion of a protective eye shield so that it can easily fit in the eye and then can be easily removed after the treatment. After the treatment it is normal to have slight redness and swelling which usually subside within 2-4 days. A patient should completely avoid sun exposure during the healing time.
10. When to avoid these laser treatments?
There are few conditions where laser treatments are not advisable including when a person is on certain medications which increase his photosensitivity like the use of certain medication, use of anticoagulants, poor bleeding history, disorders of blood, pregnancy and chemotherapy.
