Frequently Asked Questions

How Does CO2 Fractional Laser Work?

CO²RE® is a versatile fractional CO² laser system that enables Dr Wilkinson to precisely target and effectively treat the skin’s surface, middle, and deep dermal levels. Essentially, the upper layers of the skin are vaporised, removing the superficial skin layers. This direct photothermal effect therefore removes the dull upper layers of the skin and stimulates new collagen.

CO²RE® gives her the ability to treat both superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously with precision-control over the intensity, pattern and depth of ablation. The CO²RE®  features dual laser waves that can be adjusted to penetrate the skin at both superficial and deep levels simultaneously in addition to performing traditional CO2 resurfacing. The treatment is lighter, faster and offers more versatility for skin resurfacing when compared to traditional ablation.

Which CO2 Laser Device Does Dr Nerina Wilkinson Use?

Dr Nerina Wilkinson uses the CO²RE® device – a versatile fractional CO² laser system that enables Dr Wilkinson to precisely target and effectively treat the skin’s surface, middle, and deep dermal levels. CO²RE® gives her the ability to treat both superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously with precision-control over the intensity, pattern and depth of ablation.

Who Will Benefit From CO2 Fractional Laser?

This treatment is ideal for those who feel they are looking tired. From fine lines to crow’s feet and irregular pigmentation due to age spots or even old acne scars, it’s the preferred solution for people wanting to slow down the ageing process and rejuvenate the skin.

What Results Can I Expect From CO2 Fractional Laser?

You will see gradual improvement in the appearance of your skin immediately after the skin has peeled (usually after 3 – 5 days) and continue to see improvements thereafter. During the procedure, we can immediately see the skin contract and shrink. You will continue to see improved results for up to six months with the new collagen regeneration that “plumps” up the skin. The results are permanent.

CO2 Fractional Laser has been clinically proven to improve the following in just one session:

  • Skin Tone and Texture 
  • Sun-damaged Skin
  • Age Spots & Pigmentation 
  • Fine Lines & Wrinkles 
  • Skin Laxity 
  • Acne Scarring 
  • Size of Pores

How Many CO2 Laser Treatments Do I Need To See Results?

The results after just one CO2 fractional laser treatment are permanent.

In most cases only one, but for deep wrinkles and acne scarring two or more treatments may be necessary. The interval between treatments should be a minimum of 3 months.

What Is The Downtime For CO2 Fractional Laser?

It is a fairly severe procedure requiring 7 days downtime post-procedure. Those with advanced sun damage would significantly benefit from this treatment, however, the CO2 Laser Procedure is also effective for patients looking interested in a once-off treatment rejuvenation treatment rather than multiple less invasive skin rejuvenating treatments.

How Do I Know If CO2 Fractional Laser Is The Best Option For Me?

Always start with a professional consultation with qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeon for an in-depth analysis of your facial features and to reach a good understanding of your skincare concerns and goals.

Dr Nerina Wilkinson’s unique and comprehensive surgical consultation is available for you to discuss and analyse your concerns and goals and for her (together with her team of specialists) to provide bespoke advice.
