FAQ

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.

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.

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 CO2RE is also effective for patients looking interested in a once-off treatment rejuvenation treatment rather than multiple less invasive skin rejuvenating treatments.

What To Expect From Your CO2 Fractional Laser Treatment

The benefits of CO2RE treatment includes a significantly smoother skin appearance, improved tone and texture, evening out wrinkles and reducing the severity of acne scarring. The procedure rarely lasts a little longer than 60 minutes, However, the downtime of between 7 – 10 days can expected, depending on your skin’s healing capacity.

Are There Any Risks Involved?

CO2RE treatments remove the upper layers of the skin resulting in a controlled “burn” wound of the face. Therefore, recovery time is of importance and it is essential to understand the risks. These include possible burns, scarring and pigment changes of the skin. All these complications are correctable, although the process needed to reverse pigmentary changes or pigmented scars may be complex. In patients with darker skin types, these risks are increased. Most of these risks can however be prevented with specialised pre and post-treatment medications which support healthy healing during the recovery process.

Herpes cold sore outbreaks are possible in those carrying the virus (please remember to inform us during our consultation should you have a history of cold sores). Any history of delayed wound healing or keloid formation is also important.

However, receiving this treatment by a trained professional with years of experience such as Dr Nerina Wilkinson, errors are significantly minimised. All of these risks will be discussed during your consultations.
