Laser Fractional CO2

How does CO2 Fractional Laser treatment work?

The CO2 fractional laser is an advanced medical device that uses laser radiation with a wavelength in the near infrared range (around 10,600 nm) for dermatological and surgical procedures. It works by focusing and controlled laser radiation that is transmitted to the skin in a fractional way, which means that it is delivered in the form of microscopic columns of laser energy, leaving the areas of skin between them intact.

Only laser treatments allow you to achieve the effect of revitalization and rejuvenation. Laser treatments are also used to achieve a specific effect (improving skin elasticity, reducing wrinkles, improving skin tone, increasing skin tension, etc.) but also to slow down the aging process. Laser skin rejuvenation treatments stimulate the natural regenerative processes in the skin and provide natural results.

Here are the steps that take place during the operation of a CO2 fractional laser:

Patient preparation: Before the procedure begins, the patient is usually under local anesthesia to minimize pain and discomfort during the procedure. Some devices may also use cold air to cool the area of ​​skin being treated.

Ablation: The CO2 fractional laser generates highly concentrated beams of radiation that penetrate the skin. These microscopic laser columns remove a thin layer of skin (a process called ablation) where they are applied. Ablation causes controlled damage to the skin tissue, which stimulates the healing process.

Collagen boost: Damage caused by fractional CO2 lasers stimulates the skin to produce new collagen. Collagen is a structural protein present in the skin, which is responsible for its firmness and elasticity. This process leads to improved skin texture, smoothing and wrinkle reduction.

Limited treatment area: The CO2 fractional laser allows for precise definition of the treatment area, allowing for controlled removal of damaged skin and stimulating healing in specific areas. The remaining areas of the skin are left intact, which speeds up the healing process.

Healing: After treatment, the patient is usually advised to use special creams and take care of the skin to help the healing process. The skin may be red and swollen for a few days after treatment, but it should gradually return to its normal appearance within a few weeks.

Fractional CO2 laser is used to treat various skin problems such as post-operative scars, acne scars, wrinkles, skin discoloration and others. This is an effective method of improving skin quality, although it may require several treatment sessions to achieve the desired results. Before starting the procedure, it is worth consulting with an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon to determine whether it is appropriate for your case.


Who are laser skin rejuvenation treatments for?

Virtually every patient qualifies for this type of treatment. At Tooting Clapham Clinics, we individually select treatments to suit the patient’s needs. Lasers can be used to perform a wide variety of treatments – from preventing skin aging in young people to laser removal of wrinkles, scars and face lifting treatments.

For what indications do we use fractional laser treatment?

CO2 fractional laser treatment is used for various dermatological and aesthetic indications.

Here are some of the main indications for which you might consider this type of surgery:

Wrinkles: Fractional CO2 laser is often used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face, neck and décolletage. It improves skin elasticity and stimulates collagen production, which leads to smoothing and firming of the skin.

Scars: This type of laser is effective in reducing various types of scars, including surgical scars, acne scars, cut scars, and more. Fractional CO2 laser helps soften and smooth scars, improving their appearance.

Discoloration: This treatment can help reduce skin discoloration such as age spots, lentigines, and other pigmentation irregularities.

Acne and rosacea: Fractional CO2 laser can be used to treat acne and rosacea by reducing skin inflammation and improving skin texture.

Warts and mole removal: The CO2 fractional laser can be used to precisely remove certain types of warts, moles, spots and other skin lesions.

Skin rejuvenation: For overall skin rejuvenation, fractional CO2 laser treatment can be performed to improve skin texture, firmness and tone.

Stretch scars: This laser can be used to reduce stretch scars that often appear on the skin as a result of rapid weight gain, such as during pregnancy.

Seborroic keratoses: CO2 fractional laser can be used to remove certain skin lesions such as seborroic keratoses.

Skin resurfacing: In some cases, this treatment is used to overall rejuvenate and improve the quality of the skin, especially in the areas of the face, neck, décolletage and hands.

Who is an internist and when should you see one?

An internist is a so-called primary care physician, as patients with initial symptoms of illness most often go to them. We visit them for general preventive care, diagnostics, and treatment of internal organ diseases.

As the first point of contact, the internist diagnoses the patient’s problem and provides further recommendations, issues referrals for diagnostics and necessary tests, and prescribes medications.

The internist possesses comprehensive knowledge about the human body, which allows them to make initial and often accurate diagnoses. Of course, further diagnostics require additional tests, which the internist orders, but they are responsible for correctly guiding the patient with their ailments. It’s also worth noting that internists only treat adults.
