Fractional C02 Laser is the most widely used in terms of scar or non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments. It is safe, effective and only the problem area is treated, leaving healthy skin untouched. Ideal for certain types of acne scarring from moderate to severe. This type of treatment is being used in dermatology for many, many years now and remains the best option if done correctly by a certified dermatologist.
How does Fractional C02 Laser treat acne scars?
The laser device makes microscopic holes in the problem area up to the deeper layer of the skin. As the body heals, it creates new and healthy tissues to replace the ones that had gone through the treatment.
Is it safe?
It is safe for all skin types, even for those with a dark complexion. But if you are photosensitive, using medications, pregnant, undergoing chemotherapy or has difficulty in healing or bleeding disorders, you need to tell your doctor.
Is there any downtime?
As each patient has different scar type, skin type, and scar depth, recovery time will vary considerably but usually 5-7 days. The dermatologist will assess the condition and will discuss the possible downtime.
Any side effects?
If a licensed dermatologist performs this treatment, complications will be avoided. Side effects may vary for each patient.
- Some might feel a little pain or none at all.
- Pink skin or redness may occur and may last for weeks.
- Superficial wound is inevitable and will heal in a few days.
- Swelling will occur but will go away in a few days.
- Infection will only occur if not treated promptly and could result in new scars. So, make sure to follow the doctor's orders.
What will be the expected result?
The patient will have no visible deep wounds, the skin texture will be lighter as well as the scars after several treatments depending on the skin's response. The dermatologist might suggest following acne maintenance treatments or regular acne facials plus a skincare routine done at home.
How many treatments needed?
