Perfect to remove perioral wrinkles (those surronding the lips), periorbital wrinkles (those surronding the eyes), acne scars, skin neoformations and benigne skin tumours like basal-cell carcinoma. This laser is based on a very advanced technology which allows "full-face resurfacing" for patients affected by medium-to-severe face-skin ageing.
WHAT IS FRACTIONAL LASER
Fractional laser determines a number of micro-holes in the area of skin being treated. This makes it possibile, on the one hand, to go in depth stimulating the production of new collagen and, on the other, to operate on healthy skin portions which will allow a quicker resurfacing process. This type of laser does not remove skin in its entire thickness but just some portions, in order to guarantee a quicker recovery, a less invasive procedure and a better result.
NUMBER OF TREATMENTS
Excellent results can be seen 2-3 weeks after a single treatment, with a gradual skin-texture improvement in the 3 months following the laser session. A new treatment can be carried out not before 3 months.
How long does the treatment take and how does the skin look like immediately after?
Fratcional CO2 laser treatment is carried out at our facility, takes 30 minutes and requires a light anaesthesia with anaesthetic creams. Following the treatment, a diffused redness in the treated area will show up, which will need to be hydrated with moisturizing creams and cortisone. Most importantly, sunscreen is strictly required for a long period after the treatment, avoiding exposure to UV rays, both from the sun and from tanning lamps or beds.
