How CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Works
A CO2 laser energy is emitted and absorbed by the water within the skin. The heat energy causes trauma to the surrounding tissue, damaging the existing collagen structure. The body’s immune system then detects these damaged collagen cells and stimulates fibroblast activity which results in the production and growth of new collagen.
Frequently Asked Questions on CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing:
We aim to answer all your questions before your treatment. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us or book a consultation to discuss your personalised treatment.
What will I experience during the treatment?
A topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the treatment area 30 minutes prior to your CO2 laser treatment to ensure the session is as comfortable as possible. The laser is then passed over the skin in a methodical pattern ensuring even coverage, to achieve skin resurfacing. Immediately after the treatment has been completed an SPF is applied to provide ultimate protection, and you should continue to apply this daily at home as part of your normal skincare routine.
How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the area size being treated, the treatment can take between 30 minutes and 1 hour. A topical anaesthetic cream will be applied 30 minutes prior to the procedure for added comfort.
Is there any downtime?
Immediately after the treatment the skin will appear red and can feel tight and warm. Full recovery time can take up to 4 weeks, including 2 weeks of recovery and 2 weeks of repair. It is very important to wear an SPF every single day throughout your treatment sessions and that this is then continued daily.
How many sessions are required?
A consultation with one of our aestheticians is required prior to a treatment booking, and your skin will be assessed before they are then able to advise as to how many sessions will be required for your desired results. Treatment sessions may be dependent on results from each treatment. Each treatment will be performed with a minimum gap of 4 weeks between. The skin can take up to 2 – 4 weeks to heal. On average, treatment for skin resurfacing, wrinkle removal and acne scarring require 3-5 sessions and scar removal requires an average of 4-6 sessions.
When will I see results?
Results can take up to 6 weeks to appear, however it is essential to have the full recommended number of sessions as advised during your consultation for optimum results.
