CO2 laser treatment is one of the most innovative solutions for a wide range of cosmetic and dermatological skin conditions. It was initially used as an anti-aging solution to minimize the appearance and prominence of wrinkles and lines to achieve smoother skin. It is ideal for removing acne scars, too. One of the benefits of CO2 laser is the increased comfort during treatment. It is preferred for the minimal post-treatment maintenance and care, too. CO2 laser treatments ensure excellent results to rejuvenate the skin and correct the pigmentation caused by scarring from all kinds of acne.
The treatment works by creating deep and narrow columns of areas in treated tissue, which surrounds the untreated and healthy tissue. It encourages the natural healing process of the skin to create healthy and new tissue to replace the affected tissues, leading to the improvement of the skin condition. CO2 laser treatment is safe as it uses fractional ablative lasers to regrow damaged or missing tissue. This can be accomplished usually within a day. High-quality lasers help minimize the risk of infection, long-term changes in pigmentation, and further scarring.
CO2 laser treatment may require a few multiple sessions to complete, but you do not have to worry about downtime after each session. You can return to your daily activities almost immediately, especially if a fractional non-ablative laser was used. Fractional CO2 lasers are more effective in lightening the pigmentation than conventional lasers. They stimulate collagen production, too, and this is a crucial process to smooth the old scars.
It is important to seek CO2 laser treatments from a reputable and skilled dermatologist who is knowledgeable and certified in using special laser equipment. This way, you can be sure that the procedure is completely safe, harmless, and effective, with excellent results in the long run. The dermatologist can give advice and tips on how you can prevent further scarring and control your acne, too.
