Fractional CO2 laser is a modern method to treat a range of conditions on the skin by removing only a fraction of the skin leaving islands of normal skin which aid in wound healing of the treated areas. Conditions which can be treated using this laser technology include:
Excess eyelid skin
Deep lines around the mouth
When the skin heals, new collagen is formed and patients will see an improvement in skin texture, depth of scars, pigmentation and wrinkles. The downtime for this procedure is 5-7 days where the skin heals and sun exposure is to be avoided during this time.
The clinic uses the SLIM E30Mixto SX Micro Fractional CO2 laser system.
