Fractional laser CO2
CO2 fractional laser therapy is one of the methods used for non-surgical removal of wrinkles, furrows and improvement of facial contour. This is one of the latest achievement of laser technology used in aesthetic medicine. It results in significantly improved skin condition related to its complete reconstruction.
Lifting performed with CO2 fractional laser causes heating of deep layers of the skin without evaporation of the tissues. By increasing the amount of collagen and elastin in the skin, it enhances its blood circulation greatly improving its structure.
The laser beam does not cover the entire surface of the skin subjected to treatment but only its part in the form of points. In those points, deep openings are created through which the laser light penetrates the skin. The laser beam reaches the dermis cells and even the subcutaneous tissue. Despite such deep intervention, the area covered by the treatment remains virtually intact. Between those points, there is a significant amount of healthy tissue which triggers natural reproductive and regenerative processes.
Skin rebuilding will be clearly visible after 4-5 weeks after completed series of 3-5 procedures. Reconstruction of collagen will however continue leading to smoothing and firming of the skin for 6-12 months after the procedure.
Laser impulses penetrate the skin at appropriate depth so that they will not cause burns but effectively stimulate dermis to regeneration.
