How does it work?
with the skin’s surface, causing the upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthy skin. The laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.
The Laser Resurfacing procedure works by applying CO2 laser energy in multiple, narrow, high-energy beams which smooths out fine lines, wrinkles and scars and removes dark spots and other irregularities, while leaving small islands of unaffected skin to ensure rapid healing. CO2 laser energy is ideal for this purpose because it penetrates deep into the dermis (the skin’s structural layer) eliminating damaged cells and stimulating growth of new collagen. This new collagen lifts and supports the epidermis (the skins surface) causing tightening and rejuvenation without scarring.
The approximate time for a full face treatment is 45 minutes. We do need the patient at the clinic an hour before hand for pre-treatment photos and application of topical local anaesthetic. Expect to be at Fraser Clinic for about 2 and a half hours. Occasionally repeat treatments to selected areas are often desirable to achieve optimal results. There must be at least 3 months between treatments to allow for collagen remodeling.
