The CO2 laser is both fractional and ablative, meaning that whilst it removes diseased and dead skin cells to expose healthy, rejuvenated skin, downtime has been significantly reduced.
The CO2 fractional laser is used to resurface the skin, treating a wide range of indications. Fractional laser resurfacing can be adopted to treat anything from smaller indications like fine lines and wrinkles, to more intense concerns like burns and scars.
Dr Tapan has a special interest in fractional laser resurfacing and is highly-skilled at treating those with scars and patients of colour. Every member of our medical team at PHI Clinic is highly trained in performing the treatments we offer, training together and being taught by Dr Tapan himself.
There are three different settings on the laser: SCAAR FX, ACTIVE FX and TOTAL FX.
With an ablative laser, it is important to note that the device will be creating a controlled wound to help stimulate collagen production and plump up the skin. Therefore, patients who undergo this treatment may experience some redness, heat and flakiness a few weeks after treatment. The results achieved can be fantastic, though you should be aware that outcomes will vary between individuals.
A patient who had fractional laser around the eyes describes her experience:
“Due to the anaesthetic applied beforehand, the actual treatment wasn’t painful. It was only after the anaesthetic wore off that I felt a hot sensation in the treated area. Dr Tapan was very gentle with me and reassured me constantly, which was great. I had the area around my eyes resurfaced, which took a lot of skill. I would definitely recommend the treatment to anyone who feels their skin is showing the signs of ageing.” – Patient Testimonial
