FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER RESURFACING – SCARS AND STRIAE
Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure, during which the surface skin layers are evaporated in micro-spots, while the islands of the undamaged skin, from which the healing and epithelialisation process commences after the procedure, are preserved. During the procedure, the CO2 beam at the same time penetrates deeper into the dermis – corium – skin and thermally damages collagen and elastin fibres, whereby it activates the reparation process and stimulates the new formation of collagen and elastin fibres for 3-5 months after the procedure. After a couple of days following the surgery, the skin is renewed and gradually lifted, while the maximum effect occurs after 5 months. The treatment is suitable for correction of scars and striae, acne scars, skin pigmentation and surface defects, reduction of enlarged pores, from which the name “resurfacing” – surface renewal is also derived. Depending on the setting intensity, light, medium or deep fractional resurfacing can be chosen.
- The procedure is minimally painful, preceded by the application of an anaesthetic cream.
- It is recommended to undergo the LED therapy after the procedure to increase the effect and support healing after the surgery.
- Redness and swelling of the treated region will disappear gradually, within 1-5 days, with gradual skin healing, scaling, which requires convalescence for 3-5 day.
- The procedure can be performed during the non-sunny period, while it is recommended not to expose the treated region one month before and one month after the surgery to UV radiation and to use strict SPF 50+ photoprotection after the surgery.
