Introduced in 2008, this treatment is an improvement over earlier ablative lasers, which tend to leave marked colouring differences between treated and untreated skin areas.
It is more intense than Non-Ablative Q-Switched ND:YAG Laser treatment which may yield more significant results.
Adults with mild to moderate wrinkles in specific facial areas such as around the eyes or mouth are considered good candidates for eco2 fractional laser resurfacing. Other candidates for this treatment include patients with scars from burns, surgery or acne, as well as those with sun-damaged skin, mottled skin, or skin pigmentation problems.
Skin resurfacing is a means of revitalising the damaged upper layers of skin by allowing the cells in its inner layers to regenerate. It works by progressively stimulating collagen production to enhance the regeneration of new skin cells, with the aim of attaining firmer, clearer and more youthful skin.
This treatment is used to deliver effective outcomes for a wide variety of beauty concerns.
During treatment consultation, provide our doctor with any pertinent information on your medical history, any previous and pre-existing medical conditions and drug allergies, as well as any medical treatments, medication and supplements you are currently taking or using.
A standard treatment is usually completed in less than 20 minutes.the procedure begins with the application of a topical anaesthetic to the area to be treated, to minimise any pain or discomfort.
Patients who have undergone eco2 fractional skin treatment have reported significant results often after a single treatment.
Within days of treatment, new skin takes the place of that in the older, damaged parts. The skin appears clearer, smoother and more supple than before. You will continue to see improvement in your skin’s texture and tone for up to nine months. With proper maintenance and follow-up treatments after 6 months, results can be longer lasting.
As only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated, downtime is kept to a minimum. Skin dryness and peeling are commonly experienced after treatment, but these symptoms will be resolved in about 3 to 5 days’ time. the skin colour and texture will then be visibly improved, discolouration will be eliminated and the skin will smoothen out.
During the healing process, you will notice some swelling and redness for a few days. Depending on the aggressiveness of treatment, the redness may last several weeks.
You will be given specific instructions on the proper maintenance of the treatment areas, and your doctor can suggest products to cover any redness so that you can quickly resume your normal daily activities.
