The Carbon Dioxide Laser, often referred to as CO2 or Erbium laser, helps to clear the skin of unwanted wrinkles and fine lines as the result of sun damage. This minimally invasive laser treatment offers a rejuvenating skin approach available in two modes: fractional or ablative
In the fractional approach, only a portion of the skin is exposed to the laser treatment, benefiting from the assistance of adjacent healthy skin cells that expedite the healing process. This method boasts a swifter recovery and fewer side effects compared to alternative techniques, although multiple sessions may be necessary for optimal outcomes.
The ablative technique involves subjecting an entire skin section to the laser therapy. Although this process entails a more extended recovery period and necessitates fewer sessions, it harnesses intense thermal stimulation to elevate the production of collagen and elastin. This intricate mechanism serves to enhance the overall skin condition.
