CO2 laser scar reduction is a cosmetic procedure designed to minimise the appearance of scars on the skin’s surface. Utilising advanced CO2 laser technology, this treatment works by precisely targeting the scar tissue and gently resurfacing the skin. The high-intensity laser energy stimulates collagen production and promotes the growth of healthier skin cells, resulting in a smoother, more even skin texture. This procedure is commonly used to address a range of scars, such as acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks. CO2 laser scar reduction offers individuals a non-invasive option to achieve improved skin tone and texture, helping patients to restore their confidence and enjoy a more radiant complexion.

  • 10600 nm wavelength technology
  • Numbing cream is recommended for optimal client comfort
  • Fractional laser delivery for minimal downtime
  • It can be used on most skin types
  • It can treat scarring, lines and wrinkles, sun damage and stretch marks.
  • Precision application
  • Results visible from 7 days post-treatment and continue to improve throughout treatments

The 1060nm fractional CO2 laser energy is applied to the skin; it creates longitudinal microthermal zones, penetrating approximately 2mm in depth through the dermis.

This thermal damage creates trauma to the existing cells in the skin. The space between the columns of the intact epidermis allows the skin to trigger a faster healing response of the damaged tissue achieving better results with less downtime.

The objective of CO2 laser resurfacing is to accurately ablate the epidermis while applying a controlled amount of heat to the dermis to induce collagen remodelling.

After each pulse, the tissue is allowed to cool before the next pulse is delivered. This prevents unwanted heat conduction to adjacent areas that would result in scarring.

This treatment improves the skin’s texture, reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles and smooths out unwanted scarring and surface imperfections.
The CO2 laser emits high-energy light that is absorbed by water molecules in the skin, causing controlled damage to the targeted areas. This prompts the body’s natural healing response, leading to the growth of new, smoother skin cells and a reduction in scar appearance.
The treatment area will be cleansed, and a numbing cream might be applied. The CO2 laser is then carefully applied to the scarred area. The procedure might cause some tingling or heat sensation, but it’s generally well-tolerated.
Common side effects include redness, swelling, and peeling of the treated area. In some cases, temporary changes in skin pigmentation might occur, but they usually fade over time.
The number of sessions required varies based on the severity of the scars and the desired results. Some people may see improvement after a single session, while others might need multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart.
