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.

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.
