For among the most dramatic results in skin treatment, Fractional CO2 is one my favourite treatment option for patients whom are suffering from either dull, lax or photodamage skin and acne scars. Fractional CO2 is an ablative treatment where it involves burning the skin surface with small dotes that will eventually lead to collagen remodelling within the skin dermis layer. Due to this issue, expect downtime (recovery period) of approximately 1 week post treatment before you can appreciate the result. There will be redness and scabs formation one day after treatment and this will last throughout the healing process however once this period is over you'll notice marked improvement in the skin texture and appearance and you will be impressed with the result. The treatment should be repeated every 3-6 months depending on the condition treatment to achieve the optimum result.

Fractional CO2 Laser penetrates deeper layer of your skin, optimizes collagen remodelling while reclaiming your skin elasticity, thus it improves your acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles. You will begin to notice subtle difference in your skin during your first treatment; however the results get better and better with ever treatment. The treatment is an accumulative result, the more treatments you do the better your results will be.

Fractional CO2 Laser is recommended for:

• Acne scars


• Skin Resurfacing


• Freckles

Freckles are small spots found on the skin that are generally tan in color. They are most commonly found on people with fair complexions and are located mostly on the face, though they can be found on any skin that is exposed to the sun.

The tendency to develop freckles is inherited and is believed to be caused by a gene variant. For those with the tendency to get freckles, the actual freckling itself is caused by the same process as sun tanning but the melanin distribution of the skin is uneven. Freckles are most common in children from the ages of five to fifteen. Although freckles themselves are not a skin disorder, research has indicated that people with a predisposition to freckles are more likely to get sunburned or to develop skin cancer. Therefore, it is particularly important for those with freckles to take care of their skin and to protect it from the sun using a sun block of SPF 15 or higher.

As a person with freckles ages, the freckles will fade on their own. For a person who is particularly bothered by his or her freckles, it is possible to remove them with laser cosmetic surgery. The same procedure is used with freckles as with birthmarks that cause discoloration of the skin.

The laser can remove the discoloration caused by the freckles without harming the surrounding skin. It may, however, take several treatments for the freckles to be completely removed. Fortunately, it is possible to resume normal activity after undergoing laser freckle removal surgery because the procedure is non-invasive. Unfortunately, subsequent exposure to the sun can cause the freckles to reappear.

• Large pores 


• Fine lines

• Burn scars


• Stretch marks


• Keloid scars


• Injury scar


• Surgery scars


Laser scar removal represents another popular medical adaptation of laser technology. This laser treatment reduces the appearance of scars by 50 to 80 percent and helps prevent their recurrence.

Scars are caused when the wound-healing process begins with inflammation, moves to tissue formation, and ends with modifying specific factors in the anatomy such as collagen. Scars occur when the wound-healing process is disrupted by biological factors such as too much collagen or depleted collagen.

ScarsToday's laser scar removal techniques can reduce the appearance of keloid scars,hypertrophic scars, and atrophic scars, which have the following characteristics:

Keloid Scarring: Firm, raised, and reddish-purple scars that extend beyond the initial wound area and builds over time.

Hypertrophic Scarring: Firm, raised, and pink scars that remain within the initial wound area and possibly naturally regress over time.

Atrophic Scarring: Depressed pin-like pockets in the skin that can result from skin conditions or diseases such as acne.


• Caesarian Section scars

Many women who have had children by Cesarean have difficulty with their C-section scar after they are no longer having children. Although a Transverse incision, easier to hide, is most commonly used, many patients have had a Vertical incision which is very visible in a Bikini. After the C-section scar has healed the following problems can occur:
• A pouch or fold of skin on the lower abdomen-This is a fold of skin which forms above the transverse incision and is caused by wound contraction. It is called a “trap door” deformity and many patients complain that the tummy pouch or fold can be seen through clothing.
• A depression in the skin-the incision line can become depressed and if normal fat around the area has been damaged a divot can form deep in the area of the incision which is visible in clothing.

Fractional laser therapy is given for minimizing the scar appearance after the C section. In this process, the fraction of the skin is treated leaving the surrounding skin area untouched. This method helps in healing the scar rapidly and is very effective for removing the C section scar. Once the laser therapy is done it removes the dead cells, replacing it with collagen from the body thus forming new skin.


• Appendectomy Scars


• Pigmented lesions

Pigmented lesions are small marks that can appear anywhere on your skin. Usually brown in color, they can be found alone or in groups. It is possible, however, for pigmented lesions to be dark blue, black, or a pinkish flesh color. In addition they can be flat or round and come in a variety of colors.

Pigmented lesions are common. In fact, everyone has at least a few somewhere on his or her body. In fact, researchers believe that the pigmentations you will have are determined before you are ever born. During the first 20 years of your life, these pigmented lesions begin to appear. Changes in hormone levels from life events such as puberty and pregnancy can cause the appearance of pigmented lesions to change by becoming larger or darker. Most pigmentations last about 50 years before they begin to fade away on their own. Some will disappear completely on their own, while others may become lighter.

Laser pigmented lesions removal is the simplest method for getting rid of troublesome pigmentations. For the most part, it is not necessary to have an anesthetic in order to remove a pigmented lesion with laser treatment. Some patients report feeling a slight tingling when the laser pulses or a feeling as if they are being snapped by a rubber band.
