Still making up your mind? Read on to discover exactly why CO2 Laser is one of our most-loved laser treatments.

What is a CO2 Laser?

To start with, CO2 Laser is an ablative laser treatment. That means it removes a thin outer layer of skin and heats the skin underneath to stimulate collagen production. The result is smoother, tighter, glowing skin.

What Does The Treatment Involve?

Before your treatment, we’ll invite you for a consultation to discuss your skin goals and personalise a treatment plan. When you’re ready to go, we’ll start by cleaning the skin and applying a topical numbing cream. This will help with the minor discomfort of laser treatments. CO2 Laser treatments only take about 30 to 60 minutes, so you’ll be in and out quickly. After the treatment, your skin will be slightly sore and red, but this will settle over the coming days. In a few weeks, you’ll see major skin improvements.

Ablative Vs Non-Ablative treatments – What should I choose?

Ablative laser treatments remove the top layer of skin, whereas non-ablative lasers heat the underlying skin – without damaging the skin underneath – to encourage collagen production. While ablative lasers are more invasive, they’re a fantastic way to treat wrinkles, scarring and pigmentation. Often, only one treatment is required. On the other hand, non-ablative treatments can easily improve skin tone and texture. They can also improve very fine lines and mild pigmentation issues. Multiple treatments are usually needed. Depending on your skin concerns, you may need either one type of laser or a combination of the two. We’ll determine your ideal treatment plan during your consultation.

Benefits of CO2 Laser

Compared to other ablative laser treatments, CO2 Laser has a dramatically reduced downtime. Instead of weeks of painful downtime, you’ll only need five to seven days of social downtime as your face may be flaky and red. This means less time off work and faster results.

If you’re concerned about your ageing skin, this treatment can reduce the appearance of wrinkles by up to 70%. It is also a powerful treatment to improve sun damage and pigmentation. The rejuvenation of the skin plus the collagen stimulation means you’ll see incredible results after just one week, but you’ll continue seeing improvements for up to 12 months after the treatment.
