EDGE FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER
Collagen is a very important protein in our skin which keeps it plump, elastic and smooth. Ageing and scarring leads to loss of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin.
HOW DO FRACTIONAL CO2 LASERS WORK?
Fractional CO2 lasers remain the gold standard in treating scars, rough skin as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
The laser delivers a beam that is divided into thousands of tiny but deep columns of treatment into the skin. These columns are called microthermal treatment zones (MTZ). This concept of MTZ allows the laser to treat intensively within zones, while surrounding healthy tissue helps to speed up overall healing. The skin that has been treated then gives off cell signals which stimulate the body’s natural repair mechanisms to rebuild collagen in the targeted areas. The entire collagen remodelling process takes place over weeks to a month, and the final effect is smoother and tighter skin!
WHAT MAKES EDGE FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER UNIQUE?
Edge Fractional CO2 laser belongs to the latest generation of fractional CO2 lasers. Conventional fractional CO2 lasers usually lead to redness for about 3 days and scabs for about 1 week. Edge technology gets around this problem by producing extremely fine beams – the end result is barely noticeable redness for about less than a day and no formation of rough scabs. Edge Fractional CO2 Laser offers all the benefits of traditional fractional CO2 lasers AND greatly reduces the associated downtime. Results are visible after about 2 to 3 treatment sessions – you will first notice that your skin gets smoother. Later on, scars get shallower and lighter.
