Frequently Asked Questions about the CO2 Fractional Treatment:
How is the CO2 fractional treatment different from traditional CO2 treatments?
With the new CO2 Fractional Technology it is possible to treat with 3 more gentle treatments of approximately 30 minutes each and get better results than the traditional CO2 lasers. There is less discomfort, downtime and cost. No more long periods of redness and prolonged social downtime associated with discomfort. With the latest CO2 fractional treatment those issues are less of a concern deciding when to do the treatment. Eye lid tightening and treatment of acne scarring are the two most popular areas treated.
Who is an ideal candidate for CO2 fractional and what areas can be treated?
Anyone who suffers from loose baggy skin, brown age spots, moderate to severe wrinkles, and acne scars are an ideal candidate. It is important to keep in mind that this technology is not only used for severe skin issues, in fact a lot of my patients simply feel their appearance looks aged and tired . CO2 fractional treatment is an excellent solution.
What sort of downtime can I expect?
This procedure – CO2 fractional – can be customized for your individual lifestyle. If you would prefer to have a single treatment and don’t mind having slightly more downtime we can be more aggressive in that single treatment to achieve your desired results. If you are time conscious and have to get back to work right after the weekend we can do multiple micro treatments which will achieve the same outcome just spaced over a longer period of time. Results are seen immediately and improve for 6 months.
Micro Needling Therapy with Epidermal Growth Factor
When women cross their thirties, many of them see wrinkles, crow’s feet near their eyes, which clearly say that they are ageing. Since no one would like to see the ageing signs, they would obviously try to look younger. But, anti ageing skin care products may give you only temporary results and using the same can leave your skin hard and rough. If you wish to try something natural, then the best way is to try micro needling therapy using derma roller.
When people hear about micro needling, they worry about the piercing pain. But, micro needling is done using derma roller and therefore, it is not a painful process. The process gives just a tingling sensation and that is all. The result that you obtain after the treatment is quite rewarding and hence more and more people are trying it now.
Skin needling in this way stimulates collagen production and, as a result, treatment can effectively benefit a range of issues caused by lack of collagen:
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles Acne scars and pitted scar reduction Scar treatment Pigmentation Marks Open Pores
- Secondly, skin micro needling massively improves the penetration of creams, gels and oils. As the products are absorbed far more successfully – their performance is boosted and you will see enhanced results, leading to healthier, smoother, softer and more radiant skin.
