Rejuvenation with fractional CO2 laser

Fractional CO2 lasers used in skin rejuvenation open microscopic columns in the skin, as opposed to conventional CO2 lasers that affect the entire skin surface.

These columns are very thin channels. The primary target in these regions is water, ie structures containing water such as collagen, blood vessels, keratinocytes, selective thermal damage.

The living cells in the undamaged areas immediately adjacent to the thermal damaged zone migrate to the damaged area and stimulate the repair mechanism there. Thus, new collagen production begins under the skin.

The greatest feature of the new generation fractional CO2 lasers is their ability to perform their functions under the skin without damaging the skin’s upper surface. Thus, a much faster improvement occurs on the surface of the skin and people can return to their social lives in a short time.

The thickness of the treated skin during fractional laser applications is known as chemical peeling or dermabrasion, as well as eye darkness or experience-based shape, rather than pinewood depth. Despite its strong fractional nature, the rate of recovery after application is very high and the duration of recovery is short. Because the wavelength is longer, it has a much higher effect than similar systems, since it has a deeper dermis effect.

Where are Fractional CO2 Laser Used?

Skin Renewal, facial rejuvenation:

It is used to remove wrinkles and lines on the face, eyelids, neck, décolleté area, and in the aesthetic of the genital area.

Acne Scar, Wound Burns TREATMENT:

It is used in correcting the appearance of acne scars and pits, scars and burn marks and skin cracks on the face, back and torso.

• Removing the skin’s large pore and rough appearance

• Elimination of sunscreen, old age spot, post-natal spots and superficial pigment defects in the skin

• Reduction of bad wound healing (hypertrophic scarring) and scarring (keloid)

• Treatment of some skin cancers

• Pyogenic granuloma treatment

• rhinophyma and otofim treatment

• Treatment of congenital or acquired mynia

• Treatment of cholesterol plaques (xanthalezma) in the eyelids

• Treatment of warts and condylomas in places such as hands, feet, genital area

What is Fractional CO2 Laser Resulting Skin Changes?

After Fractional CO 2 laser application, a sudden 30% shortening of subcutaneous collagen fibers occurs. In the next 1 to 3 months, the formation of new collagen under the skin and the rearrangement of subcutaneous connective tissue occurs. As a consequence of all this, skin tension, called skin rejuvenation, is reduced at high levels on the roughness, stains and marks on the skin. The pores in the skin narrows and the skin structure returns to its state 2 – 5 years ago.

Is Fractional CO2 Laser Practice Painful?

Burning and pain during application. This feeling can be reduced using local anesthetic creams.

How Many Fractional CO2 Laser Applications Are Made?

The number of sessions in a fractional CO2 laser system varies depending on the severity of the problem and on the power and depth settings of the application. While mild to moderate wrinkles and scars are sufficient for 2-3 sessions, very deep acne scars and wrinkles are treated in 3 to 5 sessions. The sessions range from 1 to 1.5 months.

What are the Features of the Healing Process?

No dressing is required after fractional CO2 laser application. Redness and edema occur on the first day of skin. There will be no complaints other than point crust, which lasts 3-7 days. The patient can make up from day 3. This advantage of CO2 fractional laser allows the patient to continue in his daily life.

What should be taken into account before application?

Patient should stay away from sun and solarium for 1 month before application. Drugs that inhibit blood clotting (aspirin, heparin), retinoid drugs (isotretinoin), drugs that cause light sensitivity (tetracycline, naproxen, estrogen, progesterone, birth control pills, chloroquine) should not be taken. If the skin is treated with abrasive dermabrasion and peeling or skin stretching operation before application, it should be told to the practicing doctor. If there is a history of herpes removal in the patient, she should definitely take medication prior to administration.

What should be taken care of after application?

A warm shower can be taken 2 days after application. Cold compress can be applied to reduce edema and inflammation. The skin should be kept moist and clean in order to reduce the scaling that may occur in the skin after application. During the first week this moisturizing process should be repeated 3-4 times a day. Depending on the skin type and environmental conditions of the patient, sun protectors should be used after healing and skin peeling creams should not be used for at least 1 month.

Who does not apply the treatment?

• If there is a history of using isotretinoin in the last 3 months, this treatment is not applied.

• Not applicable to pregnant women.

• Skin acti
