The Well CO2 skin resurfacing laser is a powerful tool for the treatment of several skin conditions including acne scarring.
The fractional ability of this laser enables it to deliver energy in a scanning pattern rather than a continuous beam. This reduces unnecessary heat build-up in the skin, allowing higher energy levels to be applied. The application of the laser in this controlled way allows the top layers of skin to vaporise and peel in a manner that provides quick recovery and significant improvement in terms of skin quality. The Well CO2 laser also stimulates collagen regrowth, which will give the skin a much smoother, blemish-free appearance.
Treatment with the CO2 laser has been proven safe for the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. It can be used on most parts of the skin that shows signs of scarring.
Reduction in acne scarring or individual scars.Textural improvement which removes pigmentation problems, reduces pore size, wrinkles, acne scars, and other textural irregularities.Effective reduction of skin lesions e.g. discolouration from sun damage and ageing.Stimulates new collagen production for up to one year following treatment.Minimal discomfort with topical anaesthetic creamMinimal downtime: typically 5 days in total, of which 3 days are infection risk and the subsequent 2 days being ‘social downtime’ due to facial redness.
You can see results immediately as the CO2 laser’s wavelength targets and vaporises the water held within the skin. This causes the skin to contract. Patients will be able to see the benefit of the skin tightening effect once the skin has peeled away.
When we are doing the procedure you can immediately see the skin contract and shrink.
The quality of the skin’s texture continues to improve over the coming months as the generation of new collagen simulates healthier and younger-looking skin.
