Fractional CO2 Laser

Fractional CO2 Laser is globally recognized as the gold standard in skin resurfacing and rejuvenation. This state-of-the-art laser treatment effectively resurfaces the skin through a series of micro-DOT wounds, ideal for targeting concerns like wrinkles, stretch marks, acne and surgical scars, and achieving firmer, smoother skin. It is also suitable for younger patients who are looking for more significant skin rejuvenation, dark circle treatment and eye bags treatment in fewer visits.

What to expect

How does Fractional CO2 Laser work?

Utilizing advanced carbon dioxide laser technology, the Fractional CO2 Laser delivers precise microscopic laser spots to the skin. These spots create tiny wounds in the deeper layers, initiating a natural healing process. This process boosts collagen and elastin production, key to maintaining youthful, elastic skin, and is particularly effective in treating wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, uneven colouring, stretch marks and various types of scars, including acne and surgical scars. The laser treatment is also renowned for its skin tightening and skin rejuvenation benefits, promoting smoother and firmer skin.

Which one is better CoolPeel CO2 or Fractional CO2 laser?

CoolPeel CO2 is preferable if you’re looking for a milder treatment with quicker recovery and are addressing more surface-level skin concerns. You will need 3-4 treatments.

Fractional CO2 Laser is the better choice for more significant skin issues and when you’re seeking more dramatic, long-lasting results, provided you’re comfortable with a longer recovery time. Most of the times it’s one off treatment.

How does the treatment feel like?

We ensure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure and apply a medical grade numbing cream 45 minutes prior or use an injection to effectively block the sensation in smaller areas. The resulting sensation is often described as “pins and needles” and a feeling of tightness.

Can Fractional CO2 laser be used around the eyes?

Yes, the Fractional CO2 Laser is suitable for use around the eyes and eyelids targeting early signs of aging like fine lines and “crow’s feet.” This laser is effective for eye tightening, treating eyelids, reducing both upper and lower eye bags, and improving the appearance of dark circles.


How many treatments will I need?

For scar treatment, the results are permanent as scars do not reappear once removed. Textural improvements are also long-lasting, with no recurrence expected.

For ongoing benefits in addressing skin laxity, lines, and wrinkles, we suggest scheduling maintenance treatments at intervals of 6 to 18 months. This ensures your skin remains at its rejuvenated best.

What can I expect after my treatment?

After a full-face Fractional CO2 Laser treatment, patients typically experience significant swelling and redness, akin to a severe sunburn. For full-face and eyelid treatments, you’ll need to arrange transportation home, as it’s not safe to drive afterward. If only the body or parts of the face are treated, you may be fine to travel on your own. Pain relief such as Panadol might be needed, and several days of rest at home are advised for recovery. Patients are also scheduled for a complimentary follow-up visit a week later to monitor the healing process.


How will my skin look and feel after the treatment?

After recovering from a Fractional CO2 Laser treatment, your skin should appear visibly rejuvenated. You’ll notice a smoother texture and more even skin tone, as the laser helps reduce the appearance of pores and other skin imperfections. Wrinkles and fine lines typically diminish, and in cases of scarring, such as from acne or surgical scars, you may see a significant improvement. The overall result is often a fresher, more youthful look, with enhanced skin clarity and firmness. It’s important to remember that individual results can vary, and maintaining a good skincare routine post-treatment is crucial for long-lasting results.
