Fractional CO2 Laser Dubai is an advanced skin resurfacing treatment that combines the effectiveness of traditional carbon dioxide lasers. CO2 lasers have long been thought to be the gold standard in wrinkle removal. The new SELLAS Fractional CO2 Laser delivers incredible results without any side effects. Instead of removing the entire topmost layer of the skin like traditional lasers, this advanced laser targets the deeper skin tissues. This Laser Skin Resurfacing procedure promises to achieve outstanding, long-term results in one or two sessions, with minimal healing time. It is an incredible anti-aging treatment that eliminates numerous aging signs such as wrinkles, freckles, pigmentation, etc.

Pre-Procedure Care

Although Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment is not a surgical treatment, candidates need to prepare their skin before the procedure. It helps achieve optimum results without any complications. Generally, an expert provides pre-procedure guidelines, however, some general instructions are as follows:

  • Stop using Retin-A ointments at least a week before the treatment.
  • Do not take blood-thinning medications, such as ibuprofen and aspirin.
  • Avoid taking supplements, such as vitamins, fish oil, etc.
  • Start applying the doctor-prescribed skin lightening cream (if any) at least 3-4 weeks before the treatment.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothes that can be easily removed on the day of the treatment.
  • Avoid wearing any makeup, cream, lotion, or skincare product on the day of the treatment.


When the natural aging process combines with pollution and sun exposure, it destroys collagen. Collagen is the primary protein found in connective tissue responsible for keeping the skin plump and wrinkle-free. Laser resurfacing uses beams of laser light to bore tiny holes in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. As a result, it promotes collagen remodeling in the deeper layers of the skin. The new collagen and elastin fiber that is formed helps achieve healthier, firmer, and tighter skin.

The step-by-step procedure for CO2 Fractional Laser Dubai is as follows:

  • First of all, the dermatologist will cleanse the treatment area.
  • Then, he/she will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area for about 30-45 minutes.
  • After numbing the skin, he/she will use a handheld device to target the treatment area with a fractional CO2 laser.
  • Once the dermatologist has targeted the entire treatment area with laser beams, he/she will conclude the treatment.
  • In the end, he/she will apply a topical antibiotic to the treatment area.

Post-Procedure Care

There are few aftercare instructions that your dermatologist will advise you to follow. To get the maximum results out of the treatment, you need to act on their guidelines. Some general aftercare instructions are given below:

  • Keep the treated areas covered as per the dermatologist’s instructions.
  • On the first night after the surgery, keep your head slightly elevated while sleeping.
  • To avoid irritation to the eye, a lubricant can be used as prescribed.
  • Avoid direct sunlight exposure.
  • Avoid showering in hot water.
  • Keep your skin moisturized and hydrated.
  • Continue applying the ointment if needed.
  • Use non-irritating skin products.
  • Apply mineral makeup, if needed.
  • Avoid strenuous exercises for 2-3 weeks after the procedure.

Right after the treatment, the skin may become reddish and this condition will last for approximately 48 hours. There will be slight peeling after that and may remain for a few days. You resume your regular activities the next day of the treatment, but remember to properly follow the aftercare instructions. Moreover, it is always recommended to take a few days off from your work.
