Dubbed the anti-aging breakthrough of the decade, this re-surfacing treatment combines the effectiveness of traditional carbon dioxide lasers, which have long-thought to be the gold standard in wrinkle removal, with a new application technique, the Sellas fractional CO2 laser delivers powerful results without the traditionally harsh side effects. With its unsurpassed technology, the Sellas fractional CO2 laser resurfacing procedure promises to achieve outstanding, long-term results in only one or two sessions, with minimal healing time.
What can the Sellas fractional CO2 laser treat?
- Deep-set wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone
- Uneven texture
- Dyschromia and other pigmentation abnormalities.
Candidacy for the procedure
You are a good candidate for laser skin surfacing if:
- You have fine lines or wrinkles any area of your skin.
- You have shallow scars from acne or non-responsive skin after a facelift
- You have uneven pigmentation
However, it is always recommended to consult a qualified dermatologist in your area who has notable experience in the field of laser skin care.
Is treatment painful?
Although patients may experience a tingling sensation during the treatment, unlike traditional laser resurfacing techniques, the advanced technique employed by the Sellas fractional CO2 laser resurfacing prevents damage to the top layer of skin, offering maximum results with minimal recovery time.
How does it work?
The natural aging process, combined with exposure to sun and pollution, destroys collagen, the main protein found in connective tissue that is responsible for keeping skin plump and line-free. Laser resurfacing uses beamlets of energy light to bore tiny holes in the skin, which works to put the body’s natural collagen production on fast-forward and which promotes collagen remodeling in the lower levels of the skin. The subsequent new collagen and elastin fiber that is formed translates into healthier, firmer, and tighter skin.
What to expect?
Right after the treatment, the skin may become reddish. This condition will last for approximately 48 hours. There will be slight peeling after that and may remain for few days. You can start your normal activities the next day of treatment but remember to properly act upon the aftercare instructions. However, it is always recommended to take a few days rest from your work.
