Fractional CO2 Laser

A non-surgical treatment that targets your acne scars, fine lines, and other skin concerns with minimal downtime.

The laser delivers a beam that is divided into thousands of tiny but deep columns of treatment into the skin. These columns are called microthermal treatment zones (MTZ). This concept of MTZ allows the laser to treat intensively within zones, while surrounding healthy tissue helps to speed up overall healing. The skin that has been treated then gives off cell signals which stimulate the body’s natural repair mechanisms to rebuild collagen in the targeted areas. The entire collagen remodelling process takes place over weeks to a month, and the final effect is smoother and tighter skin!



Edge Fractional CO2 laser belongs to the latest generation of fractional CO2 lasers. Conventional fractional CO2 lasers usually lead to redness for about 3 days and scabs for about 1 week. Edge technology gets around this problem by producing extremely fine beams – the end result is barely noticeable redness for about less than a day and no formation of rough scabs. Edge Fractional CO2 Laser offers all the benefits of traditional fractional CO2 lasers AND greatly reduces the associated downtime. Results are visible after about 2 to 3 treatment sessions – you will first notice that your skin gets smoother. Later on, scars get shallower and lighter.


Before & After

What You Should Know About Fractional CO2 Laser

The fractional CO2 laser is often done by applying a local anesthetic cream to the problem area 30 to 45 minutes prior. The procedure itself lasts for only 15 to 20 minutes.

It uses short-pulsed light energy (known as ultra pulse) that is continuously blasted through a scanning pattern in order to remove thin, outer layers of damaged skin. 

Once the dead skin cells are eliminated,  the procedure activates the production of multiple microthermal zones that reaches deep into the skin. Through this, it can stimulate your body’s natural healing process and boost collagen production. This ultimately replaces the old, damaged cells with new, healthy skin.

After the fractional CO2 laser procedure, you should apply sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Do make sure to also use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer twice a day and avoid any harsh products. It’s best to limit the use of makeup products as well because they can irritate the skin even more.

To ease the swelling around your face, you can try putting an ice pack or compress to the treated area in the first 24 to 48 hours after the fractional CO2 laser treatment. Apply ointment as necessary in order to prevent scabs from forming. Lastly, you may need to adjust your daily activities and avoid situations, such as swimming and workouts, where you can get an infection.
