Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Laser

Carbon dioxide (CO2) laser is one of the most powerful lasers with a wavelength of 10600 nm. The fact that it reaches deeper layers and generates higher heat than other lasers has limited its use. However, thanks to the developing technology, fractionalization of laser energy has made the CO2 laser much more functional without reducing its power. Thanks to fractional laser technology, intact islets remain around the heat damaged tissue. Thus, the side effect profile is reduced. In addition, there is no pain during the application, anesthesia is not required, and the healing time is shortened as there is no open wound.

Areas of use
  • Removal of acne scars
  • Reduction/removal of scarring
  • Removal of skin blemishes
  • Skin lightening
  • Reduction of burn and surgical scars
  • Reduction of fine and medium wrinkles
  • Improving skin quality and elasticity by eliminating large pores and rough skin appearance

Things to watch out for
  • Use of retinoic-containing drugs such as roaccutane, acnelyse tretin
  • Laser treatment should be avoided in case of recent skin peeling procedures such as chemical peeling microdermabrasion.
Treatment process

Anesthetic cream is applied before the application. Redness and edema are observed after the procedure. Redness starts to decrease day by day. Crusting begins after about 5-7 days. These crusts fall off in 10-15 days and renewed skin comes from underneath. During these periods, it is possible to be in social environments with concealer makeup. Antibiotic cream and epithelizing creams are recommended after the procedure. Patients with frequent herpes (herpes labialis) should start prophylaxis with tablets before the procedure. Cold compresses can be applied in the first days when redness and edema will occur. Skin moisturizing is also very important in this process. Repeats may be required according to the needs of the skin. It is very important to protect from the sun and avoid solarium to avoid staining after the procedure.
