Why Fractional CO2 Lasers are the New Standard in Scar Removal

Beatrice J. Doty

The Fractional CO2 laser has quickly become the go-to treatment for scar removal. This is because the laser can target deep tissue without causing damage to the surrounding skin. The result is a more effective and safer treatment than other options like dermabrasion or chemical peels.

There are many lasers on the market that claim to be effective for scar removal, but not all of them are created equal. Fractional CO2 lasers are the new gold standard for scar removal, offering superior results with minimal side effects.

Here’s a closer look at why fractional CO2 lasers are so effective for scar removal, and why they should be your go-to choice if you’re looking to improve the appearance of your skin.

What Are Fractional CO2 Lasers?

Fractional CO2 lasers are a type of ablative laser that uses carbon dioxide (CO2) to remove damaged tissue. The Fractional CO2 laser beam is divided into thousands of tiny microbeams, which target a fraction of the skin at a time.

This allows the laser to remove damaged tissue while leaving the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes faster healing and reduces side effects. Fractional CO2 lasers can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, and acne scars.

Why Are Fractional CO2 Lasers the Best Choice for Scar Removal?

There are several reasons why fractional CO2 lasers are the best choice for scar removal. First, fractional CO2 lasers can be used to treat both shallow and deep scars.

Shallow scars are often treated with non-ablative lasers, which don’t penetrate as deeply into the skin. This means that they can’t always reach the deepest layers of skin where scars reside.

On the other hand, fractional CO2 lasers can be adjusted to reach different depths in the skin, making them ideal for treating both shallow and deep scars.

Second, fractional CO2 lasers are very effective at breaking up scar tissue. When scars form, the collagen fibers in the skin become tangled and matted.

Fractional CO2 lasers can loosen up these fibers and break up the scar tissue, which promotes smoother, healthier-looking skin.

Third, fractional CO2 lasers stimulate collagen production. As we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen, which leads to wrinkles, fine lines, and saggy skin.

Fractional CO2 lasers can help improve the appearance of aging skin by stimulating the production of collagen. This helps to fill in wrinkles and fine lines, and firms up loose, saggy skin.

Fourth, fractional CO2 lasers are safe for all skin types. Some lasers, such as those that use ultraviolet (UV) light, can cause damage to the skin, particularly if you have darker skin tones.

Fractional CO2 lasers are safe for all skin types, including those with darker skin tones. This makes them a great choice for people who are looking to improve the appearance of their skin without having to worry about side effects.

Finally, fractional CO2 lasers offer long-lasting results. Most people see a significant improvement in the appearance of their scars after just one treatment. And, because these lasers stimulate collagen production, the results of treatment can last for months or even years. This makes them a great choice for people who are looking for long-term improvement in the appearance of their scars.

If you’re looking for an effective way to improve the appearance of your scars, fractional CO2 lasers are the way to go. These lasers offer superior results with minimal side effects, making them the new gold standard for scar removal.

Schedule a consultation with a qualified aesthetician or dermatologist to see if fractional CO2 laser treatment is right for you.
