The fractional Co2 laser removes the superficial layers of skin, taking along with it the damaged tissue. It also acts on the deeper layers of the dermis, where through heat and energy it stimulates the body to make new collagen. The principle on which it works is to deliver a laser beam that is divided into thousands of deep but tiny columns known as micro treatment zones. the micro action of expelling damaged and pigmented epidermal cells as well as collagen remodeling in deeper dermal tissue happens in each of these zones. What results, is your skin being â€˜resurfacedâ€™ with a fresh and new appearance. It doesnâ€™t just help with the scars, but also works on removing pigmentation and helps against superficial wrinkles etc. However, considering that we Indians in general have a darker skin tone, we must be careful of the risks and the after care required. Please read about them in the relevant sections of this page.

All treatments at SkinGenious start with consulting one of the top dermatologists in the city. When you meet the specialist, you will share your concerns and they will collect the relevant history. After this, they will devise the ideal treatment plan for you. In case of acne scars, Fractional Co2 laser treatment may often be chosen as the ideal treatment.
The preparation for treatment starts with a clean-up of the face or any other targeted area, including removal of any creams, make-up or jewelry. This is followed by application of a numbing cream, without which the treatment could be slightly painful. The numbing cream takes 15-30 minutes to act. After this, you wear protective goggles and a gliding gel is applied over the target area to enable smooth movement of the laser probe.
Your dermatologist (for face) will deliver energy pulses from the laser machine on the targeted areas during the treatment. Post the treatment, your therapist will temove the excess gliding gel. This is followed by the application of a strong sun screen (50+ SPF). Before you leave the clinic, collect the after-care guidelines and skin care prescription from your dermatologist. Follow the after-care instructions very seriously.
You can expect up to 90% improvement in your scars with the fractional Co2 laser treatment, which is also often called the fraxel laser. The procedure takes around 45 minutes to complete. There is a down-time of 48-96 hours after the treatment. This is due to scabbing and flaking that occurs in the skin. You will start seeing significant results 2 weeks after your session and the change is permanent. Some indivuduals may require multiple sessions of the treatment for ideal results.
The risks and side effects for laser treatment of acne scars include:
Swelling which can last 2-3 days
Redness which can last up to 14 days
Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (seen even with chemical peels)
Flare-up of herpes virus infection
Flare-up of acne without proper after-care.
To prepare for your laser resurfacing treatment for acne scars, it is advisable to take the following steps:
Stop smoking 2 weeks prior to the treatment.
Do not use retinoids for the prescribed period of time before before the treatment (your dermatologist will let you know).
Share your medical history with the skin specialist, especially on cold sores and PIH
Avoid this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Remove your make up before the consultation so as to define your problem areas and expectations correctly.
After the procedure, avoid using any products not prescribed by the specialist or without checking with them.
Avoid make-up on the day of the treatment.
The most important after care requirement for all these procedures is to avoid sun exposure. Apart from simply using sunscreen, you may be suggested additional measures such as wearing a hat or sun glasses.
