The technology behind the CO2 fractional laser

The CO2 fractional laser is one of the most effective treatments for skin rejuvenation especially in the face, the neck, the decolletage and the hands.
The laser emmits the energy in 3 different pulses through small holes.
The grey and brown dots seen after the end of the treatment are the entrance points of the energy to the skin and are called MEND (microscopic epidermal necrotic debris). 
The kind of pulse is chosen according to the skin type of the patient and the indication (acne scars, antiageing, strech marks, surgical scars and superficial pigmentations).
While the skin heals after the laser treatment new collagen is created not only in the entry points but also in the surrounding tissue. The skin becomes for bright, firm and scar tissue begins to faint.
Depending on the skin type and the goals of the patient the treatment can be individualised to deep or superficial rejuvenation.
The pain during the treatment, something that worries the patient, is reduced not only due to the anesthetic cream used prior to the treatment but also due to the cold air delivered from a Zimmer Cryo Cooler maschine during the treatment.
All of the lasers and maschines are regularly serviced in order to guarantee you the proper energy delivery and avoid any complications.
Before starting the treatments we suggest a clinical examination from Dr. Christos Pallouras in order to set the goals of the treatment and the number of sessions needed.
