Fractional Laser Co2 is a non-surgical treatment that can be used to target a wide range of skin aging issues and it’s ideal for people who want their skin to look healthier with natural-looking results but can’t afford a lot of time away from work or their social life.
Fractional CO2 lasers are effective for reducing wrinkles, scars, blotchiness, and other imperfections of the skin’s surface.
HOW DOES FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER WORK?
Fractional Laser Co2 is a non-invasive laser treatment that uses fractional photo thermolysis to penetrate through the skin layer to promote collagen production which results in a smoother and an even complexion to your skin.
DROOPY EYE LIDS – FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER
This non-surgical eyelid lift treatment utilizes fractional laser technology. The effects achieved are the tightening of minor excess skin on the eyelids, the reduction of signs of ageing and fine lines around the eye area, and the complete renewal of the skin. Subtle results are seen after the first treatment. The quality of the skin improves due to the new collagen and elastin growth.
FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER EYE LIFT TREATMENT
The treatment is fast, taking 10 mins and require only topical numbing cream for 30 minutes. After treatment, there will be initial swelling and redness and will subside in few days.
Fractional Co2 laser can provide dramatic results. It removes old skin cells in order to reveal newer, more youthful cells. It also heats the layers underneath to promote collagen production, which stimulates skin in the treatment area to heal in a smoother, more even appearance. After a few sessions, you will see that your eye lids are more lifted.

NECK WRINKLES / CREASES – FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER
Fractional Co2 lasers, also known as Fraxel lasers, are a great option for people looking to improve their deep wrinkles, crepey and weathered skin on the neck.
HOW DO FRACTIONAL LASERS WORK?
Fractional Co2 Lasers improve the surface of the skin by creating thousands of tiny “micro-thermal” zones deep under the skin. As the skin heals, it sheds the damaged skin, promotes collagen production, and creates new skin cells. This is often done over a series of treatments, depending on the severity of wrinkles and creases you are trying to repair.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME AND RESULTS?
It depends on the levels that are used, generally most people would have to hibernate for about 3 to 4 days.
Desired outcomes are typically reached in multiple treatment, but we usually recommend a minimum of 3 to 4 sessions. Using a suitable product after treatments, will prolong the results.

AMOUNT TREATMENTS NEEDED FOR SKIN RESURFACING
Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment; however, the number of treatments needed may vary from patient to patient. Most patients achieve their goals after two to three treatments that are spaced 2 to 3 months apart.
In Celevenus, Dr Chau can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may choose to combine with other aesthetic procedures to further customize your treatment. Procedure usually lasts from 15 to 20 minutes.
One of the primary advantages of skin resurfacing is that it causes minimal discomfort because it does not penetrate very deep into the skin. For most patients, a topical numbing cream is all that is needed.
WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE IMMEDIATELY AFTER SKIN RESURFACING TREATMENT?
A sunburn may be noticed in the treated area for a few hours after treatment. Swelling will also be present only as a short-term after effect of the treatment. Often tissue will peel or flake as a result of the treatment. Peeling or flaking usually occurs after 36 -48 hours.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SKIN AFTER THE TREATMENT
Patients will be advised to moisturise often to hydrate the skin and escalate the healing process. They can use a product they already own or a recommended product for post treatment from us.
Patients are also advised to use sunblock to minimise the chances of post-inflammatory pigmentation due to exposing the sensitive treated area to direct sunlight.
