Fractional CO2 Lasers

Fractional CO2 lasers are a medically-proven and established treatment method. These lasers have been used worldwide in laser skin resurfacing treatments for acne scars and photo-damaged skin for many years.

 

While they are established treatment method, fractional CO2 lasers may not be suitable for everyone:

  • Studies have shown that there may be higher down times and higher chances of post-procedure hyperpigmentation in Asian skin after treatment by fractional CO2 lasers. In order to minimize these concerns, fractional CO2 lasers are often not used to the maximum power (and hence effectiveness) when treating Asian skin.

  • For some hard-to-treat acne scars, however, fractional CO2 laser resurfacing may not be enough.

 

Despite its shortcomings, fractional CO2 lasers are still a good treatment option for select patients. Consult with your doctor to learn more. Temasek Medical Aesthetics offers Fractional CO2 Laser Facials, 10 Sessions @ $1,988 net.
