1. How does fractional CO2 laser in Singapore work?
It involves vaporising the outer layer of your skin using a laser beam that is fractionated into mini rays of light. Once the outer layers have been treated, the surface will naturally repair itself by “pushing out” any damaged skin (i.e. your acne scarred) and substitute it with new and refreshed look. Through the procedure, your collagen production will also be given a significant boost, which aids in overall repair and rejuvenation.
2. What are the benefits?
Despite using a variety of over-the-counter products and natural remedies, you might find that acne scars seem to stay on you rather permanently. This is because most topical products simply sit on the surface and are not able to permeate deeper than that. To reach deeper into your damaged skin and cure severe acne scars, this method is highly recommended.
Instead of undergoing invasive cosmetic surgical procedures, it is much safer and poses fewer risks and side effects. While lasers might seem like a scary thing to be exposed to, you can rest assured that the services available today are designed to limit pain during and after the procedure.

3. What can I expect during a fractional CO2 laser?
After a assessment with our qualified therapists, you will be given pre-treatment instructions and have your first session scheduled. On the day of the procedure, a numbing cream will be applied to your face to ensure maximum comfort. During the procedure, a laser device will come into contact with your targeted areas and you may start to feel slight heat or a gentle “rubber band snapping” sensation. Following the procedure, moisturiser and sunscreen will be applied for hydration. Your therapist will provide you with detailed instructions to care for your post-treatment. Each session will typically last for about an hour, and you can expect your complexion to appear slightly pinkish and feel a little tight after that.

While results may vary per individual, most clients can actually notice results immediately after one session. You can expect to see a minimised appearance of pits and marks on your face. In four to six weeks after your first session, you may observe much smoother and firmer elasticity. As with most methods, you will reap the most optimum results with repeated sessions spanned across several months. By the end of your course, you can embrace a glowing and flawless complexion that is bound to boost your confidence.
