Edge One Fractional CO2 Laser
Who should have Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment?
The suitable candidates for Fractional CO2 Laser are those who are looking to smoothen their skin and reduce the appearance of ageing such as:
How does Fractional CO2 Work?
Fractional CO2 laser produces thousands of tiny microthermal zones in the treated areas.
Each zone is the diameter of a shaft of hair, however these columns extend deep into middle layer of the skin- where scars lie.
Laser targets the scarred areas and old collagen, but also leaves areas of healthy tissue to regenerate through collagen production.
Fractional laser treatment allows less patient downtime and side effects compared to fully ablative lasers but still delivers great results.
Edge One Fractional CO2 Laser vs Other Fractional CO2 Lasers (Fraxel)
With the latest generation of Fractional CO2 Lasers, the Edge Pulse was introduced in Singapore.
This Edge Fractional CO2 Laser treatment solves the problem of traditional Fractional CO2 Laser treatments like Fraxel by greatly reducing the downtime associated with the treatment.
Conventional Fractional CO2 Laser treatments usually cause patients to have redness for 3 days and scabs for 1 week.
This latest Edge Fractional CO2 Laser gets around this problem by producing very fine beams that cause minimal redness and scabs that are so fine that they are barely noticeable.
Sozo offers Edge One which is the newly improved version of Edge Fractional CO2 at a price range starting from $450.
When Will I See Results With Fractional CO2 Laser?
For mild acne scarring, you may need 3 to 5 treatments to see results.
For severe acne scarring, you may need 5 to 10 sessions.
Each session should be done on a monthly basis.
Patients will notice texture improvements in their skin after about a week post-treatment.
As collagen production occurs, the skin will continue to improve gradually and the skin will become firmer and tighter.
