Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment in Mumbai, India
With people in the country becoming more and more appearance conscious everyday aesthetic treatments are only gaining popularity. And with stress and obesity now slowly encapsulating the modern society, seeking beauty enhancing and body toning treatments is on the rise. Anti-aging treatments in particular are very common nowadays. However there are some treatments that are more popular than others. And one such treatment is the laser treatment since it can be done at almost any dermatologist’s office and is quite painless when compared to some other treatment procedures that are available. This is why for fractional CO2 laser treatment India has experienced a rise in popularity.
A type of laser treatment procedure available for a multitude of cosmetic operations is the fractional CO2 laser. It is also called the pixelated CO2 laser. It is better than other available lasers since fractional CO2 laser has the longest wavelength. CO2 lasers treatment can be further divided into two further categories – one is an ablative CO2 laser treatment, other is a non-ablative CO2 laser treatment. When it comes to fractional CO2 laser treatment India has both options available.
Ablative fractional CO2 laser treatment
In this mode of CO2 laser treatment, the laser is used to vaporize the outermost layer of skin. This is done with the help of a high power light beam which is more powerful than a non-ablative CO2 laser. Since this is a power treatment procedure, patients do need anaesthesia or in some cases twilight sedation. Also, because of the intensity of this ablative laser, a patient who has undergone this mode of treatment needs more time to recover than the ones opting for a non-ablative CO2 laser treatment. It might take about a month to recover from the treatment procedure.
The patient is in fact bandaged in the area where treatment has been carried out. Once the treated area is exposed after the bandage is removed, it still might be red and in significant discomfort. Best ointments and creams will be provided by the doctors, which must be applied regularly to continue the healing process. Dermatologists inform patients about the procedures. For fractional CO2 laser treatment Mumbai has the best doctors.
Once the outermost layer of the skin is vaporized, new collagen is required to be formed. The skin underneath heals itself and thus you have a rejuvenated skin. Ablative CO2 laser treatment has been used to get dramatically best results when they have been applied to get rid of scars, lesions or patchy pigmentation. However, doctors do not recommend ablative CO2 laser treatment method for getting rid of wrinkles or enhancing dark skin. The intense nature of this mode of treatment makes it a better option to get the best possible results which is not the case with other procedures. But ablative fractional CO2 laser treatment India will see people taking on this option less than the non-ablative mode.
Non-ablative fractional CO2 laser treatment
In this mode of CO2 laser treatment, the resurfacing is done to penetrate into the skin and stimulate the production of collagen. This collagen, which is actually a protein which is found in the connective tissue, causes the area to plump up by filling in the spaces that are sagging. This fixes the wrinkles and the lines that patients complain about and want to get rid of. As a result, the skin becomes more smooth and youthful. That is for fractional CO2 laser treatment India is seeing more and more people opting for the non-ablative procedure.
Non-ablative fractional CO2 laser treatment is projected inside the skin rather than being a superficial treatment but is totally non-invasive. The recovery period is quite low, in fact in most cases patients can carry on with their normal lives almost immediately. However, due to this gentle nature of the non-ablative CO2 treatment procedure, results may also be mild and at times fail to achieve 100% results.
Non-ablative fractional CO2 laser treatment can work very well against acne scars, wrinkles and lines. In addition to those it also works great against hyperpigmentation, dark spots and sun spots. But as mentioned, since non-ablative CO2 laser is not as potent as an ablative one, getting desired results might take quite a few sessions. But it is far better when it comes to the aspect of pain. One disadvantage is that the treatment is not permanent, since this mode is not as intense as an ablative procedure.
