Facial laser resurfacing has become a popular option for patients seeking to enhance the appearance of their skin. Unlike traditional laser peels, where effective results are associated with long periods of downtime, fractional CO2 laser resurfacing technology offers a short-downtime solution for treating wrinkles, scars, pigment, and tone and texture of the skin.

First generation fractional devices like Fraxel  use non-ablative laser energy, leaving columns of necrotic debris in the tissue. They require multiple treatments and are not very effective on wrinkles or deep scars. New generation fractional devices use ablative wavelengths – Er:YAG, CO2 or Er:YSGG. The results are more dramatic, but limited by the characteristics of the wavelength used.

At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin our unique tunable fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing device allows us to emulate any ablative fractional technology thereby optimizing treatment depth, area coverage, and the ratio of ablation and thermal zone to each patient’s condition, skin type, desired outcome and tolerance of downtime.
