What is Fractional CO2 Laser?
The CO2 Skin Resurfacing Laser by DEKA is a fractional, ablative laser that effectively targets acne scars, large pores and uneven skin tone.
The CO2 laser emits thousands of tiny microthermal beams on treated areas that is able to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin, creating thermal injury zones without damaging the surrounding tissues.
Through this, skin texture and scar appearance will become noticeably smoother as new skin and collagen forms during the healing process. Over time, depressed acne scars, fine lines & wrinkles are levelled out.

After the treatment, it is normal for clients to experience pain and redness, skin peeling, swelling and spots on the targeted areas. All these effects are normal and will subside over the course of a few days.
We do encourage our patients to use a gentle cleanser, moisturer and sun-screen throughout the healing process, and to not use exfoliating scrubs or retinol-based products until fully healed.
Cold packs are encouraged to be used to reduce skin redness or swelling, and execcesive exposure to the sun should be limited during the healing process.
In our CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing procedure, we apply a numbing cream 30-45 minutes prior of the laser treatment. This is to ensure that minimal discomfort is felt and patients are able to find the session comfortable.
The procedure itself will take around 15-20 minutes, followed be a EDF Mask & Light Therapy to heal the skin and reduce any skin flushing or redness.
Post treatment, we’ll advise an hourly cold compress on the first day to calm the skin. In the days to come, the skin will peel to shed its dead cells and remain pink for about 3-6 weeks for a full recovery.
