Acne is the skin condition that most people experience when they are in their teens, sometimes even in adulthood. Some high-quality products may have an impact, but they are not sufficient to offset the damage caused by UV damage or to counteract the effects of reduced skin collagen production and loss of elasticity. The best way to beautify your skin tone is to find the root cause of the problem, using CO2 laser skin treatment to treat a variety of skin and aging problems such as scarring, pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots and other skin irregularities is a good choice.
How Does It Work?
The spectral absorption of water provides CO2 surgery with the ability to coagulate, evaporate or cut tissue, depending on the power density and energy level applied by the surgeon. When the CO2 beam is defocused, the CO2 light will evaporate the soft tissue, and when the light is focused, the light can be cut like a scalpel. A beam of light is a highly concentrated and powerful beam that interacts with tissue in a special way. Surgeons use carbon dioxide for their excellent precision. The beam is very precise and can handle areas less than 1 mm in diameter with little impact on surrounding tissue. In addition, carbon dioxide surgery is performed in microsurgery and rigid endoscopy to achieve a surgical accuracy of a fraction of a millimeter.
Suggestion on Treatment
People with infections in the treatment area should not take the treatment because micro-trauma is easily infected, which exacerbates this problem.
People who have experienced chemical peeling in the past few months, or someone who has already undergone Dermabrasion, are also not suitable for CO2 laser treatment.
Comparison With YAG laser
Due to the different wavelengths of the laser beam, the YAG laser and the CO2 laser react differently to different materials. The wavelength of the YAG laser (1.064 microns) is exactly ten times smaller than the CO2 wavelength of 10.64 microns, which makes it very suitable for the absorption of most metals, but this small wavelength inhibits its ability to be absorbed by many other materials (wood), acrylic, plastic, fabric, etc.)
The CO2 laser beam is not easily absorbed by metals but is easily absorbed by many organic materials such as wood, acrylic, rubber, etc., and it tends to be reflected from most metal surfaces. The different wavelengths of the two beams are primarily responsible for the different types of materials they will react with. There are many other differences between the two lasers; thermal efficiency, heat transfer, minimum and maximum power output, etc., all of which affect the material of the beam reaction.
CO2 Laser Skin Care can improve and beautify your complexion in a variety of ways. First, it targets and corrects your specific skin problems. For example, it can be used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles or to eliminate scars, brown spots and hyperpigmentation. In addition, high-energy laser beams can also cause the skin to increase collagen production, resulting in short-term and long-term effects. Your skin will look firmer shortly after surgery. The continued stimulation of the new underlying collagen means that you will continue to notice improvements over time.
Side Effect and Risk
Any CO2 laser treatment can cause discomfort and it takes 3-4 days to recover. However, some people may face higher risks due to previous medical problems. For example, patients infected in the treatment area should not undergo surgery because micro-trauma is easily infected, which exacerbates this problem.
Individuals who have experienced chemical peeling in the past few months, or individuals who have already undergone Dermabrasion, are also not suitable for CO2 laser treatment. The idea behind many of these treatments is the same as laser resurfacing; breaking the cells that have been damaged on the surface and letting the skin heal itself. If CO2 laser surgery is performed soon, the damage may be too severe, the body may be difficult to handle, and may cause permanent discolouration or scarring of the skin.
