WHAT IS THE CO2 LASER PROCEDURE?
A CO2 laser is an ablation laser. The treatment with this device involves the performance of controlled micro-damage in the dermis, and heat energy is delivered to the tissue due to the action of light. As a result, the skin is stimulated to produce collagen and its rebuilding processes are activated.
Thanks to its action, CO2 laser has been widely used in aesthetic medicine, surgery, aesthetic gynaecology, laryngology and dentistry.
