What is Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment?
Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment is a ‘fractional’ treatment that treats minute sections of the skin, which penetrate into the dermis to stimulate significant collagen renewal. The surrounding non-affected areas of the skin aid the body’s natural recovery process for dramatic results without significant recovery time. As the new collagen filled cells replace the old tissue the skin has an even tone, becomes plumper, smoother and less lined.
What does treatment feel like?
A warm, heating sensation may be felt but is considered very tolerable by most people. The system has an inbuilt cooler which will cool the skin first, ensuring treatment is more comfortable.
What should I expect after treatment?
Your skin may appear red and flushed for a few hours after treatment. However, our Fractional CO2 Laser is unique and treats the tiniest section of skin in comparison to other fractional lasers. Therefore, any redness or swelling is very minimal. As the old skin tissue sheds your skin may appear more bronzed or tanned for a few days post treatment. Your skin will naturally exfoliate and may flake as if you have mild sunburn.
How many treatments will I need?
We often advise a series of three to six treatments for optimal results. If acne scarring is your primary concern you may require additional sessions. Treatment is carried out every three to six weeks but your laser clinician will advise the optimal frequency during your consultation.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are rare but could include a small blister,redness(sunburn), swollen, Any blistering is superficial and would heal within 5 days to 7 days.

‘I suffered from acne most of my teenage years and having an ambition to go to Paris to study fashion and design I wanted to feel good about myself. I had Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment at The Klinik Qistina in Pusat Bandar Putra Permai which helped with my acne scars and general skin pigmentation. I had always tried to find ways to improve my skin and confidence and even though the treatment I opted for was sometimes uncomfortable, it was definitely worth it. Now one year on I couldn’t be happier and I can finally leave the house without make-up on’ – Maisarah Salleh, Kuantan
