The Co2 Laser is considered the golden standard for Laser Cosmetic Surgery. It is designed to treat Fine Lines & Wrinkles and Deep Lines & Wrinkles around the eyes, lips, forehead and cheek. It can also rejuvenate skin with severe Skin Ageing, Sun Damage and Scars.
The Co2 Laser emits a laser beam that produces more residual thermal activity than the Erbium Laser. Consequently, as the skin heals it produces additional collagen which in turn promotes a further reduction in Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Deep Lines & Wrinkles, Scars and Sun Damage. Once the skin heals, it reveals a softer, smoother, and more youthful appearance.

You are provided with an after hours direct number in the event you may have any questions or concerns you wish to speak to us about.
After your procedure your skin may feel slightly hot. This will reduce gradually. Mild to moderate swelling is normal and may last for several days.

You will also be given some medication to take to prevent swelling and infection.
