Thinking about offering CO2 laser resurfacing in your salon or clinic? Joanne Leahy, head of training at 3D Aesthetics, talks through the benefits of the treatment – sponsored story
CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a revolutionary treatment requiring minimal downtime. The procedure embraces CO2 technology to provide total skin resurfacing, which is safe and fast highly effective. It's ideal for those with busy lifestyles or clients who cannot afford to be away from work due to downtime as it provides amazing results with minimal recovery time.
What can CO2 laser skin resurfacing treat?
Traditional methods of skin resurfacing (non-fractional) have always been considered the first choice of treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. However, due to the lengthy recovery times and frequent compilations, not all clients want to undergo this invasive treatment.
3D Vjuve is an advanced fractional CO2 laser, offering face and body resurfacing. The fractional CO2 laser can be used to treat a wide variety of aesthetic concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, dyschromia, pigmented lesions, skin surface irregularities, as well as stretch marks and loose skin.
How does CO2 skin resurfacing work?
3D Vjuve skin resurfacing works by using CO2 to deliver superficial energy into the skin, creating tiny white ablated dots of heat stimulated tissue through the skin layers. This results in an inflammatory response that stimulates new collagen and proteoglycan production. As a result, the thickness and hydration of the dermis and epidermis are improved, which helps achieve a healthier and glowing appearance of your client's skin. The treatment can be complemented with LED therapy to help with the regeneration of the cells.
Benefits of CO2 resurfacing treatments
• Offers total skin rejuvenation
• Safe and fast
• Affordable alternative to surgery
What will clients experience during and after the treatment?
Your clients may experience a 'stinging' sensation during the treatment. An anaesthetic cream can be applied before treatment to reduce discomfort during the procedure. Immediately after the treatment, the area may appear red and swollen. The skin should normalise within two to three days, after which it will start to peel, leaving the skin looking fresher and healthier. The results are evident after the collagen regeneration period of 90 days.
How many treatments are recommended?
The number of sessions depends on the client's concerns. We recommend an average of 3-5 sessions every 2-5 weeks. However, this can be assessed and discussed when you deliver your consultation.
What aftercare and downtime is needed after CO2 resurfacing?
As this treatment is non-surgical, there is no downtime, and clients can continue with their day-to-day activities. For the best results, we recommend a regenerative and hydrating skincare routine. The use of SPF 30 following any laser resurfacing treatment is essential.
