What is the Fractional CO2 Laser Machine?
Fractional CO2 Laser Machine mainly emits CO2 laser in the form of a dot matrix. It is an ablative laser that resurfaces and rebuilds the epidermis similar to dermabrasion. It disperses the originally gathered light spots into dozens to hundreds of smaller focal spots. That is, a small amount of thermal damage is separated. Normal tissue between thermal injuries is thus unaffected. This part of the skin can be used as a heat diffusion area to avoid possible side effects such as heat damage. It also promotes the healing process of the skin. In this way, the heat damage to the skin caused by one-time treatment can be reduced, and the effectiveness of the treatment can be guaranteed. It can also reduce the patient's pain. Allow patients to resume their daily routine in a shorter period of time and are less prone to side effects.

Cautions after Fractional CO2 Laser Machine treatment
On the day of treatment, you can simply shower or wash your face. But it is best to wash it after two days. If you do need to wash your face, lightly wet your face with water, work up enough lather with soap, and massage gently without rubbing or pressing the skin.
Exfoliation treatment will cause scabs, which will gradually disappear in about 7 to 10 days. During this period, if it is forcibly removed or soaked in a sauna, the part of the scab will turn red and the pigment will accumulate after a few days. So it's best to leave it as it is until it falls off naturally.
Avoid excessive exercise such as swimming and saunas where you sweat enough to soak your T-shirt.
If you can, it's best to stay indoors and try not to go out. In order to avoid pigment accumulation, sunscreen must also be applied on cloudy days or indoors during the day. Avoid negative effects such as skin aging and pigmentation by wearing sunscreen.
Adverse reactions that may occur when using the Fractional CO2 Laser Machine:
The treatment is still quite painful, and there is still mild or severe pain after applying anesthesia. But generally tolerable. There will also be bursts of burning pain after the treatment, which usually subsides after two or three hours.
Because it is an exfoliation treatment. Therefore, there will be slight swelling, which usually recovers in 1 to 2 days.
Some people have tissue fluid oozing out immediately after the treatment, which is light yellow. Young people are more prone to it because the skin itself has a high water content.
This scab is not as thick and crusty as a bloody scab. It is generally brown and has a thin layer, so when the scab falls off, it is not the kind that falls off in flakes.
It is a normal manifestation of the recovery period. Generally, it will start to redden after the treatment. The scab may be reddish brown, and it will be pink and red after the scab falls off. Generally, it can subside in 2 to 3 weeks, but also in 2 to 3 months, and very few people even reach 6 to 12 months.
◎New whiteheads or acne-like rash:
It is more common in oily skin. It is normal for sebum to protrude after the laser makes micropores in the skin. Therefore, many people have white sebum the next day after finishing. The aseptic inflammation caused by the laser will induce the original dormant acne, which usually recovers within 1 to 2 weeks. Under the guidance of a doctor, some topical ointments can be applied to help recovery.
The incidence rate is not high, and it is generally caused by not paying attention to sun protection after surgery.
The incidence rate is not high, and it is not obvious when it occurs. But some people do have it, usually 3 to 6 months to recover
