Dr. Rizk explains the CO2 Laser


Skin Resurfacing with CO2 Laser


Are you self-conscious about an uneven complexion, sun damage, wrinkles or scars?

Treatment with a fractional CO2 laser (CO2RE) – considered the optimum approach for laser cosmetic surgery – may help to eliminate lines and wrinkles around the eyes, lips, forehead and cheeks. It can also rejuvenate skin that shows signs of damage due to ageing, sun exposure or scarring.

Dr Joseph Rizk, an experienced Plastic Surgeon based in Sydney, specialises in the use of laser resurfacing to improve the appearance of:

  • lines and wrinkles
  • uneven complexions and pigmentation
  • scarring (including acne scarring)
  • sun damage
  • age spots

Laser resurfacing with a fractional C02 laser can be tailored to suit your skin type, and will leave you with younger looking, smoother and softer skin.

Benefits Of Fractional CO2 Laser

Compared with more invasive laser resurfacing devices, a fractional laser only affects a fraction of the skin – delivering tiny pinpoints of laser light to the targeted area. Treatment with a fractional CO2 laser leaves healthy skin within the treated zone, allowing faster healing and reduced recovery time.

Laser Skin Resurfacing is also known as fractional co2 laser treatment. It is a non-surgical treatment for individuals who want to restore or improve their skin texture, remove deep acne scars or increase the thickness and firmness of their skin.

Laser Skin Resurfacing involves the removal of the damaged top layer of the skin. By removing the layer with blemishes, scars and marks, the skin appears renewed and fresh. The effectiveness of fractional laser treatment varies and is based on the current skin condition of the individual. Modern skin conditions such as pigment discolouration, wrinkles and skin texture irregularities may be treated successfully with noticeable improvement after the brief swelling, redness and possible peeling subsides.  

Laser Skin Resurfacing may not be suitable for those with current acne problems, autoimmune disorders or darker skin complexion. If you want smoother, clearer skin and a more refined even skin tone, book a fractional co2 laser consultation with Dr Rizk and his cosmetic professionals today.
