CO2 and RF for Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing
Laser and Skin Clinic are excited to announce the arrival of our new, state of the art, ‘Smartxide’ LASER, the first of its kind to be in service locally.
This machine combines Carbon Dioxide LASER technology with Radiofrequency
Coagulation (RF), adding to our capabilities in treating skin, mouth and genital
Differing combinations of energy transfer from the machine to the treated area
enable a broad range of treatment options from Dermatological Surgery
removing (ablation) lumps, bumps and other anomalies to skin rejuvenation
(fractionation) tightening and lifting the treated area; for example, creating a
more youthful facial skin appearance with reduction in wrinkles (rhytids) and a
gentle lifting effect.
When used for ablation the machine acts as a ‘hot scalpel’ for cutting; or as a tool
for vaporizing the surface of the treated area. When used in fractionation mode,
as an instrument of rejuvenation, the LASER creates micro-wounds in the skin
stimulating new skin cell growth and collagen formation enhancing skin tone
and softness; whilst RF gently heats and shrinks the tissue resulting in a lifting
Combining LASER energy with RF reduces the overall energy applied to skin
resulting in less pain and redness with reduced post treatment down-time
and a faster overall healing when compared to conventional LASER only
machines. Precision limits scarring.
