The CO2 Laser system is one of the most effective for skin and face problems, such as acne scars, wrinkles, and conditions such as blemishes and others.

The system employs laser pulses modulated by a CO2 or carbon dioxide gas, which allows it to enhance its effectiveness.

The laser pulses are delivered to the indicated layers of the skin to destroy damaged cells.

Besides, the laser generates collagen, the substance that produces new and healthy skin.

The results of the CO2 laser treatment are outstanding!

Why does skin color matter in laser treatment?

All laser systems, even those that do not use carbon dioxide, aim to generate a response in the skin to regenerate damaged cells.

However, skin color is important because skin reacts differently to heat depending on its tone or color.

Melamine is an element present in the skin whose function is to retain, block or let through light and heat signals.

This biological condition allows the laser energy to penetrate differently in each kind of skin.

Even the color of the hair or body hair alters the intensity that the cells receive the laser energy signals.

The presence of other colors changes the Laser effects. Such as skin tanning due to sun exposure and tattoos, whose color makes the skin react differently to light stimulation. In that case, skin blemishes, such as freckles or others, must receive different pulses to react.

In the case of dark-colored skin, the emission of laser energy must be higher than in white skin. It’s also relevant in the case of people whose skin is tanned.

How is the different coloration solved?

In dark skin treatment, the doctors modulate the energy using the CO2 Laser system. In this case, the exposure of the laser current to carbon dioxide allows for regulating the intensity and frequency of the heat.

The pigmentation of the skin does not prevent a successful treatment with the CO2 Laser treatment.

In the case of the treatment of acne scars, the CO2 laser is one of the most effective in the case of dark skin. The receptivity of this type of skin to the treatment is very favorable,

These results are better in cases where a low-intensity and long-exposure treatment in different sessions.

The objective is not to damage the skin and to allow shorter recovery times.
