Can Laser CO2 be used on any skin color?


Come to VIVE Medical Spa in Tijuana and Learn how you can improve your skin and erase imperfections using a CO2 Laser, and how it can be used on any skin color.

The CO2 laser treatment for the skin is one of the best options for the treatment of skin imperfections.

This treatment is applied at VIVE Medical Spa in Tijuana, one of the best beauty and health clinics on the border of Mexico and the United States.

Vive Medical Spa is formed by medical specialists in aesthetic medicine and professionals highly trained in the treatments to obtain the best results.
The CO2 laser system is one of the most effective in the treatment of 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 and generate the production of collagen, the substance that produces new and healthy skin.

The results of the CO2 laser treatment are amazing!

Why does skin color matter in a laser CO2 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 an important element, 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 causes the laser energy to penetrate differently in each type of skin.

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

The presence of other color changes also alters its application. Such as skin tanning due to sun exposure, tattoos, whose color makes the skin react differently to light stimulation, and skin blemishes, such as freckles or others, which must receive different pulses to react correctly.

In the case of dark-colored skin, the emission of laser energy must be more powerful than in white skin, and this is also important in the case of people whose skin color is warm but whose skin is tanned.

How is the different coloration solved?

For dark skin, the pulses can be successfully modulated using the CO2 Laser system, because the exposure of the laser current to carbon dioxide allows the intensity and frequency to be modulated accurately.

The pigmentation of the skin does not prevent a successful treatment with CO2 Laser, but the physician must take into account that another type of laser frequency should be used to obtain the best results.

In the case of the treatment of acne scars, it has been shown that 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 and extraordinary results are achieved.

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

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