How does vaginal treatment work?
It concentrates thermal heating of the vaginal tissue inner layers, and induces contraction and regeneration of collagen and elastin in the longer term. This would activate the entire wound healing process of the body's local immune system
The treatment outcome is the complete remodeling of the vaginal tissue, in addition a reestablishment of firm “young like” vaginal tissue embedded with string-like, thick and long collagen fibers
What is Fractional Carbon Dioxide CO2 laser treatment?
The light from a CO2 laser system is highly effective for revitalization of micro-ablative skin. Typically, the CO2 laser beam is pixelated into thousands of small rods of light by the fractional CO2 laser. These micro beams of light hit the layers of skin in depth. They focus at a specific portion of the skin surface at one time this and heals the skin quickly. They help in curing the skin by pushing out the old skin damaged by the sun and replacing it with the fresh skin. The indirect damage from heat help in reducing the production of collagen from the skin.
This treatment tightens the skin and stimulates the natural production of collagen. It also improves the skin tone and texture by reducing the wrinkles, large pores, small and large acne scars and age marks on the hands and face. As a result, you get younger looking and fresher skin.
How long does it for the treatments to show results?
Remember that the fractional CO2 laser treatment can be personalized. Based on your problem the treatments can be deeper and need more downtime to heal properly, or it may not be a deeper treatment and take less time to heal. However, the deeper treatments usually produce better outcomes. But the patients who prefer to have two shallower treatments can avoid a lot of downtime. Deeper treatments usually require a general anesthetic.
It will usually take three to six months to get full results. It may take about 3 to 14 days for your skin to heal after which it may remain pink for a period of four to six weeks. Your skin will look less blotchy and stay smoother during this period. Once the color returns to normal, you will observe less blotches and lines and your skin will glow and appear younger.
Is this treatment effective for acne scars and other scars?
Yes, this treatment has been always very effective for acne scars and other scars. It is as powerful treatment as the old CO2 resurfacing.
How much time does it take to get healed after the treatment?
After going through the treatment, you may feel your skin to be sunburned during the first 24 to 48 hours. You should use ice packs and moisturizing creams for 5 to 10 minutes every hour during the first 5 or 6 hours after the treatment. During first 3-6 weeks your skin will be pink and peel in 2-7 days. However, this time period may vary based on the depth of your treatment. After one week of treatment you can apply make up to cover the pink spots. However, slight bruises may develop on your skin which may take about 2 weeks to heal.
