At Bay Medical Aesthetics, we oﬀer Fractional CO2 laser therapy using the DEKA fractional laser. This machine is made in Italy, TGA approved, and is renowned as one of the best in the world. The powerful laser stimulates the production of new skin cells, making it an ideal treatment to address scars, wrinkles, and signs of ageing.
Fractional CO2 laser is considered the gold standard laser treatment for deep wrinkles, photodamage, and depressed scars. It is a versatile technology that is able to penetrate within the deep layers of the skin to form collagen and elastin – which both play a vital role in skin remodelling.
CO2 resurfacing laser treatment creates microscopic laser punctures on the skins surface, promoting microcirculation and new cell genesis. With regular treatment, scar tissue and skin texture is renewed.
These microscopic laser punctures trigger the healing response, resulting in the damaged skin cells renewing through genesis. In the process, skin becomes tighter as collagen production is stimulated. In the months aeer undergoing fractional CO2 laser, your skin will continue to improve. This treatment has the ability to make you look 5 to 10 years younger!
The procedure is safe with a low risk of side eﬀects, all of which are temporary and minor. There is minimal limitation to daily activities, meaning you can resume your day immediately post- treatment. Care must be taken to maintain the skin clean, hydrated and allergen/irritant free.

You may require 3-5 fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatments performed every 2 to 3 months, depending on the severity of the skin condition, type and lifestyle. It’s a perfect treatment that can be maintained once every year.
This procedure can cause mild discomfort. A topical anaesthetic cream is applied 30 minutes before treatment to ensure patient comfort.
Common areas that can be treated with CO2 laser therapy include the face, neck, décolletage and hands.
Prior to your treatment, ‘before’ photographs are captured, and the skin is deeply cleansed. The doctor will skin will examine closely to ensure no sunburn, infections, or suspicious moles. Numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for 30 minutes. Once fully numbed, the cream is removed and the laser treatment is performed, which takes around 30 minutes. Aeer treatment, the skin is cooled with cold towels and gel. Once you are comfortable, a recovery cream will be applied. Post treatment, the skin will appear with mild redness and swelling. There may be a number of microscopic dots on the treated area, which will develop into ﬁne scabs within 1-2 days. The scabs will disappear within 3-4 days, revealing a smoother and clearer complexion. The entire recovery process takes about 3-5 days. During this time, you are advised to regularly apply moisturiser & sunscreen, and stay away from excessive direct sun exposure. You will receive phone-call reviews regularly in the week after treatment, and a face-to-face follow-up review two months after the treatment.
