Fractional CO2 laser (Asclepion Multipulse)
The Fractional CO2 Laser is a versatile laser for dermatological applications. The MultiPulse laser technology is the result of many years of medical experience in the field of surgery and dermatology. The CO2 laser, which became established in surgery over 30 years ago, remains the most versatile and widely used laser in cosmetic surgery today. Its radiation has a thermal effect on the tissue. This results in ablation or vaporization of the tissue - without side effects on the healthy, surrounding area. Due to its high coagulation power, the CO2 laser causes better hemostasis and is therefore preferred when cutting tissue.
What can be treated?
- Disturbing skin changes
- Warts, fibromas
- Skin cancer
- Scars, acne scars
- Wrinkles, skin rejuvenation, skin resurfacing
- Pore reduction
- Actinic cheilitis (incipient skin cancer of the lips)
- Pregnancy or stretch marks
What is the principle of action?
The fractional CO2 laser works in the invisible infrared range (10,400 nanometers). It can gently smooth and firm disturbing skin changes, as well as skin cancer and its precursors such as light damage, and wrinkles, scars and large-pored skin - without visibly damaging the skin surface. The formation of new collagen and skin cells is stimulated.
Treatment principle: The handpiece of the fractional CO2 laser is controlled by a computer but operated by the doctor's hand. This laser does not emit its light energy flatly, but sends its light fractionated (i.e. divided) into a multitude of small light pulses. In doing so, it lasers a large number of microscopically small holes into the surface of the skin under computer control. The natural healing process of the skin is stimulated, new fresh tissue and collagen is built up. The young, newly formed connective tissue cells refresh the skin and give it a healthy and natural appearance.
