CO2 laser is able to simultaneously treat multiple skin disorders, aging skin. It tightens sagging skin and smooths out deep wrinkles and remove acne scars, dark spots.

The laser uses ultra-pulse beam and target the top layers of skin with Carbon Dioxide.

Blood vessels and nerve endings in the new layer of skin tighten as they heal, producing a beautiful texture and bright complexion.

⚠ WARNING!! IF YOU’RE ASIAN, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TRY CO2 LASERS!

YOU MIGHT BE PUTTING YOURSELF AT HIGH THREATENING RISK OF GETTING PIH*! (HYPER-PIGMENTATION)

I’m not saying this to scare you off, but the truth is Asian Skin by nature tends to trap more heat than the caucasians.The ablative C02 laser, a wounding type of laser, gets rid of thin skin layers, so it is capable of damaging skin, leading to melanogenesis’ disruption and excessive fibrosis – two main causes of hyperpigmentation.

The excessive heat delivered by the laser will then trigger the melanocytes to produce even more melanin which forms as pigmentation on the surface layer of the skin.

Having that said, would mean that if you’re Asian…You will be at higher risk of getting PIH Post Inflammatory Hyper-Pigmentation.

C02 laser treatment can make the skin lighter, hypopigmentation, or darker, hyperpigmentation.

If you have darker skin, you will notice it becoming darker. Although this condition can be treated later when the skin has healed with glycolic acid or retinoic acid, it takes longer to heal.

Without even saying, the first condition that you’re trying to get rid of before might just become as worse than ever with C02 laser.

But of course, your doctor might not tell you that.
