Fast-healing, non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments
Co2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing at Marsh Medical Skin Clinic
The Co2 Fractional Laser one of the latest advances in non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments. At Marsh Medical Skin Clinic we use the 3D Vjuve (Visual Rejuvenation Fractional Laser). The new “fractional” technology treats only a portion of the skin, leaving healthy intact skin surrounding the treatment area. This allows for fast healing and very safe treatments for all skin types and relatively painless. This Laser treats Acne Scarring, most scars and Stretch Marks.

Extreme risk of laser burn
How does it work?
The Fractional CO2 Laser makes small microscopic holes in the deeper layers of the skin. This process leads to the generation of new, healthy collagen to smooth out the acne scars.
Improvement in acne scars can be seen in as early as one week following the Fractional CO2 laser treatment. The number of treatments required really depends on the severity of your scarring. Improvements in acne scarring will continue for up to 6 months following your course of treatment.
