Antiaging Breakthrough No. 1: Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing


The antiaging breakthrough of the decade, according to many doctors, is a skin-resurfacing treatment known as CO2 fractional laser therapy. Combining the effectiveness of traditional carbon dioxide lasers -- long thought to be the gold standard in wrinkle removal -- with a new application technique, it delivers powerful results without the traditionally harsh side effects.

Essentially, you are getting all the benefits of laser resurfacing, still the best way to remove wrinkles, but you’re getting it without the downtime and without the horrendous complication rate.

How does it work? The natural aging process, combined with exposure to sun and pollution, destroys collagen -- the main protein of connective tissue that keeps skin plump and line-free. Laser resurfacing uses beamlets of energy light to bore tiny holes in the skin, which works to put the body’s natural collagen production on fast-forward. Here’s what’s new: Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing does this in a way that prevents damage to the top layer of skin, offering maximum results with minimal recovery time.

It is quick, accomplished in one or two sessions, with about four days downtime. Effects are thought to last eight to 10 years.

Common minor side effects for fractional laser resurfacing include redness and swelling that lasts about two days.


Dermamed is pleased to introduce the most effective non surgical treatment for wrinkles and acne scars. This is the first laser system of its kind in the Middle East. It’s an ideal solution to enhance your youthful and healthy appearance without injections, surgery, scars or general anesthesia.

How does it work?

The technology behind this treatment is revolutionary as the results it can deliver. It stimulates the body’s own natural healing process which replaces damaged skin with fresh, glowing and healthy skin.

What to expect after treatment?

Immediately, the surface of your skin will tone evenly, feel softer and look brighter. In addition, progressive results occur over the next three to six months as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal. The fractional CO2 laser has revolutionized the treatment for acne scars and dilated pores. It has successfully become the gold standard today awarding you the results that you only dreamed of years ago without any undesired side effects. This is a safe, non-invasive treatment that is effective for all skin types.
