CO2 Laser

Laser Skin Resurfacing: Out with the old, in with the new!

Carbon dioxide (CO2) laser has the longest wavelength of all the lasers in the market. It is an ablative resurfacing laser that produces controlled skin damage with the removal of the epidermal layer and variable portions of the dermal layer to promote regeneration of skin cells. Its associated residual heating also results in new collagen formation and skin tightening. LUNA CO2 laser can be done in fractional mode or surgical mode to target different skin concerns.

LUNA Fractional CO2 Laser

The fractional mode produces evenly distributed tiny wounds over the skin leaving gaps in between. The untreated part of the skin retains its structures to allow regeneration of new skin cells and has a shorter recovery time as compared to full-field CO2 lasers. It is good for treating deeper wrinkles, more severe textural changes from sun damage, wrinkles, blotchiness, acne scars, and surgical or traumatic scars. It can be used around areas with delicate skin such as the eye area and lips. It can also be used to improve texture, wrinkles, and blotchiness on the neck, chest, arms and legs. Fractional CO2 lasers have also been shown in clinical studies to stimulate hair regrowth, especially when pairing with topical hair boosters to allow better penetration of active ingredients.

LUNA Surgical CO2 Laser

As CO2 lasers are ablative lasers, it has the ability to cut and remove unwanted growths over the skin. CO2 laser vaporizes water within the lesion being treated, resulting in immediate ablation. It can be used on the delicate eyelid skin and around the mouth. It is also a very effective treatment for sun damage and precancerous growths (actinic keratosis). Besides that it is also a very effective way for removing skin tags, moles and warts without leaving scars.

The Benefits

Safe & effective

Its targeted precision treatment allows for effective treatment in reducing scarring from acne and resurfacing aging/sun damaged skin, besides making skin youthful and wrinkle-free. It is able to stimulate the body’s natural collagen renewal process and healing is faster than traditional full field CO2 lasers.


Doctors can provide adjustable treatments to meet individual needs, desired recovery time, and give individual results because the intensity of the treatment can be controlled.

Able to reach delicate areas

With its very fine beam size, it is able to accurately target small lesions like oil seeds and skin tags, and therefore is easy to be used over delicate areas like the undereye and lip area.

Long lasting results

The results from fractional CO2 lasers can be seen in the first session itself when the skin has fully recovered from the downtime, and the ablated layer has fully shed off, revealing a new layer of healthier, smoother skin. Surgical CO2 on the other hand can permanently remove unwanted growth/lesions over the skin in just 1 session.
