What is skin resurfacing using fractional CO2 laser?
By treating deep in the dermis layer as well as the skin’s surface, laser fractional treatments treat only a fraction of the skin, leaving bridges of untouched skin that aid in the healing process and reduce healing times, enabling you to return to normal activities quicker. This technique helps you improve and remove unwanted skin imperfections such as wrinkles, scars, brown spots and more.
Total Solution, One Treatment, Minimal Downtime!
is a revolutionary fractional treatment that combines DeepFX TM
and ActiveFX TM
procedures in 1 treatment with minimal downtime. The procedure consists of 2 steps. 1st
, the DeepFX TM
utilizes very narrow laser micro beams to remove columns of tissue deep into the layers of the skin. The body then heals the channel, which stimulates immediate new collagen growth to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars and fine lines. 2nd
, ActiveFX TM
uses a larger beam to treat the upper layer of skin to remove unwanted pigmentation, promote new skin regeneration, and improve fine lines and skin texture. In only one treatment, UltraPulse TotalFX TM
stimulates collagen growth for up to 6 months.
Why the UltraPulse® Encore Fractional TM CO2 device?
The main difference between the UltraPulse® Fractional CO2 device and other anti-wrinkle treatments is its ability to break up or “fractionate” the beams into many small micro beams, which are separated. When they strike the skin’s surface, there are small areas of the skin between the beams that are not hit by the laser and left intact. Adding to that, most clients who undergo this treatment only require 1 or 2 sessions, compared to the conventional 5 to 15 sessions for laser skin resurfacing.

Is it painful?
It might be a bit uncomfortable for some people. Yet, Silkor’s trained professional will numb your skin with a topical anesthetic 45 minutes before the treatment to avoid discomfort. You will only feel a warm sensation as the laser is applied.
What to expect after the session?
The treated area will be warm and appear sunburnt. You have to stick to a skin care routine in addition to pre & post treatment advice provided by Silkor’s doctor given to you upon a consultation before starting the treatment. Improvements will be noticed upon the healing of the skin after 4 to 10 days noting that the treated skin will continue to improve in up to 6 months.
