📢 Important Advisory for Patients Considering Cosmetic/Medical Procedures

Dear Valued Patients,

We believe in providing you with the best care and guidance as you consider cosmetic procedures to enhance your well-being. It is crucial for us to ensure that you are well-informed and understand the nuances of these procedures, including their limitations and potential risks. Please take a moment to read and absorb the following points:

No Guaranteed Outcomes: It is essential to comprehend that no medical treatment or surgery can be guaranteed to result in absolute benefits or complete recovery. We want to emphasize that there are no guarantees of being "cured" or achieving specific outcomes.

Informed Decision Making: Prior to undergoing any cosmetic procedure, we encourage you to educate yourself about the procedure's details, potential risks, and anticipated outcomes. This empowers you to make informed decisions aligned with your personal goals and expectations.

Risk Considerations: No procedure is entirely risk-free. All medical interventions, including cosmetic procedures, carry inherent risks. Understanding and accepting these risks is a vital part of your journey towards achieving your desired results.

Doctor's Skill and Competence: We assure you that our team possesses the necessary expertise and competence in their respective fields. We commit to applying our skills with reasonable care and competence to ensure your safety and well-being.

Timing and Emotional Well-being: Optimal results from cosmetic procedures can be influenced by emotional factors. We recommend considering the timing of your procedure, especially in relation to major life events such as relocation, job changes, bereavement, relationship changes, or the arrival of children. Emotional stability contributes positively to your overall experience.

Your health and satisfaction are our top priorities. By acknowledging these points, you are taking an active role in your journey towards self-enhancement. If you have any questions or concerns, our dedicated team is here to provide you with the guidance you need.

Thank you for trusting us with your care.

How many sessions are required?

The healthier your skin/hair are when starting out, the easier it will take the treatment. The sessions must be spaced to allow adequate healing in between. Skin/Hair that are healthy enough to regenerate fairly quickly will be able to endure more sessions of a treatment in a shorter period of time.

While these aren’t the only factors involved, they are the most common. Don’t be surprised, however, if your doctor mentions another situation that could impact the length and/or number of sessions you may require. Every person is different, and your circumstances will be unique only to YOU.

☑️ Downtime: 2 days

☑️ Procedure Time: 10-15 min

☑️ Anesthesia/Numbing Required: Local Numbing

☑️ Pain Scale: 2

☑️ Next Session Ideally every 7 days

☑️ 95% patients feel improvement in mole reduction in single sessions.

☑️ Aftercare Instructions Provided

Keloids, characterized by excessive scar tissue growth, pose both physical and aesthetic challenges. The CO2 laser has emerged as a potential solution. Let's delve into the evidence surrounding its effectiveness.

Mechanism of Keloid Formation

  • Exaggerated collagen production and deposition.
  • Dysregulation of cytokines, especially TGF-β.

CO2 Laser Treatment

  • Utilizes a 10,600 nm wavelength, absorbed by water.
  • Controlled tissue ablation and remodeling.
  • Selectively targets water-rich tissues.

Clinical Studies

  1. Kuo et al. (2017):

    • CO2 laser vs. corticosteroid injection.
    • CO2 laser group: Higher patient satisfaction, reduced recurrence.
  2. Alster et al. (2007):

    • Fractional CO2 laser therapy.
    • Significant improvement in keloid texture, erythema, and pliability.
  3. Orringer et al. (2014):

    • Systematic review on laser therapies.
    • CO2 laser: Reduced keloid thickness, erythema, more effective in darker skin types.

Mechanisms of Efficacy

  1. Selective Photothermolysis:

    • Precise targeting of water in cells.
    • Controlled tissue vaporization, minimal collateral damage.
  2. Stimulation of Collagen Remodeling:

    • Microthermal zones stimulate wound healing.
    • Deposition of new collagen, organized tissue regeneration.
  3. Thermal Damage:

    • Induces controlled inflammatory response.
    • Promotes macrophage infiltration, fibroblast activation.
    • Breakdown of abnormal collagen, scar tissue remodeling.

Safety and Adverse Effects

  • Generally well-tolerated.
  • Potential adverse effects: temporary erythema, swelling, crusting.
  • Careful patient selection crucial, higher risk of hyperpigmentation in darker skin types.

Conclusion

CO2 laser treatment offers promise for keloid management, leveraging precise ablation and collagen remodeling. Clinical studies support its efficacy in enhancing keloid appearance, reducing size, and boosting patient satisfaction. However, careful patient selection and risk assessment are vital. Further research and long-term studies are needed for a comprehensive understanding of CO2 laser therapy's efficacy and safety.
