What Is CO2 laser skin resurfacing?
CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is an effective and popular treatment to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes and acne scars. With its effective and precise treatment, it can be used on the delicate eyelid skin and around the mouth.

We hear you, and designed the eCO2 Lite resurfacing treatment so that you can reap the benefits of laser resurfacing, but do not have to endure the long recovery time.
eCO2 Lite is a complexion-refining, skin-restoring treatment which is lighter than the deeper, stronger eCO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment. During the treatment, micro-wounds are created in the skin by the laser, allowing your skin to renew itself. All it takes is 3-4 days of mild bronzing before you enjoy smoother, more luminous skin revealing a brand-new you.
Who is a suitable candidate?
People with fine lines or winkles or have shallow scars are generally good candidates for laser resurfacing treatment. This treatment also works very well for people who wish to minimise the appearance of enlarged pores by stimulating the collagen growth.
As laser skin resurfacing laser goes deeper than other laser treatments, it is able to provide better results for deeper wrinkles, scars, and fine lines around the eyes. The laser skin resurfacing laser is suitable for people who are in the 40s to 70s with moderate to serious sun damage with wrinkles.
What kind of results can I expect?
You will see less visible fine lines and wrinkles especially those around the mouth and eyes. Deep-set wrinkles will also soften after a few sessions. When the top layer of the skin has been removed through the skin resurfacing laser, the new skin beneath will reveal a smoother, softer skin with less visible sun damage.
When can I see effects?
CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing can be highly customised according to individual’s preference. The laser settings can be deeper to provide an effective treatment against deeper wrinkles. The downtime depends on the settings of the CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment.
Generally, you can see some immediate results but you won’t be able to observe the full results for the next 6 months.
Any side effects?

- Redness and swelling immediately after the treatment. However, they should resolve in a few days
