4 steps of a CO2-laser treatment in Vienna

Consultation on a CO2 laser treatment

A consultation is extremely important because:
- an assessment of the areas to be treated must be carried out
- your wishes and goals are discussed
- realistically achievable results are discussed
- Alternatives and possible combinations are discussed
- Side effects and risks are explained
- a necessary antibiotic and antiviral prophylaxis is explained
- the aftercare is discussed

CO2 laser technology

We use light and laser-based skin resurfacing technologies to optimize your skin tone and texture. This can smooth the skin, improve the complexion and skin elasticity and reduce superficial pigmentation (age or sun spots) and pore size.
At the same time, the body's own collagen production is stimulated and new collagen and elastin fibers are formed.
This also protects your skin against the ageing process. The treatments are safe and effective for suitable skin types.

Aftercare and recovery

You can go home shortly after the treatment. Of course, we will provide you with all the care instructions to take home with you. After the treatment, you may be reddened as if you had sunburn.
Depending on the intensity of the treatment, a feeling of tightness, scaling of the skin and slight crust formation may occur in the first few days afterwards.
This first process is completed after a few days. However, the skin remains sensitive and must be well protected against sunlight and moisturized to avoid pigment shifts.

Result of CO2-laser treatment

The result of the renewal process through laser skin resurfacing becomes more and more apparent in the months following the treatment and is actually complete after approx. 1 year.

As laser skin resurfacing involves the structural reconstruction (neocollagenesis) of the body's own structure, you can expect the effects to last for a very long time. The ageing process of the skin cannot be stopped, but time can be turned back.

CO2 laser Vienna treatment - what you should know!

What happens during CO2 laser treatment?

Fractional ablative technology using a CO2-laser Vienna

The Pixel CO2 laser with 10,600 nm creates microchannels in the skin through targeted, adjustable thermal and ablative effects without damaging the surrounding tissue. The treatment with the Alma® Pixel CO2 laser removes tiny parts of the epidermis and creates microscopic channels deep into the dermis.

This treatment stimulates the formation of new collagen and at the same time, by gently removing the top layer of skin, the complexion becomes more even, pores are reduced and scars are refined. Wrinkles, sun damage and pigmentation can be reduced or eliminated.

By using this state-of-the-art laser system, our patients benefit from a significantly shorter downtime compared to conventional CO2-lasers. The fractional approach also reduces the risk of side effects such as scarring, hypo- and hyperpigmentation, infections and permanent redness.

What side effects and risks can occur with CO2 laser treatment?

Patient safety is my top priority!

The following side effects can occur as a result of laser skin resurfacing:

  • Oozing
  • Crust formation – do not scratch or scrape it off (scar formation)
  • Long-lasting redness, up to 6 months (can be covered with make-up).

If the specified precautionary measures are not observed, there is a risk of:

  • Infection
  • Pigment disorders

What needs to be considered after CO2-laser treatment?

  • Care, healing and anti-inflammatory products: You will receive precise care instructions from us.
  • Swimming pools: avoid swimming pools for two weeks (risk of infection).
  • UV radiation: after treatment, the sun and all UV radiation must be consistently avoided for six months and suitable UV protection must be used (sun protection products 50+, sun hat, covering the treated area/s etc.). Risk of pigment shift.
  • Sauna, hammam, hot baths and anything that leads to increased blood circulation should be avoided for at least two weeks after the treatment.
  • Peelings and cosmetic treatments: no peelings or cosmetic treatments may be carried out in the treatment area before or after the treatment. The period depends on the laser treatment.
  • Hair removal: before and during laser therapy, hair should not be removed from the treated and to be treated body areas using hot wax, depilatory cream, sugaring, plucking or epilation.
  • Avoid rubbing the skin, e.g. with towels, scrubs or massage gloves in the treatment area after the treatment. The duration depends on the type of laser treatment.
