What is Ecoxel CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

Ecoxel CO2 laser resurfacing is one of the most useful tools for treatment of scarring, wrinkles and loose skin.

The fractional handpiece resurfaces skin texture by leaving areas of untouched skin between treated skin columns, ensuring faster healing after each resurfacing procedure. The treated columns level the appearance of uneven skin like scars or wrinkles by collagen stimulation. Results typically take a few weeks to show from the first treatment, and will require a few sessions for optimal results once treatment is commenced.

The general handpiece is used to surgically remove warts/moles/milia/skin tags and other surface lesions. It can also be used for full-field resurfacing.

How does it work?

Ecoxel CO2 is an ablative laser that is well absorbed in water, causing a removal of unwanted parts of the skin (such as scars, wrinkles, unwanted growths) and also a heating effect to stimulate collagenesis and restored skin.

An ablative laser treatment is one of the most reliable and age-old techniques of regaining youthful features and can be used in either full-field resurfacing or fractional resurfacing, depending on the downtime one can afford.

The Ecoxel CO2 laser is a CO2 laser that offers the widest possible range in terms of power- the machine is able to generate very mild to very strong laser beams. While most Co2 lasers have energy settings that start from 15W, the Ecoxel is able to generate laser beams starting from 1W. This means it can be an extremely powerful or gentle laser, depending on requirement. When used for light CO2 peels, it is like having access to an entire range of chemical peels with different strengths. This allows for customised treatments for a whole range of skin concerns.

The Ecoxel is also equipped with ultrapulse, which offers higher energy with shorter pulse. This results in greater effective collagen stimulation with less patient downtime. When used for surgical excision (moles/skin tags), there is minimal charring and lesser side effects than other CO2 machines. When used for fractional resurfacing, the recovery is faster and much less painful as well.

The cost of the treatment depends on the area of concern and the number of treatments needed to achieve the desired results. A personal consultation is necessary so our doctors can advise you with the treatment approach that best suits your case.
