CO2 Laser for Acne Scars in Singapore
The gold standard of acne scars treatment – Edge One Fractional CO2 Laser
Acne Scars are formed when skin collagen and tissue are damaged and lost due to the inflammation of acne. At Aesthetics Central, we utilise the Edge One Fractional CO2 Laser to treat acne scars and restore smooth skin to our patients.
How does the CO2 Laser for Acne Scars work?
In CO2 Laser treatment, our main aim is to use the CO2 Laser energy to stimulate collagen production for restoration purposes. During treatment, The Edge One Fractional CO2 Laser machine creates thousands of small microthermal zones in the selected areas to be treated. Every zone has a diameter equivalent to a shaft of a hair with columns extending deep into the dermis, tackling the acne scars at the source. The laser cause harmless micro-inflammation in small areas of the skin, triggering natural repair processes.
The CO2 Laser for acne scars targets areas with old collagen and acne scars, while also triggering natural collagen restoration in healthy skin tissue.
Our Edge One Fractional CO2 Laser treatment has few side effects and less downtime compared to ablative lasers, while still delivering good results!
Why did we choose the Edge One Fractional CO2 Laser machine?
The Edge One Fractional CO2 Laser was introduced in Singapore as the latest generation of CO2 Lasers for acne scars.
Unlike traditional Fractional CO2 Lasers, the Edge One Fractional CO2 Laser manages to reduce post-treatment downtime, all while improving effectiveness! This is achievable by creating extremely tiny beams which causes minimal redness and scabbing.

The Aesthetics Central CO2 Laser treatment experience
Numbing cream is applied before the procedure for approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
Each laser procedure is typically divided into 2 stages. During the first stage, our doctors will use a high-powered setting to target each individual scar. During the next stage, a low-powered setting is used to improve your skin texture and trigger skin rejuvenation. However, the procedure may differ slightly for everyone depending on individual skin conditions.
After the procedure, antibiotic creams, recovery serums and sunblock will be applied before you are discharged. We also recommend bringing these products home to these will speed up recovery and enhance results.
What is the downtime?
Your skin is expected to feel a little red and warm after each procedure. This will resolve between 4 to 7 days.
How quickly can I see results?
First results can be seen in 1 or 2 weeks. The overall effect will improve over time as natural processes kick in and your skin regenerates more collagen.
How many sessions are recommended?
This depends on the severity and types of acne scars. Generally speaking, a minimum of 4 to 5 sessions are needed for optimal results. Treatments are recommended to be done on a monthly basis.
