The Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment

If you’re after smoother, firmer and more even-looking skin; Fractional CO2 Laser is your new best friend.

Treating microscopic areas of skin at a time, Fractional CO2 Laser works by passing concentrated pulses of a fractional carbon dioxide laser into the deeper layers of the skin, triggering the skin’s natural healing process. This power facial treatment will train your skin to renew and come back ever so glowing, firmer and smoother than it looked before!


The benefits of this treatment include reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promotes smoother skin and a more even skin tone and texture, reduces the appearance of pigmentation and scarring, including acne scarring, and last but not least, corrects the signs of ageing making you look like you’ve just had the ultimate skin refresh.

Who is this treatment best suited for?

This treatment is more of an advanced one, so it is ideal for customers who are concerned with treating the signs of ageing, skin texture and tone. Age is not such a factor with this treatment as the benefits are plenty!

Where can I get this facial done?

Caci offers Fractional CO2 Laser treatments on its own or as part of their Reformaskin membership and payment plan.

The Healing Process

The healing process is the best part of this treatment as new healthy collagen is formed while your cells renew. After the treatment is done, you will notice evenly spaced micro-wounds of tiny dots on your skin. Immediately after your treatment, your skin will feel sensitive and hot. It is important to stay out of the sun and follow your treatment provider’s advice to protect your skin and speed up the healing process. After a week, you may see redness and slight swelling which is completely normal and only temporary.

When will I start to see results?

This treatment is no temporary fix; it delivers real, lasting results; the team at Caci recommends having 4-5 treatments every 4 or 5 weeks to ensure long-lasting results. As part of the Reformaskin membership, your Registered Nurse (that’s right a Nurse carries out this treatment) at Caci will also guide you through an at home skincare routine to assure that you get the best results from your treatments. After your skin has healed, you will already start to see your skin regenerate and renew giving you a new glow.

How much does it cost?

 A casual Fractional CO2 Laser treatment at Caci is $870. Customers on a Reformaskin membership save on every treatment at Caci, advanced options start from $55 per week with their super convenient payment plan.
