The longer wavelength of CO2 laser has higher penetration power, and it can therefore reach deeper cells without harming the epidermal cells. The damaged tissues are destroyed using a laser beam, and then the body heals itself by stimulating collagen production. In this treatment, the ablative laser (CO2) beam is fractionated. The treatment is named ‘fractionated’ CO2 laser treatment because the laser beam is pixelated or fractionated into microscopic beams of smaller fragments that treat small portions of tissues. These multiple microscopic (vertical) areas or small columns of damaged tissues are called microscopic treatment zones (MTZ). The small fragments of energy pass down through the skin to the affected area vertically. The laser beam is absorbed by the tissue and gets converted into heat. Now the affected cells get damaged thermally. MTZ surrounded by undamaged skin gets nutrients for healing since a tissue repair response is induced after laser treatment.
Numbing cream is applied before the treatment. The laser parameters are present according to the depth of scarring tissue. Cooling devices are being used during the treatment, and repeated cooling is provided to relieve the patient from discomfort. This treatment is not painful; only some heating prickling sensations are observed during the laser treatment. As the laser beam reaches deeper tissues to work effectively, one may experience downtime for a few days post-treatment.

The results of DMC-Fraxogenus®, will depend on the type of skin type and also the age and different lifestyle habits of the patient. Appropriate laser settings and precautions are required for Indian skin types.
Younger patients require fewer sessions than the elder ones since their skin has more healing power. This treatment is getting popular among adult men and women as an anti-aging treatment.
