Illumia uses a state of the art CO2 laser called SmartXide2. It is a very special machine and one of the most advanced carbon dioxide lasers in the market. One of the biggest worries following laser resurfacing treatments is the fear of complications such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). This typically happens when the skin is over traumatised and a response to produce more pigmentation is triggered, leading to skin that appears darker.
With Illumia’s CO2, the peak power can be controlled precisely and this greatly helps in minimising complications.
