CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is a gentler treatment with less downtime. Safe and effective for acne scars, age spots, fine lines, deep wrinkles, uneven skin texture, sun damage and more!
Correct imperfections and create a more youthful, ageless appearance with the magic wand known as the Fractional CO2 laser!
This non-ablative procedure uses a laser, specially made of carbon dioxide, to remove the outer layers of damaged skin. A grid pattern of tiny pulses of light delivers a column of energy that will reach the skin’s deeper dermal layer to stimulate collagen production.
A fractionalized laser beam has an advantage over other laser treatments. Small areas of untreated skin remain between the treated spots to provide the cells and proteins to aid in the healing process. This results in faster healing and reduced downtime.
What to Expect
During our consultation, an estimated number of treatments will be recommended to improve the texture and appearance of your skin. The frequency and total number of CO2 Laser treatments depends on how your skin reacts to each procedure. Patients often have a 7 day healing time. However, the fractional laser is designed to provide the technician with precise control over treatment. Each treatment can be customized for specific requests and preferred downtime.

What does a fractional CO2 laser treat?
Most commonly, the fractional CO2 laser is used to treat acne scars. However, the laser can resolve a wide range of skin problems: fine lines, deep wrinkles, skin tone irregularities, acne scarring, and more. This procedure is also advised for correcting the skin after a “problem” facelift.
Can I treat other parts of my body?
While this procedure is typically focused on facial problems, the laser can be used on the neck, hands, arms, décolleté, and other areas.
What results can I expect?
Some of the benefits of this treatment include: refreshed skin texture, reduction in fine lines and brown age spots, smoother tone and tighter appearance of skin, skin pigmentation correction, and elimination of sunspots and acne scarring.
Are there any side effects?
As with any light treatment, there can be mild, temporary effects. Typically with the CO2 laser you will experience some redness, swelling, and possible oozing for the first 24 hours. Downtime is usually about 7 days.
