What is CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
CO2 fractional laser resurfacing is one of the best treatment methods for the skin available. When you consider using this procedure, you may also need to take into account allowing time for healing depending on the extent of the treatment. During your consultation with our experienced medical team, we will evaluate your individual skin condition and discuss your treatment options to determine if this is the right protocol for you.
Prior to your CO2 fractional laser resurfacing treatment, we will properly prepare your skin and make you comfortable. For most patients, the fractional laser resurfacing treatment is tolerable with minor discomfort. Our team has received advanced training on the safe and proper use of this technology, ensuring results you can trust.
Although visible improvement in the treated area can be seen after just one session, multiple sessions may be required for optimal results. To help maintain your results, integrating CO2 fractional laser resurfacing into a long-term treatment plan or with supplemental treatments can help. We will discuss these options during your consultation.
What Can I Expect After CO2 Fractional Laser Treatment?
The level of healing needed after this treatment depends on the depth of the skin correction. The more ablative the laser, the more healing time may be required. After any laser treatment, some level of flushing or redness is common, which means that the skin’s healing process has been stimulated. As the skin heals, imperfections are replaced by healthy, new skin cells, and the end result is smoother, tighter, healthier-looking skin with a natural glow.
