Frequently Asked Questions about Skin Resurfacing with Fractional CO2 Treatment
Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is a non-surgical treatment that uses a laser to deliver energy into the skin to stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage. The laser creates tiny columns of heat in the skin, which trigger the body’s natural healing response and promote the growth of new collagen.
During a fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin to minimize discomfort. The laser is then passed over the skin, delivering energy to the targeted areas. Patients may experience some discomfort during the treatment, but it is generally well-tolerated. After the treatment, patients will need to avoid sunlight and follow a strict skincare regimen to promote healing and reduce the risk of complications.
The results of fractional CO2 laser resurfacing can vary depending on the individual patient and the specific skin concerns being addressed. Some patients may see improvement in their skin within a few days, while others may require multiple treatments to achieve optimal results. It’s important to consult with our trained and experienced medical professional to determine the best treatment plan and expected results for your specific skin concerns.
