What should I expect during CO2 Fractionated Laser Resurfacing?
Most patients describe a "prickling" sensation during treatment. Topical anesthesia is applied an hour before the procedures. Immediately after the treatment, patients look and feel like they have a slight sunburn.
How does CO2 Fractionated Laser Resurfacing work?
CO2 Fractional Resurfacing treatments targets age spots/sunspots, fine lines around the eyes, and other pigment irregularities such as melasma and uneven skin tone. The treatment uses microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin. Only a fraction of tissue is treated at a time, leaving surrounding tissue intact, resulting in faster healing and results that stem from collagen remodeling. CO2 Fractional Resurfacing is the most aggressive laser treatment we offer but it has impressive anti-aging results. A few days of downtime with some redness and swelling is associated with treatment but the results are long lasting and dramatic.
