The Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing System
What is a Fractional CO2 Laser?
The fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing system has the ability to ablate microscopic zones of tissue deep within the dermis as well as treating microscopic zones of tissue on the skin’s surface, leaving “bridges” of untouched skin to aid in the regeneration process.
What are the skin conditions can be treated?
Fractional CO2 resurfacing is effective for the treatment wrinkles, discoloration, scars from acne, burns, and other trauma.
What are the side effects?
Patients may experience redness, swelling, and slight crusting and oozing which usually subsides within 5 to 7. A light pink appearance to the skin may last an additional 7-14 days, but can be camouflaged with make-up.
Infrequently, skin rawness or exacerbation of a pre-existing cold sore can occur. Thus, please inform the doctor before the laser surgery if a history of cold sores exists.
