Co2 Fractional Laser

What is the CO2 fractional Laser?

The CO2 laser (Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation). The CO2 Laser removes unwanted tissue, such as scarred, lined, wrinkled, and otherwise imperfect skin. The laser vaporizes skin cells by emitting bursts of radiation that are absorbed by the water in these cells.

Is there down-time?

The initial redness fades in a few weeks to a light pink. Results are improvements rather than total corrections.

Will it be painful?

The procedure is uncomfortable, however, the pain only lasts about 72 hours or less.

Please Note: This procedure might have patients that will not be candidates. Please come in for your complimentary consultation.
