FAQs

What is CO2 Laser Treatment?

CO2 Laser Treatment is a cosmetic procedure that uses a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser to resurface the skin, effectively treating various skin concerns such as wrinkles, acne scars, post traumatic scars, and uneven texture.

How does Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment work?

CO2 lasers emit a high-intensity beam of light that vaporizes the outermost layer of skin, stimulating collagen production and healing over few days and regenerating healthier, smoother skin beneath.

What skin concerns can be treated with CO2 Laser Treatment?

The sessions of CO2 laser resurfacing vary with the severity of the case and those of the wrinkles. Light wrinkles may require a session or two. For deep ones, it may take three to five CO2 laser treatment sessions. The number of sessions for deep acne scars and with superficial ones are different.

Is Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment suitable for all skin types?

CO2 Laser Treatment is generally suitable for individuals with lighter skin tones. Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment is more versatile and can be used on a broader range of skin types.

Is CO2 Laser Treatment painful?

While some discomfort is expected during the procedure, topical numbing creams and cooling systems are used to minimize any pain or discomfort.

How many sessions are typically required for CO2 Laser Treatment?

The number of sessions needed varies based on the specific skin concerns and the depth of treatment required. Many patients see significant improvement after 2-3 session.

Are there any potential side effects or risks with CO2 Laser Treatment?
