In fact, the Carbon Dioxide laser is a broad and versatile laser. It is useful to treat various types of skin conditions.

Moreover, it is a unique type of laser. This is because it can be used for resurfacing as well as excisional and incisional procedures.

For instance:

  • Fine lines as well as wrinkles
  • Warts
  • Raised birthmarks
  • Moles
  • Acne scarring
  • Skin ageing
  • Keloid and hypertrophic scars
  • Freckles
  • Lastly, melasma

However, there are certain cases, when the CO2 laser isn’t a good option. For instance:

  • In case of a history of keloids or hypertrophic scars
  • When the patient took retinoids in the previous six months
  • Recent treatment with chemical peels or dermabrasion
  • Active bacterial or viral infection at the treatment site
  • Connective tissue diseases
  • Lastly, HIV or hepatitis C infections

How does the procedure work? 

The laser beam penetrates the superficial layers of the skin. As a result, it reaches the dermis.

As a result, tiny microscopic areas of thermal damage occur.

This, in turn, stimulates cell turnover and new collagen production.

Therefore, it helps replace damaged skin with new cells.

The procedure entails:

  • Cleaning the treatment area.
  • Applying a local anaesthetic to it.
  • Treating each skin lesion individually with the laser.
  • Lastly, bandaging the treated area.

The procedure takes about 30-60 minutes.

Pre and Post-procedure Care

  • Stop smoking for two weeks before and after the procedure.
  • In fact, certain medications like aspirin, ibuprofen, as well as vitamin E need to be discontinued ten days prior.
  • Patients may take antibiotics and antiviral medications before as well as after the procedure.
  • Moreover, the treated area should be clean.
  • Dermatologists prescribe an ointment to prevent scab formation.
  • Putting ice on the areas with swelling, itching or stinging helps.
  • Also, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen.

Side effects 

  1. Contact dermatitis
  2. Perioral dermatitis
  3. Rosacea
  4. Acne
  5. Localized infection
  6. Hypertrophic scarring

The side effects depend on the:

  • Skin condition
  • Skin type & sensitivity
  • The immune response of the patient.

However, one can minimize them with pre and post-procedure care routines.
