Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is the latest skin rejuvenation technique being used worldwide to treat a number of skin conditions including Acne scars. The technique removes top damaged layers of skin in a fractionated manner to help improve the skin texture by eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, age spots, uneven skin tone and textural irregularities.

How does fractional CO2 work?

A laser expert or dermatologist will use a hand held device to project laser beams to the areas that need treating. These laser beams will penetrate into the skin causing microscopic wounds in the targeted areas, including the surface of skin as well tissues deep within the dermis. This will induce self recovery in your skin, allowing it to heal quickly. It will also stimulate collagen and elastin production, thus making your skin taut and supple.

Which areas of the body can be treated with Fractional CO2?

Laser skin resurfacing is mostly used to treat facial skin but it can also be used to help treat similar issues on neck and chest. However, the US Food and Drug Administration has not approved it for treating textural or pigmentation problem on hands.

What are the side effects of Fractional CO2 lasers?

When performed by an experienced, board-certified dermatologist, Fractional CO2 is an extremely safe and simple procedure. However, getting the procedure done by an inexperienced doctor or nurse practitioner could cause serious complications, including permanent skin pigmentation (both hyper and hypo-pigmentation). Other common side effects of Fractional CO2 lasers include swelling, redness, itching and burning sensations. Skin burns may also occur but this is very rare and occurs mostly when treating dark or tanned skins.

How to avoid these complications?

If you want to get the most out of this treatment and avoid unwanted complications, go for an experienced board-certified dermatologist with an experience of at least 3 to 5 years. Furthermore, the treatment requires pre and post-procedure care to deliver best results. Follow your dermatologist’s instructions carefully and use the medications as prescribed by the doctor if you want to recover quickly and safely.
