Fractional CO2 Q & A

What is a fractional CO2 laser?

The fractional CO2 laser combines two types of lasers, a CO2 and Erbium YAG laser, to give your skin a radiant glow and enhance uneven skin texture. This combination of lasers makes the system adaptable, so it can deliver multiple types of treatment within the same session.

The CO2 laser treats scars, sun damage, wrinkles, and eliminates blemishes.

The surface layers of your skin, including mild wrinkles and scars, are affected by the Erbium YAG laser. The energy from this laser reaches your skin’s surface while tiny pulses of light send energy into your skin’s lower layers to stimulate the natural production of collagen, a skin-strengthening compound.

Dr. Morris Ahdoot directs the pulses of light with precision and in a grid, so the laser leaves small areas of skin untreated between each one. This process accelerates your healing time.

What conditions benefit from fractional CO2 resurfacing treatment?

The fractional CO2 resurfacing laser system can treat a wide variety of conditions affecting many parts of your body:

  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage
  • Enlarged pores
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Blotchy skin tone
  • Aging hands

This innovative treatment also tightens sagging skin and enhances uneven skin texture.

What should I expect during a fractional CO2 laser treatment?

Fractional CO2 laser treatments are typically well tolerated, although you may experience mild discomfort. Dr. Ahdoot offers topical anesthesia to help moderate the feeling of intense heat emanated from the laser during a session. Most treatments last no more than one hour.

What are the side effects of fractional CO2 laser treatments?

You may experience minor inflammation, scabbing, and redness immediately after your session, but you should recover from the treatment in less than one week.

Dr. Ahdoot usually advises you to avoid intense physical activity, stay out of direct sunlight for several days after treatment, and apply a strong sunblock to prevent sun damage while you heal.
