CO2 Fractional Laser

Reduce Facial Flaws with CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a process that targets beams of light on specific sections of the skin to remove damaged layers of the epidermis (outer layer of skin) while heating the dermis layer (the skin underneath) to stimulate new collagen growth. Our C02 laser uses high power, short pulse durations at precise locations to achieve the softest, smoothest and clearest skin possible.

Skin Conditions Improved by CO2 Laser Resurfacing

Our CO2 fractional laser in Aurora can minimize the appearance of:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Scars
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Ruddy or uneven complexion
  • Large pores

Skin Types for CO2 Laser Resurfacing

CO2 laser resurfacing is best for people who have lighter skin types.  There are exceptions, which our licensed esthetician can assess and determine based upon patient’s concern, desired results, lifestyle and medical history.

Recovery Times & Results for Laser Skin Resurfacing

Expect to have skin that looks and feels like a mild sunburn for about a week or two after a CO2 laser treatment. The skin may remain pink or red for several months. Your rate of healing will depend on your own unique skin type and how many areas are treated. Side effects of CO2 laser resurfacing can include swelling, redness, scarring, pigmentation changes or infection. Depending on your aesthetic goals, we may recommend several treatments over the course of the year.
