What to Expect After Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing:

Following our resurfacing skin treatment, treated areas should be kept clean and out of the sun as sunlight and environmental toxins can irritate and cause damage to healing skin. After treatment, you will have some mild redness and a sensation similar to sunburn for 1-2 days. Cold compresses can help alleviate any discomfort.

In addition to avoiding exposure to sunlight, hot water should not be used to wash the face for the first 2 days. Wait at least 10 hours following treatment to wash your face, and avoid products that may cause irritation. Stick to mild soaps that do NOT exfoliate. Pat-dry the face gently and avoid wearing makeup for 4-5 days while the skin heals.

Once the skin has healed you will be left with a new, soft complexion. The Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing procedure acts on the top layer of skin cells to reveal the underlying dermis. In the process, the underlying layer of skin regenerates collagen and stimulates growth of a healthy new top layer of skin leading to younger skin and improved appearance.
