CO2 Fractional Resurfacing Q & A

What is CO2 fractional laser resurfacing?

CO2 fractional laser resurfacing is an advanced skin treatment that can improve the appearance of skin blemishes and visible signs of aging. Using safe, effective CO2 laser technology, the team at Ferguson Family Medicine offers striking improvements in skin tone, texture, and elasticity while addressing many common skin concerns.

Which conditions can be treated with CO2 fractional laser resurfacing?

Fractional laser resurfacing can dramatically improve the appearance of the following: 

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Age spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scars
  • Warts

Laser resurfacing stimulates cellular renewal, resulting in healthier, younger-looking skin that glows with timeless beauty.

How does CO2 fractional laser technology work?

CO2 fractional laser therapy addresses cosmetic concerns using controlled laser energy to create micro-abrasions on your skin. This stimulates your skin’s natural healing response, triggers the production of new collagen and elastin, and promotes cell turnover. 

What should I expect during my procedure?

The laser has precision settings, so your Ferguson Family Medicine expert can target cells in the deeper layers of your skin without harming your skin’s surface. Facial resurfacing and other CO2 fractional laser treatments can take as little as 30 minutes or up to two hours to complete, depending on your individual goals and skin needs. 

Most treatments require topical numbing or local anesthesia. Your provider makes sure you’re relaxed and comfortable and then uses the laser handpiece to deliver laser energy to the target area. 

How long will my recovery take?

After your CO2 fractional laser resurfacing treatment, you may experience some mild swelling or redness for a few days. You’ll need to follow your provider’s instructions for at-home care, which may include topical antibiotic ointments or bandaging.
