What is a Fractional CO2 Laser and What Can It Treat?

Lots of skincare products claim to help you get a brighter, more radiant complexion – but when it comes down to it, a lot more fail to deliver.

That’s because skincare products can’t necessarily go past that first dermal layer. And unfortunately, it’s our subdermal tissue where a lot of skin issues and complexion concerns start. 

So if you want to treat your biggest skin concerns, it’s time to go deeper into the dermis with fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatments.

Let’s learn more about this treatment, including what a fractional CO2 laser treatment is and what it can treat!

What is a Fractional CO2 Laser?

A fractional CO2 laser is a cosmetic treatment that focuses on delivering a “peel”-like experience, all by creating microscopic injuries within the dermal tissue. These micro-channels help stimulate the body’s collagen and elastin production, which is essential for:

  • Speeding up cellular turnover
  • Improving skin thickness and firmness
  • Reducing wrinkles and fine lines
  • Treating skin sagging
  • Minimizing hyperpigmentation and scarring 
  • And more

Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing can be customized to achieve a patient’s desired results. For example, a “light” peel can help treat skin tone and texture issues, while a deeper peel can treat moderate wrinkles and sagging skin.

At Twin Ports Dermatology, our Dermatology Providers use CO2RE laser resurfacing technology to deliver our treatments. The CO2RE Laser is an all-in-one laser system that’s designed to treat all your biggest complexion issues, including:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines

How to Prepare for a Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing Treatment

The best way to prepare for your treatment is to avoid using retinol or any other type of products that could potentially make your skin more sensitive. We recommend stopping use of retinoids about one to two weeks before your laser resurfacing session.

You should also schedule your laser session for a time when you don’t have any acne breakouts or open wounds on your face, as this could potentially interfere with your treatment.
