Fractional CO2 Laser Treatments

Fractional CO2 resurfacing can erase years from your face and dramatically improve the appearance of wrinkles and pigment.


  • Small columns of fractionated energy are used to ablate areas of damage. Tiny wounds are made and the surrounding healthy skin helps with healing.
  • By targeting zones deep in the skin as opposed to the entire skin surface, fractional CO2 resurfacing is a one-time, treatment performed with local anesthesia.


  • During the first week following the procedure skin will be raw and sensitive.
  • Although the skin heals within a month, redness can persist for over 6-8 weeks.
