Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs
What is the DOT Fractional CO2 laser treatment?
The fractional CO2 laser creates thousands of microscopic perforations in the skin to start the healing process which minimizes and improves scars, tightens skin, and stimulates collagen. These micro-injury sites are only 15-20 percent of the treated area leaving a barrier for the healing process to take place faster and with less chance of complications.
How long will the DOT Fractional CO2 laser treatment take?
Most fractional CO2 treatments take approximately 60 minutes. A numbing cream will be applied 60 minutes before the start of the procedure to lessen the stinging effects during the treatment.
Is the DOT Fractional CO2 treatment safe?
Yes. As long as the pre-treatment and post-treatment protocols are followed, side effects are minimal. You can expect your skin to be flushed and red after the fractional laser resurfacing treatment for a period of 5- 7 days which is the normal downtime for this procedure.
How many DOT Fractional CO2 treatments will I need?
At the Laser Image Company, we prefer to administer the procedure into two moderate treatments spaced about 6 – 8 weeks apart. This schedule allows the patient to properly heal and ensure better results.
Will the DOT Fractional CO2 laser treatment hurt?
Most patients say the fractional CO2 treatment feels like a stinging sunburn. The topical numbing agent applied prior to the treatment alleviates most of the discomfort. A sunburn sensation will continue after the treatment in which over-the-counter pain medication is all that is usually needed to make the patient comfortable.
