What is Fractional CO2 Laser?

The fractional CO2 laser is a cosmetic treatment that uses a CO2 laser to improve skin appearance. It creates tiny columns of injury to stimulate collagen and elastin production, reducing fine lines and improving texture and tone. It can treat acne scars, age spots, sun damage, and more. Consult a licensed professional to determine if it’s right for you.

FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER IN TORRANCE

Fractional CO2 is a resurfacing method that utilizes laser beams to create zones of heat injury to the skin. Indeed, this is proven to stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin cells to replace old, damaged cells. As a result, this turnover of skin cells produces collagen, which is just accelerated by the body’s natural healing process.

HOW DOES CO2 LASER WORK?

By addressing the skin at the cellular level, we can effectively turn back time on your skin and produce a more youthful and radiant appearance with your natural skin texture. The CO2 laser uses carbon dioxide to evaporate the skin’s top layers. As a result, these dermis layers accumulate damage over the years, usually in the form of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, and scars.

DOES CO2 LASER BOOST COLLAGEN?

By removing these damaged skin layers,  the newly treated skin allows the body to create new skin cells rich in collagen. This process addresses small areas of skin at a time, leaving the surrounding skin and tissue untouched. Therefore, CO2 Laser is one of the best skin tightening solutions for almost all skin tones.

 

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR FRACTIONAL LASER?

A good candidate for CO2 laser is someone with skin concerns such as fine lines, age spots, sun damage, acne scars, or textural irregularities who is in good health and has realistic expectations. Consult a licensed professional to determine if it’s right for you.

DOES CO2 LASER HURT?

Similar to Intense Pulse Light (IPL), your skin will likely look red, peeling, scaley, and tender like a sunburn after your Fraxel treatment. These side effects on the treated area may subside within a few hours or linger for a few days, depending on the depth of your procedure and how your body heals. That is to say; our medical staff will provide you with instructions on how to care for your skin during this vulnerable time. It’s important to keep safe from sun exposure during your recovery period.

 

CO2 LASER DOWNTIME

Skin Works medical staff will provide instructions on how to care for your skin during this vulnerable time, including applications of ice to minimize swelling and topical moisturizers designed to promote healing to the dermis. In conclusion, most patients will not feel comfortable returning to social situations for 3-5 days until these side effects have resolved.

 

HOW MUCH DOES A CO2 LASER COST?

The cost of CO2 laser treatment in Los Angeles can vary based on the clinic location, treatment area, practitioner’s experience, and the extent of treatment. A single session can cost between $1,500 to $5,000 or more. A complete treatment plan, usually multiple sessions, can cost between $3,000 to $10,000. It is recommended to consult a licensed dermatologist or skincare professional for a more accurate cost estimate.

WHAT IS FRActional CO2 laser USED FOR?

Fractional CO2 Laser and ablative laser therapy help rebuild and rejuvenate your skin and, as a result, reduce sun damage, uneven skin tone, unwanted blemishes, fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring.

WHO IS THE IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR CO2 laser?

Individuals who want to treat sun damage, uneven skin type, unwanted blemishes, fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring. At Skin works, an in-office skin assessment will determine which skin types can be treated with a Fractional CO2 Laser. Some skin types must be pre-treated with pigment control products before receiving treatment.

WHO CANNOT RECEIVE A CO2 Laser TREATMENT? What are the side effects of co2 laser?

Individuals who are pregnant, have an active cold sore, or have taken Accutane within the past six months are not the best candidates. Our skilled medical professionals will assess your current health, medical history, and aesthetic goals to determine whether a Fractional CO2 Laser is a good fit for you.

Is co2 laser painful?

A fractional CO2 Laser is a mildly uncomfortable procedure. However, your medical provider can apply a medical-grade topical numbing cream to the treatment site.

WILL I NEED TIME TO RECOVER from fractional CO2 laser? How long does co2 laser resurfacing take to heal?

After your CO2 Laser treatment, your skin will likely look red, peeling, and scaley, and as a result, feel tender like a sunburn. These side effects may subside within a few hours or linger for a few days, depending on the depth of your procedure and how your body heals.

HOW MANY Fractional CO2 laser TREATMENTS WILL I NEED TO GET?

The number of CO2 laser resurfacing and ablative fractional treatments depends on the skin's condition at the treatment time. Therefore, three to five 30-minute sessions at Skin Works Medical Spa are typically sufficient.

HOW OFTEN CAN I GET A FRActional CO2 laserTREATMENT?

Fractional CO2 Laser treatments should be between 4 to 6 weeks apart based on your skin conditions. This is because the skin in the area that's being treated needs to heal in between sessions. Our medical professionals will help you devise a schedule to get maximum results in the shortest time possible.
