FAQ’s – Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
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, smoothes wrinkles, 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 a single more aggressive procedure because the small increase in downtime gives substantially 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.
Is it safe to drive after having a Fractional CO2 laser treatment?
At the laser clinic, we treat clients with fractional CO2 laser from Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Torrance, Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills, and Los Angeles, and considering we use prescription pain medication during the procedure the responsibility of driving should be done by a friend or relative.
How much does fractional laser treatment cost? Fractional CO2 laser price is dependent on the area being treated and the number of procedures required for the desired result. For example, laser treatment of full-face costs $1750. The nurse performing the laser treatment will discuss the estimated cost specific to your concern.
