CO2 Laser Q & A

What is CO2 laser skin resurfacing?

CO2 laser skin resurfacing is an outpatient procedure that improves the health and aesthetic appearance of your skin. It uses targeted carbon dioxide (CO2) energy to address superficial concerns, minimizing the effects of the natural aging process.

What types of issues can CO2 laser skin resurfacing treat?

At Biz MedSpa, the team uses CO2 laser skin resurfacing to treat various skin issues, including:

  • Age spots
  • Scars
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Sagging skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Warts

You might also benefit from CO2 laser skin resurfacing if you have enlarged oil glands that don’t respond to ointments or lotions.

What does CO2 laser skin resurfacing involve?

At Biz MedSpa, CO2 laser skin resurfacing occurs on-site and involves a series of steps:

Step one - Preparing your skin

A few weeks before you undergo CO2 laser skin resurfacing, your provider prepares your skin. To do this, they treat your skin with special products, making it stronger and more tolerant of the CO2 laser.

Step two - Anesthesia and skin cleansing

On the day of your laser surfacing appointment, your provider applies a topical anesthetic to the areas of skin being treated. Once the anesthesia sets in and you’re comfortable, they cleanse your skin of oil, dirt, and bacteria. 

Step three - CO2 laser resurfacing

After cleaning your skin, your provider runs a handheld device over it. The device emits targeted laser energy that heats your skin, encouraging the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are natural proteins responsible for keeping your skin soft and free of blemishes.

Step four - Wrapping the treated areas

Following CO2 laser skin resurfacing, your provider dresses your treatment areas in wraps and antibacterial ointment. Then, they provide aftercare instructions.

What’s recovery like following CO2 laser skin resurfacing?

Following CO2 laser skin resurfacing, you can return to work and other normal activities right away. In the days following treatment, it’s normal for your skin to turn red and scab over. Take your medication as prescribed, avoid direct sunlight, and apply ice packs to reduce swelling.

Will I need more than one CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment?

The number of CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatments you’ll need depends on your age, medical history, and the issues addressed. Minor blemishes often respond to one or two treatments. More extensive wrinkles or scars typically require a series of appointments spaced several weeks or months apart.
