Does it hurt?
You will feel a warm sensation on your skin, but the treatment will not be particularly uncomfortable.
How long is the down time?
Your skin will be red for 24 hours and dryness for 3-4 days, like a mild sunburn.
Does one treatment make a difference?
Yes! This Fraxel light laser will create dramatic changes after just one session.
Is this more effective than Chemical Peeling?
Yes! The CO2 laser influences collagen formation more effectively than Chemical Peeling and resurfaces the outer dermis, meaning overall results are more dramatic.
What is the difference between CO2 Fully Ablative & Non ablative lasers?
Fully ablative is the more aggressive form or CO2 laser that removes the entire epidermis and requires up to 4 weeks recovery. The level of down time is not easy to work into busy day to day life. 3 sessions of non-ablative CO2 at monthly intervals should create very similar results to one fully ablative treatment.
