CO2 Laser

CO2 laser treatments are a great option for resolving numerous skin concerns. At MOMADerm in NYC, renowned, board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Charles often utilizes fractional CO2 laser treatments to minimize scars and wrinkles and provide improvements in skin tone and texture.

What Is a CO2 Laser?

A fractional CO2 laser uses tiny beams of concentrated light energy to precisely remove superficial layers of damaged skin. CO2 laser skin resurfacing is particularly helpful when it comes to minimizing signs of aging and correcting pigmentation and textural irregularities, so patients can enjoy smoother skin and a clearer, brighter complexion.

Fractional CO2 laser treatments are used primarily for aesthetic improvement of the skin. However, Dr Charles can also use the laser to assist with drug delivery. This laser-assisted drug therapy is used for scar revision.

Am I a Good Candidate for CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?

This versatile procedure is suitable for patients with skin types 1-4 and can be especially beneficial for correcting discoloration, acne scars, and/or minor skin laxity. A consultation with Dr. Charles is the best way to find out if CO2 laser skin resurfacing is right for you. During your consultation, Dr. Charles will assess your skin and speak with you about your skin rejuvenation goals, so he can determine the safest, most effective care strategy for you.

What to Expect During a CO2 Laser Treatment

Total treatment time is usually one to two hours, including time for topical numbing, which typically takes about 30 minutes. The CO2 laser treatment, itself, can take from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the areas being targeted.

What to Expect After a CO2 Laser Treatment

CO2 laser recovery timelines vary in relation to the intensity of a patient’s treatment. The treated skin may appear pink or red for up to five days after your procedure, depending on the settings used during your treatment. For less intense CO2 laser treatments, patients can expect to need little-to-no downtime. For more intense CO2 laser procedures, recovery can take up to two weeks.

How Much Does CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost?

The price associated with your CO2 laser skin treatment will reflect the specifics of your procedure. Dr. Charles will create your personalized treatment plan during your consultation. The details of your procedure, including cost information, will be reviewed with you at that time.
