What is a Fractional CO2 Laser?
Fractional CO2 Laser is one of the latest innovations of laser skin technology to repair facial skin problems. This technique is suitable for pimple scars, wide pores, smoother facial skin, and brighter facial skin
How do Fractional CO2 Lasers work?
The process of Fractional Laser treatment is to use Fractional Photothemmolysis (FP) by focusing the laser to the specific facial skin cells that need treatment. In this case patients will have some scratches around 10-20% of the area. A fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser and the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing and stimulates new collagen. The benefit of this treatment is better facial skin, tightening pores, reduce wrinkles, brighter skin.
The procedures of Fractional CO2 Laser
Before the performance the patient has to apply the local anesthetic cream in order to avoid pain and to feel more comfortable. After the laser treatment, the patient will have some small scratches around the laser area. These scratches will disappear after 5-7 days. During the recovery period, the patient should apply sun block or other facial skin products. Fractional laser treatment has to keep performed around 4-6 times and each time have to recover for 4-6 week between treatments.
Side effects of Fractional CO2 Laser
Normally this treatment will not have the side effect except for small scratches and this will last only 5-7 days. However for darker skin people this might lead to scarring.

Fractional skin resurfacing has revolutionized skin care and is used to treat a number of skin conditions including:
- acne scar
- “crepey” skin texture
- fine lines and wrinkles
- loss of skin elasticity
- skin discolorations
- stretch marks
- sun damaged skin
- surgical or traumatic scars
The essence of fractional laser therapy is that only selected areas of the damaged skin are treated. The treated skin area rapidly recovers with newer skin and healthy tissue. When therapy is done in fractions, this allows the skin to rapidly recover with little downtime. Further the side effects with this type of therapy are less and complications are very rare. In most cases, the old damaged skin is replaced by the new skin within a few day.
Unlike other types of laser skin resurfacing, such as CO2 ablative lasers that require significant downtime, fractional non-ablative laser has no significant downtime. Because fractional laser therapy only treats precise areas of the skin at one time, several treatments are required to treat the entire skin surface. Most individuals require anywhere from 4-6 sessions to treat the damaged skin.
- Minimal downtime
- Treats multiple skin conditions
- Minimal pain during procedure
- Minimized redness or swell
