CO2 Laser Resurfacing


One of the top anti-aging treatments in the world, the fractional CO2 laser has a place in everyone’s skincare regimen. It delivers powerful skin smoothing and regenerative benefits, and has the ability to restore a beautiful facial appearance that looks and feels incredibly youthful.

What is CO2 laser resurfacing?

In general, laser resurfacing involves removing the damaged outer layer of your skin, so a fresh layer can emerge.

The earliest versions of this treatment were very harsh and caused substantial damage to your skin. In addition, they were associated with a lengthy recovery period and a heightened risk of complications. However, even with these drawbacks, the procedure still produced incredible results.

With the fractional CO2 laser, patients receive all the advantages of traditional laser resurfacing, but without the complications, pain and downtime. As such, it’s a less intensive but equally effective way to treat skin imperfections and enhance your facial appearance. Although there is still some downtime, it’s much quicker and more comfortable, and there are less risks and side effects involved.

What can CO2 laser resurfacing accomplish?

Designed to treat skin imperfections on the face, neck, chest and hands, CO2 laser resurfacing is an extremely versatile procedure. When performed by one of our highly skilled dermatologic surgeons at The Roxbury Institute, the procedure has the ability to improve a wide range of common skin issues, including:

  • Sun damage
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Scars
  • Age spots
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Skin texture irregularities

What to expect during your procedure

Your CO2 laser resurfacing procedure will be performed entirely in one of our soothing treatment rooms. We will begin by cleansing your skin, applying a local anesthetic and giving you eyewear to protect you from the light of the laser. We will then apply the laser to your treatment areas, carefully removing damaged skin cells while heating the deepest layers of your skin to promote the growth of fresh, healing collagen. Thanks to the local anesthetic, you can expect this process to be completely comfortable and virtually pain-free.

Once the procedure is complete, you will begin the recovery period. This healing process is critically important, because it’s when your new skin grows in and your beautiful results appear. You can expect the entire recovery process to last a couple of weeks, during which time your skin will appear red and flaky while the damaged outer layer falls off and a fresh, smooth and visibly less damaged layer emerges.
