It can get rid of skin issues like scars, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, resulting in a more youthful and vibrant skin tone.


CO2 laser resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure involving the use of laser technology to target skin imperfections. It is referred to as an ablative treatment because it removes the thin outermost layer of the skin. The procedure also heats the underlying skin layer.

This dual action stimulates the production of collagen and new skin cells, which in turn improves the tone and appearance of the skin.


You are a good candidate for CO2 laser resurfacing if you want to get rid of acne scars, warts, and sun damage. You may also be recommended for this ablative laser treatment if you want to reduce the appearance of age spots and fine lines. It is important that you are in good overall health and have a positive outlook.

You may not be an ideal candidate for CO2 laser treatments if you have a darker skin tone, as the treatment may result in a more uneven complexion. If you have active acne or cold sores, you may not be advised to undergo this procedure.


Your consultation at Robb Facial Plastic Surgery will involve a physical examination of your skin issues and target areas. A skin evaluation will be performed to determine if you are suitable for a CO2 laser resurfacing treatment. Your medical history will be reviewed, including current medications and pre-existing conditions.


The CO2 laser resurfacing treatment begins with cleansing the skin. Then topical anesthesia is applied to minimize potential discomfort during the procedure. The laser is used to treat the target areas. Once the treatment is done, the areas may be dressed with bandages to protect the skin.

The whole process can take about 20 to 30 minutes. The patient will be given care instructions before being sent home.


Following your laser treatment, you may need some downtime for proper recovery, depending on the extent of work done. It can take several days to a few weeks, depending on the body’s natural healing process. You may apply a cold compress or ice pack to reduce the discomfort for the first 24 to 48 hours.

Immediately after the procedure, the skin will feel like it has been sunburnt. Redness, dryness, flaking, and peeling may be experienced in the following days. Apply sunscreen regularly; your new skin will be sensitive for up to a year after your treatment.
