CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

CO2 fractional laser skin resurfacing removes the top layers of skin tissue, improving overall skin health.

What is it?

CO2 fractional laser skin resurfacing uses your body's natural healing process to improve the appearance of dark spots, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and more. The procedure uses a high-energy light beam to create pinpointed micro-energies in your skin, triggering collagen production to renew your skin. It uses a very short pulsed blue light or continuous blue light beams delivered in a scanning pattern to precisely remove thin layers of the skin. The laser focuses on damaged skin and does not harm surrounding skin. 

What to expect

During treatment, you should expect mild to moderate discomfort from the laser on your skin. Most patients find the discomfort is well-managed with the topical anesthesia we apply. It is common to have redness, swelling and peeling for several days to weeks after treatment. Don't fret, this shedding is your sign that new, collagen-rich cells are replacing the old ones. As your skin's natural healing process takes over, you will see gradual improvements in your skin's texture, tone and appearance. The results are worth the wait.

Depending on the area treated and severity of blemishes, multiple sessions may be required for optimal results. Please note that this treatment requires downtime while your skin is healing. The Buckeye Dermatology team will make sure you have all the information you need for before and after treatment to minimize downtime and maximize results. Learn more by making an appointment at our offices in Dublin, Grove City or Springfield, Ohio to see if you are a good candidate for CO2 fractional laser skin resurfacing.

We would love to get started on a solution that perfectly fits your needs.
