Fractionated CO2 Resurfacing Laser Maintenance
While we recommend a series of treatments for optimal results, a single treatment session with the Fractionated CO2 Resurfacing Laser can have dramatic results. Prior to your procedure, we will evaluate your priorities and customize the treatment to your goals and expectations. Since this is our most aggressive laser, we will schedule a pre-treatment consult with one of our aesthetic providers to review pre and post-treatment care as well as the optimal skincare products to ensure you have the most positive experience with the least amount of down time.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can co2 laser cause scarring?
Although the Co2 laser is ablative, meaning the top layer(s) of the skin is completely resurfaced, scarring should not be a result of the treatment itself when performed properly by a well-trained provider and when pre- and post-care instructions are followed. Co2 laser is intended to help treat existing scarring and wrinkles and improve skin texture.
Does co2 laser remove scars?
Co2 can help to minimize scarring significantly, as light beams are used to create channels within the deep layers of your skin. These channels help to stimulate the production of new collagen, which helps repair existing damage to the skin and promote a smoother, more uniform appearance to the texture and pigmentation of skin.
How can I speed up healing after co2 laser?
Following your procedure, you will be given specific instructions and a take-home kit to ensure the best possible outcome with optimal healing. Your provider will explain your post-care instructions in depth, and you will be given a step-by-step instruction sheet to take home.
How many co2 laser treatments are needed?
The number if treatments for CO2 laser depends on severity of damage, what concern we are looking to correct, and the individual patient’s response. Although a series of treatments is generally recommended, one single treatment can have dramatic results. During your consultation, your provider will obtain a complete health history and discuss the desired outcome.
Is co2 laser safe?
A CO2 laser treatment is considered safe when performed by a skin care professional and appropriate protocols are treatment post care are followed.
What is laser resurfacing of face?
Laser resurfacing with the Fractionated CO2 Resurfacing Laser can reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone, scarring, moderate lines and wrinkles, and skin irregularities.
What is the difference between ablative and non ablative laser resurfacing?
The difference between ablative, and non-ablative laser treatments is non-ablative laser treatments work by heating the underlying tissue while still keeping the outermost layer of the skin in tact. An ablative laser treatment removes the outermost layer of the skin. We provide both options at Fargo Derm, and can assess you at a consultation to determine which option would be best for you.
Will co2 laser help scars?
The CO2 laser resurfacing treatment is useful to diminish appearance of scars from trauma, acne scarring, textural concerns, and deeper lines and wrinkles.
