What to Expect During a CO2 Laser Treatment
During a CO2 laser treatment, you will be asked to lie down on a treatment table. The doctor will then apply a topical anesthetic to your skin. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, the provider will use the laser to remove layers of skin. The treatment may feel like a mild pinch or sting.
Aftercare for a CO2 Laser Treatment
After your CO2 laser treatment, your skin may be red, swollen, and tender. You may also experience some bruising. These side effects are usually temporary and will go away within a few days.
To help your skin heal, you will need to avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. You should also avoid using any products that may irritate your skin, such as retinoids or exfoliants.
