skin 6 daysWe have been testing the fractional carbon dioxide lasers on a few patients in the past weeks with some good results so far. We have found that the results have been excellent for skin texture / wrinkles and pigmentation and the downtime is usually less than one week. Overall, the results achieved with such little downtime is a testament to the new technology.

I have posted a picture of my hand 6 days after a single shot of fractional carbon dioxide laser. You can see the columns of laser treatment within the square treatment zone. The skin in between the columns is the skin that is unaffected by the laser, and this helps the skin to regenerate faster. I would expect even faster recovery times for the face – the hands usually take about twice as long to recover from laser treatments normally.
