Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing in Manhattan Beach at Marcus Medical is an advanced, non-invasive way to achieve smoother, healthier and younger-looking skin.
What to Expect During the Procedure
To begin your procedure, we will first apply a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout the entire treatment. From there, you will be given protective eyewear to guard your eyes from the light of the laser. We will then apply the Fractional CO2 laser to the areas being treated, removing damaged skin cells and promoting the growth of collagen beneath the surface. Depending on the size of the area being treated, you can expect your procedure to take anywhere from thirty minutes to two hours.
What to Expect During Your Recovery
Your recovery period is a vital part of your Fractional CO2 laser procedure, because it’s when your body heals itself and creates a brand new, glowing layer of skin. You can expect the recovery period to last approximately two weeks, during which time you will experience redness and flakiness in the treatment area. This is completely normal, and is in fact how your body heals itself after the procedure to deliver a rejuvenated appearance.
