Differences Between Tradtional CO2 Laser and Fractional Laser?


The traditional method of fully ablative CO2 laser treatments is to remove a full layer of skin evenly across a given area which results in significant downtime and risks. Fractional CO2 lasers, as the name implies, only treats a fraction of the skin by producing small holes in the skin, leaving normal skin right next to it. The result is less downtime for the patient, however more treatments are needed to see the same amount of change as a traditional CO2 laser treatment but with much less risk.
