What is EC02?

A fractional resurfacing laser is a carbon dioxide laser that precisely removes deep outer layers of damaged skin and stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin underneath. When used by our expert providers, this ablative laser can deliver powerful skin resurfacing outcomes. The CO2 treats a wide range of concerns such as:  fine to moderately deep wrinkles, photodamage, scarring, skin tone, texture, creepiness, and laxity.

How it Works

The eCO2® is an ablative laser that resurfaces damaged skin by selectively targeting a fraction of the skin cells at the treatment site. This process targets damaged cells and stimulate the growth of healthy skin and supportive collagen fibers. As the skin heals, dark spots fade, wrinkles smooth, and skin texture and complexion improve.


After laser treatment, it usually takes about 1 to 2 weeks for your skin to heal. Your skin will be very sensitive during this time. Follow the guidelines provided to help your skin heal and prevent infection.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a CO2 laser treatment take?

The exact time depends on the area being treated; however, it typically takes two hours or less to complete.

Does a co2 laser treatment hurt?

CO2 is the most invasive laser treatment that we have. The CO2 does cause some discomfort, but we ensure that our patients are comfortable throughout the procedure. The sensation often felt is similar to a “pins and needles” sensation.

When will I begin to see results after a CO2 laser treatment?

After your skin heals, which may take up to 3 weeks, patients will experience a period of their skin appearing slightly pink. During this time, you will see improvements in skin texture and tone. Full results can be seen 3-6 months after the initial treatment, once the skin has completely healed.

How long do results from a CO2 laser last?

Improvements from an eCO2 laser treatment can be seen for many years after treatment. Results can be prolonged with diligent use of SPF+, avoided sun exposure, and the correct at-home skin care maintenance.

Is there any downtime associated with an CO2 laser treatment?

Yes, there is downtime associated with a CO2 laser treatment. Plan for 7-10 days for healing before you can go out in public. Your skin will scab and peel 2-7 days after treatment and be pink for 3-4 weeks. The exact healing time varies from person to person.

Are there any side effects or possible risks to a CO2 laser treatment?

Like any medical procedure, there are risks associated with a CO2 laser treatment. During your consultation, your provider will assess to ensure that you are the right candidate for the CO2 laser treatment.
