Before you have any procedure or treatment is important that you do your research. To help you out with this, we have gathered a few independent articles and medical papers to help you make a more informed decision if CO2 laser skin resurfacing is right for you.
A new multi-modal fractional ablative CO2 laser for wrinkle reduction and skin resurfacing.
RESULTS: For all of the analysed skin features of photodamage a significant, statistical improvement was obtained. The data collected with the 3D system demonstrated an average improvement of 42% of the wrinkles and an average improvement of the melanin variation of 40.1%. more
Treatment of acne scars with fractional CO2 laser at 1-month versus 3-month intervals: an intra-individual randomized controlled trial.
CONCLUSIONS: Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing improves atrophic acne scars and a treatment interval of either 1-month or 3-months does not seem to influence the improvement of scar atrophy nor the occurrence of postoperative adverse effects. more
Combined superficial & deep fractional skin treatment for photodamaged skin–a prospective clinical trial
RESULTS: Pre-clinical histologies demonstrated the ability to achieve fractional discrete 1.3-mm-diameter spots of superficial ablation with a uniform shallow and narrow area of coagulation while maintaining the deep, fractional 120-micron-ablation spot capabilities. Histologies of the human tissue confirmed the ability to control both superficial and deep fractional treatment using a single handpiece. Pigmentation was greatly reduced at the 1 month follow-up with significant textural improvement. No unexpected AEs or SAEs were reported more
