CO2 Laser or Carbon Dioxide Laser
Carbon dioxide (CO2) laser is a device that treats layers of damaged skin such as skin tags, sunspots or warts. The light is absorbed by water molecules and heats up the cells resulting in removal of targeted tissues
The Laser’s Procedure
Local anesthetic is mandatory due to uncomfortable heat. Skin abrasion is expected after the procedure which may last up to a week.
Time required: A few minutes to 1 hour of outpatient visit.
May require more than 1 session depending on treated areas.
Anesthesia: Local, topical or injection
Risks and risk rates vary from patient to patient depending on a range of factors. No two people are alike. The risks listed below are possible risks associated with this type of procedure and are mentioned regardless of how remote the possibility:
Temporary lightening or darkening of treated skin.
Acute sun sensitivity. Increased sensitivity to facial products.
Mild redness in skin that may persist for up to several weeks.
Scars depending on the depth of injury.
How to take care the wound after CO2 Laser?
Keep the wound covered for one day, if possible.
You may bathe or shower after 24 hours. Do not soak the wound.
Apply antibiotic ointment for 1-2 weeks
Don’t remove the scab
It usually takes two to six weeks for the new skin to completely cover the wound. Healing time depends on the size of the wound, where it is and how quickly you heal. It is normal for the wound to get red at the edges and for the new skin to be pink and red. With time, this will fade and become flesh tone or white. Your new skin will be pink for about three months. If the treated area is in the sun, it may dark or burn easily. Use a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher. You should also wear a hat when you are in the sun.
