Frequently Asked Questions
Does Fractional CO2 require anesthesia?
Yes. While Fractional CO2 is not technically considered a surgical procedure as no incisions are made, anesthesia is still required to ensure patient comfort and safety.
What can I expect in the first few days following my procedure?
Immediately after your treatment, your face will likely feel sunburned. The next two days, your skin will appear almost tanned and will likely be swollen. During days 3 and 4 post-treatment, your skin will begin peeling and swelling will begin to subside.
How can I maximize my results?
You will be provided with specific post-treatment instructions and a kit of products that will not only reduce swelling but also help your body rebuild healthy skin for a younger appearance and even complexion. We encourage each patient to follow a customized skincare regimen under the direction of our Medical Aesthetician and return in 2-3 weeks for an oxygen facial.
