Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing Procedure
Before your laser skin resurfacing in Newport Beach at our office, you’ll consult our team to assess your specific anatomy and skin type, formulate a customized procedure plan, and address your questions and concerns.
On the day of your treatment, it is best to wear loose and comfortable clothing. A family member or friend should be available to drive you home after the procedure.
Treatment time for patients undergoing fractional CO2 laser resurfacing in the office is about 30 minutes, with 60 minutes of topical numbing before the treatment. Oral pain medication and nerve blocks are also given to improve patient comfort further. Patient comfort is our top priority, so we take every precaution to ensure the procedure is virtually pain-free. Most patients find fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing well worth any mild discomfort they may experience during and after treatment.
