At medAge, led by Dr. Laura Ellis, we often receive questions about MiXto SX Micro Fractional CO2 Laser, a popular skin resurfacing treatment for improving skin appearance. 

This procedure uses advanced technology to rejuvenate the skin, and our clients in Asheville, NC, and Greenville, SC, frequently inquire about its benefits and processes.

Here are the top five questions we encounter, along with informative answers to guide you.

1. Does CO2 Laser Tighten the Skin?

Yes, CO2 laser skin resurfacing can tighten the skin. The laser's energy prompts immediate skin contraction and stimulates collagen production, producing firmer and smoother skin.

2. Do You Have Rough Skin After CO2 Laser?

After a CO2 laser treatment, it's common for the skin to feel rough for a period. This is part of the natural healing as the skin rejuvenates and sheds old layers. Proper post-treatment care can help manage this texture change.

3. Can CO2 Laser Be Used on Dark Skin?

CO2 laser treatment can be used on dark skin but requires careful consideration. Darker skin tones tend to have a larger risk of pigmentation changes post-treatment. It's important to consult with a skilled practitioner like Dr. Ellis to assess suitability and customize the treatment.

4. How Long Does Recovery from CO2 Skin Resurfacing Take?

Recovery time depends on the individual and the extent of the treatment. In general, most people expect to return to their normal activities within 5 to 7 days. Complete healing and final results may take a few weeks to develop fully. Learn more about CO2 laser skin treatment recover on this blog

5. What is a "Fractional" CO2 Laser?

"Fractional" refers to the way the laser energy is delivered. Instead of treating the whole skin surface, fractional lasers target only a small fraction of the skin at a time. This approach allows for more precise treatment and quicker recovery while achieving significant skin improvement.
