What Is
Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

What Is Morpheus8?What Is Morpheus8?

Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that uses a specialized carbon dioxide (CO2) laser to treat various skin imperfections and rejuvenate the skin’s appearance. This laser technology is known as “fractional” because it treats only a fraction of the skin’s surface while leaving surrounding areas untouched.

It Work?

The CO2 fractional laser resurfacing technique uses laser light energy to create tiny, thermal injuries on the skin’s surface. The technique stimulates collagen production, accelerating the skin’s natural renewal process. It effectively tightens the skin and reduces wrinkles, scars, and sun damage. The result is a smoother and healthier appearance, often complementing facelift procedures for enhanced results.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing Procedure

Before the procedure, you may need to avoid certain skincare products. During the treatment, you will wear special eye protection and a topical anesthetic will be applied for comfort. Dr. Fedok uses advanced laser technologies, including the Alma Hybrid® laser. This technology creates controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural healing process. After the procedure, you can expect some redness, swelling, and a sensation similar to a sunburn. More than one treatment may be required to deliver desired outcomes, with each session lasting 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the treatment area.



The recovery period typically spans around 7 to 10 days. Peeling and crusting of the treated skin are common during the first week, followed by a gradual improvement in appearance. Sun protection and avoidance of direct sunlight are crucial during recovery to prevent hyperpigmentation. After the first week, makeup may be worn to conceal any residual redness. By the second week, most patients resume their normal activities with smoother, revitalized skin. Full results will continue to develop over the following months. Dr. Fedok provides post-care instructions to ensure optimal healing and results.

Risks and Side Effects

Risks and Side Effects

The potential risks and side effects include temporary numbness, discomfort, redness, and swelling. It is common to experience these immediately after the procedure. In rare cases, infection or scarring may occur, emphasizing the importance of adhering to post-care instructions. The treated skin may experience changes in pigmentation, either temporary or permanent. Proper sun protection is essential to minimize this risk. Additionally, patients with a history of keloids or abnormal scarring may be more prone to adverse reactions. Choosing Dr. Fedok and following his guidelines can mitigate these potential complications.
