About CO2 Laser Treatments

CO2 Laser Treatment is a cutting-edge procedure designed to improve skin texture, tone, and overall appearance. Utilizing fractional CO2 laser technology, this resurfacing and skin-tightening treatment targets deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production and promote the growth of healthy skin cells. CO2 lasers are highly effective for treating a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and uneven skin texture. The result is smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.

  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage and age spots
  • Uneven skin texture

Dr. Willis and Leah have been so great to me in my cosmetic surgery experience. They always answer my questions, they are so kind. I couldn’t see myself going to anyone else.

Dr. Willis and his staff were amazing! Very calm, clean and professional atmosphere. They were inviting and attentive. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I went in for a consultation and had my lip filler procedure in the same day. Quick and painless. The results are perfect. I highly recommend Dr.Willis and taking advantage of the referral program. 10/10!

I have had the best experience with Dr. Willis and Leah. I have had filler, Dysport, and I've been under the knife with Dr. Willis and I've been so happy with all of my results. I actually feel like a part of their family, I can call whenever I need anything and they both make me feel like they care about me and my results.

The CO2 Laser Treatment

During the CO2 Laser Treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area to ensure comfort. The laser device is then used to deliver precise energy pulses to the skin, creating microscopic wounds that trigger the body’s natural healing process. This stimulates collagen production and the regeneration of new skin cells. The procedure typically takes about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and the extent of the skin concerns being addressed.


Post-treatment, you may experience redness, swelling, and a sunburn-like sensation, which typically subside within a few days. It’s important to follow our aftercare instructions, which include keeping the skin clean, applying recommended ointments, and avoiding sun exposure. Most patients see significant improvement in their skin’s appearance within a few weeks, with continued enhancement over several months as collagen production increases. Full recovery and optimal results are usually achieved within 3 to 6 months. Patients wishing to maintain their treatment results can schedule maintenance appointments as they see needed.
