Fractional skin resurfacing treatment helps to reclaim your skin’s youthful texture and tone, leaving you with a lasting healthy glow. This approach has been used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and discolorations caused by sun damage, as well as to treat acne scars.
Patients who have had eCO2 fractional skin treatment have reported significant results, often after only a single treatment. Dr. Petroff will work with you to customize a treatment plan specific to your skin and treatment objectives.
There is minimal discomfort with a local anesthetic, and you will see significant skin improvement with only one treatment.

How is fractional skin resurfacing performed?
Fractional skin treatment keeps downtime to a minimum by only treating a “fraction” of the skin’s surface, leaving healthy tissue to assist in the rapid healing process. Within days, new skin takes the place of older, sun-damaged skin. What’s more, the laser stimulates new collagen growth, so you will continue to see improvement in your skin’s texture and tone for up to nine months.
What is recovery from fractional skin resurfacing like?
There is minimal downtime after this procedure compared to traditional resurfacing – usually just 5-7 days.
Following treatment, you will notice some swelling and redness for a few days. Depending on the aggressiveness of your treatment, the redness may last several weeks. Dr. Petroff can suggest gentle makeup that can be applied to cover any redness so that you can quickly resume your regular activities.
After the procedure, you will be given specific instructions on properly maintaining your new appearance. Results from eCO2 resurfacing therapy can be long-term and noticeable.
