Fractional co2 laser

Several modalities can be used to remove growths on the face, and these growths include enlarged sweat glands, or syringomas. These modalities include radiofrequency needle devices and CO2 lasers. While these lesions can be removed in one to two sessions of laser sessions, t...

This is a very good question. The answer is: Yes. It is safe to do lasers like fractional co2 or infini even while on Accutane. The latest research published in February 2018 concluded that "a 6-month delay is not necessary for all procedures" . A US research study publishe...

It depends on what sort of “facial” are you talking about. If the facial has extractions, eg. dermabrasions (meaning the top skin layer is mildly damaged ), it’s best to wait 7-14 days for the skin to reform and repair before undergoing a fractional co2 treatment...
