CO2 laser treatment can cause some pain and discomfort during and after the procedure. However, the discomfort can be managed with the use of topical numbing cream, local anesthesia, or sedation.
The recovery time after CO2 laser treatment can vary depending on the depth of the treatment and the area being treated. The treated skin may be red, swollen, and tender for several days after the procedure.
The results of CO2 laser treatment for skin tightening can vary depending on the individual patient and the extent of their treatment. However, in general, the results of CO2 laser treatment can last for several years.
