I had a full-face fractional Co2 laser treatment over a month ago. Now when I smile I have a very noticeable hollow, wrinkly area beneath both eyes. My under-eye area did not have this appearance prior to the Co2 laser treatment. Is there anything that can be done to fix or at least greatly improve this issue? Thank you in advance for any responses.

Wait and see..... collagen takes 3-5 months to remodel
If you are having Fractional CO2, next round ensure that eye shields are in place, then let your specialist treat under your eyes- I would be very surprised if this does not fix your problem.

At one month, you still have swollen inflamed skin that may wrinkle in different ways until swelling resolves. If you haven't already, consider a botox or dysport treatment to allow your skin to continue healing over relaxed muscles. This will help improve your final result, but allow healing to finish before making judgements of the results.
