How Long Does Co2 Laser Last?

CO2 laser longevity
One of the greatest advantages of the traditional CO2 laser is its duration of effect. I have been treating patients for 15 years now and I have seen some patients with results lasting nearly that long. To increase the duration of effect, minimize sun exposure, use moisturizers and avoid smoking. Also, if you have acne scarring or very deep skin wrinkles, additional CO2 laser procedures may be required.
