Depends on fractional density and skin type for CO2

The density of fractional laser resurfacing and your skin type will play an important part regarding intervals. For fair skin, I usually wait 4-10 weeks, for darker skin types, usually 6-12 weeks. The use of SPF and bleaching agents can also help reduce unwanted pigmentation between treatments. All the best, Dr Davin S. LimĀ

Fractional CO2 after 10 week delay

Yes. My policy is to wait at least 4 weeks between treatments. Having a 10 week interval will in no way compromise your results. Of course, you will want to be very precautions with sun exposure for several weeks after treatments. I hope this helps.
