Fractional CO2 Laser $2000
CO2 laser resurfacing is a more aggressive resurfacing than the erbium laser. While the CO2 laser also removes surface level and moderately deep lines and wrinkles on the face, hands, neck, or chest, this laser is also good for addressing enlarged pores and texture irregularities.
The newest version of CO2 lasering (fractionated CO2) uses very short pulsed light energy (known as ultra-pulse) or continuous light beams that are delivered in a scanning pattern to remove thin layers of skin with minimal heat damage.
*Downtime of 7-14 days
Erbium Laser $800-$1500
Erbium laser resurfacing is designed to remove surface-level and moderately deep lines and wrinkles on the face, hands, neck, or chest. One of the benefits of the erbium laser resurfacing is minimal burning of surrounding tissue. This laser causes fewer side effects such as swelling, bruising, and redness so your recovery time should be faster than with a CO2 laser resurfacing.
*Downtime 5-7 days.
