CO2 (Fractional Ablative)
Laser skin resurfacing treatments are typically performed with a carbon dioxide(CO2), erbium, or Fraxel® laser. These lasers vary in their strength and treatment usages. The CO2 laser provides a more powerful treatment and is therefore used to treat lines and wrinkles that are deeper and more pronounced. Ablative lasers generate beams of coherent light that are absorbed by the body’s tissue as energy. The energy is given through a narrow range of wavelengths, and then, in the target area, the energy causes temperature elevation which results in tissue evaporation or ablation. Ablative lasers effectively treat a broad range of skin conditions by removing all or part of the skin.
The body’s natural healing processes then replace the damaged skin with new and healthy tissue. CO2 lasers have long been considered the industry’s ‘Gold Standard’ for ablation, delivering an exceptional ratio between ablation and coagulation.
Frequently Asked Questions
Any volume that is added to the lip will tend to improve lines near the vermilion border (the border between the red and white skin of the lip).
Downtime after cosmetic procedures is usually a few hours to a day, depending on the specific procedure and areas treated.

Lip augmentation treatments are relatively quick cosmetic procedures. The length of treatment may range from 15 minutes to an hour.
Most patients do not require any time off from work, and may even return to work on the same day. A longer period of recovery may be necessary for combined procedures.
