The portable CO2 laser is a carbon dioxide laser used in skin resurfacing. Its effects are close to those of using chemical peels and dermabrasion,except that the laser removes skin layers by vaporization instead of treating with chemicals or a sanding device.

HOW THE CO2 LASER WORKS ?
Your plastic surgeon or dermatologist defines the amount of energy to be transmitted to the skin's surface by the laser beam and at the same time control the depth of penetration.
The CO2 laser system can be used in several ways: "focused" for cutting your skin without bleeding, "defocused" for superficially removing your skin, and "ultra pulsed" for your facial resurfacing. When the CO2 laser is delivering powerful, rapid pulses, your doctor is able to resurface your skin for cosmetic improvement.
WHICH part of skin can be used by the CO2 ?
The CO2 laser is known to be used to treat wrinkles, blotchiness or age spots, and scars from acne or other causes. It can be used on the entire face or specific areas. Certain other characteristics of your skin, such as its thickness and texture, may influence whether you are a good candidate for laser resurfacing. Some patients may benefit from the laser's mild "tightening" effect on the skin, particularly in the lower eyelid area where the skin often becomes some loose as a result of aging.
