CO2 Laser Peel Treatment

With so many different methods to revitalize your facial skin, choosing the right treatment can be a challenge. While many patients opt for the surgical route to address facial imperfections such as wrinkles and lines, others prefer a quick and non-invasive approach. Our non-surgical CO2 laser peel uses cutting-edge carbon dioxide laser technology that refinishes superficially damaged skin by removing layers of the epidermis and stimulating collagen growth in a single treatment.

Your CO2 Laser Peel, What Can It Accomplish?

Eliminates Wrinkles & Fine Lines

Wrinkles and lines that have developed around the mouth, eyes, and other areas of the face are one of the first signs of aging and can tarnish a person’s youthful appearance. Our one-time CO2 laser peel treatment can smooth away these imperfections and produce softer, smoother skin.

Removes Dark Spots & Acne Scars

Excessive exposure to the sun’s harmful rays will not only cause wrinkles to develop but can also lead to blemishes like sunspots and blotchiness. The CO2 laser peel can target these concerns and other pigmentation problems, including acne scars, to provide patients with a smoother, more radiant complexion.

Improves Your Complexion & Self-Esteem

The CO2 laser peel will not only help patients who are struggling with mild to moderate facial imperfections, but it can also restore and improve their confidence. Patients will no longer feel ashamed or embarrassed about their once damaged skin, and they will feel more comfortable and beautiful with their newly rejuvenated complexion.

CO2 Laser Peel Concerns


Following your CO2 laser peel treatment, you will be given specific instructions for how to care for your skin. Swelling and drainage will occur but will resolve after one week. Redness can persist for up to three months following your CO2 laser peel, but makeup can be worn after one week. Make sure you avoid exposure to sunlight as much as possible and use plenty of sunscreen to protect your skin. You will be able to return to work one to two weeks after your treatment.


Because CO2 laser peel treatment does not require any incisions, you can enjoy your newly rejuvenated skin without having to worry about scarring.


You will experience some discomfort following your CO2 laser peel treatment. Dr. Wilson will prescribe you medication to help alleviate this while your skin heals.


CO2 laser peel can cause lightening of the skin and should not be done on people with darker skin pigmentation. Abiding by Dr. Wilson’s skin care recommendations will help minimize CO2 laser peel complications, which are uncommon but can include:

  • Burning
  • Scarring
  • Discoloration
  • Infection


The cost of your CO2 laser peel may vary depending on several factors. Dr. Wilson will provide you with a price sheet during your consultation.

CO2 Laser Peel Frequently Asked Questions in Huntsville, AL

Am I a good candidate for a CO2 laser peel?

Ideal candidates for a CO2 laser peel must be in good health and have skin that has been damaged by the elements, particularly the sun. Patients taking Accutane should be off this acne medication for at least one year prior to laser treatment.

How is a CO2 laser peel performed?

During your CO2 laser peel, a carbon dioxide laser will penetrate the skin at a depth that is determined by the skin’s condition and your desired outcome. The energy from the laser will then vaporize the outer layer of skin and remove imperfections to provide you with clearer and tighter skin.

How long do results last?

CO2 laser peel results are long lasting and can provide you with smoother skin with just one treatment.

What type of anesthesia is used during my treatment?

CO2 laser peel is an ablative laser treatment done in the operating room under general anesthesia.

Is there a less invasive laser treatment option?

Patients who desire a less invasive laser treatment can opt for Fraxel®. This treatment option can be done in office, but it requires multiple treatments to achieve the desired results. Fraxel® is also the better option for people with a darker complexion.
