Benefits of CO2 fractional lasers gaining more attention

Plastic surgeons are reporting good experiences with the new class of CO2 fractional lasers, saying this recent technology offers all the benefits that surgeons know from years of working with CO2 lasers but with essentially none of the drawbacks of the older devices.

Fractional CO2 lasers, which have been on the market for about two years now, address many of the problems found with the CO2 lasers first used about 15 years ago, says David J. Goldberg, MD, JD, a clinical professor of dermatology and director of laser research at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and adjunct professor of law at Fordham Law School, both in New York City.
