The CO2 laser treatment is one of the minimally invasive treatments and provides a particularly gentle yet effective way of renewing the skin and smoothing wrinkles. Possible risks and side effects are comparatively low when the laser is used correctly by trained doctors. Allergic reactions or risks as in surgical procedures can be excluded at a laser treatment.

After the treatment, redness and slight swelling as well as the formation of a crust on the treated skin area are normal and are part of the healing process of the skin like a possible itching. Even superficial, small injuries of the skin that can bleed are harmless. Rarely pigmentary changes of the skin occur, which only disappear again after a few weeks. In rare cases, lip herpes occurs, which is why we recommend taking prophylaxis if you have a tendency to herpes.
