Delayed healing after CO2 laser resurfacing.

Svedman, Cecilia LU ; Agner, Tove and Esmann, Jorgen (2003) In Journal of Cosmetic & Laser Therapy 5(3-4). p.183-184
Abstract
Skin resurfacing with carbon dioxide (CO2) laser is a currently popular means of improving rhytides and scars of the face. Side effects are few, but delayed healing has been reported due to infections. A case of unexplained slow healing following CO2 laser resurfacing in a previously healthy sixty-seven year old woman is reported. Although healing was extremely delayed, it is important to emphasize that a satisfactory cosmetic response was obtained after 16 months.
