The result is a treatment that is fast, more comfortable and requires less downtime than traditional resurfacing – enabling you to get back to your daily routine much quicker.
CO2RE is the versatile fractional CO2 system that enables you to precisely target and effectively treat the skin’s surface, middle, and deep dermal levels. Then seamlessly perform traditional CO2 resurfacing and laser excision of lesions.
CO2RE gives you the ability to treat both superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously with precision-control over the intensity, pattern, and depth of ablation.
Ideal candidates for CO2RE are in their 30’s or older with skin damaged by exposure to the sun, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, rough texture, and other skin imperfections. It is ideal for anyone seeking younger looking skin without the long downtime associated with conventional resurfacing procedures.
You can expect some moderate discomfort during the treatment, but the anesthetic applied prior to the procedure typically makes any discomfort tolerable. For more aggressive, higher power treatments, your practitioner may recommend a subcutaneous anesthetic, oral pain relievers and/or sedatives during the treatment session. Over-the-counter pain relievers may be taken in the days after the procedure to alleviate any residual discomfort.
Yes. You should speak with your practitioner about your complete medical and skin history to minimize the potential for any negative reactions.
The durability of CO2RE results approaches that of surgical procedures. However, there are a number of variables that will determine how long you can expect the results to last including: your health, age and how you care for your skin after treatment.
Immediately following the procedure you can expect a sensation similar to a sunburn, lasting several hours. You can expect peeling of dead skin from the treatment area. This is a natural exfoliation process that may last 7-10 days.
Your practitioner may recommend a short course of antibiotics to minimize any risk of infection. Use of a moisturizer and sun screen is highly recommended during the healing process and for the weeks and months following treatment.
