Resurfaced Skin, Restored Confidence

The CO2RE System is a fractional CO2 laser that is highly versatile and designed to treat more than 100 types indications across 10 medical specialties including dermatology, plastic surgery, and gynecology. With precision, this system efficiently treats the skin’s surface, middle, and deep dermal layers in addition to preforming traditional CO2 resurfacing.

This amazing, non-surgical alternative can accomplish excision, incision, ablation, coagulation, and resurfacing of soft tissue. While correcting your indictions, this system will all enhance coagulation, encouraging the new production of collagen and healthy new skin cells. This treatment will leave your skin texture smooth, tone enhanced, and restore your skin confidence to the fullest.


How to Prepare for CO2 Laser Treatment

  • It’s important to care for your skin in the best way before and after your treatment to ensure that you are able to receive the best, long-lasting results. Before your treatment, you should avoid tanning and heavy sun exposure.
  • Consider using a broad-broad-spectrum sunscreen everyday for a few weeks leading up to treatment.
  • Be sure to avoid using any medications that cause photosensitivity (such as doxycycline, minocycline, etc.) for at least 3 days leading up to treatment.
  • Inform your doctor if you have a history of any skin conditions in the treatment area that might effect the treatment.

The Benefits

Fine lines and wrinkles are a product of aging. Lines around the mouth and eyes are great targets for CO2 laser skin treatment. By softening these tell-tale signs of aging, you’ll not only look younger, but your skin will look healthier and smoother.

Past skin trauma can leave dramatic, distinctive scars. These scars can be easily corrected with CO2 laser treatment resulting in smooth, healthy, scar-free skin.

The CO2 laser is not only capable of resurfacing skin but also correcting skin discoloration like the effects of sun and other areas needing corrected pigmentation. By correcting these discolorations, your glowing skin will have enhanced tone and a healthier, younger look and feel.

While collagen is normally lost as we age, and even stops producing once we reach a certain age, the CO2 laser will encourage neocollagenesis, which is the making of new collagen in your skin. This not only significantly reduced wrinkles and sagging skin, it restores natural, younger health in your skin.

What to Expect

It is likely that general or local anesthesia will be used during your treatment. The type of anesthesia will depend on the type of treatment and the treatment area.

During treatment a series of CO2 laser pulses will be directed at the area of treatment. This may take anywhere between 45 minutes to two hours depending on the size and area of treatment.

After the laser resurfacing is complete, a nonstick dressing is applied to the treatment sites for 24 hours.

  • The area will need to be cleaned two to five times a day with saline or diluted vinegar solution.
  • Then a moisturizing ointment (such as Eucerin, Vaselin, Aquaphor, etc.) may be applied. This post treatment care will prevent any scab formation and allow the area to heal in five to 21 days.
