CO2RE® Fractional CO2 Skin Resurfacing
THE NEWEST FRACTIONAL LASER FROM SYNERON AND CANDELA, THE CO2RE CAN TREAT WRINKLES AND REJUVENATE SKIN ON THE SUPERFICIAL AND THE DEEP LEVEL.
The ability to treat scars, discoloration, wrinkles, and skin laxity with fractional lasers has grown in leaps and bounds. Fractional CO2 resurfacing has proven to be extremely effective in treating pigmentation and skin laxity. The newest fractional CO2 laser to hit the market is the powerful yet versatile CO2RE from Syneron and Candela. The CO2RE features dual laser waves that can be adjusted to penetrate the skin at both superficial and deep levels simultaneously.
How Fractional Lasers Work
Fractional lasers only treat a fraction of the skin at a time with laser beams but treatment is aggressive. Essentially, the laser drills millions of tiny holes in the skin – vaporizing what it comes in contact with and creating columns into the skin. The minute damage or “wounds” created by the laser force the body to heal with new and healthy skin, after eradicating any previous pigmented or lax skin. The depth of laser penetration determines what is being treated.
How CO2RE Differs
Almost every medical spa offers a fractional resurfacing procedure, but the CO2RE differs by using two types of laser beams that penetrate to different depths – simultaneously. The CO2RE has up to 6 treatment modes to treat a variety of skin issues. The CO2RE offers less discomfort and dramatic results after just one session.
What is CO2RE?
CO2RE is a versatile fractional laser system that enables Dr. Spencer to precisely target and effectively treat the skin’s surface, middle and deep dermal levels in addition to performing traditional CO2 resurfacing. The treatment is lighter, faster and offers more versatility for skin resurfacing when compared to traditional ablation. CO2RE has the ability to treat both superficial and deep layers of skin simultaneously while providing Dr. Spencer with maximum precision and control when it comes to the intensity of treatment, pattern and depth of ablation.
With CO2RE laser skin resurfacing treatment, patients experience improvement in:
- Skin tone and texture
- Sun-damaged skin
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Facial scars
What Can I expect from my procedure?
Recovery time is typically about 7–10 days. Improvements in your skin can continue to be seen for up to 3 months after the treatment as new collagen forms. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Spencer to discuss whether the CO2RE laser is the right treatment to meet your goals.
