One of the greatest breakthroughs in modern aesthetic medical technology was the development of the fractional CO2 laser. It combines the power of traditional carbon dioxide laser treatment with a revolutionary new delivery method to avoid harsh side effects.
What is Fractional CO2?
You may be familiar with the original CO2 laser resurfacing treatments. They had the capacity to achieve amazing results, erasing signs of aging, improving skin texture, and providing a healthful, youthful glow. Unfortunately, the treatment was quite uncomfortable, and the recovery was extensive. Fractional CO2 is the next generation of CO2 treatment, delivering the same delightful results without the extreme discomfort and extended downtime.
How It is Used?
Fractional CO2 laser treatment, performed by Dr. Z, is used to remove wrinkles, refine texture, reduce pore size, and eliminate brown spots. This is the gold standard for overall surface rejuvenation. Dr. Z has also developed techniques that minimize discomfort and bruising while maximizing results. She is on the forefront of developing new products and techniques including areas that are often overlooked such as the ear lobes and hands.
CO2RE Laser "Gold Standard for Wrinkle Reduction"
CO2RE Laser treatments use a non-surgical fractional CO2 laser to resurface your skin, targeting and diminishing signs of aging. Which includes lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, sagging skin, and scars.
This technology delivers thousands of microscopic beams, treating a fraction of the skin at a time. The treatment stimulates collagen and healthy skin cell production with less downtime compared to other laser treatments.
In the hands of your skilled Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery laser professional, CO2RE treatments can be customized – with adjustments to laser strength, penetration depth, density and patterns of treatment – to address your specific skin type and to achieve the goals most important to you.
Systematic Approach Customized for Your Needs
- CO2RE System - Light
- With this setting, CO2RE provides a refreshed complexion, targeting only the outer layer of the skin.
- CO2RE System - Mid
- To improve skin tone and texture, the Mid setting might be used. This delivers the laser treatment to the epidermis and dermis, the two top layers of skin.
- CO2RE System - Deep
- This setting is used to improve scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and reaches beyond the dermis.
- CO2RE System - Fusion
- For the greatest results on texture variations, as well as those fine lines and wrinkles, the fusion feature can be used, which combines the Mid and Deep features.
About Your Co2RE™ Laser Treatments
The time it takes to perform CO2RE™ treatments varies depending on the settings needed to attain your desired results. However, good results are often achieved in just one treatment.
After treatment your skin will be red and slightly swollen. Plan on about one or two weeks of downtime as your skin recovers from this laser treatment, after which you may return to your normal activities. Your provider will give you more details.
