CO2RE Skin Resurfacing
CO2RE resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that helps to support the skin’s structure and elasticity.
Benefits of CO2RE Skin Resurfacing:
Improves the overall appearance of the skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and age spots.
What happens during CO2RE Skin Resurfacing?
During laser resurfacing, a handheld laser device is used to deliver a concentrated beam of light onto the skin in the targeted area. The laser energy heats up the skin and removes the top layer of damaged skin cells. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia or sedation, depending on the depth of the treatment.
Treatment may take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the size of the treatment area and the extent of the damage.
How soon will I see the results of my treatment?
The results of laser resurfacing can vary depending on your skin condition and treatment goals. In general, patients can expect to see noticeable improvements in their skin within a few weeks to a few months after the procedure.
After laser resurfacing, the treated area may be red and swollen for a few days to a few weeks, depending on the depth of the treatment. As the skin heals, patients may notice a visible improvement in the texture, tone, and overall appearance of their skin. Fine lines and wrinkles may be less noticeable, and hyperpigmentation and sun damage may be reduced.
For optimal results, your provider may recommend multiple treatments spaced several weeks or months apart, depending on your skin condition and treatment goals. It’s important to follow the aftercare instructions your provider gives you to ensure the best possible outcome and to protect the skin from further damage.
