Our team would be happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns and create a personalized treatment plan to keep you looking and feeling your absolute best.

How does the CO2RE Laser Work?

This integrated laser device can perform both fractional and resurfacing treatments, depending on the exact needs of each patient. Fractional lasers work by creating micro-channels in the dermal layers to trigger collagen production and cell renewal. This approach allows for deeper treatment while minimizing discomfort and downtime for the patient. 

Ablative resurfacing removes dermal tissue in thin, precise layers to reveal smoother, more youthful skin underneath. The process requires anesthetic and downtime, but the results can be quite dramatic and long-lasting.  

What does the CO2RE Laser Treat?

This versatile laser can treat a wide range of concerns, with the ability to customize the procedure to the precise needs of each of our patients. Some of the issues addressed by this device include:

When Will I See Results?

Results will become visible once the skin has healed from the procedure. For light treatments, this may occur within 2-3 days. Deeper treatments may require up to 2 weeks or more of healing before you start to see your improvements come to life. 

How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?

Recovery can vary from a couple of days for a lighter treatment to 2 weeks or more for a more intense procedure. Your doctor will discuss your procedure with you before you undergo treatment so you know what to expect from your healing process. You will also have multiple follow-up visits with your provider to monitor your recovery process.
