CO2RE – CO2 Fractional Therapy

Home / Laser Treatments / CO2RE – CO2 Fractional Therapy

CO2RE is a fractional therapy CO2 laser for skin rejuvenation.  Your skin is treated with a matrix of laser light points that vary in intensity, depending on your skin type and desired treatment results.  The result is a treatment that is fast, more comfortable and requires less downtime than traditional resurfacing – enabling you to get back to your daily routine much quicker.

CO2RE has been proven effective in enhancing skin tone and texture, eliminating the effects of the sun and aging on the skin, smoothing out lines, wrinkles, and scars.  Treatments range from mild to aggressive based on the extent of the rejuvenation you’re looking for.

Experience dramatic improvement:

  • Skin tone & texture
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Post-traumatic & acne scars

FAQs About CO2RE

Below are popular questions about CO2RE we receive. If your questions are not listed, please contact us for consultation.

How do I know if the CO2RE treatments are right for me?
Ideal candidates for CO2RE are in their 30’s or older with skin damaged by exposure to the sun, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, discolouration, rough texture, acne scars, and other skin imperfections. It is ideal for anyone seeking younger looking skin without the long downtime associated with conventional resurfacing procedures.
What is the CO2RE procedure like?
You can expect some moderate discomfort during the treatment, but the anaesthetic applied prior to the procedure typically makes any discomfort tolerable. For more aggressive, higher power treatments, your practitioner may recommend an injected anaesthetic, oral pain relievers and/or sedatives during the treatment session. Over-the-counter pain relievers may be taken in the days after the procedure to alleviate any residual discomfort.
Is CO2RE safe?
CO2RE treatments are predictable and effective. You should speak with your practitioner about your complete medical and skin history to minimise the potential for any negative reactions.
How many CO2RE treatments will I need?
Generally you will see the difference you want after only one treatment. In the days after the treatment your skin will gradually look softer, smoother and tighter. The fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and uneven textures will start to show immediate improvement.
How long will the results last?
The durability of the CO2RE results approaches that of surgical procedures. However, there are a number of variables that will determine how long you can expect the results to last including: you health, age, genetics, sun-exposure and how you care for your skin after treatment.
What can I expect after my procedure?
Immediately following the procedure you can expect a sensation similar to a sunburn, lasting several hours. You can expect peeling of dead skin from the treatment area. This is a natural exfoliation process that may last 7-10 days.
Do I need to take any special precautions after treatment?
Your practitioner may recommend a short course of antibiotics to minimise any risk of infection. Use of a moisturiser and sun screen is highly recommended during the healing process and for the weeks and months following treatment.
