Over time, the appearance of our skin is affected by the cumulative effects of sun exposure, pollution, loss of collagen and moisture, and more. Sublative RF treatments initiate remodelling changes in your skin to mitigate some of these effects.
The Sublative RF treatment delivers bipolar RF energy to the skin in a fractional manner via an array of multi-electrode pins, initiating a healing process and stimulating new skin cell production and collagen and elastin growth. This process resurfaces the skin for an overall improvement in appearance and texture and a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr Mary offers laser skin resurfacing at Cosmetic Medicine Centre using the CO2RE® laser by Candela. 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 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.
CO2RE® may be performed for several reasons, including:
Below are popular questions we receive about CO2 laser.
“Traditional” non-fractionated resurfacing is less-frequently performed these days since the advent of fractionated lasers and radiofrequency devices. It is still used for localised areas such as for leveling suitable raised skin lesions, treating xanthelasmata (cholesterol deposits in eyelids) and selected other indications.
This laser vapourises layers of the skin to produce a more level surface in the case of raised lesions, or a fresh new surface in the case of damaged skin (for instance badly sun-damaged lips). This raw area then needs to heal over.
Local anaesthesia may be used prior to lasering. Vaseline along with a dressing, for suitable areas, is applied after the treatment. This may be changed as required.
By the end of a week, the skin is usually pink but healed. Some areas, such as lips, may take longer.
