CO₂RE™ is the versatile fractional CO₂RE™ system that enables our physicians to precisely target and effectively treat the skin’s surface, middle and deep dermal levels. The treatment is lighter, faster, and a more versatile solution for skin resurfacing and traditional ablation.

The experience is a dramatic improvement in your skin tone and texture, sun-damaged skin, and age spots. 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 anesthetic applied prior to the procedure typically makes any discomfort tolerable. For more aggressive, higher powered treatments, your physician may recommend a subcutaneous anesthetic during the treatment session. Immediately following the procedure you can expect a sensation similar to sunburn, lasting several hours.

The new epidermal skin usually develops within 24 hours, and may have a bronze tone for a few days. This new skin will flake and exfoliate as new skin cells grow. This is a natural exfoliation process that my last 7 – 10 days. Most patients can return to work and other regular activities about a week after treatment. We will give you specific instructions for recovery after your CO₂RE™ procedure.

How long will the results last?

Generally you will see the difference you want after only one treatment. In the days after the treatment your skin will gradually look softer and smoother. The age spots and uneven textures will start to show immediate improvement. Most patients experience full results three to six months after treatment as the deeper layers of the skin heal. Using a moisturizer and sunscreen is recommended during the healing process and for the weeks and months following treatment as the new skin is sensitive. The durability of CO₂RE™ results approaches that of surgical procedures.
