CORE® Fractional Laser

CO2RE®  is considered the best single treatment for advanced skin damage and wrinkling. It is the best option for those wishing to get the most results with just one treatment. Just one  CO2RE® treatment makes a DRAMATIC difference in one’s skin appearance. Skin tone, texture, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, sun damage, age spots, skin laxity and uneven coloration improve.

CO2RE® treatments are often performed on the face, neck, chest and hands. Syneron’s Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fractional Laser “CO2RE” resurfaces skin by removing layers of skin tissue in columns leaving surrounding skin undamaged. The result is a treatment that is fast, more comfortable and requires less downtime than traditional resurfacing.

How Do I Know if CO2RE® Treatments Are Right for Me?​

Ideal candidates for  CO2RE® are 30 or older with sun damaged skin, rough texture, or other skin imperfections. Conventional resurfacing procedures can result in lengthy downtime. The  CO2RE® is ideally suited for anyone seeking younger looking skin with less downtime than conventional resurfacing.

What Is the CO2RE® Procedure Like?

Topical anesthetic is applied prior to the procedure. Individual pain thresholds vary widely. Pain medication requirements are assessed during consultations to make best efforts to manage discomfort during and after treatments.

Over the counter pain relievers may be taken in the days following the procedure to alleviate any residual discomfort.

How Many co2re® Treatments Will I Need?​

Generally you will see the difference you are seeking after only one treatment. In the days following treatment, your skin will gradually look softer and smoother. Age spots and uneven textures will show immediate improvement.

How Long Will the Results Last?​

The durability of  CO2RE® results is similar to that of surgical procedures. However, there are a number of variables that will determine how long you can expect the results to last. These variables include your general health and lifestyle, age and how you care for your skin after treatment.

What Can I Expect After My Procedure?​

Following the procedure, you can expect a sunburn sensation, which lasts several hours to a couple of days. You will need to keep your skin moist and hydrated following treatment. Dead skin in the treatment area will peel following treatment and this natural exfoliation process may last 7-10 days. Moisturizers and sunscreen lotion is strongly recommended during the healing process and for the weeks and months following treatment.
