Fractional CO2RE laser Q & A

What is laser facial rejuvenation?

During laser facial rejuvenation, your aesthetic specialist erases from your skin the appearance of various irregularities, imperfections, and treats certain skin conditions.

How does the CO2RE laser work?

The CO2RE laser is a fractional CO2 resurfacing laser that works faster and better than older CO2 laser models. It reduces layers of skin by lightly fracturing them. Highly versatile, it can perform multiple procedures, it can work on multiple skin layers at once, and it encourages new collagen growth as it erases skin.

With the CO2RE laser, practitioners can control the depth, texture, and intensity with which the laser works in order to give you the best treatment possible for your skin. In addition, they can focus on much more specific areas of the skin, and perform ablation with much higher levels of control.

What does the CO2RE laser treat?

Using the CO2RE laser, your practitioner can treat a wide variety of superficial or deep layered skin issues, such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Injury-related scars
  • Uneven skin tone and/or texture
  • Sun damage
  • Skin lesions

Who is a good candidate for treatment with the CO2RE laser?

The only way a professional at Brickell Cosmetic Center can tell you for sure whether you’re a good candidate for treatment is to schedule a consultation. However, in general, treatment with the CO2RE laser works best on any patient who wants to improve the look of their skin. This treatment is a great choice for those looking to experience facial rejuvenation without having to undergo a lengthy procedure or experience a long recovery period.

Are CO2RE laser treatments painful?

During treatment, you may feel mild to moderate pain. However, your practitioner will do everything they can to make your procedure as comfortable as possible. To begin, they generally apply a topical anesthetic. If you are going to undergo a more intense procedure, they may offer sedatives, oral pain medicine, or a subcutaneous anesthesia injection. This will help assuage any serious pain.

Is there downtime after laser skin rejuvenation with the CO2RE? 

Yes. However, CO2RE laser treatments are faster, less painful, and require less recovery time than traditional CO2 laser treatments. You should expect to experience some discomfort, like a sunburn, immediately after the procedure. Then, for the next seven to 10 days, you will experience dead skin facial peeling. This is a natural exfoliation process, so don’t be concerned.

Also, note that while you are healing, it’s imperative that you protect your skin from sun exposure, as it will be much more sensitive. Of course, if anything doesn’t seem normal to you after the procedure, don’t hesitate to call Brickell Cosmetic Center.
