More about CO2RE
What can I expect during treatments?
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, we’ll likely recommend a subcutaneous anesthetic, 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.
During your consultation we’ll go over your complete medical and skin history to minimize the potential for any negative reactions to your CO2RE resurfacing treatment.
What can I expect from the results?
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.* The durability of 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 your health, age and how you care for your skin after treatment.
Immediately following the procedure, you can expect a sensation similar to a sunburn, lasting a few hours. You can expect peeling of dead skin from the treatment area. This is a natural exfoliation process that may last a little over a week. Use of a gentle cleanser (Cetaphil), an occlusive ointment (Aquaphor) and sunscreen is recommended during the healing process and for the weeks and months following treatment.
How do I know if CO2RE treatments are right for me?
Ideal candidates for CO2RE are in their 30s or older with skin damaged by exposure to the sun, age spots, wrinkles, discoloration, rough texture, and other skin imperfections. It is ideal for anyone seeking younger looking skin without the long downtime associated with conventional resurfacing procedures.
