CO2RE Fractional Resurfacing in Latham, NY
What is CO2RE Fractional Resurfacing?
CO2RE fractional resurfacing uses a precise fractional CO2 system to target the surface of the skin as well as deeper layers to provide optimal skin resurfacing and improvements. CO2RE fractional resurfacing provides improved skin tone and texture, reduces the appearance of age spots, sun damage, other discoloration, and smooths out fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring.
Who is a Candidate?
Those who wish to improve their skin at and beyond the surface can benefit from CO2RE fractional resurfacing. Those over the age of 30 often turn to treatment for younger looking and feeling skin. Fractional resurfacing is an effective option for those looking for a deep rejuvenation with less downtime required.
Prior to treatment, the skin will be cleansed and a topical numbing solution will be applied to increase your comfort. Eyewear will be provided to protect your eyes during treatment. A hand-held applicator will then be used to target areas of blemishes and surrounding tissue to stimulate new collagen production.
Results and Recovery
There are 1-2 weeks of recovery time associated with the CO2RE fractional laser, so patients need to adjust their schedules accordingly. Common side effects include redness, peeling, swelling and mild stinging similar to a sunburn.
In the week following treatment, your skin will naturally peel to reveal the new surface of your skin. Even more improvement will develop over the next few months as your skin’s collagen production increases for stronger, younger-looking skin. Generally, just one treatment session is required to yield effective, lasting results.
