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 the more aggressive, higher powered treatments, your practitioner may recommend a subcutaneous anesthetic, oral pain relievers or sedatives during the treatment session.
What can I expect after my procedure?
Immediately following the procedure you can expect a sensation similar to a sunburn, lasting several hours. Peeling of dead skin from the treatment area is anticipated which is a natural exfoliation process that may last 7-10days.
How Fraxel works:
Fraxel is for people who want to look good – and want real results – but don’t want the overly change or extended downtimes that comes with surgery. Fraxel fits into any lifestyle and your current beauty regimen:
- Non-invasive, clinically proven to be safe, easily managed into your routine
- Real change you just can’t get from lotions and creams
- Simple, effective treatment that really reverses signs of aging
Fraxel is the original fractional laser treatment that works below the skin’s surface from the top down, addressing imperfections like fine lines, visible photo aging, wrinkles, scarring and age spots. Fraxel light energy stimulates your skin’s natural collagen, rejuvenating skin cells below the surface to help smooth the creases and pockets that cause wrinkles and scars. Fraxel only treats targeted problem areas – so the results are focused and effective.
Fraxel is effective on:
- Fine lines and wrinkles – like crow’s feet and brow lines
- Surface scarring – erasing effects of acne and other scarring
- Pigmentation – minimizing the appearance of age spots
- Sun damage – helping heal dangerous skin damage
- Actinic Keratosis (AK) – a common pre-cancerous skin condition
How do I know if CO2RE treatments are right for me?
Ideal candidates for CO2RE are in their 30’s or older with skin damaged by exposure to the sun, age spots, fine lines, discoloration, rough texture and other skin imperfections. It is ideal for anyone seeking younger looking skin without the long downtown associated with conventional resurfacing procedures.
Is CO2RE safe?
Yes. You should speak with your practitioner about your complete medical and skin history to minimize the potential of any negative reactions.
How many CO2RE treatments will I need?
Generally you will see the difference you want after one treatment. In the days after the treatment your skin will gradually look softer and smoother. The age spots and uneven texture will start to show immediate improvement.
How much do treatments cost?
Cost depends on the area being treated, the condition being treated and the aggressiveness of the treatments themselves. Speak to one of our practitioners to schedule a complimentary consultation to create a treatment package that best meets your personal needs.
