Laser Skin Resurfacing with CO2RE
We offer Co2Re Laser Resurfacing in Glasgow from our clinic — the Aesthetic Medicine Institute
Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure designed to improve the appearance and function of the skin. It is normally used to treat signs of sun damage or scarring, especially old acne scars, but it can also reduce facial wrinkles, age spots, and other skin imperfections on the face and body.
As far as full-face cosmetic treatments go, laser resurfacing is an effective non-surgical procedure with little downtime.

How Does Laser Resurfacing Work?
Laser resurfacing is a skin rejuvenation method. The technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer. A CO2RE laser is used to burn away the top layers of the skin, resulting in healing responses from beneath the skin’s surface. This is because when the skin heals, it normally heals itself to a more youthful and healthy condition.
When laser skin resurfacing was initially developed, the entire surface of the skin was removed during hte procedure. This typically resulted in a long healing period and a high risk of side effects, which caused laser resurfacing to fall out of fashion for a while.
The Introduction of Fractional Laser Technology
More recently, laser resurfacing treatments have progressed with the introduction of ‘fractional’ technology. Fractional technology allows us to treat only a ‘fraction’ of the skin with the use of microscopic laser beams, which leaves behind some normal tissue. Leaving behind this normal tissue allows the skin on the face to heal much more rapidly, reducing the downtime and the risk of side effects whilst still achieving excellent results in most cases.
