CO2RE Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser Skin Resurfacing With Co2Re
The CO2RE is a market leading laser that is very versatile. The settings can be varied enormously, depending on what your skin needs. Broadly speaking we have two different treatment options:
1. Light resurfacing for skin rejuvenation
This is a milder treatment, associated with minimal discomfort. Following the treatment you can expect your skin to look red and sunburnt for three or four days, with some light shedding of skin for around one week and full recovery after a week. This is usually carried out as a course of either 3 or 5 treatments, spaced one month apart.
2. Deeper resurfacing for more advanced sun damage or acne scarring
This is a more intense treatment designed for more severe forms of sun damage or acne scarring. There is more discomfort associated with this treatment and there is a more intense recovery period. The skin will be very red for the first week following treatment, and most people will need at least a week off work following this treatment. After a week there will be some on-going redness, which can persist for up to three months following treatment. After the initial healing period there is a longer term healing process under the skin, characterised by remodelling of collagen, meaning the final results are often not appreciated until three months after treatment. Usually this is a ‘one-off’ treatment, although for more severe forms of acne scarring it may be repeated 2 or 3 times.
