Laser Skin Resurfacing With Co2Re


We offer Co2Re Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments from our clinics in Glasgow and London.

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.
 

The treatment works by burning away the top layers of the skin, resulting in a healing responses.

 
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. 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. More recently the technology has 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 to heal much more rapidly, reducing the downtime and the risk of side effects whilst still achieving excellent results in most cases.
 
The signs of sun damage that are usually improved include:
 

Rough skin texture | Fine lines | Pigmentation | Open pores | Acne or surgical scars

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.
