CO2RE CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
Imagine restoring even tone and texture to your skin, turning back the hands of time by several or more years. If you have sunspots, wrinkles, lines, uneven pigmentation or other aging skin issues, CO2RE® CO2 laser skin resurfacing may be the right treatment to give your skin a more youthful appearance. Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery offers this advanced laser skin treatment at our clinic in Atlanta, one of the best options for reversing skin sun damage and aging issues.
Dr. Benjamin Stong is a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon who has extensive experience and expertise in facial rejuvenation techniques. Dr. Stong has invested in a wide assortment of skin treatment options to give our clients the best treatments to improve their appearance. The CO2RE® CO2 laser skin resurfacing procedure offers the best one-time treatment for addressing several skin conditions at one time. The results can be dramatic, worthwhile for many of our clients that desire to improve the tone and texture of their skin.
How Does CO2RE® Work?
The CO2RE® is a fractional CO2 laser device that can resurface the skin in one treatment. The laser removes targeted skin tissue or cells using a fractionated method while leaving the healthy skin foundation intact. The laser targets darkened spots like freckles, age spots, lentigines or sunspots, removing these darker skin cells. The resurfacing removes older skin cells, triggering a healing response and induced collagen production in the skin that can improve tone, texture and elasticity.
While CO2RE® CO2 laser skin resurfacing is effective, it is more invasive than many other skin treatments. The treatment does remove a significant amount of skin tissue, requiring time to heal after the procedure. Clients will need to have time to recover, usually 7-14 days, while their skin heals from the treatment. However, the benefits of addressing several skin issues with one treatment can make this incredible procedure worthwhile for many of our patients.
What Are the Benefits of a Fractional C02 Laser?
While you can use less invasive treatments to get many of the same benefits as fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing, it can require several different procedures. The benefit of using the CO2RE® skin resurfacing treatment is that most of our patients only need one procedure to address several different skin damage or aging issues. Some of the benefits of fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing include:
- Significant improvement of age spots, freckles and other sun damage
- Improved tone and texture
- More youthful firmness and volume in the skin
- Lines and wrinkles diminished with improved elasticity
- Diminished scars
- Reversing uneven skin coloration
For many of our patients, fractional CO2 laser treatment can make them look many years younger, and delay the need for cosmetic surgical procedures. While downtime is required, it is one of the only skin treatments that can address multiple skin aging issues at once for overall improved and younger-looking skin.
Is CO2RE® Skin Resurfacing Right for You?
Not everyone is a good candidate for CO2RE® CO2 laser skin resurfacing. This treatment is not recommended for darker skin types due to issues with healing and scarring. If you have recently used Accutane, are pregnant or have certain health disorders, Dr. Stong may recommend other treatments more suited for you. However, those who want a single treatment to rejuvenate their skin and can take the time needed for recovery may receive many benefits from fractional CO2 skin resurfacing with our CO2RE® device. The best way to know for sure is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ben Stong to discuss improving your skin’s appearance.
