The ability to treat scars, discoloration, wrinkles, and skin laxity with fractional lasers has grown in leaps and bounds. Fractional CO2 resurfacing has proven to be extremely effective in treating pigmentation and skin laxity. The newest fractional CO2 laser to hit the market is the powerful yet versatile CO2RE from Syneron and Candela. The CO2RE features dual laser waves that can be adjusted to penetrate the skin at both superficial and deep levels simultaneously.

How CO2RE Differs

Almost every medical spa offers a fractional resurfacing procedure – Fraxel, ActiveFX and ProFractional to name a few – but the CO2RE differs by using two types of laser beams that penetrate to different depths – simultaneously. The CO2RE has up to 7 treatment modes to treat a variety of skin issues. The CO2RE offers less discomfort and dramatic results after just one session.

What is CO2RE?

CO2RE is a versatile fractional laser system that enables Dr. Sanovich to precisely target and effectively treat the skin’s surface, middle and deep dermal levels in addition to performing traditional CO2 resurfacing. The treatment is lighter, faster and offers more versatility for skin resurfacing when compared to traditional ablation. CO2RE can treat both superficial and deep layers of skin simultaneously while providing Dr. Sanovich with maximum precision and control when it comes to the intensity of treatment, pattern and depth of ablation.

How do I know if CO2RE treatments are right for me?

Ideal candidates for CO2RE are in their 30s or older with skin damage caused by exposure to the sun, aging, discoloration and other skin imperfections. It is ideal for anyone seeking younger-looking skin without the long downtime associated with conventional resurfacing procedures.

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 very tolerable. For more aggressive, higher powered treatments, Dr. Sanovich may decide to use a subcutaneous anesthetic. Over-the-counter pain relievers may be taken in the days after the procedure to alleviate any residual discomfort.

Is CO2RE safe?

Yes. Dr. Sanovich will talk to you about your medical and skin history to minimize the potential for any negative reactions.

How many CO2RE treatments will I need?

Generally, you will achieve significant improvement after only one treatment. In the days after the treatment, your skin will gradually look softer and smoother. Age spots and uneven skin texture will start to show immediate improvement.

How long will the results last?

The durability of CO2RE results approaches that of surgical procedures. However, there are several variables that will determine how long you can expect the results to last, including your health, age and how well you care for your skin. Dr. Sanovich and staff will be happy to provide you with useful skin care tips to make your results last as long as possible.

What can I expect after my procedure?

Immediately following the procedure, you can expect a heat sensation like sunburn, which may last for several hours. In the days following treatment, you will experience peeling of dead skin from the treatment area(s). This is a natural exfoliation process and may last seven to ten days.

Do I need to take any special precautions after treatment?

Dr. Sanovich may recommend an antiviral medication and/or an antibiotic in the days following treatment. Use of our post care moisturizer (Vaniply/Vanicream) and sunscreen (we will help you choose the appropriate product) is recommended during the healing process and for the weeks/months following treatment.

How much do treatments cost?

Cost depends on the area being treated, the condition being treated and the aggressiveness of the treatments themselves. After a thorough consultation, Dr. Sanovich will create a treatment plan to meet your personal goals. His staff will help you understand your estimate.
