It is not possible to escape the ill-effects of time, sun, and environmental exposure on the skin, especially the delicate and exposed skin of the face and hands.

CO2RE Laser Skin Resurfacing – Treatment Modes
The CO2RE system consists of six diverse treatment modes for maximum versatility:
CO2RE Light: Suitable for a more superficial treatment targeted at the outer layer of the epidermis.
CO2RE Mid: This treatment offers a slightly stronger fractional ablative effect, going deeper into the dermis.
CO2RE Deep: Goes into the dermis for the deepest fractional ablative effect.
CO2RE Fusion: It is a unique blend of intensity and depth to optimize the treatment of both the dermis and epidermis at the same time.
- A traditional laser resurfacing mode
- An excision mode for minor dermal excisions
How does CO2RE work?
CO2RE offers a multi-wavelength platform meant to target aging and sun-damaged skin by focusing on damaged tissue.
Once the laser beam penetrates to exact depths beneath the surface of the skin, the compromised skin cells are delicately eliminated, and the natural healing response of the body is triggered.
This accelerates the generation of collagen and the development of new, healthy skin cells. This cutting-edge laser technology is capable of targeting and correcting a wide spectrum of skin issues, including damage due to sun exposure.
Dr. Q and her team use the multi-purpose functionality of the CO2RE system to carefully create a skin rejuvenation plan tailored to the patient’s unique needs, including the exact level of ablative and/or non-ablative fractional treatment to accommodate the patient’s personal choice on speed of treatment, downtime, and the number of sessions desired.
Benefits of Laser Resurfacing
Patients typically choose to receive laser skin resurfacing as an alternative to expensive, invasive surgical procedures. Unlike surgery, laser resurfacing treatments:
- Cause minimal (if any) discomfort
- Are very precise procedures, treating only the designated skin area. This prevents skin lightening (hypopigmentation) or damage to the surrounding tissues.
- Consistently and quickly create excellent clinical results
- Present a low risk of treatment complications
- Require minimal (if any) post-treatment downtime
- Are safe and suitable for all types of skin
