Fraxel re:store laser treatment is a revolutionary new way to correct aged and damaged skin – without the prolonged downtime or adverse reactions of other resurfacing procedures. Safe and effective, the Fraxel re:store laser is cleared by the FDA and has undergone extensive testing in the lab and out in the field. Fraxel re:store treatment is the accepted gold standard for treating these conditions:
- Acne scars
- Periorbital wrinkles
- Melasma (mask of pregnancy)
- Irregular texture
- Sun spots and age spots (pigmented lesions)
How it works
With Fraxel re:store treatment, you get dramatic results without going under the knife. Instead, Fraxel re:store laser treatment uses points of light to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of your skin. The treatment penetrates deep into the skin to remove old, damaged skin cells, stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, and replaces the cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
Because the technology is so precise, Fraxel re:store treatment works not only on the face, but also on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands.
CO2RE (CORE) - Fractional CO2 Skin Resurfacing
The newest fractional laser on the market has arrived at Goldsboro Skin Center. The CO2RE can treat wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin on the superficial and deep level.
The ability to treat scars, discoloration, wrinkles, and skin laxity with fractional lasers has grown in leaps and bounds. The minimally invasive fractional resurfacing procedure 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 Fractional Lasers Work
Per its namesake, fractional lasers only treat a fraction of the skin at a time with laser beams but treatment is aggressive. Essentially, the laser drills millions of tiny holes in the skin – vaporizing what it comes in contact with and creating columns into the skin. The minute damage or “wounds” created by the laser force the body to heal with new and healthy skin, after eradicating any previous pigmented or lax skin. The depth of laser penetration determines what is being treated.
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 us at Goldsboro Skin Center 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 has the ability to treat both superficial and deep layers of skin simultaneously while providing your doctor maximum precision and control when it comes to the intensity of treatment, pattern and depth of ablation.
With CO2RE laser skin resurfacing treatment, patients experience improvement in:
- Skin tone and texture
- Sun-damaged skin
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Facial scars
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.No longer available
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 a number of 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. Jennings and his 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 sensation similar to sunburn, which may last for several hours. In the days following treatment, you will experience peeling of dead skin from the treatment area. This is a natural exfoliation process and may last seven to 10 days
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. Jennings will create a treatment plan to meet your personal needs.
