CO2RE is a fractional therapy CO2 laser for skin resurfacing. Your skin is treated with a matrix of laser light points that vary in intensity, depending on your skin type and desired treatment results. The result is a treatment that is fast, more comfortable and requires less downtime than traditional resurfacing – enabling you to get back to your daily routine much quicker.

Aging, sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle factors including nutrition, alcohol consumption and smoking all may contribute to facial wrinkling.Pigmentary changes of the skin, such as blotchiness or brown spots, may also occur with age or as a result of birth control pills, pregnancy or genetic factors. Prior acne may have made the surface of your skin uneven. These problems, as well as certain other skin conditions, may be improved by laser skin resurfacing.
At ShanthalaMD, we utilize non-ablative skin resurfacing. Nonablative lasers are light-based treatments that penetrate the skin without visible wounding the skin surface to treat minimal sun damage, age spots and irregular pigmentation, and acne scarring.
In the past, laser treatments were done at high-energy settings with fewer treatment sessions. Today’s trend is to do more treatments using lower energy levels, which minimizes the chances of burning, pigmentation, scarring and other unwanted side effects.
Fractional resurfacing allows for skin-surface improvement with minimal risk and little downtime because each treatment creates thousands of microscopic wounds while leaving the surrounding skin intact. Over a series of office visits, the treatments resurface the entire face, improving fine lines, sunspots and other discoloration. They’re ideal for those who have less time to be out of commission. Treatment feels like multiple pin pricks, and topical anesthetics and cooling agents are used.
How it works
As the tiny wounds heal, fresher skin emerges. After two or three treatments over a six-month period, spots and fine lines will fade away. The skin will look smooth and retextured. (Many doctors use this on sun-damaged, blotchy chests, as well.) Downtime is limited; your skin might look a little sunburned for two to five days.
