How CO2RE Skin Resurfacing Works
Aging, the sun’s harsh UV rays, genetics, stress, decline in hormone production, and even lifestyle choices (smoking, tanning, etc.) all contribute to the development of facial lines and wrinkles – in addition to unwanted pigmentation, including “age spots” and “sun spots”. And, unfortunately, as we age the skin looses the ability to effectively repair itself, because collagen and elastin production also decreases with age.
The good news is that CO2RE laser skin resurfacing naturally re-activates the body’s healing mechanisms to repair lines, wrinkles and skin damage.
CO2RE utilizes both ablative and fractional laser technology. The ablative laser literally strips off the thin, damaged top layer of skin (epidermis). Meanwhile, the fractional laser penetrates the deep layers of the underlying skin (dermis). As the laser energy is absorbed it activates the body’s production of new elastin and collagen protien fibers – regrowing new skin cells to fill, tighten and repair wrinkles and lines.
By stimulating the skin’s own natural cellular renewal process – CO2RE minimizes or eliminates fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. The CO2RE laser can also be used to smooth rough skin texture and help reduce the appearance of scars.
Dr. Ali will apply a local anesthetic before CO2RE laser skin resurfacing, to ensure a comfortable procedure. The remarkable wrinkle reducing results from CO2RE laser skin resurfacing will be immediately visible, and will continue to improve for the next several months. Even better, the dramatically visible anti-aging results can last for years!
