Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing for Complete Facial Rejuvenation in One Treatment in Brentwood, Tennessee
How many CO2RE treatments will I need?
Generally, you will see the difference you want after only one treatment. In the days after the treatment, your skin will gradually look softer, smoother, and tighter. The fine lines wrinkles, age spots, and uneven textures will start to show immediate improvement.
Is CO2RE safe?
Yes. You should speak with our office about your complete medical and skin history to minimize the potential for any negative reactions.
What is the CO2RE procedure like?
You can expect some moderate discomfort during your CO2RE treatment, but the anesthetic applied prior to the procedure typically makes any discomfort tolerable. For more aggressive, higher power treatments, we may recommend a subcutaneous anesthetic, oral pain relievers and/or sedatives during the treatment session. Over-the-counter pain relievers may be taken in the days after the procedure to alleviate any residual discomfort.
How do I know if CO2RE treatments are right for me?
Ideal candidates for CO2RE are in their 30’s or older with skin damaged by exposure to the sun, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, rough texture, acne scars, and other skin imperfections. It is ideal for anyone seeking younger looking skin without the long downtime associated with conventional resurfacing procedures.
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 you care for your skin after the treatment.
What can I expect after my procedure?
Immediately following the procedure you can expect a sensation similar to a sunburn, lasting several hours. You can expect to see the peeling of dead skin from the treatment area. This is a natural exfoliation process that may last 7-10 days.
Do I need to take any special precautions after treatment?
We may recommend a short course of antibiotics to minimize any risk of infection. Use of a moisturizer and sunscreen is highly recommended during the healing process and for the weeks and months following treatment.
