Say Goodbye to Facial Aging and Hyperpigmentation

The Core CO2 laser is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment that helps you show off smoother, more healthy, and youthful skin.

This treatment is ideal for anyone who is feeling frustrated by the onset of facial aging…and it’s also perfect for anyone simply looking for a visual boost ahead of an upcoming social event or outing!

The effects of the Core CO2 laser can be likened to those of chemical peels or microdermabrasion, with the added benefit of extreme precision, easily adjustable intensity, and treatment versatility. This powerful laser technology represents the future of cosmetic dermatological procedures, and we’re excited to offer it here at CosmetiCare.

Am I the Right Candidate?

The Core CO2 laser can be used to treat practically all patients with the desire to correct issues with their facial skin. The effectiveness of the treatment can be dependent on your skin type, thickness, texture, and tone. However, the Core CO2 laser is designed to work with all types of facial skin and with most degrees of facial skin issues.

The ideal patient for this treatment:

  • Has a fair to light skin tone
  • Does not have a suntan
  • Is in their 30s or older
  • Wants to treat notably wrinkled, sun-damaged, or scarred skin

If you are experiencing problems with blotchiness, age spots, or general pigmentation issues, then the Core CO2 laser can be one of the most powerful and effective solutions for you. Repeat treatments might be necessary depending on the extent of your pigmentation issues. However, the results are immediate and long-lasting.

Maintaining Your Youthful Skin

The secret to maintaining youthful skin is collagen stimulation. Fractionated CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is still one of the most requested and effective skin rejuvenation, collagen-stimulating treatments that we have to offer.

How Does the Core CO2 Laser Treat Pigmentation?

The Core CO2 laser treats issues with hyperpigmentation, blotchiness, age spots, and general discoloration through controlled dermal ablation or skin tissue removal. Using the Core CO2 laser wand and adjustable energy settings, your practitioner will be able to focus the carbon dioxide beam on specific points throughout your treatment area for precise results.

The laser will remove precise amounts of the skin’s outer layers in those areas, depending on the depth and size of the blotch or general pigmentation issue. The amount of energy and time spent on each area will be completely based on your unique cosmetic goals, and we’ll work with you to ensure that you understand your treatment plan before the session begins.

Advanced Technology

While the actual science behind the Core CO2 laser is fairly complex, the basic premise involves a type of vaporization of the skin cells through targeted ultra-high energy beams. Essentially, the laser uses energy created by concentrated CO2 in order to carefully remove the outermost layer of your skin. This type of skin removal encourages collagen production and enables healthy, youthful-looking skin to grow back in its place.

Depending on the setting selected for your skin, the Core CO2 has the power to fully resurface the dermis and epidermis without any incisions, or simply remove a superficial top layer of the skin.

The primary uses of the Core CO2 involve the treatment of acne, scars, wrinkles, blotchiness, and hyperpigmentation with the additional positive outcome of tightening loose or sagging skin.

Your Treatment Experience

The actual procedure is minimally invasive, and you’ll only experience a bit of minor discomfort during and immediately following your treatment. A topical anesthetic can be utilized to help with this mild discomfort, though it is not required, and many patients are quite comfortable without it. The length of the laser session will depend on the extent of issues being treated, with most sessions taking less than an hour to complete.

After Your CO2 Laser Session

You can expect to experience some minor soreness and redness for a few days following your procedure. It is important to avoid excessive sun exposure and use protective lotions and facial nourishments during this short recovery time. We’ll make sure that you have detailed aftercare instructions, and we’ll be available to you if you have any questions following your Core CO2 Laser treatment.

My results from the CO2 laser were amazing. Most of my wrinkles diminished and the discoloring of my skin that I had developed during pregnancy completely disappeared.
