How Long Does It Take to See Results
With CO2RE Laser Resurfacing, you’ll see improved coloration, dull tone, and helps restore a thinning collagen layer. Results will begin gradually and continue to improve for months, with full results seen 3-6 months after CO2RE Laser Resurfacing treatment. Unlike erbium lasers, a CO2 laser penetrates the skin more deeply, allowing for treatment of more severe wrinkles and pigmentation issues.
How Long is Recovery After CO2RE Laser Resurfacing
After the treatment, patients report a few days of a burning sensation similar to a severe sunburn. Patients will keep the treated area moist with a special recovery balm and will want to rest indoors after CO2RE Laser Resurfacing treatment until the skin has healed. Skin peeling may last 7-14 days. The skin will be raw for several days, but by day 7-10 patients are able to use makeup when they go out in public. Patients should avoid scheduling special events for 2 weeks post treatment to heal the skin fully. 1 to 3 months of skin sensitivity may occur, and patients are given a skin care regimen and asked to avoid prolonged sun exposure. Always use a broad spectrum SPF to prevent irregular pigmentation and protect skin.
