CO2RE Fractional Resurfacing
Remove Sun Damage, Lift Your Face
What is CO2RE?
At la chelé, we only offer the best treatments to our patients which is why we have brought on the CO2RE Fractional Resurfacing Laser for skin resurfacing. This CO2 laser technology can precisely target the skin’s surface, middle and deep dermal levels. Depending on your skin type and desired results, your skin will be treated with a matrix of laser pulses that vary in intensity. This treatment is lighter, faster and a more versatile solution for skin resurfacing, traditional ablation and minor dermal excisions. There is less downtime required than that of traditional resurfacing – patients can resume their normal routine much quicker! Results are truly amazing and depending on your goals, this technology can take years off your skin.
Conditions CO2RE Treats
- Enhances skin tone and texture
- Sun damaged skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Post-traumatic & acne scars

The ideal candidate for the CO2RE has damaged skin from overexposure to the sun. Those who have fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, discoloration and rough texture (acne scars) would benefit greatly from this treatment. CO2RE is ideal for anyone who is looking to achieve younger looking skin without the long-term downtime associated with conventional laser resurfacing procedures.
During Your Treatment
At la chelé, we offer a variety of numbing options that can be adjusted towards the various intensity settings of the CO2RE. Patients can expect to have downtime as little as a slight weekend of swelling and mild redness, to more profound downtime that may last 1-2 weeks. During your treatment, we aim to make you as comfortable as possible and have various techniques to control discomfort including topical numbing, numbing injection for facial nerve blocks, cooling Zimmer, vibration, oral pain medication or nitrous oxide. Your provider will customize your preferences for your treatment.
Following your CO2RE treatment, you can expect a sensation similar to a sunburn. You can expect the skin to go through a natural exfoliation process that may last up to 10 days.
After treatment, you will begin to see a difference in your skin right away with optimal results seen gradually- fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, and tone will all improve over time. Some patients may even report an immediate improvement for sun damaged skin and brown spots. The average person will see new collagen formation between 90-120 days extending up to 9 months. Overall, Results are long-lasting and vary on individual factors including age, health, skin care and sun protection.
CO2RE vs. Fraxel
CO2RE and the Fraxel technology are similar as they are both are CO2 lasers for skin rejuvenation. Back in 2000, Fraxel hit the market and was actually the first laser for facial rejuvenation. What sets these two technologies apart is that the CO2RE Fractional Resurfacing is the next generation for laser skin resurfacing and is equipped with only the most cutting-edge technology available. CO2RE has unique microablative technology which allows your skin to heal in a fraction of the time because the surface of the skin is not being ablated at the same time.
