This is NOT your old traditional Fractional CO2 Laser. Traditional fractional CO2 lasers required you to be in the operating room under general anesthesia. However, this new technology CORE Fractional CO2 laser can be done in 30 minutes while only using a topical numbing agent so anesthesia does not have to be used. The new CORE CO2 laser only requires one treatment, not numerous treatments to achieve the maximum results.
What is CORE CO2?
This versatile CO2 system that enables us to precisely target and effectively treat the skin’s surface, middle and deep dermal levels, plus perform traditional CO2 resurfacing and laser excision of lesions.
This treatment is lighter, faster, and a more versatile solution for skin resurfacing, traditional ablation and minor dermal excisions. CORE CO2 has the ability to treat both superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously with precision-control over the intensity, pattern and depth of ablation.

How do I know if CORE CO2 treatments are right for me?
Ideal candidate for this are in their late 20’s to 30’s or older with skin damaged by exposure to the sun, age spots, fine lines, discoloration, rough texture and other skin imperfections. It is ideal for anyone seeking younger looking skin without the long downtime associated with conventional resurfacing procedures.
What is the CORE CO2 procedure like?
You can expect some moderate discomfort during the treatment, but the topical anesthetic applied prior to the procedure typically makes any discomfort tolerable. For more aggressive, higher powered treatments, we may recommend a subcutaneous anesthetic, oral pain relievers and/or sedatives during the treatments session. Over-the-counter pain relievers may be taken in the days after the procedure to alleviate any residual discomfort.
How many CORE CO2 treatments will you 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 and smoother. The age spots and uneven textures will start to show immediate improvement.
How long will the results last?
The durability of CORE CO2 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 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 peeling of dead skin from the treatment area. This is natural exfoliation process that may last 7-10 days.
