Fractionated CO2 Resurfacing (CO2RE)

The top of the line Syneron Candela CO2RE can be used to ablate or damage the skin in a controlled way that allows for the creation of a “wound healing” environment, forcing damaged or scarred skin to re-heal in a more desirable way using CO2 as its energy source, emitting a wavelength that is highly absorbed by water.  Because our skin is about 60% water, it is a perfect target for CO2RE laser energy.  Skin that is sun damaged, aged, or has certain types of pigmentation and scarring can be treated by precise ablation.  The CO2RE laser’s settings can be adjusted to control the depth of this damage, so that either the top layer of skin, or the deeper mid-layer, or both, can be treated; forcing your body to make new, healthier skin in its place.

What can you treat?

  • Fine Lines/Wrinkles
  • Lax Skin
  • Scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation/Sun Damage

How CO2RE Differs

Almost every medical spa offers a fractional resurfacing procedure but the CO2RE differs by using two types of laser beams that penetrate to different depths simultaneously. The CO2RE has up to 7 treatment modes to treat a variety of skin issues. The CO2RE offers less discomfort, faster treatment and dramatic results after just one session.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial

What is it?

A broad spectrum of light is transmitted through a small, smooth, transparent hand piece which is gently placed over the skin. Cut-off filters in the headpiece change the wavelength range allowing it to be optimized for different applications and skin types. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions and damages them. The body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance.

What can you treat?

IPL technology improves the appearance of:

  • photo-aged skin
  • age spots (sun-induced freckles)
  • benign brown pigments
  • redness caused by broken capillaries

The IPL Photofacial treatment is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires minimal downtime and has a low risk of side effects. The gentle, non-ablative treatments use broad spectrum light to treat the face, chest, neck, and hands—virtually anywhere that sun damage shows.

Ematrix Sublative Resurfacing

What is it?

Sublative Rejuvenation with eMatrix is a procedure which uses radio frequency to deliver an effective but controlled non-ablative treatment for wrinkles, scars, large pores and better texture of the skin. Similar to CO2 it uses radiofrequency (electrical) energy, as opposed to laser.  Each pulse delivers the radio frequency energy via a grid of matrix spots, inducing a skin injury which is maximized in these tiny, targeted areas. Fibroblasts activated within the “zones” signal collagen to regenerate and remodel, yielding improved skin tone and texture overall. Meanwhile, the surrounding “untreated” tissue then helps to support and accelerate the healing process in the skin.

What can you treat?

Patients looking to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity or scarring with minimal downtime are good candidates for this procedure.
