When you look in the mirror, do you see skin that is less than perfect? The effects of age, sun damage, gravity, and environmental toxins can lead to a variety of types of skin damage, each of which can leave you looking less youthful and less yourself.
Scientific innovation has led to a non-surgical solution for a variety of skin problems: CO2RE laser skin resurfacing. This non-surgical treatment can help with a number of signs of aging, and is beneficial with a number of other skin conditions as well, such as acne scars or trauma scars.
What is CO2RE laser skin resurfacing?
The CO2RE system is a scientifically advanced laser treatment system that allows us to perform a wide range of laser treatments, each of which addresses a unique set of skin conditions. It operates with four treatment levels:
Light: A light CO2RE treatment creates a series of shallow micro-injuries to trigger the regeneration of the upper layers of your skin. It refreshes your complexion, resolving pigmentation issues, uneven skin texture and producing a smoother, brighter appearance.
Mid: Mid-level treatments reach deeper into your skin for more comprehensive dermal resurfacing. It can provide more intensive results than a light treatment, helping you achieve a bright, even, and smooth complexion.
Deep: Deep, fractional CO2RE treatments address the underlying skin tissue, triggering the production of additional collagen and elastin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines while simultaneously resolving complexion issues.
Fusion: Fusion treatments combine the mid and deep laser treatments for comprehensive dermal resurfacing and the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines. It is highly effective at skin rejuvenation leading to a more youthful, attractive appearance.
What can CO2RE treatments correct?
CO2RE laser skin resurfacing is effective at treating many different skin conditions, including:
Rough skin texture
Uneven skin tone
What to expect with laser resurfacing
Your visit will begin with an in-depth consultation, to evaluate your skin and understand your cosmetic goals. Based on our conversation and evaluation, we will discuss your treatment options for brighter, clearer, and more youthful skin. CO2RE laser skin resurfacing treatments are performed in our private state-of-the-art facilities conveniently located for patients in Aspen, Breckenridge, and Vail Valley. Depending on which treatment option you select, the procedure may take anywhere from forty-five minutes to two hours. Once completed, the treated area is protected with an ointment, which is reapplied for several days. Recovery time will depend on which depth of resurfacing treatment is performed.
How does the CO2RE laser system work?
The top-of-the-line CO2RE laser system works by creating controlled micro-injuries in your skin, which initiates your skin’s natural regenerative process. The CO2RE system is unique due to its advanced safety features and customizability. During a deep CO2RE treatment, two lasers act simultaneously, allowing penetration into two depths at once. We can fine-tune and adjust the system to carefully address your unique skin concerns with astonishing, long-term results.

When can patients with acne scars undergo laser resurfacing?
Patients who are still suffering from severe cystic acne are not candidates for laser resurfacing. Once a patient’s acne is under control, resurfacing may be performed. Individuals who have taken isotretinoin (Accutane) in the past 6-12 months or who are prone to abnormal scarring may not be appropriate candidates for this type of procedure. Our skin care experts will determine if laser resurfacing is safe for you during your initial consultation.
When does my skin peel?
In laser skin resurfacing, the laser vaporizes the top layer of skin instantly. Therefore, peeling is minimal following a CO2RE treatment. You may experience light flaking, yet this is improved with the use of ointments and moisturizing creams.
Who is a good candidate for laser resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing may be considered for anyone looking to improve the effects of facial aging, such as fine lines, sun spots, and enlarged pores. Additionally, younger clients may consider the treatment to improve acne scarring or trauma scars. The CO2RE treatment is best for patients with lighter skin types. Your skin care expert will thoroughly evaluate your concerns and your skin to help you determine if laser resurfacing will achieve your goals.
