How Does Candela CO2RE Work?

Candela CO2RE works by delivering energy at controlled depths and temperature in the sub-dermal tissue. This creates tiny micro-wounds, prompting the body’s natural healing response and encouraging the production of collagen and new skin cells. Candela CO2RE can be used to perform full and fractional skin resurfacing, depending on the patient’s needs and desired results.

Who is a Suitable Candidate for this Procedure?

Candela CO2RE is an ideal treatment for patients wanting to rejuvenate, restore and refine healthy skin. We recommend that the skin is primed, hydrated and as healthy as possible before your treatment in order to achieve the best results from your laser session.

Is There Any Downtime to this Procedure?

CO2RE’s advanced technology allows for a faster application, as it can treat multiple skin layers in one single pass. A reduced amount of energy is used in the targeted area during treatment, resulting in shorter recovery time. The length of downtime varies from patient to patient, but you can expect a minimum of two days of recovery time after your Candela treatment.

Is the Treatment Painful?

TCO2RE’s advanced technology allows for a faster application than other laser devices, as it can treat multiple skin layers at once. A shorter treatment time means less energy delivered to the skin, translating into less discomfort for the patient at the time of treatment. There’s certain discomfort associated with this procedure, with some patients describing it as being gently slapped with a tiny rubber band. Some patients report hardly feeling anything at all. Levels of discomfort vary from patient to patient depending on their tolerance to pain; however, Candela TCO2RE is generally well tolerated.

When Will I Notice Results?

You can expect to see results after your first treatment; however, multiple sessions may be required to achieve optimal results. During your comprehensive skin consultation, our expert therapists will assess your case and determine the number of sessions needed to reach your skin goals.
