C02 LASER SKIN RESURFACING

C02RE BY CANDELA MEDICAL

The treatment of choice for advanced signs of external ageing – deep wrinkles, age related pigmentation and skin laxity. C02 laser skin resurfacing is the ‘gold standard’ of laser skin rejuvenation treatments.

C02 laser resurfacing in considered a semi surgical treatment and is performed exclusively by our skilled Cosmetic Doctors.

The laser uses deep heat ablation to resurface the skin with impressive results in a single treatment.

The downtime for this treatment is 14 days and involves a strict at home post care regimen. You will see immediate improvement in your skin with continued improvement for up to 12 months after treatment, as new collagen and elastin are formed.

USED TO TREAT

A CO2RE treatment achieves results similar to a surgical procedure with marked improvement in the visible signs of ageing. There will be a significant reduction in pigmentation, skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles. After the 1st week there will be a noticeable improvement in fine lines and pigment. You will notice over the next 4-6 months more improvement with skin tightening and reduction in deeper wrinkles due to the effect from the new collagen formation (neo-collagenesis).

A CO2 Laser uses tiny laser beams to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. The laser beams focus on the water in your skin and ablate tiny columns in your skin to a very precise depth. The surrounding unaffected skin is then able to promote rapid healing.

Here at Vamp Cosmetic Clinic I use a CO2RE Laser by Syneron Candela. A CO2RE Laser treatment is generally a one off treatment for skin rejuvenation which addresses all of the above skin concerns, without having to have multiple treatments with various other machines. The CO2RE laser has the ability to combine a superficial skin treatment for resurfacing purposes, and also penetrate deep into the dermal layer of the skin to promote new collagen formation all with a single pass of the laser. The CO2RE also has the ability to perform non fractional fully ablative treatments for more severe scars and deeper wrinkles.

At Vamp Cosmetic Clinic we provide topical anaesthesia as well as regional anaesthetic blocks with sedation and pain relief to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure. Generally over the counter analgesia is sufficient post procedurally for pain relief. For the first 3 days following treatment, patients report heat in the skin, moderate to severe swelling, skin tightness, oozing, and in due course – crusting of the skin, ‘scabbing’ and itchiness.

A CO2RE treatment is certainly not a “no downtime” treatment. Depending on how aggressive a treatment is, it can take from 7-14 days for the skin to heal, and there can be some redness of the skin for up to 6 weeks and even up to 12 weeks. you must follow a strict post care regimen including applying a thick occlusive cream several times a day, strict avoidance of sunlight and keeping the skin clean.

After the healing phase (14 days) redness in the skin can easily be camouflaged with makeup. Following the healing phase, it is important that you strictly adhere to a good skincare regime, and use sunblock with at least with SPF 30+, preferably SPF 50+ sunblock, regularly for at least 1 month prior to treatment and for at least 3 months following a treatment. We recommend sunblock is used regularly regardless of having laser treatment or not to protect against photo-ageing and solar damage.

At Vamp Cosmetic Clinic we have a very specific and precise aftercare regime which we recommend you adhere to get the best possible results and minimize the complications. On your day of treatment, our Dermal Therapist will guide you through the process of aftercare and provide you with a hard copy of your aftercare plan. In the days following treatment, we will follow you up regularly throughout the healing process. We are available 24 hours a day for a 48 hours following your procedure should you have any queries or concerns.

This is a common question we get asked about the results of laser treatments. Laser treatments are unlike other cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers that degrade in your body over time. Laser treatments stimulate your body’s own ability to make collagen. C02 fractional lasers penetrate into the deep layers of the skin and stimulate more collagen production than other lasers, which continues up to 12 months post treatment. The results of the treatment will last as long as you look after your skin. At Vamp, we recommend a post C02 skin care regimen that will help preserve your C02 treatment for years to come.
