CO2RE: Wrinkle Reduction & Skin Resurfacing

CO2RE is a fractional therapy CO2 laser for skin resurfacing. Your skin is treated with a matrix of laser pulses that vary in intensity depending on the area being treated, the desired outcome, and your skin type.  A topical anesthetic is applied prior to the treatment and injections to numb the skin can be used in certain areas as well. Downtime varies according to the depth of treatment and can entail peeling for up to 7-10 days.  The CO2RE system targets multiple layers of skin to treat wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, and scars while stimulating collagen production. Under the skilled hands of Dr. Brown, the CO2RE delivers predictable, long-lasting visible results for all skin concerns, including: 

  • Enhanced tone and texture 
  • Reduced effects of sun damage and aging
  • Smoothed fine lines, wrinkles, and scars

Stellar M22: The future of skin treatments

The Stellar M22 is a device that offers ResurFX treatments as well as Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL. ResurFX is a treatment for skin rejuvenation using a non-ablative laser, meaning that collagen stimulation can be obtained without harm to the outer layers of the skin so there is less downtime. Topical anesthetic is usually applied prior to treatment. After treatment, the skin may have a red appearance with some swelling, depending on the depth of treatment. This can last up to several days for deeper treatments. A series of treatments is recommended to optimize results.

IPL is a photorejuvenation procedure that visibly improves age and sun spots, redness, rosacea and broken capillaries. The Stellar M22 IPL technology uses light pulses to penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting pigmentation and vascular imperfections in a controlled manner. The body’s natural process then removes the heated tissue while collagen and elastic fiber stimulation occurs.

This results in a visible improvement in skin tone and texture. After treatment, there may be some temporary redness. For treatment of pigmentation, there will be some darkness/speckled appearance which can last up to 5-7 days. A series of treatments is recommended to optimize results. This laser treats:

  • Fine lines
  • Uneven texture
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Rosacea
  • Vascular lesions

Connecticut Laser Treatment FAQs | Brown Plastic Surgery

Generally speaking, exercise is not restricted following any laser treatments. However, sweat may cause irritation to the treated areas.

Recovery time from laser treatments depends on the type of procedure you are having. For laser hair removal, recovery time is minimal, and most patients can return to normal 48 hours following the procedure. For other laser skin resurfacing treatments, healing may take 2-3 weeks.

Laser treatment results are dependent on the laser used, the number of treatments required and the extent of the treatment. Results are both immediate and progressive. Typically, within a week following most laser treatments, the skin will show improvement. As laser treatments encourage collagen production, your skin will continue to improve for about 4-6 months following your treatment.

Patients should avoid strenuous activities, such as exercise, following any laser treatments for at least 48 hours. Sweat can cause skin irritation, so keep your skin cool and comfortable.

Typically, laser hair removal procedure or skin resurfacing treatment can last approximately an hour. However, treatment time is determined by the extent of your specific needs and the treatment areas. Dr. Brown can estimate your procedure length after you have been evaluated.
