How CO2Re Laser Works

CO2Re Laser is a cutting-edge, fractional laser technology that effectively targets both the superficial and deeper layers of your skin. It works by creating microscopic channels in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing process and promoting collagen production. This results in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.

At Glow Dermspa in Lakewood Ranch, our skilled professionals use CO2Re Laser to treat a wide range of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, and uneven skin texture. The treatment can also help to tighten the skin and improve overall skin tone, giving you a refreshed and revitalized appearance.

What to Expect

Your CO2Re Laser treatment at Glow Dermspa will begin with a consultation where our skilled providers will discuss your specific skin concerns and aesthetic goals. This ensures that we can develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. At the time of consultation, you will receive your pre-procedure instructions and prescriptions necessary to get before the day of your treatment.

On the day of your CO2Re laser treatment, before the procedure, your skin will be cleansed and a numbing cream may be applied to ensure your comfort during the treatment. The numbing time lasts between 45 minutes to an hour. During the procedure, the CO2Re Laser device will be carefully guided over your skin, emitting short bursts of laser energy to create microscopic channels and stimulate collagen production.

Following the treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling, and a sensation similar to a sunburn. These side effects typically subside within a few days. Your practitioner will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help promote proper healing and ensure optimal results.

It is essential to protect your skin from the sun and avoid any harsh skincare products during the healing process. As your skin heals, you’ll begin to notice a smoother, more radiant complexion with improved tone and texture.

CO2Re Laser Treatment Applications

The CO2Re Laser is a versatile treatment option that addresses a variety of skin concerns and conditions. Here are some of the most common applications for this advanced laser technology:
CO2Re Laser is highly effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars by promoting collagen production and skin renewal. The result is smoother, more even skin with a significant reduction in the visibility of scars.
This laser treatment targets both superficial and deeper layers of the skin to help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. By stimulating collagen production, the skin becomes firmer and more youthful-looking.
CO2Re Laser helps reverse sun damage and reduce age spots by targeting the melanin in the skin. This process safely and effectively breaks down the pigmentation, resulting in a more even and radiant complexion.
The CO2Re Laser is a powerful tool for skin resurfacing, as it removes the outermost layers of the skin to reveal the healthier, younger-looking skin beneath. This process also promotes the growth of new skin cells and collagen production for a rejuvenated appearance.
By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the CO2Re Laser stimulates collagen production, resulting in firmer and tighter skin.
CO2Re Laser can effectively improve skin texture by smoothing out rough, uneven areas and promoting a more uniform complexion. This makes it an excellent option for those looking to refine their skin’s overall appearance.
The CO2Re Laser can reduce the visibility of stretch marks by promoting skin renewal and collagen production. This results in smoother, more even skin where stretch marks are less noticeable.
By stimulating collagen production and promoting skin renewal, CO2Re Laser can help to minimize the appearance of large pores, resulting in a smoother and more refined complexion.
The CO2Re Laser is effective in reducing the appearance of surgical and traumatic scars by promoting the growth of new skin cells and collagen production. This helps to smooth out the scarred area and improve overall skin texture.
CO2Re Laser can be used to rejuvenate the skin around the eyes, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. This non-surgical eyelid lift provides a more youthful and refreshed appearance without the need for invasive surgery.

Laser Client Reviews

Glow DermspaExcellentGlow Dermspa4.9 Based on 309 reviews fromSee all reviews review us onMJMJ ★★★★★ I got hemosiderin staining and spider veins around my lower leg due to ankle surgery and I could not find a medical doctor that could help t remove them, not even a vein center. My PA-C recommended I contact Glow Dermspa and I am so glad I did. I went to my consultation appointment not knowing what to expect and from the moment I arrived I was greeted cheerfully and offered a refreshment and snacks. The center is beautifully decorated and welcoming. Dr. Ellis’ assistant was so personable and attentive. Then came Dr. Ellis with the great news that she could help remove the hemosiderin and spider veins with the VBeam laser and on the same day! I am so very grateful to have found a warm, caring and talented dermatologist to help me and I can’t wait to see my results in about 4 weeks. Thank you, thank you, thank you 🙏🏼.Klara MrcelaKlara Mrcela ★★★★★ I saw Melissa for v beam treatment on broken capillaries on my cheeks and she did an absolute incredible job. She was very thorough and made sure I knew I was going to be taken care off because I previously had a really bad experience with laser for my capillaries. It completely vanished once it healed up, I still can’t believe it!!Karen Connolly-LaneKaren Connolly-Lane ★★★★★ I went to Glow for a checkup post Mohs surgery and potential laser treatment thinking that they had only sent me pre-op instructions 2 hours before my appointment. It turns out that they had sent it days earlier and I had missed it. They were incredibly gracious about my mistake and still took very good care of me. My scar looks great, but I’ll be scheduling that laser treatment down the road (when I’m not training for a marathon), and I’ll be absolutely confident in their hands.Zach GennetteZach Gennette ★★★★★ I had scars on my nose from a previous surgery. I had the CO2 laser treatment done. The spa was absolutely beautiful, the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend Glow spa.Natalie BaublitzNatalie Baublitz ★★★★★ Felt right at home with Nina Vital and Brea! 5 days after my Moxi/BBL treatment, almost ALL of my freckles and sunspots are gone! My skin is amazingly smooth too! Going in for a second visit to lighten/remove any remaining spots. I am absolutely impressed and feel like my face looks 'too good to be true'! Thank you ladies for your expert advise and recommendations.Kristin AntalavitsKristin Antalavits ★★★★★ Had a post-op laser treatment on my Mohs surgery site. Will return to Glow for other procedures as I found the environment very welcoming.js_loader
