CO2RE® Laser Skin Resurfacing

Treatment Description

The CO2RE treatment uses an ablative fractional CO2 carbon dioxide laser for skin resurfacing.

Ablative laser treatment for skin rejuvenation is widely considered to be one of the most effective skin resurfacing techniques available today. The laser aims an intense wavelength of light on damaged skin and vaporizes the outer layers that have been affected by acne, sun, age, surgery and other factors.

The laser not only removes damaged skin but also stimulates collagen production in underlying skin cells. The result is a noticeable improvement in acne scars, post surgical scars or traumatic scars, facial wrinkles, fine lines and age spots.

La Vitalité Med Spa is a leading provider of CO2 laser in Toronto.

How does the CO2RE® laser treatment work?

The CO2RE fractional laser is the latest innovation in laser technology that simultaneously works on the surface and beneath your skin. It treats a fraction of the skin at a time, making precise, microscopic wounds. As they heal, your body naturally produces collagen and healthy new skin cells.

Skin is treated with a series of laser pulses to enhance skin tone and texture, eliminate the effects of the sun resulting in aging of the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and smooth out unsightly scars.

What is an Ablative Laser?

There are two main types of lasers employed in facial rejuvenation:

Ablative lasers – They remove thin layers of the skin’s surface, removing sunspots, evening pigment and enabling fresh skin to form from below. The CO2RE treatment uses an ablative laser for skin resurfacing.

Non-ablative lasers – These are non-wounding lasers. They stimulate collagen production and help to renew underlying skin.

Non-ablative laser treatments for skin beauty are less invasive and require less downtime than ablative treatments. They may, however, require multiple treatments to match the results of an ablative treatment.


Ideal candidates for CO2RE treatments have fine lines, furrows and other types of deep wrinkles, discoloration, rough texture (acne scars), age spots, or skin damaged by exposure to the sun. It is ideal for anyone seeking younger-looking skin without the long downtime associated with conventional resurfacing procedures. You should speak with your practitioner about your complete medical and skin history to minimize the potential for any negative reactions.

You can expect some moderate discomfort during the treatment, but the anesthetic applied before the procedure typically makes any discomfort tolerable.

Generally, you’ll see the difference you want after only one treatment. In the days after the treatment, your skin will gradually look softer and smoother, with less unwanted pigmentation. The fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and uneven texture will start to show improvement.

Immediately following the procedure, you can expect a sensation similar to a sunburn, lasting several hours. There is a possibility of redness and swelling post treatment. You can expect peeling of dead skin from the treatment area. This is a natural exfoliation process that may last 7 to 10 days.
