How do I know if CO2RE treatments are right for me?
If you have any of the above we at Jeunesse Spa and SKin Care strongly recommend that you come and talk to us. We would then be able to advise you on the best possible course of treatment.
What is the CO2RE procedure like?
The procedure involves skin resurfacing with the use of a CO2 laser. First your skin will be cleaned of make up (if required), surface debris and excess of sebum. Then an anaesthetic cream will be applied to the treatment area to make the skin numb allowing for the procedure to be comfortable and virtually painless; sometimes some small discomfort may be experienced. Generally the time required for the treatment is determined by the surface of the treated area for example facial treatment can take as little as 20 minutes.
Is CO2RE safe?
Yes. We will talk to you about your medical and skin history to minimize the potential for any negative reactions. However, the most positive impact of this treatment is how safe it is and that there is virtually no contraindications to treatment.
How many CO2RE treatments?
You will usually find a significant improvement after only one treatment. In the days after the treatment your skin will gradually look softer and smoother. Age spots will start getting lighter and skin texture will start showing signs of regeneration. The fibroblastic response will continue for several months post treatment but most will see a significant improvement within a month. This will then continue for 4-6 months. For more advanced signs of ageing such as deeper wrinkles, severe skin laxity and marked hyper pigmentation two or three treatments may be required to achieve the best result.
How long will the results last?
The results of fractional resurfacing are similar to those of surgical procedures lasting up to 5 years. However, it is recommended to have a light treatment each year in order to maintain the skin enhancing results by delaying the ageing process. There are factors that will determine how long you can expect the results to last such as your health, age and how well you care for your skin.
What can I expect after my procedure?
Immediately after the procedure you can expect a sensation similar to sunburn such as burning, some redness and swelling which may last up to several hours. These effects depend on the intensity and depth of the treatment. In the days following treatment you will experience skin tightening and peeling of dead skin from the treatment area. This is a natural exfoliation process that may last seven to ten days. A specialist after care pack is provided by the clinic along with useful skin care tips to prolong your results.
How much do treatments cost?
The cost depends on the area and condition being treated and the intensity of the treatment. To achieve a desirable effect more than one treatment may be needed. The number of treatments may also depend to large extend on general skin condition, the patients lifestyle and amount of time available for recovery.
The treatment of the full face is less than a third of the price of a face lift with none of the risks attached to major surgery. You will look younger and fresher but with a faster recovery time.
