CO2RE Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing London

Laser skin treatments are very effective in removing lines and wrinkles, sun damage, shrinking pores and improving overall skin tone.

Laser peels work by removing tiny parts of the top layer of your old skin to uncover the smoother, fresher skin beneath. Then, after about 30 days, new skin starts to reshape and develop new layers which continue to improve for 6-12 months after the procedure. Usually, for skin rejuvenation, only one treatment is required.

This amazing skin treatment softens deep lines and fine wrinkles and your skin is smoother, fresher and more youthful. It is also an excellent treatment for smoothening out acne scars.

It is essential to use SPF 30 following any skin treatment, and to avoid prolonged sun exposure for at least 30 days following a CO2RE treatment. After all, why go through a treatment if you are just going to damage your skin again!

We regularly treat patients from London, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire & Northamptonshire. Local residents from Harpenden, St Albans, Redbourn, Hemel Hempstead, Aylesbury, Hitchin, Luton, Watford & Central London already know the high standards Riverbanks provides in all of the treatments on offer.

Patient Testimonials

“Whilst a fairly invasive treatment, it is definitely worth it! After a few days of flakiness, my skin was tighter and more radient and the fine lines had visibly faded. This improvement has continued to develop over the last few months and I am very pleased with the result!”
Sarah, Studham

“I have never had good skin and for the first time in my life I am being asked what I use. The laser has given me great results, well worth the few days down time.”
Anne, Welwyn

“Even after 18 months my skin is continuing to improve. I noticed my skin felt bouncy & there seemed to be slight plumping in the cheeks. My skin also looks smoother and my daughters have noticed!”
Rita, St Albans

“I chose to have this laser treatment because I have some scarring on my face. I have been wanting to have laser treatment for a long time. It has improved my complexion and tightened my skin.”
Vicky, Luton


Treatment FAQS

Why is the CO2 laser resurfacing technique the best?

The CO2 laser is considered the gold standard for laser resurfacing. Used for years to remove the ageing outer layer of the skin to allow the inner skin tissue to regenerate, it successfully helps form newer, smoother and more youthful appearing skin. It effectively stimulates new collagen growth in the deeper skin layer, improves the damage caused by the sun, plumps the skin, removes unwanted pigmentations, smoothes wrinkles, improves acne scars, and tightens the skin. Thus, essentially almost all the changes of ageing can be treated with this amazing new laser technology.

What is the recovery from laser resurfacing?

The CO2RE is a fractional ablative type of laser resurfacing. Thus, because it destroys small parts of the superficial layer of skin cells, it has less downtime than the fully ablative techniques. However, it produces very similar results with much less downtime and risk. Most people are able to go back to normal work and activities after a week. This is about a third of the healing time required with older traditional laser resurfacing.

How is the procedure done?

The procedure is performed in the clinic using a twilight anaesthesia for your comfort so that you have a completely pain free experience. It takes only around 30 minutes to do the whole process. Afterwards, most patients complain of just mild discomfort treated with pain medications. You will need antibiotics and anti-virals to protect you from infection. A prescription will be provided.

Can other procedures be done at the same time?

Laser resurfacing can be combined with other facial rejuvenating techniques to give you even the best results with the least downtime. Botulinum Toxin injections such as Azzalure can help eliminate wrinkles that form in the upper face and around the eyes from dynamic muscle contractions. Facial fillers, such as Restylane, Emervel, Radiesse and fat can replenish the volume that is lost as you get older. IPL Photofacial treatments can fade and decrease the age-spots and sun spots to enhance the effect of the CO2 laser on these changes. Combining these options can enhance the results of laser resurfacing to rejuvenate your face even more.

Are people happy about the results?

99.9% of our patients are very glad they had CO2RE performed. Their face is smoother with less wrinkles, lines, and pigmentations. They exhibit a more youthful appearance. Plus, they were able to do this without going under the knife and getting a face lift. Although the procedure does not replace a face lift, it does produce dramatic results by tightening and smoothing the skin. It is a non-surgical option to rejuvenate your face.

Non-surgical cosmetic enhancement procedures are improving every day. These minimal downtime procedures are replacing the need to perform plastic and reconstructive surgery on the face. Plastic surgery is becoming non-surgical. We have always and will continue to practice on the cutting edge of new facial rejuvenation techniques. You are always able to get the latest up to date treatments at Riverbanks.
