What is CO2RE Laser treatment? 

CO2RE is a fractional therapy CO2 laser for skin rejuvenation. 

Your skin is treated with laser points that vary in intensity, depending on your skin type and desired treatment results. 

The revolutionary CO2 fractional laser (CO2RE by Candela medical UK) is a great treatment for those patients who are suffering from severe sun damage, uneven skin tones and texture, deeper wrinkles as well as scars.

It also offers amazing benefits for your skin such as tightening, smoothing and evening out your complexion for a more radiant glow.

How do I know if CO2RE treatments are right for me? 

The COs laser treatment is a type of laser technology that can be used for laser scar removal.  Furthermore, if your skin is damaged from exposure to the sun, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, discolouration, rough texture (acne scars) then this treatment can be ideal for you. This treatment is perfect for anyone seeking younger-looking skin with a treatment that has limited downtime.

What is the CO2 RE procedure like? 

You can expect some moderate discomfort during the treatment, but the anaesthetic applied prior to the procedure typically makes any discomfort tolerable.

How many CO2 RE treatments will I need? 

Generally you will see the difference you want after only one treatment. In the days after the treatment, your skin will gradually look softer, smoother and with less unwanted pigmentation. 

The fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and uneven texture will start to show improvement. 

How long will the results last? 

The durability of CO2 RE results approaches that of surgical procedures. However, there are a number of variables that will determine how long you can expect the results to last including: your health, age and how you care for your skin after treatment. 


  1. Hydrate – we recommend that for seven days pre-treatment you moisturise skin in the morning and evening, and drink at least 8 glasses of water per day to completely hydrate your skin and optimise treatment results.
  2. You may be provided with an antiviral prophylaxis 3-4 days prior to the procedure if you are undergoing a deeper peel, or have a history of Herpes Simplex to avoid an outbreak.
  3. Topical retinoid therapy should be discontinued 7 days prior to treatment.
  4. Avoid any prolonged exposure to the sun, if you must be in the sun use a sunscreen of at least SPF 30+.
  5. Remove all substances from the intended treatment area, including topical anaesthetics, hairspray, gel, makeup, lotions, deodorants, self-tanning products and ointments. Do not use flammable products in the vicinity of the laser.
  6. Do not use an alcohol-based cleanser as this removes moisture from the skin.
  7. Take 2 Paracetamol or Ibuprofen tablets, one hour before the procedure if desired to reduce post-laser burning pain.

What can I expect after my procedure?

Immediately after treatment, most patients will experience a clinical endpoint of redness (for 5-7 days), however for more aggressive treatments this may last longer. After the second day, skin will appear as an exaggerated tan.  Skin will begin to flake at 5-7 days on the face and neck; 7-10 days for the chest; and 10-14 for the hands. You will notice a yellowish crust appearing on your skin as of day 2. This has to be wiped, clean twice per day. You will have some swelling and a sunburn feeling on some parts of your face, or all your face for 3-4 days after laser treatment and this is normal if not accompanied with pain or fever.

Post care guidelines:

  1. Stay in a cool place AWAY from direct sunlight for the duration of healing of your skin.
  2. For the first 3 days post procedure, cleanse your face twice daily with vinegar sooks (1tsp of white distilled vinegar in 1 cup of water), wipe gently with a soft gauze twice daily with this solution to remove crusts and old stuck ointment.
  3. If prescribed a topical antibiotic apply that twice daily for 4 days post laser.
  4. Apply Aquaphor or Vaseline petroleum jelly multiple times a day as needed to keep the skin hydrated during the healing process.
  5. When you bathe or shower do not scrub the treated area, treat it gently and avoid very hot water. IT IS ADVISABLE NOT TO WASH THE AREA THE SAME DAY OF TREATMENT.
  6. Use high SPF sunscreen at least 30 from day one to avoid hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin).
  7. If prescribed the antiviral tablets make sure you finish the course of treatment and take all the prescribed tablets even if you do not develop a cold sore.
  8. DO NOT at any time pick at the scabs or crusts that form as this might lead to delayed healing and possibly infection and scarring. Treat your skin very gently. You most gently wipe them with above mentioned solution (see item 2).
  9. Stay away from direct heat and avoid vigorous exercise.
  10. Men should avoid shaving until skin has completely shed.
  11. Drink plenty of water (8 glasses a day) to stay hydrated and sleep on a high pillow the first day to avoid swelling.

Patient Reviews

“I am so glad I came to Dr. Hiba, I didn’t know what I wanted, however, my skin felt tired, old, and grey. She immediately put my mind at ease. She helped me with a skincare regime that worked! My treatment quick, painless – and results fantastic. Very happy, can’t recommend her enough.”

Peter, Surrey

“As my skin is aging, Dr. Hiba is helping me improve and maintain the texture of my skin in ways that are very natural looking and age appropriate. Dr. Hiba is so professional and took the time to explain the process and ensured she wouldn’t freeze my face. Dr. Hiba is very easy to communicate with (as is her staff) and I am genuinely looking forward to having my procedures done.”
