CO2RE Resurfacing

Your Skin Doesn’t Have To Tell

Your Age.


SkinMD’s CO2RE Non-Surgical Treatments For Skin Damage and Imperfections

There are some people who wholeheartedly embrace the signs of aging and the indications that a life well lived has left on their face and body. They are perfectly content with how they look, even if they may have visible wrinkles and lines, scars and stretch marks, and many other signs of growing older and just living life.

But for the rest of us… not so much! Instead, you desire youthful, healthy looking skin now and in the future, and have committed to combating the signs of aging.

At SkinMD, we understand that you’ve taken the tougher road and that this strategy has probably been much easier thought about than executed upon, until now. After all, many of us did not have access to very good information about caring for our skin as we grew up. For example, who knew that slathering baby oil all over our faces and bodies and crisping ourselves on the beach for hours would show up as sun-damaged, leathery skin decades later?

wrinkle transformationToday, our knowledge about how we should be taking care of our skin is far more advanced. However, even if we are wearing SPF 50 on our faces and hands every day, generously reapplying sunscreen regularly while at the beach, and seeing our dermatologist at least annually, this isn’t dramatically slowing down the skin’s natural aging process. In fact, our first wrinkles started to get etched as soon as we began to make complex facial motions – parting lips, wrinkling a nose, lowering a brow – in the womb.

So, from the time we were infants until the mature age we are today, our faces and bodies have been fighting an uphill battle. The sun’s damaging UV rays, inflamed blemishes, repetitive facial expressions, dehydration, medications, pregnancy, and our genetics, all play a role in making us look every one of the years we are.

Luckily, those of us who really care about the way we look and feel do have a lot of resources to put up a good fight and potentially win the war on aging. Many of us have tried, and continue to use, a variety of skin care treatments and products to turn back time, including injectables, peels, microdermabrasion, exfoliation, creams, and even surgery. For years, we have been willing to invest time and resources into ensuring that our skin looks great, even if the results only last a few months.

So, what if SkinMD could now provide you with an even better option for getting the age-defying and skin correction results you desire, but with a one-time treatment that can last up to 15 years? You’d absolutely want to know more about it, wouldn’t you?

The medical professionals at SkinMD are thrilled to introduce you to our newest state-of-the-art laser technology, the CO2RE machine, and the treatments that could potentially change your skin and your life. The CO2RE is a lighter, faster, and more flexible solution for skin resurfacing, traditional ablation, and minor dermal excisions. With this system, Dr. Flashner and the SkinMD Registered Nurses can treat a number of skin concerns, including:

  • Acne scarring
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines, deep lines and wrinkles, even around the eyes and mouth
  • Hyperpigmentation and other skin tone concerns
  • Large pores
  • Leathery textured skin and other issues related to sun damage
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Rough skin texture
  • And many other moderate to severe signs of aging

Why the CO2RE Laser?

As you may already know, at SkinMD we are physician-owned and operated by Dr. Paul Flashner and his team of Registered Nurses and Aestheticians. As medical professionals, we are only interested in bringing the most superior, non-invasive technologies to our patients, and that is exactly what the CO2RE is.

There is no doubt in our minds that the CO2RE is the optimal machine for fractional rejuvenation and resurfacing treatments. In fact, prior to the CO2RE, we were not offering ablative treatments since we could not provide you with the highest standard of technology.

The CO2RE is exciting technology for Dr. Flashner and his patients for many reasons including that it is:

  • Versatile – The CO2RE provides us with six different treatment modes to choose from to effectively treat both your skin’s superficial and deeper dermal layers.
  • Precise – The CO2RE gives us strict control over the intensity, pattern and depth of your treatment.
  • Faster Results – For most of your skin damage concerns, you will need only one treatment. Plus, the total time it takes for you to see results is much shorter than with any previous ablation technology, approximately 5-7 days with a lighter treatment and 10-14 days with a deeper treatment.

TechnologyMost important, the CO2RE uses a Fractional Rejuvenation & Resurfacing (or Ablation) procedure, which means that it is far gentler and more effective than the total ablation treatments that leave your skin completely raw and red.

With its fractional resurfacing technology, the CO2RE pinpoints specific places on your skin to treat, while leaving other spots alone. This picture illustrates how the CO2RE technology uses a matrix of laser light points that leave you with some “damaged” skin (the red dots where the skin has been ablated) and some healthy skin (the non-red portions where the skin is intact).

While the damaged skin areas stimulate your body’s natural healing process, growth factors in the skin that has been left alone help you heal faster, have less downtime and achieve better results.

Why SkinMD for your Fractional Rejuvenation & Resurfacing Procedures?

There are currently less than 15 CO2RE machines in Massachusetts, and some of these places do not have the skill or training that you would expect from someone handling complex laser technology. Whereas, at SkinMD, your skin will be carefully assessed by Dr. Flashner, a practicing physician since 1982 who has focused his work for over ten years on non-invasive facial and body aesthetics. In collaboration with a Registered Nurse who has been trained and certified by clinical specialists from Syneron, the manufacturer of the CO2RE, Dr. Flashner will determine the proper laser protocol for your specific skin concerns. To ensure your comfort and safety above all else, you can be confident that either Dr. Flashner or our Registered Nurse will always perform your procedure.

In addition, SkinMD is committed to being leaders in CO2RE resurfacing in Boston, MA, and providing all our staff with continuing education, so it is a priority for us to have our medical staff undergo regularly scheduled follow up trainings with Syneron instructors as well.

Vaginal Fractional Rejuvenation & Resurfacing Treatments with the CO2RE Laser Offers Solutions For All Skin Types

CO2RE treatments could be right for you if you are seeking younger looking skin without the long downtime associated with conventional resurfacing procedures, and particularly if you have skin damaged by exposure to the sun, age spots, fine lines, discoloration, rough texture, and other skin imperfections.

With the CO2RE technology, we are now able to precisely treat every patient’s unique concerns. For example, you may require a light mode or Fractional Rejuvenation, if you want to alleviate pigmentary issues, fine lines and wrinkles, or overall skin tone and complexion issues. Or, if you are like most of our clients, you may need a moderate to deep level of treatment, or Fractional Resurfacing, to address scars and more serious skin damage and imperfections.

Depending on the level of intensity your specific skin concerns require, the downtime and results may differ. However, thanks to this innovative new CO2RE technology, no matter what mode of treatment is used, you are not going to be “out of commission” from your daily routine for months like you could be with a total ablation procedure.

Through SkinMD’s personal consultation process, you will be able to spend time with Dr. Flashner or our Registered Nurse to really understand if this procedure is right for you and how this treatment may affect your skin. In addition, your complimentary consultation will cover:

  • Your overall health and any issues
  • Treatments you’ve had in the past
  • A head to toe assessment
  • Specific solutions that could be right for you

Patients choose SkinMD to look, feel and be their best, but also because we provide them with the most superior treatments in non-invasive aesthetic medicine today. Dr. Flashner and the SkinMD team will do everything in our power to help you achieve your optimal results. This includes offering our patients the most innovative fractional rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment option available today – the CO2RE and its variable treatment modes.

Our 100% commitment to your satisfaction also means that we provide patients like you with affordable payment options and interest-free financing through CareCredit for those eligible. Finally, we will always set realistic goals so that you get what you expect from your services. As you can see, we take your happiness very seriously and we look forward to becoming your aesthetic and skin care partner on this lifelong journey to look, feel, and be your best.
