What is CO2RE

The CO2RE system is the first fully-integrated CO2 laser with 100+ indications cleared in 10 medical specialties, including dermatology, plastic surgery, and gynecology.1

Imagine having one system designed for numerous procedures that require excision, incision, ablation, coagulation, and resurfacing of soft tissue. It’s here. With the CO2RE system, you can precisely target and efficiently treat the skin with control.

How it works

CO2RE Innovation: Variable treatment modes

The CO2RE system provides a total of six different treatment modes, including four fractional ablative treatment modes, five pattern shapes, a traditional resurfacing mode, and an excision mode that includes defined shape and freehand modes for minor dermal excisions.

System Highlights

The CO2RE system gives you the ability to treat both superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously with precision control over the intensity, pattern, and depth of ablation, with a single platform. You’ll also experience the versatility of 3 modules—Aesthetic, Surgical, and Intima.

  • Treat multiple skin layers in one pass
  • Perform full and fractional resurfacing
  • Enhance coagulation
  • Encourage neocollagenis
