A Kailua dermatologist uses a CO2 laser to resurface skin, targeting fine lines, wrinkles, and scars for a smoother appearance.


CO2RE Laser Resurfacing is a dermatology procedure that uses fractional CO2 laser technology to rejuvenate the skin. It's designed to treat a variety of skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and sun damage. At our clinic in Kailua, Hawaii, dermatologists use this procedure to help patients achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

CO2RE Laser Resurfacing is effective for targeting specific skin layers, allowing precise treatment while minimizing damage to surrounding tissue. This results in a more comfortable recovery process compared to traditional laser resurfacing techniques.


CO2 laser at Kailua dermatology clinics reduces wrinkles, corrects pigmentation, and improves skin texture.

The benefits of CO2RE Laser Resurfacing include reduced appearance of wrinkles and scars, improved skin texture, and overall skin rejuvenation. This procedure is highly customizable, allowing dermatologists to adjust the intensity based on the patient's skin type and desired results.

Procedure Overview

The session can take from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the treatment area. Recovery time varies, with most patients experiencing redness and swelling for a few days.
