What's the difference between C02RE and Juvederm?

28th April 2013

First things first, what does each treatment involve? C02RE uses high-tech laser energy to target both superficial and deeper layers of your skin to promote facial rejuvenation.

This treatment is ideal for skin resurfacing, uneven skin tone, scar revision and more to achieve an overall smoother, more even complexion. The laser's energy stimulates the formation of collagen which continues to create younger-looking skin long after you leave the clinic.

What makes C02RE unique to other procedures is the advantage of 4 treatment modes. From improving the appearance of pores to working deep into the dermis to reduce the appearance of acne scars, whatever the skin concern, the advanced C02RE laser has a treatment mode for you. This treatment can produce dramatic results without the associated cost and downtime of invasive surgery.

Juvederm on the other hand, is a brand name for a treatment that involves injecting a substance, usually Hyaluronic Acid into the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds. The way it works is by plumping up the skin to “fill out” the lines and wrinkles, which leaves a smoother, natural-looking effect. This procedure is suitable for people who want to combat the signs of ageing or dealing with the effects of excessive exposure to UV rays.

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring liquid substance in human skin that aids damaged tissue repair through stem cell treatment. In terms of Juvederm the Hyaluronic Acid is chemically altered to produce a gel to let it last longer before being metabolised by the patient's body. This component can bind with the material that supports facial skin, collagen to allow natural nutrients to flow to the skin.

It's clear to see that C02RE and Juvederm are distinctly different treatments. One uses advanced laser technology whilst the other involves the process of injecting a substance into the skin. As with any medical procedure, both treatments are only safe when carried out by qualified professionals such as those at sk:n. Book your consultation today.
