CoolPeel CO2 Laser
What is a CoolPeel Laser?
CoolPeel is a brand new way to safely and comfortably deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 laser resurfacing treatment while minimizing downtime. By targeting the superficial layer, damaged skin is removed revealing a younger and healthier-looking surface.
How Does the CoolPeel Work?
CoolPeel laser treatment can only be done using the Tetra CO2 laser. Only Tetra technology allows providers the precision and control to deliver energy at the right depth and speed for superficial skin resurfacing without the heat that traditionally may have damaged surrounding skin. This lack of unnecessary heat is where CoolPeel gets its name and why there is an immediate aesthetic effect with minimal downtime.
What Makes CoolPeel Different?
CO2 lasers are the gold standard in treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars and other blemishes and tightening skin and balancing tone. Damaged skin is removed or ablated, stimulating new collagen production as heat energy is delivered to tighten the skin. Depending on the depth of treatment, traditional CO2 treatments can be accompanied by considerable downtime while damaged skin heals.
Many advances have been made to improve the negative effects of CO2 laser treatments, but only the CoolPeel can deliver a fully-ablative treatment without the downtime. In addition, there is minimal risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation or induced infection.
How Long Does a CoolPeel Treatment Take?
A full-face CoolPeel can take anywhere from 10-20 minutes. Treatment to the decolletage and hands is frequently done at the same time. Our patients also have the luxury of combining a Morpheus8 treatment with CoolPeel.
What is the Recovery Time?
One of the main benefits of a CoolPeel is that there is minimal downtime. You can expect your skin to be red for a day or two as if you have a sunburn, but you may maintain your normal activities. Your skin may feel dry and scaly as it heals, so you should keep your skin and body hydrated.
When Can I Return to my Regular Skin Care Regimen?
It is important to stay hydrated following a CoolPeel. Dr. Parry will discuss what you are currently using in your daily skincare routine and instruct you on the best post-treatment care.
Who is a Candidate for CoolPeel?
If you are someone who wants to reduce the appearance of fine lines and sun damage, minimize pores and improve skin texture, you are most likely a good candidate for CoolPeel laser treatment. Your skin will look and feel healthier and younger!
Is CoolPeel Painful?
No, CoolPeel can be done without any numbing. However, both topical numbing or nerve block is available if necessary.
How Many CoolPeel Treatments Will I Need?
Clients will see results with just one treatment, but for best results we suggest a series of three or four treatments spaced 4-5 weeks apart.
