What is COOLPEEL™?
CoolPeel is a brand new way to safely and comfortably deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment. By targeting just the superficial layer of skin tissue, damaged skin is removed revealing younger and healthier-looking skin.
What Makes COOLPEEL™ Different?
CO2 lasers are the gold standard in treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars and other blemishes as well as tighten skin and balance tone. Damaged skin tissue is removed, or ablated, stimulating new collagen production as heat energy is delivered to tighten the skin. Depending on the depth of treatment, CO2 treatments can be accompanied by considerable downtime while damaged skin heals.
Many advances have been made to improve the side effects of CO2 treatments, but only the CoolPeel can deliver a fully ablative treatment without downtime. There is minimal risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation, or induced infection.
How Does the COOLPEEL™ Work?
CoolPeel laser treatment can only be done using the Tetra CO2 laser. Only the Tetra has the precision and control to deliver energy at the right depth and speed for superficial skin resurfacing results without the lingering heat that would traditionally damage the surrounding skin. This lack of unnecessary heat is where it gets its name and why you get an immediate aesthetic effect with minimal downtime.
Who Is a Candidate for COOLPEEL™?
You are a good candidate for CoolPeel laser treatment if you are looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and sun damage, minimize pores and improve skin texture. Skin will look healthier and younger.
How Long Does a COOLPEEL™ Take?
A full-face CoolPeel laser peel can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes.
Is Anesthesia or Numbing Required?
While there is no need for anesthesia or localized numbing, your provider may use a numbing cream for additional comfort.
What Is My Recovery Time?
One of the main benefits of a CoolPeel is that there is minimal downtime. You should expect to be a little red, as if you have a sunburn, for a day or two, but nothing should prevent you from returning to your normal daily activities. Your skin may feel dry and scaly as it heals so it is important to keep the skin hydrated.
When Can I Return to My Skincare Routine?
After your CoolPeel treatment, it is important to keep your skin hydrated and there may be certain products you should avoid. Talk to your provider about the best post-treatment care and when you can return to your daily skincare regimen.
