A CoolPeel is a new way to leverage the power of CO2 laser technology to achieve unparalleled results. Carbon dioxide lasers have long been the gold standard in skin resurfacing, but those outstanding results come at a cost.
Significant swelling, redness, and discomfort are common after CO2 laser treatments. With CoolPeel, you get the same impressive results without significant downtime or side effects.
CoolPeel treatments are a form of fractional ablative treatment. That means the system uses carefully controlled laser energy to remove the outermost layers of skin to reveal a layer of fresh, healthy cells. Wrinkles, lines, blemishes, scar tissue, and age spots are also removed.
Not only do CoolPeel treatments immediately remove many common skin issues, but they also prompt your body to create new collagen and elastin. That means you’ll continue to see improvements for weeks after your session.
When you arrive for your treatment, you’ll relax comfortably in the treatment chair. If needed, your practitioner applies a numbing cream to the treatment area to reduce sensations during your session.
The Tetra CO2 CoolPeel treatment handpiece is then moved across the surface of your skin. CoolPeel technology allows your practitioner to customize the strength of your treatments. If you have significant acne scarring, substantial skin laxity, or deeper lines and wrinkles, the system can be “turned up.” The Tetra CO2 CoolPeel treatment can treat minor skin issues at a lower setting.
Most people easily tolerate their CoolPeel treatments. If you do experience sensations, they might feel like mild stinging or burning. The entire treatment usually takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish.
Recovering after a CoolPeel is far easier than the process that follows traditional CO2 laser treatments. A degree of redness and minor swelling is to be expected for a day or two after your treatment, but you won’t need to hide your skin as it heals.
It’s essential to keep your skin adequately moisturized and protect yourself from sun exposure. Your practitioner will advise you on which products to use in the initial days after your treatment. Within a few days, you’ll be able to return to your regular skin care routine, but you might want to refrain from using harsh scrubs or certain chemical exfoliants for a week or more.
