Cool Peel CO2 laser technology is safe, comfortable, and effective. It's a treatment that we can offer in our office without the need for invasive surgery and without the need for much downtime. The SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser device has the ability to perform a broad range of treatments including a CoolPeel® treatment.
Co2 lasers are the gold standard for treating:
Laser resurfacing naturally stimulates collagen production to restore elasticity, and bring new youthful skin to the surface all in as little as one session. CO2 laser therapy utilizes high-energy light to remove the dead tissues and promote cell turnover in the epidermal and dermal layers of your skin. Fractional CO2 lasers break up this light energy into thousands of tiny beams to deliver a more precise treatment and reduce your recovery time.
What are the benefits of CoolPeel?
The CoolPeel setting on this device delivers high levels of energy in extremely short pulses while targeting just the superficial layer of skin. This reduces the amount of residual heat and eliminates any unnecessary trauma to the skin, so we are able to provide gentle treatments.
Most importantly, patients who get a CoolPeel prefer the quicker recovery and are better able to schedule multiple CoolPeels rather than take a week or two off for an aggressive laser resurfacing. The CoolPeel option that is available on the Tetra will only give you 1-2 days of redness. At this point, the only noticeable difference is that your skin will look normal. It will only feel a little rough and dry. Once you pass the rough skin (not noticeable) stage of healing, your skin will feel tighter, softer, and look more even.
In addition to treating the full face, this form of skin resurfacing is often used to target fine lines and wrinkles on the hands, neck, as well as chest area.
If you are interested in CoolPeel treatments but want to pack a more powerful punch, your practitioner may recommend combining CoolPeel with other skin-improving technologies to achieve impressive results while maintaining low downtime.
Aside from being gold-standard solutions for sun damage and scars, ablative resurfacing lasers can destroy most, if not all, pre-cancerous cells in the skin.
What if I want a more aggressive laser treatment?
The Tetra laser has the ability to be increased for patients who have acne scars or deep wrinkles for more dramatic improvements. This allows flexibility so the treatment can be fine-tuned to each patient’s goals. Whether you are looking for a CoolPeel® with minimal downtime, a treatment for the delicate area around the eyes, or a one-week surface ablation of wrinkles, this Tetra CO2 Laser interface will allow us to deliver treatments with unparalleled precision. It’s a one-of-a-kind CO2 laser for acne scars, wrinkles, dark spots, sun spots, and more.
Laser resurfacing has been an incredibly beneficial technology but is only efficient in the right hands. It is extremely important that you consult with an experienced and qualified provider. Also, since not everyone is a good candidate for laser resurfacing, we recommend that you schedule a consultation so that we can evaluate your skin and discuss the best treatment options for you
