What is CoolPeel™ CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?
The CoolPeel™ treatment utilizes advanced CO2 laser technology—delivered with H-pulse, a proprietary high-peak-power short pulse—to bring about improvements in skin quality and appearance with minimal downtime.
The benefits of a customized CoolPeel™ can include a reduction in the presence of fine lines and visible signs of sun damage, as well as the achievement of softer, smoother skin texture and diminished pore size. Patients who choose CoolPeel™ treatments typically notice their skin looks more youthful, refreshed, and refined.
The beauty of the CoolPeel™ CO2 laser procedure is that we can customize the treatment to each of patient’s desired results and downtime. It's recommended that patient’s consider a commitment to doing a minimum of three CoolPeel™ procedures that can be scheduled at the convenience of each patient’s personal schedule and lifestyle.
What is the CoolPeel Process Like?
If you desire younger and healthier skin, without the trade-offs of other cosmetic treatments, CoolPeel is for you!
CoolPeel™ is a great way to rejuvenate skin that is beginning to show lines and laxity and can help to push back the aging process, so patients do not have to consider other more invasive alternatives including surgery. CoolPeel™ is also used for patients who are of the “prejuvenation” population who want to prevent the signs of aging before they appear or become constantly and highly visible.
The process to achieve those results is also hassle-free:
A full-face CoolPeel takes about 5 to 15 minutes.
Treatment is so well-tolerated that anesthesia or localized numbing agents aren’t necessary; your clinician may discuss if topical products are appropriate (for added comfort).
Common side effects are minimal and temporary, with skin usually looking and feeling like a mild to moderate sunburn that subsides around one to two days post-procedure.
You can get back to regular activities immediately following treatment. Just take care to follow instructions provided by SKIN 101 for instance, avoid exposing your skin to the sun or sweating (no super-intense workouts) in the hours following treatment. It’s also important to prevent the skin from drying out, a barrier cream along with growth factors and a oxygen cool misting spray may be used for hydration and comfort. With the fractional ablative Tetra Co2 procedure you must resist the urge to cover lingering pink or red discoloration with makeup for at least 24 hours after treatment – let your skin breathe! It will help you to heal.
However, with the coolpeel procedure you may use some types of mineral makeup right after the procedure as long as you are keeping the area moist and protected from the sun by using non chemical UVA & UVB sun protection. Our team of experts are happy to help you with selecting which formula is best.
