How It Works

Tetra CoolPeel CO2 is a one-of-a-kind laser that will completely rejuvenate your skin, without the downtime of traditional CO2 lasers. It offers fully customizable skin resurfacing treatments to improve signs of aging like wrinkles, sunspots, and uneven texture.

CoolPeel laser treatment can only be done using the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser. The Tetra is the latest, most advanced CO2 laser from DEKA, a global leader in aesthetic technology. Only Tetra can control its output to deliver high energy in extremely short pulses to deliver impressive superficial, skin resurfacing results without the lingering heat that would traditionally damage the surrounding skin

The Science Behind The Treatment

C02 laser resurfacing uses pulses of laser light. These beams penetrate the skin’s surface, where water in the skin cells absorbs them. When this happens, the epidermis, or superficial layer of your skin, is vaporized. The dermis, or middle layer, heats up, stimulating the growth of new collagen fibers.

How to Prepare

A full-face CoolPeel laser peel can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes.

What to Expect

Before you arrive

There isn’t any need for localized anesthesia with CoolPeel treatments. We apply topical numbing cream across the treatment areas to ensure your comfort.

After Treatment

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. One of the benefits of this treatment is that results continue to improve over the next 3-6 months as the deeper layer of the skin continues to heal and improve.

What It Will Feel Like

We use a cold air chiller to cool the area while the treatment is administered.

Post-procedure Care

You will start noticing improvements after one week. The collagen production has been stimulated, and your skin resurfacing has begun. You will see real improvements as your outermost layers of damaged, dull skin cells are shed and replaced with younger, healthy cells.
