CO2 CoolPeel BLOG
Rejuvenate your skin with this dynamic fractional laser!The Tetra CO2 with CoolPeel is a fractional CO2 laser used for skin rejuvenation, reducing the appearance of age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, skin laxity, textural irregularities, dull skin tone and a thinned collagen layer of the face, neck, and chest.
What makes the CoolPeel Treatment different from other laser treatments?CO2 lasers have been the gold standard in treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes, as well as tightening skin and balance tone. With regular CO2 treatments, there is considerable downtime while the treated skin heals. However, the CoolPeel has the ability to deliver a fully ablative treatment without significant to minimal downtime.
Is the treatment painful?
Discomfort varies on the depth of the treatment and each individual client’s response to the chosen treatment plan. For your comfort, our providers always apply a topical numbing cream to help reduce discomfort. We also use this alongside our Sub Z cooling device for minimal discomfort. Additionally, the settings can always be adjusted to tailor to any pain level tolerance.
How long does the treatment take?CoolPeel Laser Treatments range between 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on which area isbeing treated and how many passes are performed during the treatment.
What are some commonly treated issues??Although the Tetra CO2 features a unique CoolPeel function for little to no downtime, it is still capable of delivering a deep or more aggressive treatment as well. Here are some commonly treated problems:
• Skin rejuvenation
• Fine lines/wrinkles
• Age spots
• Skin texture
• Acne scars
• Loose skin
What should I expect post treatment?
Immediate results will vary depending on the level of treatment performed. Downtime is minimal for clients that choose CoolPeel treatment. Some redness is expected for approximately 24hours followed by light peeling for 3-5 days post treatment.
Strict adherence to post treatment guidelines is important for optimal healing. Use of amoisturizer and sunscreen is important during the healing process and for the weeks andmonths following treatment. You will see a significant improvement within a month that will continue for 4-6 months.
Am I a good candidate for CO2 CoolPeel treatment?
You are a good candidate if you are looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve sun damage, even out skin tone and/or improve overall skin texture. The CoolPeel treatment is recommended for our patients with a busy lifestyle. We frequently combine this with our Virtue RF as a series for the ultimate duo!
When can I resume my normal skincare routine post treatment?
After your CoolPeel treatment, it is essential to keep your skin hydrated, and there may be specific products you should avoid. Talk to your provider about the best post-treatment care and when to return to your daily skincare regimen.
