WHAT IS COOLPEEL?
Cool Peel is a brand new way to safely, and comfortably deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment. By targeting just the superficial layer of skin tissue, damaged skin is removed revealing younger and healthier looking skin.
WHAT MAKES COOLPEEL DIFFERENT?
CO2 lasers are the gold standard in treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes as well as tighten skin and balance tone.
Damaged skin tissue is removed, or ablated, stimulating new collagen production and heat energy is delivered to tighten the skin. Sounds great but CO2 treatments are often accompanied by considerable downtime and risk while damaged skin heals. Many advances have been made to improve the side effects of CO2 treatments but ONLY the Cool Peel can deliver a fractional ablative treatment without the downtime. There is minimal risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation or induced infection.
HOW DOES THE COOLPEEL WORK?
A Cool Peel laser treatment can only be done using the Smart Xide 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 l ingering heat that would traditionally damage the surrounding skin. The lack of unnecessary heat is why we call it cool – get it? – and how you get an immediate aesthetic effect with minimal downtime.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A COOLPEEL?
You are a good candidate for a Cool Peel laser treatment if you are looking to reduces the appearance of f ine l ines and sun damage, minimize pores and improves skin texture. Your skin will look healthier and younger.
HOW LONG DOES A COOLPEEL TAKE?
A full- face Cool Peel laser peel can take anywhere from 5 - 15 minutes.
IS ANESTHEISA OR NUMBING REQUIRED?
While there is no need for anesthesia or localized numbing, your provider may use a numbing cream for additional comfort.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME FOR COOLPEEL?
One of the main benefits of a Cool Peel, is that there is minimal downtime. You should expect to be a l ittle 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.
WHEN CAN I RETURN TO MY SKINCARE ROUTINE?
After your Cool Peel treatment, it is important to keep your skin hydrated and there may be certain products you should avoid. Talk to your provider about the best post- treatment care and when you can return to your daily skincare regimen.
