What is the CoolPeel Tetra CO2 Laser?
A CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser is an ablative laser that sends intense infrared light to the top layers of the skin. It is used to get rid of sun damage, aging, scars, wrinkles, and harmless skin growths like moles and skin tags that are visible on the skin. CO2 laser treatment is a popular way to resurface the skin because it causes little pain, can be done quickly and makes a big difference in the quality of the skin without the risks of surgery.
CoolPeel is a revolutionary next-generation Tetra CO2 Laser technology that gives you all the benefits of traditional CO2 lasers without any downtime. A CoolPeel treatment is an in-office procedure that doesn’t hurt or cut the skin and works on the top layer of the skin. It gets rid of sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, rosacea, large pores, and other skin problems to make the skin look smoother, healthier, younger, and more even-toned.
What is better about the Tetra CO2 Laser than other CO2 lasers?
CO2 lasers hurt or damage the skin to do their job. They take off the epidermis (the skin’s top layer) and heat the dermis (middle layer). This causes the dermis to make more collagen. As the epidermis heals and grows back, the skin looks smoother, clearer, and tighter. But because the top layer of skin is taken off, CO2 laser treatment usually means taking a week off.
The Tetra CO2 laser, which is the most modern and up-to-date CO2 laser, is used to do a CoolPeel treatment. The Tetra CO2 Laser is different because it uses a very short light pulse to send a lot of energy to the skin. This means that our licensed aesthetician can keep the damage to the top layer of skin to a minimum. There is also less heat buildup in the tissues around the skin and less heat that stays in the skin. Because of this, treatments with CoolPeel cause less redness, peeling, and flaking of the skin than treatments with traditional CO2 lasers. Also, CoolPeel uses a spray pattern that cuts the treatment time from 1 to 2 hours with traditional CO2 lasers to about 10 minutes with CoolPeel.
What should you expect from a CoolPeel treatment?
At your first consultation, our aesthetic provider will listen to your concerns and talk to you about the benefits of CoolPeel treatments. If you are a good candidate for CoolPeel, pictures of you “before” the treatment will be taken so that you can see how your skin changes. Before your CoolPeel appointment, you should try to stay out of the sun as much as possible. Our licensed aesthetician will also give you a list of medicines, like retinol and salicylic/glycolic acids, that you need to stop taking before your Tetra CO2 laser appointments.
The CoolPeel treatment only takes about ten to fifteen minutes. Our aesthetician will clean your skin and put a numbing cream on it. This will take about 30 minutes. The laser will be put on the area that needs to be treated. After that, your skin may be a little red and feel a little rough. For the first day or two, your skin may look like it has a slight sunburn on it. As it heals, it may also feel dry and scaly. You can lessen these effects by drinking lots of water, using a cooling mist spray, and staying out of the sun as much as you can.
What does it cost to use CoolPeel?
The price of a CoolPeel Tetra CO2 laser treatment can vary from place to place and depend on your skin type and how badly your skin is damaged. As a general guideline, CoolPeel costs $800.00 per treatment. Depending on what you want to get out of CoolPeel, you may need more than one treatment. Most people will need anywhere from two to three treatments.
Is Tetra CO2 Laser CoolPeel right for me?
CoolPeel is a new kind of skin resurfacing treatment that doesn’t hurt or cut the skin. It is used to reduce the visible signs of aging and sun damage. Our aestheticians will talk to you about your skin problems and goals, then tell you if CoolPeel is right for you.
How soon can I go back to work after getting CoolPeel?
The best thing about CoolPeel treatments is that they can be changed so that you can take as much or as little time off as you want. In other words, the CoolPeel treatment can be made more or less harsh. If you don’t mind having a little more downtime, you can make the CoolPeel treatment more aggressive to get better results. On the other hand, the CoolPeel treatment can be turned down to a lower setting if you want to have little or no downtime.
How many times will I need CoolPeel?
The more aggressive your CoolPeel treatments, the fewer sessions you will need. Most of the time, less aggressive CoolPeel treatments take 3–4 sessions to get the same results as more aggressive ones. Most CoolPeel treatments are spaced out by 4 to 6 weeks to give the skin time to heal.
Is CoolPeel painful?
How soon will I see results from using CoolPeel? How long are they going to last?
Will I need to do something different with my skincare after CoolPeel?
After a CoolPeel treatment, your skin may feel dry and a little rough (like sandpaper) for a few days. Our aesthetics team may suggest that you use some skin care on the treated area for a few days to keep the skin from drying out. For comfort, you can also use a cool spray that mists.
For the first week after getting CoolPeel, it’s best to stay out of the sun and stay away from workouts that make you sweat a lot.
While your skin is healing from the CoolPeel treatment, you should use a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. You can exfoliate your skin after the first week. Also, don’t wear any makeup for the first 24 hours. After that, you can use mineral makeup that lets your skin breathe.
