Laser Q&A

COOLPEEL

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 CoolPeel 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 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 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 COOLPEEL?

You are a good candidate for a CoolPeel laser treatment if you are looking to reduces the appearance of fine lines and sun damage, minimize pores and improves skin texture. Your skin will look healthier and younger.

What is my recovery time?

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.

TETRA CO2

How does the TETRA CO2 work?

The Tetra CO2 removes top layers of damaged skin tissue and stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin underneath. Tetra is a CO2 laser- a proven laser technology for treating deeper facial lines, age spots, scarring and textural irregularities. New collagen is formed and elastin is tightened for long- lasting benefits 

What makes the Tetra laser so special?

The Tetra is amongst the newest and most advanced CO2 technologies available as it features more operating settings so providers can better customize the intensity, depth and shape of the laser energy. This unmatched versatility means treatments are even and more precise, optimizing results and minimizing side effects and unnecessary downtime.

Who is a candidate for a Tetra treatment?

With Tetra, your provider can customize your treatment to your skin's exact needs. The Tetra can deliver either an intense treatment to reverse deeper lines and wrinkles, with a week or two of social downtime.

When will I see results?

Results and downtime depend on your individual treatment. You should talk to your physician to understand when you will see your desired outcomes and how much downtime you should expect.
