CoolPeel CO2 Laser Treatment
- Reduce fine lines
- Minimize sun damage and pore size
- Improve skin texture
- Without any real downtime
At Allenby Cosmetic Dermatology, we are thrilled to offer CoolPeel laser treatments! CoolPeel is an innovative way to safely, and comfortably, deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment. By targeting only the superficial layer of skin tissue, damaged skin is removed, revealing younger and healthier-looking skin.
CO2 lasers have long been the gold standard in treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes as well as tighten skin and balance tone. Traditional CO2 treatments however have long been associated with considerable downtime. The precision and the control of the CoolPeel allows you to get the skin resurfacing benefits without downtime and risk.
COOLPEEL CO2 LASER BENEFITS
CoolPeel CO2 laser treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots, and pore size. Unlike traditional laser treatments, CoolPeel creates fractional deposits of laser energy, which allows for faster healing and improved skin texture after the session.
The CoolPeel CO2 laser also corrects acne scars and rosacea. The fractional laser beams vaporize the skin’s outer layers to resurface the skin and increase collagen production.
Other skin problems that CoolPeel CO2 laser can treat include hyperpigmentation, age spots, sagging skin, sun damage, uneven skin tone, and warts.
All of these can be treated with no downtime, thanks to the cooling technology of the CoolPeel CO2 laser.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR A COOLPEEL CO2 LASER TREATMENT
Before undergoing a CoolPeel CO2 laser treatment, you must prepare properly to get the best results and avoid unwanted complications. Do not take retinoids, blood-thinning medications, or certain herbal supplements for at least 5 days before your treatment.
Protect yourself from the sun two weeks before your CoolPeel appointment. Overexposing your skin to light can result in more pigmentation.
Make sure to purchase skincare products that will assist in healing before your CoolPeel treatment session. Since the treated skin will peel as part of skin resurfacing, you must follow Dr. Allenby’s advice when purchasing a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen that matches your skin needs.
Coolpeel Before & After
Have a Question?
Here are our answers to your most frequently asked questions.
What is CoolPeel?
CoolPeel 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 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?
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 candidate for CoolPeel
You are a good candidate for CoolPeel laser treatment if you are looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and sun damage, minimize pores and improve skin texture. Your skin will look healthier and younger.
How long does a CoolPeel take?
A full-face CoolPeel laser peel can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes.
Is anesthesia or numbing required?
While there is no need for anesthesia or localized numbing, your provider may use a numbing cream for additional comfort.
How much does a CoolPeel CO2 laser treatment cost?
Price varies from patient to patient. The total cost of a CoolPeel CO2 laser treatment will depend on factors like the number of sessions you need to undergo in order to achieve your appearance goals.
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.
When can I return to my skincare routine?
After your CoolPeel 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.
