At Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness in South Florida, we work hard to stay at the cutting edge of aesthetic treatments. So, we’re proud to offer the latest CO2 laser treatment for skin enhancement: CoolPeel from Cartessa.
CoolPeel is a laser treatment that safely and noticeably rejuvenates the skin without the discomfort and downtime associated with conventional laser resurfacing. It’s an excellent option to correct skin’s superficial texture, especially around the eyes.
Read on to learn more about this exciting addition to our aesthetic service offerings in Tampa and St. Petersburg.
How Does CoolPeel Work?
CoolPeel from Cartessa uses the SmartXide Tetra laser from DEKA. Considered the most progressive CO2 laser available, the SmartXide Tetra administers short pulses of high peak power at low energy levels. These ultra-short pulses of peak power create controlled injury to the epidermis and outermost dermis while limiting the amount of heat that builds up in the skin. This reduces thermal damage to the surrounding skin while effectively stimulating collagen formation.
Remarkably, a full-face CoolPeel typically only takes five to 10 minutes to administer, and most patients don’t require a topical anesthetic for comfort. To achieve the desired results, your provider may recommend three to four CoolPeel treatments, with a month in between each treatment.
How Long Does It Take To Recover From CoolPeel?
With the unique capabilities of the SmartXide Tetra laser, patients typically only require a day of downtime after a CoolPeel treatment, after which they can return to work. This is far less than the typical laser resurfacing treatment, which often requires a week or longer for recovery. Keep in mind that you may want to wear makeup to work a day after your CoolPeel to cover up any lingering redness.
