CO2 laser treatments have been used for decades to resurface the skin and diminish imperfections. Despite their popularity, CO2 laser treatments have previously presented downsides for patients, including post-treatment pain, redness, and the need for downtime.
At Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness in Tampa and St. Petersburg, we’re thrilled to help our patients avoid these downsides with CoolPeel. As the latest CO2 laser treatment to hit the scene, CoolPeel from Cartessa noticeably rejuvenates the skin without the pain and recovery time of conventional lasers.
How is CoolPeel Different?
CoolPeel features the SmartXide Tetra laser from DEKA, which delivers ultra-short pulses of high peak power at low energy levels. The short pulses stimulate the skin’s recovery process for controlled injuries in the epidermis and outermost dermis. However, unlike other aesthetic lasers, the SmartXide Tetra reduces the heat that accumulates in the skin, preventing thermal damage to the surrounding skin.
Providers often recommend a series of three to four CoolPeel treatments, spaced a month apart, for patients to achieve their desired results.
The Benefits of CoolPeel for Common Skin Concerns
CoolPeel offers many notable benefits for people looking to improve the appearance of their skin, including:
- Safe for all skin types
- Effectively treats many common skin concerns, including photodamage, pigmentation, wrinkles, and scarring
- Speed: A full-face CoolPeel only takes five to ten minutes to administer, making it a quick and convenient in-office treatment.
- Comfort: Most patients don’t need a topical anesthetic for comfort during a CoolPeel, and it involves minimal post-treatment pain.
- Short recovery: Patients usually only need a day of downtime after a CoolPeel. For reference, a typical laser resurfacing treatment requires a week or longer of downtime.
