Cool Peel is a thorough multitasking treatment that ultimately stimulates collagen. Most desired outcomes require a minimum of three treatments.
What will it do for me?[B]righten, [L]ighten, and [T]ighten. This is an amazing resurfacing treatment that will break up pigment, smooth texture, fine lines, and wrinkles leaving the skin bright and dewey.
What should I do to prepare for it?
Avoid sun, spray tans or any artificial tanning agents. Stop retinol forty-eight hours before treatment. Hydrate.
How long is downtime (time after treatment)?
From start to finish, count on about five days. While swelling is not typical, it can happen, especially around the eye area. For example, swelling can be a bit more severe if you have filler under the eye. The first day will feel like a sunburn. Day two can feel a bit tender or raw, but most redness should be better if not gone. If you are going to swell, it will be by day two.
The following few days, you are likely to have “microscabs” develop which will give your face a sandpaper-like texture. You will want to rub them. Do not. At this stage, you might feel a little tight or itchy so have a calming cream or oil to use as needed. The texture will naturally slough off.

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 A 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 Cool Peel can deliver a fractional ablative treatment without the downtime. There is minimal risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation or induced infection.
HOW DOES COOLPEEL WORK?
A Cool Peel laser treatment can only be done using the Smart Xide 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 and how you get an immediate aesthetic effect with minimal downtime.
HOW LONG DOES COOLPEEL TAKE?
A full- face Cool Peel laser peel can take anywhere from 5 – 15 minutes.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A 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.
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.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME FOR COOLPEEL?
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 Cool Peel 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.
