CO2 CoolPeel Laser Treatment
The Tetra laser is designed to deliver high power in extremely short pulses, which creates a controlled injury below the skin producing collagen and elastin to rebuild the structure of your skin.
The laser does cause mild to moderate discomfort depending on which setting is being used. We do apply topical anesthetic to help relieve any discomfort you may feel during the time of your treatment. Most people complain of their face feeling “warm” immediately after treatment, which is due to the laser producing heat while penetrating your skin. This is reduced by forced cool air.
Patients can see visible results of lightened sun spots, and smoothed / even skin texture after one treatment once you have healed. To see the full correction it is recommended to do 3 – 4 CoolPeel treatments. You will continue to build collagen for UP TO 3 months after treatment.
You are a good candidate for the CoolPeel if you are looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sun damage, pores, and improve skin texture. You will look healthier and rejuvenated!
After your treatment, it is important to keep your skin hydrated and protected from the sun. There will also be certain products you may need to avoid prior to your treatment and while you are healing. Be sure to ask one of our providers before your scheduled laser treatment for your specific skin care needs and post-treatment care.
