CoolPeel CO2 Laser

The Tetra CO2 laser, which is commonly known as the “CoolPeel® laser”, is the only technology that can perform a CoolPeel. The CoolPeel leverages the exclusive H-Pulse: a high-peak-power short pulse that delivers a fully-ablative treatment without causing thermal damage to surrounding tissue. Without thermal damage, downtime is drastically minimized. At the same time, the system delivers impressive superficial, skin-resurfacing results. Improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, pore size, and skin texture.

CO2 Laser Pre-Care
Moisturize skin at least 2x a day (AM/PM)
Increase water intake to a minimum of 8 glasses of water per day.
Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun.
Use a Zinc Oxide sunscreen of at least SPF 30+
*We will not treat skin if it is burned or otherwise compromised during this prep time*
Stop any topical retinoid therapy 3-4 days prior to treatment.
If you have a history of cold sores or HSV1 you need to start your antiviral prophylaxis 5 days prior to procedure.
Stay out of the sun.
CO2 Laser Post Care
Patient should feel a warm/sunburn sensation for a couple hours post treatment.
A light, non-burning, cream-based moisturizer should be used on the treated area.
Keep the area hydrated with the moisturizer. Do not let the skin dry out.
Sleep with a clean pillowcase and head slightly elevated.
Avoid sun exposure, intense workouts and sweating per provider instructions.
Do not expose the treated area to anything that may cause complications (dirt, pets, etc.) as advised by your provider.
Skin should feel rough like sandpaper for 4-7 (or more based on treatment area) days post treatment.
A cool misting spray may be used for comfort, if needed.
CoolPeel can be repeated on a monthly basis until desired results are achieved.
MAKEUP APPLICATION POST TREATMENT: It is best to leave your skin without any make-up for at least 24 hours. You can then utilize a clean applicator to apply mineral makeup to ensure you maintain clear pores, allowing your skin to breathe and heal properly over time.

ANTICIPATED DOWNTIME: One of the main benefits of a CoolPeel is the 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.
