DEKA CO2 Laser

Laser Peels are typically associated with 1-2 days of downtime and CoolPeel treatments can range from 3-5 days of recovery with minimal symptoms. Since it is a stronger treatment with fewer sessions, the DEKA Pulse laser treatment is associated with 7-14 days of downtime. The DEKA treatment can reduce, and in some cases eliminate, signs of aging for dramatically smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
