What is a Combination Peel?
Our Combination Peel in Troy, MI, consists of two separate treatments: CoolPeel and Morpheus8. We’ve combined these treatments because, while they’re effective on their own, when paired together, they can offer substantial skin clearing results. At Tri-County, we do our best to make things easier on the patient. Rather than recommending two separate treatments, we’ve decided to bundle them, so you can get clearer skin without doing all the work yourself. CoolPeel and Morpherus8 are both safe, convenient treatments that can allow you to do away with common skin concerns, like acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, and more.
CoolPeel can resurface your skin with the help of an advanced CO2 laser. When you picture a laser treatment, you might expect to experience intense heat and irritation. But the CoolPeel is actually designed to mitigate heat, so the process will be much more comfortable. The CoolPeel is also heavily customizable. We know the quality of our patients’ skin varies wildly from person to person, so it was important to us that we found a treatment that can work on different types of skin. Whether you’re using CoolPeel for acne scarring or wrinkles, you’ll be impressed by the quality and the longevity of the results.
Morpheus8 is a microneedling procedure that can help clear up skin. It works by treating deep in the skin to induce collagen production. Collagen is a naturally occurring biological material that helps skin grow healthy and strong, so when we kick-start the process, we’re manually forcing your skin to repair itself. Morpheus8’s fractional technology actually reaches deeper than any other microneedling device currently on the market. While many of our patients choose to use this treatment on their face, Morpheus8 can actually firm and tighten skin anywhere on the body. You may notice results in a couple of weeks, and they can last for half a year!

When preparing for the Combination Peel in Troy, MI, it’s important to account for both the CoolPeel and Morpheus8 processes. The CoolPeel process is the shortest of the two, lasting anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. However, if you wish to schedule a deeper treatment with the Tetra CO2, then we will have to apply a topical anesthetic an hour before the treatment begins.
The Morpheus8 procedure may last a little longer, depending on the patient. On average, the treatment may last anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. Once the process is over, we apply healing sunscreen and lotions. We also give you an opportunity to ask any further questions you may have about the recovery process. All told, the entirety of the Morpheus8 treatment may last up to 2 hours.
So, when combined with the CoolPeel, you’ll only need to spend a few hours to see skin clearing results!
The Combination Peel will result in some apparent but temporary effects. The CoolPeel will leave you with sensitive skin that feels most similar to a sunburn. Fortunately, the recovery time after a CoolPeel treatment is minimal. You will notice rougher skin and slight redness for up to 3 days. However, if you’re treated with the more intense Tetra CO2 laser, this may last up to 6 days.
The Morpheus8 treatment has similar side effects. The treatment feels like being plucked with tweezers, and you may feel skin irritation for around 4 days following the procedure. You can help minimize recovery time by avoiding direct exposure to the sun and moisturizing the treatment area.
You may notice the results of the CoolPeel treatment in as little as a single week. The results of the Morpheus8 will appear a week after that. Both of these procedures offer long-lasting effects. You may notice improvements in your skin quality for up to 6 months. Both treatments require at least 3 sessions, each of which must be performed in 4-week intervals. This makes it convenient—you can receive 2 maintenance treatments in the same appointment!
How Does the Combination Peel Work?
Here’s a look at how the Combination Peel will work.
The Combination Peel is designed to stimulate collagen growth for the formation of healthier skin. The CoolPeel works like a traditional laser treatment, using ablation to resurface skin and trigger the body’s natural healing processes. Luckily, the treatment does not have the same excess heat that is traditionally associated with a laser treatment. The Morpheus8 creates microscopic wounds and uses radiofrequency to further stimulate collagen production. These two treatments work hand-in-hand to force the body to create healthier, stronger skin.
Upon arrival, you will meet with our medical aesthetician and a cosmetic physician for a complimentary cosmetic consultation. Together, you’ll discuss if you are a good candidate for the Combination Peel in Troy, MI, as well as what to expect during and immediately post-treatment.
First, the CoolPeel CO2 laser delivers short pulses of high energy into the skin. The short pulses ensure that there is no lasting damage done by the laser. This is what designates the laser as a “cool” laser. The CoolLaser offers the practitioners a high degree of control, so it can be equipped to treat any patient’s skin type. The Morpheus8 works differently. Thanks to the microneedling process, radiofrequency waves can move deep through the skin. These treatments force the body to begin the collagen production process, leaving the patient with healthier skin.
The Combination Peel is especially effective for the treatment of superficial to deep acne scarring as well as fine to deep wrinkles, enlarged pores, and skin tone and texture. It can also help treat loose, sagging, crepey skin on the face and neck. While the Morpheus8 treatment is safe for all skin types (including African American skin), the CoolPeel is only safe for Fitzpatrick l-lV skin types. CoolPeel can be used on other areas of the skin besides the face, including the hands, neck, and décolletage. Results of the Combination Peel can be noticed within 1–2 weeks, but the produced collagen will only continue to improve your skin over the next 6 months, over the course of 3 sessions.

About Combination Peel at TLC Acne and Rosacea Center
Our unique facility is specially designed to provide the safe and effective treatment you need.
The Combination Peel includes both the CoolPeel and Morpheus8 treatments, each of which is designed to stimulate collagen growth and promote the production of healthier skin. The two treatments work together to offer skin clearing results. CoolPeel CO2 uses laser skin resurfacing to deliver energy into the dermis in short bursts, minimizing both damage and downtime. Morpheus8 causes collagen growth in a completely different way. With revolutionary microneedling methods, Morpheus8 primes the skin for better radiofrequency absorption. When combined, CoolPeel and Morpheus8 can help treat superficial to deep acne scarring, fine to deeper wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, enlarged pores, and loose, crepey skin on the face and neck.

About Acne Scarring Reduction at TLC Acne and Rosacea Treatment Center
Our acne and rosacea center is dedicated to helping you look your best.
We have designed a results-oriented and effective protocol for the treatment of acne scarring utilizing some of the most powerful aesthetic laser devices on the market. Laser skin resurfacing treatment is a highly effective procedure for the improvement of acne scars; it can drastically soften and minimize the scarred tissue. With the emergence of new laser technologies in the last few years, significant improvement can be accomplished. The choice of a modality- if it is the non-ablative LaseMD fractional laser, the fractional ablative CO2 CoolPeel /Tetra laser or the fractional RF microneedling Morpheus8 – will depend on the type , depth, and severity of the scars as well as the patient’s lifestyle and tolerance for downtime.
