What is CoolPeel CO2 Laser?
This safe and effective fractional CO2 skin resurfacing laser treatment is designed to help you look and feel your best.
CoolPeel CO2 fractional resurfacing treatment is delivered by the Smartxide Tetra CO2 laser- the latest in advanced CO2 laser skin resurfacing producing the benefits of a traditional CO2 but without the lengthy downtime and discomfort. It is the elimination of excess heat (traditional CO2) that results in significant downtime reduction. Settings, patterns, and power can be easily adjusted, tailoring it to the skin’s individual condition as well as the lifestyle needs. The high peak short pulse energy delivers a controlled injury to the epidermis and superficial dermis, resulting in gradual improvement in the depth of acne scarring and wrinkles as well as pore size and skin tone and texture. Results can be noticed in as little as 1 week, but the improvement continues for up to 6 months as the collagen and elastin keep on remodeling. This fractional resurfacing device can be successfully used not just on the face, but also the neck, décolletage, and the hands.

Treatment with CoolPeel CO2 can take , depending on the areas being treated ( face, neck, and chest or just face for example), an average of 30 to 45 minutes. Since the level of discomfort is minimal, we do not apply topical anesthetic prior to the treatment but utilize the cool air Zimmer for additional comfort. If deeper and more aggressive resurfacing with the Tetra CO2 is required, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the skin 1 hour prior to the procedure. Immediately after the treatment , we follow with an application of a post-treatment ointment and a sunscreen. At that time, we review the post-treatment instructions and answer any questions patient might have.
Recovery time & side effects
Treatment with CoolPeel CO2 fractional laser can be compared to a mild prickling sensation. At the same time , patients experience a mild tingling to burning sensation – sort of like a mild sunburn. The recovery time is rather mild and short-you can expect sandpaper like, rough texture with minimally noticeable brown microscopic lesions and mild redness lasting, on average, for about 1-3 days. In the event a deeper resurfacing treatment with the Tetra CO2 laser is performed, the aforementioned temporary side effects become more intense , lasting, on average, up to 4-6 days. In order to speed up the recovery and preserve the new skin, we recommend to keep the area most with a non-sensitizing moisturizer and avoid direct sun exposure.
Results can be noticed in as little as 1 week, but the improvement continues for up to 6 months as the collagen and elastin keep on remodeling. CoolPeel CO2 is safe for skin tones Fitzpatrick l-V and can be effectively performed not just on the face, but the neck, décolletage, and the hands. This is a treatment of choice for patients who desire the results from a traditional CO2 laser skin resurfacing but without the downtime and complications associated with it ! Minimally invasive with minimum to no downtime but maximum results! Minimum 3 sessions, spaced 4 weeks apart, recommended for optimal results. Especially known for exceptional smoothing and softening of acne scarring!
For the most desirable outcome and optimal result, a duo treatment of Morpheus8 with the CoolPeel CO2 is strongly suggested.
How Does CoolPeel CO2 Laser Work?
Get an in-depth look at how CoolPeel CO2 laser skin resurfacing near you works.
CoolPeel CO2 fractional laser is a revolutionary advance way of safely and comfortably delivering the results of a traditional CO2 laser . The high peak short pulse energy delivers a fully ablative skin treatment while avoiding the excess heat that causes the damage and downtime of a traditional CO2 laser. As the ablation delivers a controlled injury to the epidermis and the superficial dermis, the skin undergoes a healing process during which new collagen and elastin are formed. You are a good candidate for a CoolPeel CO2 laser resurfacing if you wish to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, superficial acne scarring, and improve skin tone and texture.
Upon arrival, you will meet with our medical aesthetician and a cosmetic physician for a complimentary cosmetic consultation to discuss if you are a good candidate for the CoolPeel CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment as well as what to expect during and immediately post treatment.
The CoolPeel CO2 laser delivers high energy but very short pulse laser beam to the skin, eliminating excess heat and therefore minimizing damage and downtime. Since it is capable of bypassing the excess lingering heat it was named the "cool" laser. It is equipped with precise power, density, and pulse durations which can be easily tailored and optimized to individual skin conditions and patient's expectations. High-peak energy and short pulses deliver controlled injury to the epidermis and the superficial dermis resulting in collagen and elastin stimulation for a younger and youthful look. Especially effective for superficial to deeper acne scarring ( with the Tetra CO2) as well as skin tone and texture, fine to deeper wrinkles, pore reduction, and superficial sun damage.
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. Safe to perform on skin types Fitzpatrick l-lV and not just for the purpose of facial rejuvenation, but the neck, décolletage, and hands. Results can be noticed within a week , but the skin undergoes collagen and elastin regrowth gradually over the duration of 3 sessions and up to 6 months.
