Dr. Smith stays at the forefront of new treatments and procedures in the aesthetic world. One of the newest is called CoolPeel from Cartessa Aesthetics. We’re excited to offer CoolPeel for our patients from across coastal South Carolina.
What is a CoolPeel?
CoolPeel is a brand-new option for delivering the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing, without the downtime. CoolPeel targets the superficial layer of skin tissue.
How does CoolPeel work?
CoolPeel treatments are performed with the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser. The Tetra is the latest, most advanced CO2 laser from DEKA, a global leader in aesthetic technology. Only Tetra can control its output to deliver high energy in extremely short pulses to deliver impressive superficial, skin resurfacing results without the lingering heat that can damage the surrounding skin. This is where CoolPeel gets its name, thanks to the laser’s lack of unnecessary heat.
How is CoolPeel different?
COS laser resurfacing has been the preferred treatment for treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scarring, and other blemishes while improving skin tone and texture and providing skin tightening. The CO2 laser ablates the outer damaged skin tissue, stimulating new skin cell production and triggering the wound-healing response where the body creates new amounts of collagen to improve and tighten the skin. The problem with CO2 laser resurfacing has been the downtime and recovery afterwards.
CoolPeel changes that. The new technology of the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser delivers fractional ablative results without the downtime. There is also reduced risk of hyperpigmentation, a problem with traditional CO2 laser skin resurfacing.
Who is a good candidate for a CoolPeel treatment?
Thanks to the lack of recovery or downtime with CoolPeel, just about anyone looking to improve their skin is a great candidate for these new treatments at Smith Plastic Surgery. Specifically, if you’re looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and sun damaged skin, minimize large pores, and improve overall skin tone, this is a good treatment. Your skin will become more vibrant and refreshed with improved firmness.
Is there recovery after a CoolPeel?
Patients have some redness, as if they have a mild sunburn. This lasts for a day or two but is not enough to keep you from going right back to work or your other normal activities.
