CoolPeel

Reveal healthier, younger-looking skin.

What is CoolPeel?

CoolPeel is a brand new way to comfortably achieve the results of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment. It targets the superficial layer of skin tissue. Damaged skin is removed to reveal younger and healthier looking skin.

Why is CoolPeel different?

CO2 lasers are perfect for treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes. They also tighten skin and balance tone. Damaged skin tissue is removed, stimulating new collagen production. Heat energy is delivered, tightening the skin.

Advances have been made to improve the side effects of CO2 treatments, but ONLY the CoolPeel can deliver treatment without the downtime. There is also a low risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation or induced infection.

How does CoolPeel work?

The CoolPeel treatment can only be done using a SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser.

Only Tetra can control its output to deliver high energy in extremely short-pulses. This delivers impressive skin resurfacing results without the lingering heat that would often damage surrounding skin. The lack of unnecessary heat is why we call it cool — get it?

A full-face CoolPeel laser peel takes only five to 15 minutes.

Is anesthesia required?

While there is no need for anesthesia or localized numbing, the team at DeSilva Dermatology may use a numbing cream for additional comfort.

What is the recovery time?

One of the main benefits of a CoolPeel, is that there is far less downtime. You may expect to be a little red, as if you have been sunburned for a day or two, but nothing should prevent you from going back to your normal daily activities. Your skin may feel dry and scaly as it heals, so it is vital to stay moisturized..
