We are thrilled to offer two impressive laser options: the Tetra CoolPeel® and CO2 treatments. The CoolPeel® is an innovative way to safely and comfortably deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment. By targeting only the superficial layer of skin tissue, damaged skin is removed to reveal younger and healthier-looking skin with a series of treatments.
The CO2 laser treatment is an excellent choice to deliver more dramatic results. The CO2 laser allows for a high level of precision, control, and accuracy. It can drastically smooth scars, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections one layer of skin at a time. The benefit of the CO2 laser treatment is impressive, long-lasting results that can be achieved in only one to three treatments.

About CoolPeel® and CO2 Laser Treatments
The CO2 laser has long been the gold standard for treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes, as well as for tightening skin and balancing tone. Damaged skin tissue is removed, or ablated, stimulating new collagen production as heat energy is delivered to tighten the skin. Depending on the depth of treatment, CO2 treatments can be accompanied by considerable downtime while damaged skin heals. Many advances have been made to improve the side effects of CO2 treatments, but only the CoolPeel® can deliver a fractional treatment with little to no downtime. Compared to traditional CO2 laser treatments, the risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation, or infection is minimal.

You are a good candidate for CoolPeel® laser treatments if you are looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and sun damage, minimize pores, and improve skin texture. Your skin will look healthier and younger.
A full-face CoolPeel® laser treatment takes an average of 15-20 minutes.
While there is no need for anesthesia or localized numbing, your provider will use a high quality numbing cream for additional comfort.
After your CoolPeel® is that there is minimal downtime. You should expect to be a little red, as if you have a sunburn, for a day or two, but nothing should prevent you from returning to your normal daily activities. Your skin may feel dry and scaly as it heals for up to a week, so it is important to keep the skin hydrated.
The Tetra CO2 removes the top layers of damaged skin tissue and stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin underneath.

Following the treatment, new collagen is formed and elastin is tightened for long-lasting benefits.
The Tetra is amongst the newest and most advanced CO2 technologies available as it features more operating settings so providers can better customize the intensity, depth, and shape of the laser energy. This unmatched versatility means treatments are even and more precise, optimizing results and minimizing side effects and unnecessary downtime.
With Tetra, your provider can customize your treatment to your skin’s exact needs. The Tetra can deliver either an intense treatment to reverse deeper lines and wrinkles, with a week or two of social downtime, or a lighter CoolPeel laser peel treatment to refresh the skin with little downtime.
Results and downtime depend on your individual treatment. You should talk to your physician to understand when you will see your desired outcomes and how much downtime you should expect.
After a CO2 laser treatment, it usually takes about 1-2 weeks for your skin to heal, and it will be very sensitive during this time. Follow the guidelines to help your skin heal and prevent infection. Your skin may feel dry and scaly as it heals for up to a week, so it is important to keep the skin hydrated.
