Frozen Beauty. The Magic of Cool Peel Laser
Aging is a natural process that happens to everyone. Although the consequences of aging are inevitable, they are not always pleasant and desirable. This includes age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles that affect the skin. This often worries most aging people because the skin is the exposed part of the body and any signs of aging are immediately noticeable. Many often seek out ways to eliminate these skin defects or delay their appearance.
Over the years, several methods have been introduced for this purpose, and while some have not proven to be particularly effective, others have produced outstanding results. The use of CO2 Cool Peel lasers for skin resurfacing has been adopted by many dermatologists and skin care professionals worldwide, because it has proven to be an excellent skin treatment option, especially for aging adults.
Cool Peel is one of the latest innovations in CO2 laser skin resurfacing. It is a brand new way to safely, and comfortably deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment. By targeting just the superficial layer of skin tissue, damaged skin is gently removed, revealing younger and healthier-looking skin. This skin rejuvenation treatment can work wonders for anyone who wants to minimize the signs of skin damage and aging. As the treatment is delivered, the old and damaged skin is removed and collagen production is stimulated, leaving you with more youthful-looking skin.
What is a Cool Peel Laser?
Cool Peel is an advanced, cutting-edge laser treatment that revitalizes the skin without the need for downtime. This treatment is a non-invasive, non-surgical office procedure that targets the superficial layer of skin. It is used to reveal smoother, healthier, younger-looking skin with a more even tone and texture by reducing sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, rosacea scars, large pores, and blemishes.
The Tetra CO2 laser is used to apply Cool Peel. With its highly regulated delivery of high energy in brief pulses, this laser therapy resurfaces the skin without causing damage.

How does Cool Peel laser work?
Cool Peel laser is a non-ablative treatment that creates tiny openings in the skin; these openings promote your body’s natural healing response, stimulating collagen growth and restoring a smooth, fresh surface. Consequently, each injury has healthy tissue bridges left surrounding it to promote faster recovery. Additionally, improved spray distribution of those micro-columns in the recovery phase results in an even, more natural-looking result. The laser used for Cool Peel works by delivering pulses of light without the intense heat that is typically associated with CO2 lasers and requires little downtime.
The preparation and procedure
The skin is thoroughly cleansed of all makeup and sunscreen. The treatment is tolerable and so generally do not use anesthetic cream.
If the patient has any history of cold sores antiviral medication should be started prior to the treatment.
The Cool Peel laser procedure takes approximately 30 minutes. A cold air blower helps with any discomfort. A thick post-laser lotion is applied to the treated area post-procedure and ice can be used to cool the skin and reduce potential swelling.
The expectations after a Cool Peel treatment
While you’ll be able to resume your normal daily activities immediately after a Cool Peel laser treatment, your skin may look inflamed, dry, and flaky for a few days.
Keep your skin-care routine simple throughout the recovery process—think of a gentle cleanser and hydrating moisturizer. Ask your provider what they’d recommend.
You should protect your delicate and healing skin by avoiding direct sunlight and by using broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30.
How many Cool Peel treatments will you need?
The number of procedures depends on the purpose of doing it. Usually, 1-4 procedures are performed for the final result. If you’re looking to just freshen up the skin, one treatment will do the job! If you’re looking to correct any textural issues or acne scarring, a series of treatments will usually yield the best results. Cool Peel laser treatment can be applied to any surface of the body, but the face, neck, and decolletage are the most common areas.
Is Cool Peel painful?
Neither sedation nor injectable anesthetic are necessary for this therapy. Since non-ablative lasers don’t seriously damage the skin, they are usually well tolerated. On the other hand, an ablative laser removes the topmost layer of the skin, which can cause pain and downtime. Cool Peel does not directly remove any skin cells, so there is no pain or extended downtime associated with the treatment.
How long do the results last?
Over the next 3-6 months, you will continue to see progressive improvement from Cool Peel as the deeper layers of your skin continue to heal. Depending on your age, skin type, and skin condition, the results of Cool Peel can last for years.
The Cool Peel C02 laser treatment is widely regarded by experts as the gold standard for skin resurfacing. This is due to the fact that it has successfully treated a number of skin problems when used as the main treatment method.
