CO2 lasers are being used more and more in medical procedures, and for a good reason! CO2 lasers are a powerful tool that Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, and his team of experts use to help patients achieve multiple aesthetic goals, especially skin resurfacing

One of the newest CO2 laser treatments is CoolPeel, which uses a CO2 laser to cause the superficial layer of the skin to peel or ablate. This treatment is excellent for improving sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, pores, and acne scars without the downtime of a traditional CO2 treatment. In this article, we will show you the effectiveness of CoolPeel through our before and after photos!

What Is CoolPeel?

CoolPeel is one of the latest innovations in CO2 laser technology offered by the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery (VIPS). It is a quick, easy skin treatment with no real downtime—you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment! You will notice improvements after just one treatment; however, Dr. Vinyard and his team of experts recommend 2-3 treatment sessions for optimal results.

CoolPeel requires no special preparation. You can have the treatment done any time of year on most skin types.

What to Expect with CoolPeel

Dr. Vinyard uses the CO2 laser to heat the skin, causing it to peel. The heating process might cause a mild burning sensation during treatment. However, this sensation is normal and will fade away quickly. After the treatment session, you may experience light side effects, such as redness and swelling, which will quickly resolve.

In most cases, patients resume their day-to-day activities immediately after treatment. However, for optimal recovery, we recommend avoiding sun exposure and the use of retinol or glycolic acids for a few weeks after treatment. 

The results of CoolPeel are impressive and long-lasting. You will see noticeable improvements in the appearance of your skin after just one treatment. With three treatments, you will see optimal results. In addition, the effects of CoolPeel can last for years, making it an excellent option for those looking to improve the appearance of their skin and reduce signs of aging.

How Much Does CoolPeel Cost?

The cost of CoolPeel will vary depending on the size and depth of the area being treated. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results, affecting the cost of treatment. In addition, the number of treatments needed will depend on each individual’s skin condition and needs. Therefore, it is essential to consult with Dr. Vinyard and his team of experts before undergoing a CoolPeel treatment to ensure you get the best individualized treatment plan possible and determine if this procedure is right for you!

Is CoolPeel Right for Me?

CoolPeel is a powerful tool to combat aging and reverse age-related changes in the skin. So, if you are looking for a complete skin refresh, CoolPeel may be precisely what you are looking for! CoolPeel is most beneficial for middle-aged adults (in their 40s and 50s) but can be used by people of all ages since its benefits are wider than other options with less downtime. 

If you are considering CoolPeel, we’d love to hear from you and explore your options! During your consultation, we will thoroughly assess your skin, consider your goals, and help you make the best decision for your aesthetic goals!
