CO2 lasers have long represented the standard of excellence in dealing with natural aging signs, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots by tightening and improving the skin tone. However, patients have often been deterred from the benefits of traditional CO2 treatments by their main disadvantage: necessary downtime. Instead of enjoying their skin rejuvenation results right away, patients would have to deal with bandages and side effects such as swelling, not to mention the risk of injuries and scarring from the laser’s heat.

However, these concerns are a thing of the past now. Did you know that you can enjoy all the benefits from CO2 laser treatments with virtually no downtime and no risk of injury? A new revolutionary treatment starts to gain ground on the skin rejuvenation scene, whose precision and control make it the perfect candidate for superior results without unwanted side effects or long days of rest at home – introducing CoolPeel™. Today, we’re going to explore this exciting treatment together and learn why CoolPeel™ is so cool!  

What is CoolPeel™?

CoolPeel™ is an advanced skin rejuvenation treatment that harnesses the benefits of CO2 laser technology to remove the superficial skin, revealing a smoother and healthier skin layer beneath the surface. Here at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery, CoolPeel™ is our go-to treatment against natural aging signs, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Furthermore, CoolPeel™ delivers smoother, improved skin texture by dealing with clogged pores and sun damage.

How does CoolPeel™ work?

This peculiar treatment can only be performed using the SmartXide-DOT® Tetra CO2 laser by DEKA, a leader in plastic surgery technology. The Tetra device delivers laser energy in extremely short waves with its unique pulse control, targeting only specific areas. Because of these short waves, the heat energy does not linger into the skin, nor does it dissipate towards other facial areas. By keeping the treated areas safe from unnecessary heat energy, CoolPeel™ has righteously earned its name.

How Long Does the CoolPeel™ Treatment Last?

Unlike traditional CO2 treatments, which can take up to an hour, CoolPeel™ is more generous with patients who can only undergo this skin rejuvenation treatment during a quick break from work. After just fifteen minutes, patients can leave our office and return to their day-to-day activities!

Are you worried that anesthesia might mess up your schedule? We have good news – CoolPeel™ does not require any anesthesia or localized numbing. However, at our office, Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, uses a numbing cream to make the CoolPeel™ as pleasant and carefree as possible.

Is the CoolPeel™ Treatment Considered Safe?

The minimal risks associated with the FDA-approved CoolPeel™ put it at the top of the safest skin rejuvenation treatments. Compared to traditional CO2 treatments, the risk of pigmentation following a CoolPeel™ procedure is drastically reduced. As a side effect, patients will only experience minor redness, similar to a mild sunburn, for a few hours following the procedure, which we can efficiently address with a skin lotion.

When Will I See My CoolPeel™ Results?

Aside from its already-mentioned benefits, CoolPeel™ stimulates the production of fresh collagen, the protein responsible for skin strength and elasticity. Though you will notice initial results when you leave our office, dramatic improvements will be evident after one week. As collagen production is stimulated, the outermost layers of damaged cells will make way for younger, healthy cells. Furthermore, sun damage, age spots, pigmentation, and texture issues will all improve after just one week, with full results after three to six months.

The quality of your results depends on the number of CoolPeel™ treatments. If you’re looking to experience the full CoolPeel™ experience, we recommend that you space your treatment over a series of three procedures.

How Long Will the CoolPeel™ Results Last?

Thanks to the high energy delivered by the Tetra device, your CoolPeel™ results can last for many years to come. However, due to the natural aging process, your skin will continue to age. For that reason, leading a healthy lifestyle and following a constant skin care regimen is your best bet if you’re looking for long-lasting results.

Why is CoolPeel™ Superior to Other CO2 Laser Treatments?

Are you still undecided between traditional CO2 laser treatments and CoolPeel™? Which of the two approaches is superior? The answer lies in the following two factors:

  • Absence of downtime: in the case of traditional CO2 laser treatments, patients require up to ten days as downtime for the swelling and other side effects, such as peeling, dry skin, superficial crusting, oozing, and pinpoint bleeding, to recede. In the case of CoolPeel™, the downtime is practically nonexistent, as you will only experience mild redness for a few hours after the procedure.
  • Safety standards: CoolPeel™’s superior safety standards have surpassed traditional CO2 laser treatments – the risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation, or induced infection is significantly reduced.
