About CoolPeel

CoolPeel is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation technique that delivers the benefits of traditional CO2 resurfacing without harsh side effects or downtime. The damaged layers of the skin are ablated, thereby encouraging collagen production and replacing the uppermost layers of the skin with smoother, younger, and more even-textured skin. However, most CO2 resurfacing treatments involve downtime because the heat energy damages the surrounding skin.

The Tetra CO2 device also delivers short pulses of highly-controlled CO2 laser energy to damage or ablate the skin’s uppermost layers, thereby revealing the smoother skin underneath. But the Tetra CO2 device performs skin resurfacing without lingering heat, making it safer and more comfortable than traditional CO2 skin resurfacing. As such, CoolPeel is a more comfortable (yet equally effective) version of traditional skin resurfacing.

Ultimate Duo (CoolPeel + RF Microneedling)

SkinScience Medical Aesthetics is proud to offer Ultimate Duo, an innovative skin rejuvenation technique that combines the stellar capabilities of CoolPeel with RF Microneedling. Most medical spas provide the two treatments as standalone procedures. Both treatments use different methods to encourage collagen production and heal superficial skin damage. However, combining the two techniques boosts the results, helping you achieve smoother, tighter, and more youthful skin faster.

We have already discussed CoolPeel, so let’s explore RF microneedling in greater detail. RF microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique wherein micro-punctures are made on your skin’s surface while delivering radiofrequency waves into the underlying dermal layers. The micro-injuries activate skin cell regeneration, while radiofrequency energy boosts collagen production. When combined with CO2 skin resurfacing, the Ultimate Duo can provide immediate and long-term improvements with no social downtime.


Am I a suitable candidate for CoolPeel?

You’re a suitable candidate for CoolPeel if you have fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, sun spots, pigmentation problems, or other textural irregularities. This laser treatment will improve your overall skin quality, making you look healthier and more radiant.

What happens during the CoolPeel treatment?

During the CoolPeel treatment, your cosmetic provider will cleanse your facial skin and apply a topical numbing cream to ensure comfort. There’s no need for local anesthesia. The Tetra CO2 device will be adjusted according to your specific skin concerns and quality, and it will be moved over the treatment areas. The entire process concludes within 5 to 15 minutes.

What are the side effects of CoolPeel?

Your skin will look a little red, similar to a mild sunburn, for a day or two, but you can resume your daily activities immediately. Your skin may also feel dry and scaly, so you should moisturize it regularly, using the recommended products.

When will I see the CoolPeel results?

You’ll notice the CoolPeel results in a few days, with gradual improvements over several weeks and months. The final results are usually evident in 3 to 4 months.
