CoolPeel Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment

Firm, clear skin are defining qualities of beautiful skin. These qualities express youthfulness, vitality and energy. However, maintaining firm and clear skin is no easy task to do. As you age, your skin's quality diminishes for a variety of reasons. Your natural production of collagen, a protein that maintains skin firmness, declines over time. Your pores can become clogged with dust and pollutants, resulting in acne and eventually acne scars. The sun has a damaging effect. 

Yes, maintaining firm and clear skin is difficult to do - unless you have a little help. Aesthetic technologies have come a long way and can relieve the skin of noticeable age signs, including lines, wrinkles and sunspots. CoolPeel, the latest innovation in the world of cosmetic treatments, does just that. 

Offered at The Anti-Aging Clinic of Northwest Florida, CoolPeel is an exceptional treatment that can restore your complexion into a youthful one. Schedule a CoolPeel consultation and learn more about what it can do for you by contacting us today at 850-238-8563 or visit our contact page.

What Is CoolPeel and How Does It Work?

CoolPeel is a laser skin resurfacing treatment that delivers customizable pulses of energy to the skin to trigger the body's natural healing response to alleviate signs of age. The pulses of energy released by the Tetra CO2 laser heats water molecules in the deep layers of skin, causing collagen and elastin production to increase. CoolPeel is a safe and effective treatment that allows for controlled injury, meaning there will not be thermal damage to the treatment site's surrounding tissue. 

CoolPeel is a particularly unique laser skin resurfacing treatment because it utilizes a 'spray' pattern that makes the treatment quicker than other laser options. The customizability of the laser pulse means it can be tailored to a patient's specific concerns. Small areas, such as the eyes, can successfully be treated with CoolPeel.

Who Can Benefit From CoolPeel?

A CoolPeel treatment is an excellent way to give your skin a fresh start by giving it a more youthful image. Cosmetic concerns that CoolPeel is ideal for includes:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Sunspots and age spots
  • Acne scars

CoolPeel is a safe treatment for men and women. However, the treatment is not recommended for patients with a darker skin tone. CoolPeel can cause pigmentation issues if performed on darker skin. Your cosmetic concerns and skin will be reviewed during an initial consultation to determine if CoolPeel is an appropriate treatment. You should be in relatively good health if you are considering treatment, and you should not have an active skin infection or be experiencing inflammation.

The CoolPeel Treatment

Your CoolPeel treatment begins with the application of a topical anesthetic, which will be left on the treatment site for approximately 30 minutes to one hour. The topical anesthetic will help mitigate any discomfort or pain. Your treatment site will also be cleaned and sanitized. Once your skin is prepped, your provider will apply the Tetra CO2 laser to the surface of your skin, which will cause the deep layers of your skin to heat. The device is moved consistently across the skin, so your results are consistent. The laser's customizability will also allow it to be adjusted so it accommodates your specific cosmetic concerns.

When the treatment is complete, a cooling agent may be applied to help further reduce the presence of pain. A treatment can take as little as 10 minutes, depending on the number of areas treated. However, because the topical anesthetic will be utilized, your treatment will take longer than 10 minutes.

CoolPeel Results and Recovery

Your treated area will be red for a couple of days post-treatment. Common side effects include dry and scaly skin, so keeping hydrated is important. You will be able to return to daily activities immediately after treatment, making CoolPeel a particularly unique and preferential laser skin resurfacing treatment because most other treatments require up to one week for healing. Because your skin will be sensitive after treatment, you should avoid direct sunlight exposure and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen of 30 SPF.

As time goes on, your results will continue to improve because the treatment stimulated your natural production of collagen and elastin. Your skin may appear red and dry immediately after your treatment, but it will gradually appear brighter and softer. Results will continue to improve over three to six months as your skin's deep layers continue to produce collagen and elastin. Your results can potentially last for many years so long as you maintain a healthy skin care regimen.

Regain a Youthful Glow With CoolPeel

Your skin's quality will naturally diminish as you age, which can make you appear dull and worn-out. However, even though this diminishment in quality is inevitable, it doesn't mean there aren't technologically advanced treatments that can help resolve the issue, give you a more youthful glow. CoolPeel is a unique laser skin resurfacing treatment that can relieve your skin of numerous signs of age, including wrinkles, lines and sunspots. The treatment is safe, effective and can be customized to your unique cosmetic concerns.
