About CoolPeel

CoolPeel™ is a way to safely, and comfortably deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment with little to no downtime.  By targeting just the superficial layer of skin tissue, damaged skin is removed revealing younger and healthier looking skin. 

CO2 lasers are the gold standard in treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes as well as tighten skin and balance tone.  Damaged skin tissue is removed, or ablated, stimulating new collagen production and heat energy is delivered to tighten the skin. 

Initial series of 3-5 treatments are commonly recommended for best results. 

Please disclose any history of cold sores - preventative options are available.   It is important to confirm with your care providers whether you have a history of keloid scarring. 

Treatment sensation has been likened to a pins-and-needles sensation.  Discomfort is very mild.

  2. Discontinue vitamin A creams, alpha hydroxyl, and glycolic lotions 1 week prior to treatment and ensure you have no irritation on the skin.
