Meet with us and discover a clinic where we focus on creating natural-looking results in every procedure.
As a focal point for communication and the expression of emotions, the face projects our core essence and personality. With the aging process, the formation of lines, wrinkles, and creases can leave us feeling self-conscious. While a daily skincare regimen can help combat these imperfections in the short term, the complexion may require a cosmetic intervention in order to maintain its beautiful, elegant appearance over time. Dr. Merriman and her team are excited to offer CoolPeel laser treatment as part of their ongoing commitment to top-tier, cutting-edge skincare in a state-of-the-art practice setting.
What is CoolPeel?
CoolPeel provides treatment with the groundbreaking SmartXide Tetra CO2 Laser, which can address a wide range of aesthetic concerns with minimal downtime. Using the innovative H-pulsed laser technology that delivers age-defying energy in short bursts, CoolPeel achieves the powerful results of ablative laser therapy without thermal damage to healthy skin cells.
Which laser is used to perform CoolPeel?
CoolPeel is performed using the cutting-edge SmartXide Tetra CO2 by the internationally respected manufacturer DEKA. The short pulses of CO2 fractional laser energy provide practitioners with the means of achieving dramatic anti-aging results without sacrificing comfort. The SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser is so versatile that it can be used to treat sensitive areas of the face, such as around the eyes, nose, and lips. The laser’s output can be customized through precise controls within the handheld applicator, ensuring an even, uniform distribution of energy.
What can I expect from my session?
Anesthesia is not required for CoolPeel treatment. During your session, the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser emits controlled energy pulses to target areas of the skin that require rejuvenation. The procedure can be carefully customized to each patient’s unique comfort levels and skin type. The laser energy removes the damaged outer layers without causing harm to the surface. The entire process takes under 15 minutes, and there is minimal downtime afterward.
What can I expect after my treatment?
For the majority of CoolPeel patients, any redness or discomfort caused by the treatment clears up within 24 hours. Mineral-based makeup can be worn the next morning to conceal any lingering discoloration, and normal activities can be taken up immediately. Using a moisturizer daily can help to combat drier-than-usual skin after CoolPeel treatment.
What kind of results will I see?
Within 1-2 weeks after CoolPeel laser therapy, you’ll begin to notice softer, more radiant skin and a more youthful look overall. Your outcome will continue to evolve and improve for up to 3 months. Some patients can benefit from a series of CoolPeel sessions, and with no downtime, it’s always easy to get right back to work, school, or leisure activities.
