CoolPeel® laser is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that uses advanced laser technology to rejuvenate your skin. It is a revolutionary treatment that can help you achieve a more youthful and radiant complexion without the downtime associated with traditional laser resurfacing.
What is CoolPeel® laser?
Unlike traditional laser resurfacing, CoolPeel® laser uses a unique cooling mechanism that protects the skin's surface while delivering the laser energy deep into the dermis. This cooling mechanism ensures the treatment is comfortable and safe for all skin types. CoolPeel® laser effectively treats a range of skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne scars
The treatment is quick and easy, taking only 15-30 minutes. You may experience mild redness and swelling immediately following the treatment, but this typically subsides within a few hours. Overall, CoolPeel® laser is a safe and effective way to achieve a more youthful and radiant complexion without the downtime associated with traditional laser resurfacing.
How does CoolPeel® Laser Work?
CoolPeel® uses a unique fractional technology to improve the appearance of your skin. The laser creates tiny micro-channels in the skin that trigger the body's natural healing process, producing new collagen and elastin fibers. This results in an improvement in the texture, tone, and overall quality of your skin.
During the treatment, the CoolPeel® laser emits short bursts of energy that penetrate the skin's surface. The energy is controlled, allowing the laser to target the deeper layers of the skin without causing damage to the surrounding tissue. The laser's cooling technology also ensures the skin remains comfortable throughout the treatment.
The laser's fractional technology only treats a fraction of the skin's surface area, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This leads to a faster healing time and a reduced risk of side effects compared to traditional laser treatments.
Benefits of CoolPeel® Laser
One of the benefits of the CoolPeel® laser is that it requires minimal downtime. Unlike other laser treatments, which can leave your skin red and swollen for days, CoolPeel® laser only causes a mild sunburn-like sensation that usually subsides within a few hours. You can return to normal activities immediately without taking time off work or avoiding social events.
Another advantage of CoolPeel® laser is that it can be customized to meet your skin concerns. Whether you want to target fine lines around your eyes, wrinkles on your forehead, or age spots on your hands, this treatment can address your unique needs. Plus, it can be combined with other therapies, such as BOTOX or dermal fillers, for even more dramatic results.
Here are Some Other Benefits of CoolPeel® Laser:
- Painless Procedure: CoolPeel® laser is a painless procedure requiring no anesthesia or numbing cream. You may feel slightly warming or tingling during the treatment, but it is not uncomfortable.
- Quick Treatment: The treatment is fast and can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. You can easily fit it into your busy schedule!
- Effective Results: CoolPeel® laser can effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. It can also improve skin texture and tone, giving you a more youthful and radiant complexion.
- Safe and Non-Invasive: It’s a safe and non-invasive procedure that does not damage the surrounding skin. Additionally, CoolPeel® is suitable for all skin types and can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
What to Expect During a CoolPeel® Laser Treatment
When you arrive for your CoolPeel® laser treatment, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to remove dirt or makeup. You may be given protective eyewear to wear during the treatment to shield your eyes from the laser.
During the treatment, a trained technician will use the CoolPeel® laser handpiece to deliver short bursts of energy to your skin. To ensure even coverage, the laser will be moved over the treatment area in a grid-like pattern.
The length of your treatment will depend on the size of the area being treated, but most sessions last between 15 and 30 minutes. After the treatment, a cooling gel may be applied to your skin to soothe discomfort.
Immediately after the treatment, your skin may appear slightly red or swollen, similar to a mild sunburn. This is a normal reaction and should subside within a few hours. You may also notice some peeling or flaking of the skin in the days following the treatment, which is a sign that the damaged skin cells are being shed and replaced with new, healthier cells.
Aftercare for CoolPeel® Laser Treatments
After your CoolPeel® laser treatment, taking good care of your skin is essential to ensure optimal results. Here are some tips to help you care for your skin after the treatment:
- Avoid sun exposure: After the treatment, your skin will be more sensitive to sunlight. So, avoiding sun exposure for at least a week after the treatment is essential. If you must go out, wear broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and a wide-brimmed hat to protect your skin from the sun.
- Use gentle skincare products: Your skin may be sensitive after the treatment, so it is important to avoid using harsh scrubs, exfoliants, and retinoids for at least a week.
- Avoid hot water: Hot water can irritate your skin after the treatment. So, avoiding hot showers, saunas, and hot tubs for at least a week after the treatment is vital.
- Moisturize your skin: It may feel dry after the treatment, so moisturize it regularly to keep it hydrated and healthy. Use a gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type.
- Avoid picking at your skin: It is important to avoid picking at your skin after the treatment. Let the skin heal naturally to avoid scarring and other complications.
Am I a Candidate for CoolPeel® Laser?
CoolPeel® laser is designed to treat mild to moderate signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. You may need more invasive treatment if you have more severe signs of aging, such as deep wrinkles or sagging skin.
Before undergoing any cosmetic treatment, discussing your medical history with your doctor is essential. If you have a history of skin cancer, autoimmune disorders, or other medical conditions, CoolPeel® laser may not be a safe option.
To get the best results from CoolPeel® laser, it is crucial to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This includes avoiding smoking, using sunscreen, and staying hydrated. If you are unwilling to make these lifestyle changes, CoolPeel® laser may not be the right choice.
