CO2 lasers are the gold standard in treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes. These lasers do wonders in tightening skin and balancing skin tone, minimizing pores, and improving sun damaged skin. Once the laser goes to work, damaged skin tissue is removed. This process, called ablation, primes the skin to produce new collagen. The addition of the heat adds a boost by providing a way for the skin to tighten.
CoolPeel treatments are separated 4-6 weeks apart in a series of 3. For advanced CO2 peels, this is a one time treatment that can be done every 3-5 years if needed.
For the Tetra CoolPeel treatment, makeup can be applied as soon as 24 hours after once aftercare products and sunscreen are applied. For more advanced resurfacing treatments, makeup should not be worn for approximately 1 week.
