The Tetra CoolPeel CO2 Laser is a type of “fractional resurfacing” laser which removes minuscule columns of skin while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This process uses heat energy and triggers collagen production, which can dramatically improve skin texture, reduce fine lines, and clear up the skin’s complexion.
As one of the most advanced CO2 lasers available, its highly variable power, density, and pulse duration allow it to treat all manner of skin issues precisely and efficiently. Whether you require delicate touch-ups or serious resurfacing, this dynamic, non-surgical option can be customized to your needs with minimal time needed for recovery.

Here are our answers to your most frequently asked questions.
What Makes CoolPeel Different?
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 while heat energy is delivered to tighten the skin. It sounds great, but CO2 treatments are often accompanied by considerable downtime and risk while damaged skin heals. Many advances have been made to improve the side effects of CO2 treatments but ONLY the CoolPeel can deliver a fractional ablative treatment without the downtime. There is minimal risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation or induced infection.
How Does The CoolPeel Work?
A CoolPeel laser treatment can only be done using the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser. The Tetra is the latest, most advanced CO2 laser from DEKA, a global leader in aesthetic technology. Only Tetra can control its output to deliver high energy in extremely short-pulses to deliver impressive superficial skin resurfacing results without the lingering heat that would traditionally damage the surrounding skin. The lack of unnecessary heat is why we call it cool – get it? – and how you get an immediate aesthetic effect with minimal downtime.
Who Is A Candidate For CoolPeel?
You are a good candidate for a CoolPeel laser treatment if you are looking to reduces the appearance of fine lines and sun damage, minimize pores, and improve skin texture. Your skin will look healthier and younger.
How Long Does A CoolPeel Take?
A full-face CoolPeel laser peel can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes.
Is Anesthesia Or Numbing Required?
While there is no need for anesthesia or localized numbing, your provider may use a numbing cream for additional comfort.
What Is My Recovery Time?
One of the main benefits of a CoolPeel is that there is minimal downtime. You should expect to be a little red, as if you have a sunburn, for a day or two, but nothing should prevent you from returning to your normal daily activities. Your skin may feel dry and scaly as it heals so it is important to keep the skin hydrated.
When Can I Return To My Skincare Routine?
After your CoolPeel treatment, it is important to keep your skin hydrated and there may be certain products you should avoid. Talk to your provider about the best post-treatment care and when you can return to your daily skincare regimen.
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. It’s a type of light therapy used to treat wrinkles, spots, and unwanted hair.
You can use IPL to minimize or remove:
- age spots
- sun damage
- varicose veins
- broken blood vessels on your face
- hair on your face, neck, back, chest, legs, underarms, or bikini line
What Are IPL Treatments?
Intense Pulsed Light therapy, commonly known as IPL, is used to perform skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes. During the treatment, a handheld device is passed across the skin’s surface delivering pulses of broad-spectrum light to the deep layers of the skin.
You can think of it as a powerful blinking flashlight sending out scattered wavelengths of light, making an IPL a skin treatment that is very targeted for specific problem areas or skin concerns. This treatment is sometimes referred to as a “photofacial.”
What Do IPL Procedures Do For Your Skin?
An IPL photofacial treatment uses the power of broadband light to improve the appearance of dark spots, sunspots from sun exposure, rosacea, age spots, and skin texture. The treatment can also be used for hair removal, photo rejuvenation, and to alleviate dermatologic conditions like acne. It is a popular treatment because it's effective, affordable, and non-invasive. Not all skin types may be a candidate for IPL, so you should consult with one of our providers prior to booking your first session.
What Does The IPL Treatment Look and Feel Like?
IPL is usually a series of treatments (typically 3 to 6) depending on the needs of the patient.
How To Get The Best Results From An IPL Treatment
Make the most of your IPL treatment by modifying your topical skincare routine before and after the procedure. We recommend discontinuing retinol/retinoid use for several days prior to procedure and several days after.
Skin Redness / Rosacea
Laser treatments can control and reduce the signs and symptoms
Rosacea usually causes a persistent redness in the central part of the face. Small blood vessels on the nose and cheeks often swell and become visible.
Swollen Red Bumps
Many people who have rosacea also develop pimples on their face that resemble acne. These bumps sometimes contain pus. Your skin may feel hot and tender.
The true cause of rosacea is unknown, but it is thought to be a result of combining certain hereditary and environmental factors. Rosacea is not caused by poor hygiene.
A number of factors can trigger or aggravate rosacea by increasing blood flow to the surface of your skin. Some of these factors include:
- Hot drinks and spicy foods
- Temperature extremes
- Sunlight or wind
- Drugs that dilate blood vessels, including some blood pressure medications
