On the blog today I have invited one of the amazing members of our Racquel Aesthetics team, Emily Altman, as a guest writer. Emily works as a laser specialist and she’s here to share everything you need to know about the latest aesthetic treatment we are now offering at Racquel Aesthetics – CoolPeel Co2!

Are You Ready to CoolPeel CO2?

Why This Laser Treatment is The New Holy Grail Aesthetic Treatment

I am excited to be back on the blog to talk about our newest laser at Racquel Aesthetics! Patients are raving about their results, so let’s not keep this laser a secret anymore! Here is everything you need to know about CoolPeel CO2.

CO2 lasers have been widely known as the gold-standard of the aesthetics industry. They iron out fine lines and wrinkles, help tremendously with texture and acne scarring, and aid in skin tightening. Unfortunately, they also have a bit of a reputation for leaving patients with considerable downtime and looking rather frightening as they heal. I am happy to report that those days are over! Enter CoolPeel Laser technology!

CoolPeel laser is a brand new way to safely and comfortably deliver the benefits of traditional CO resurfacing without the associated downtime! This fractionated ablative laser targets the superficial layer of skin so that only the damaged skin is removed, leaving behind healthier and younger looking skin. 

Because this laser does not have the lingering heat that would damage the surrounding skin like a traditional CO2, this is how it is able to give the patient an immediate aesthetic effect with minimal downtime. This is also where the laser gets its name. Get it, CoolPeel? 😀

Candidates for CoolPeel are those that are looking to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tighten the skin, help with pigmentation, texture, acne scarring and general unevenness of complexion. CoolPeel Laser is also safe for all skin types, so we can safely treat all patients!  

By far the biggest benefit of CoolPeel is the minimal downtime. Patients should expect to be a little red, like a sunburn, for the first 24-48 hours. The skin will feel very dry, tight and sandpapery for about 5 days. As the new skin heals, it is important to keep the skin hydrated. Patients will be able to return to their normal skincare routine in one week post-treatment. It is important to note that patients should not have a tan, real or spray two weeks prior to treatment! 

At Raquel Aesthetics, we love pairing CoolPeel with a BBL treatment beforehand to really target sun damage, hyperpigmentation and photoaging. Stacking treatments not only maximizes your time in the office, but leaves patients with no more downtime than they would if they separated their treatments. This is also the best way to give our patients the most optimal results! 

With every laser treatment we offer, we recommend a series of 3 treatments spaced one month apart for maximum results. Especially if the patient is looking for more full correction on particular areas of concern that have more fine lines and wrinkles.
