Q&A: Is our CoolPeel+ treatment right for you?
Posted August 25, 2021
What can be used to address crepey skin to the upper chest, sun damage to the face and chest, improve skin texture, and correct precancerous lesions?
The CoolPeel+ is a new way to deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment safely and comfortably. The superficial layer of skin tissue is targeted, and damaged skin is removed to reveal younger and healthier-looking skin. CO2 lasers are the gold standard for the treatment of wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, skin tightening, and to balance tone. New collagen production is stimulated as heat energy is delivered and damaged skin tissue is removed. CoolPeel+ can be tailored to fit the needs of each individual patient. CoolPeel+ can deliver a fully ablative treatment without the typical downtime associated with these treatments.
Who is a candidate for a CoolPeel+?
If you are looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and sun damage, improve your skin texture and tone, and treat the crepy skin on the upper chest, you may want to investigate further. Skin will look healthier and younger.
How long does it take?
A full face and decollate can take approximately 30-45 minutes as numbing cream is applied prior to treatment to increase patient comfort.
What is my recovery time?
There is minimal downtime associated with the CoolPeel+. You should expect to be red as if you have a sunburn, for the first few days but nothing should prevent you from returning to your normal daily activities. Your skin will feel dry and scaly as it heals so it is important to keep the skin hydrated. If your procedure is performed deeper for maximum results, your downtime may be longer.
A complimentary cosmetic consultation with Dr. Antimarino will provide you with a treatment plan to meet your needs based on your physical exam and desired results.
