Tell me about the Tetra CO2 Laser!
Do you feel as if you need to hit the refresh button on your skin? Does dull, dry, wrinkled, and spotted define the skin you see in the mirror each day? Are you feeling as though you are unhappy about looking older but just not quite ready to do anything dramatic yet? Do you want to age gracefully by using minor treatments that help you stay looking fresh and revitalized?
The Tetra CO2 Laser offers fully customizable skin resurfacing treatments that eliminate signs of aging such as wrinkles, sunspots, uneven texture and age spots for dramatically smoother, brighter, younger-looking skin. It will address fine lines to deep wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and redness, age spots, acne scars, sun damage, dullness/texture, dark under-eye circles, and lax skin. With the Tetra CO2 laser, new collagen is formed, and elastin is tightened for long-lasting results. The Tetra can deliver either an intense treatment to reverse deeper lines and wrinkles with a week or two of social downtime or a lighter CoolPeel laser peel treatment to refresh the skin with minimal downtime. A consultation with Dr. Antimarino must be done prior to treatment to determine the correct level of usage with the Tetra laser to produce the desired aesthetic result.
The Tetra CO2 is manufactured by DEKA, Europe’s top aesthetic laser manufacturer. It is designed to provide the user with more control over the coverage, density and pulse duration than any other CO2 device. The Tetra CO2 is the only technology that can perform a CoolPeel, the advanced skin treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines, sun damage, and pores as well as improve skin texture with a few hours of downtime.
The CoolPeel uses the high-peak-power, short pulse that delivers a fully ablative treatment without thermal damage to the surrounding tissue. This means that the downtime is controlled and minimized while producing impressive superficial skin resurfacing results. You are a good candidate for a CoolPeel laser treatment if you are looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and sun damage, minimize pores and improve skin texture.
Skin will look healthier and younger. There is no need for anesthesia or localized numbing during the treatment although your provider may wish to include the use of a numbing cream for additional comfort. There is minimal downtime with a CoolPeel treatment. You should expect to be a little red, as if you have a sunburn, for a day or two but nothing will prevent you from returning to your normal activities. After the treatment, your skin may feel dry and scaly for the first week as it heals. It is important to stay hydrated and keep the skin moisturized.
