What is CoolPeel?

This innovative treatment safely and comfortably delivers all of the benefits of traditional CO2 laser resurfacing without the discomfort and downtime traditionally associated with them. CoolPeel is a new gold standard in wrinkle, age spot and acne scar reduction and treatment and its innovative precision and control give you all the skin resurfacing benefits without any of the risks and minimal downtime. 

The CoolPeel® laser treatment is performed with the advanced SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser. Its output is controlled, delivering high energy in short pulses to achieve skin resurfacing results without lingering heat that damages the surrounding skin and requires downtime. This is why the treatment is called “cool” peel.

The CoolPeel Difference

CoolPeel uses fractional CO2 laser to safely remove a very fine top-layer of skin, while producing controlled micro-wounds that stimulate the production of elastin and collagen—two natural growth factors your skin needs for extended health and youthfulness.  CoolPeel is a non-invasive facial treatment that leads to a vastly improved appearance of your skin, helping to refine, restore and brighten the complexion of dull or lackluster skin. Unlike other harsh peels, CoolPeel does this while not damaging or compromising the natural functions and beauty of the skin.  CoolPeel can be done on a large variety of skin types in order to correct many of the most common skin conditions including acne, hyperpigmentation, sun-damage, rosacea, and inflammation.

How CoolPeel Works

Yes, it’s called Cool for a very good reason. CoolPeel can only be done using one particular laser, and it’s the latest and most advanced CO2 laser on the market (the SmartXide Tetra from global aesthetic technology leader, DEKA.) This is the only CO2 laser that can control its output well enough to deliver the high amount of energy in very short pulses — a combination that makes impressive superficial skin resurfacing possible without the lingering heat that would otherwise damage your skin. The absence of unnecessary heat is why it’s called Cool, and is how you get the immediate aesthetic effect with minimal downtime.

What is a CoolPeel treatment like?

We will start with a numbing cream for comfort. We will pass the laser over the skin, where it treats the skin at a rapid rate. This rapid application prevents damage to other surrounding areas, significantly decreasing downtime while achieving outstanding results. 

Which Areas Can Be Treated with CoolPeel?

CoolPeel can be safely applied to the hands, face, and neck, effectively addressing a wide range of skin concerns, including the following:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Acne scars

Who is a good candidate for a coolpeel?

If you are hoping to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage and hyperpigmentation and minimize your pores while improving your skin tone and skin texture, you’re a good candidate for a CoolPeel laser treatment.

During your CoolPeel treatment, you’ll feel warmth and a mild, easily bearable tenderness. To ensure your treatment is comfortable, we will provide a numbing cream ahead of time.

How many CoolPeel treatments do I need?

Every person is unique and has their own skin concerns and their own aesthetic goals for their skin. In general, we recommend 3-6 laser treatments performed 4-6 weeks apart. After each treatment session, you will notice marked improvements in your complexion and the radiance of your skin.

What is recovery like?

CoolPeel treatments require little to no downtime. Expect mild redness for 24 to 48 hours, similar to a natural sunburn. This redness is typically uniform enough to look natural and doesn’t prevent people from comfortably returning immediately to their personal and professional activities. Your skin will also feel dry, so remaining hydrated is important.

When will I start to see results?

Unlike other laser resurfacing treatments, CoolPeel will not cause heavy scabbing or peeling. For a day or two, your skin will be red, as if you have a sunburn. As your skin heals, it will feel dry and scaly. It’s important to keep it hydrated during this time.

You will notice a new glow and vitality in your skin after 3-4 days. Your pores appear smaller, winkles fade, and blemishes are reduced, leaving your skin glowing and refreshed. 

What is the Difference Between CoolPeel and CO2 Tetra Fractional Laser?

Both CoolPeel and Tetra CO2 treatments are performed using the same advanced, versatile laser. However, the treatments are performed differently.


CoolPeel is modulated to address the uppermost layers of the skin, targeting the surface. The laser addresses intermittent parts of the skin’s surface, leaving areas of untreated skin in between. The laser treatment is performed with very short pulses of light. This results in the reduction of heat buildup in the skin, which means there is less skin damage. Compared with the recovery period after traditional CO2 resurfacing, CoolPeel requires minimal downtime.

Tetra CO2 Laser Resurfacing 

Tetra CO2 laser is an advanced, highly effective skin resurfacing procedure that smooths, refreshes, and brightens the skin. During this treatment, the Tetra CO2 laser reaches more deeply into the skin to address the underlying layers of the dermis. The results are a more dramatic, effective renewal. Tetra CO2 treatments are versatile, ensuring the treatments can be customized to your needs.

Which laser treatment is best for you? The only way to determine which treatment is the most ideal for your needs is during an in-depth, thoughtful consultation at Beck Aesthetic Surgery. During your consultation, we will examine your skin and discuss your skin concerns. We will understand your aesthetic goals and recommend the best laser treatment to help you achieve the luminous, beautiful skin you desire.
