CoolPeel® - Everything You Need To Know

CoolPeel® Everything You Need To Know Video from United Medical and Aesthetics

CoolPeel® is a fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser treatment for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation.

It is a non-ablative laser treatment that targets the deeper layers of skin without removing the surface layer of skin and stimulates collagen production to improve overall skin tone and texture.


CoolPeel® is performed in a dermatologist’s office or aesthetic clinic. During treatment, a specialized CO2 laser delivers precise beams of light to create microscopic columns of heat in the skin.

These heat columns stimulate the body’s natural healing ability, which boosts collagen production and skin rejuvenation.

Treatment is performed in a controlled manner and can be customized based on the patient’s skin type and concerns.

This treatment can address several skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tone, and acne scars. It can be used on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands.

The “cool” approach is a unique aspect of CoolPeel® as the treatment incorporates a controlled cooling system that helps minimize discomfort, making it more tolerable than traditional CO2 laser treatments.

This cooling system helps to protect the skin’s surface and reduces the risk of thermal injury while promoting faster recovery.

CoolPeel® typically has minimal downtime compared to more aggressive ablative laser treatments. Patients may experience mild redness and swelling after the treatment, but this usually resolves within a few hours to a day.

Some patients may experience mild peeling or flaking of the skin a few days after treatment, but patients may quickly return to their normal activities.

Call us today for a consultation to evaluate your skin type, assess your specific concerns, and discuss the treatment’s potential risks, benefits, and expected outcomes.
