Tetra CO2 Laser
WHAT IS CO2 LASER RESURFACING?
CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser resurfacing is an is a non-surgical option for turning back the hands of time on your skin and bring back a more youthful appearance. A CO2 ablative resurfacing laser, removes layers of skin to produce new, healthier cells. This laser precisely directs heat to deep outer layers of damaged skin, creating micro-wounds which signals your body to start a healing process. This is achieved by producing higher levels of collagen and which in turn create new, healthier skin cells. CO2 lasers treat skin at superficial and deep levels addressing significant signs of aging.
The SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser is one of the most advanced CO2 technologies available. This cutting-edge technology features more operating settings to allow providers the opportunity to customize the intensity, depth, and shape of the laser energy. Therefore, making your treatment more precise, providing better results, and minimizing side effects and downtime.
Depending upon your desired results, your DEKA treatment can be a more intense treatment with longer downtime or a more superficial treatment with minimal downtime.

WHAT IS COOLPEEL?
CoolPeel is a brand new way to safely, and comfortably deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment by the Tetra SmartXide laser. CoolPeel is a new treatment that has virtually eliminated discomfort associated with fractional CO2 laser and reduced the downtime to as little as one day. By targeting just the superficial layer of skin tissue, damaged skin is removed revealing younger and healthier looking skin.
WHAT MAKES COOLPEEL DIFFERENT?
CO2 lasers are the gold standard in treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes as well as tighten skin and balance tone. Damaged skin tissue is removed, or ablated, stimulating new collagen production and heat energy is delivered to tighten the skin. Sounds great but CO2 treatments are often accompanied by considerable downtime and risk while damaged skin heals.Many advances have been made to improve the side effects of CO2 treatments but ONLY the CoolPeel can deliver a fractional ablative treatment without the downtime. There is minimal risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation or induced infection.
