FAQ’s about CoolPeel ™ laser
How does CoolPeel™ work?
Ablative laser treatment is a technique for eliminating blemished areas from the skin and improving lines and irregularities that result from ageing process and sun damage. CoolPeel™ is a brand new way to safely, and comfortably deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment. By targeting just the superficial layer of skin tissue, damaged skin is removed revealing younger and healthier looking skin.
How is CoolPeel™ different to other treatments?
Standard fractional CO2 treatment go deeper into the skin and are often accompanied by considerable downtime and risk while damaged skin heals. The CoolPeel™ technique can deliver a fractional ablative treatment without the downtime. The laser delivers high energy in extremely short-pulses, leading to superficial, skin resurfacing results without the lingering heat that would traditionally damage the surrounding skin. The lack of unnecessary heat is why we call it cool. Without the lingering heat, there is minimal risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation or induced infection.
What are the benefits of CoolPeel™ treatment?
Benefits of this treatment include the possible reduction or elimination of unsightly pigmented lesion like solar spots or uneven skin colour. Lines and wrinkles may be improved and unevenness due to acne scarring improved.
What happens during a CoolPeel™ procedure?
A local or topical application of anaesthetic can be applied prior to treatment to reduce discomfort caused by the laser, although not all patients require this as we also use a blast of cool air onto your skin during the procedure. The CoolPeel™ procedure will usually take approximately 15mins for a full face treatment. Photographs of the treatment area will be taken for your medical record and for future comparison. Multiple treatments are usually necessary to achieve complete satisfaction.
What is the expected downtime?
One of the main benefits of a CoolPeel™ is that there is minimal downtime. You should expect to be a little red, as if you have a sunburn, for a day, or two, but nothing should prevent you from returning to your normal daily activities. Sometimes the skin can feel a little itchy immediately afterwards. Your skin may feel dry and scaly for up to a week as it heals so it is important to keep the skin hydrated.
What are the possible side effects of CoolPeel ™ Laser?
Possible risks or discomforts (side effects) although rare may include pain, burning, blister formation, stinging sensation, infection, pigmentary changes including decrease or increase in skin colour at the site of treatment, scar formation, laser induced “cold-sore-like” blistering, skin eruptions known as “herpetic” skin eruptions at the site of treatment and poor cosmetic outcome.
In order to ensure a positive outcome with laser treatment, reducing any risk of possible side effects, it is important that you strictly follow the pre and post procedure protocols that will be discussed with you at your consultation.
After your CoolPeel™ treatment, it is important to keep your skin hydrated and there may be certain products you should avoid. Please make sure you have discussed your current daily skincare regimen with us prior to your treatment so that we can give you personalised advice about the best post-treatment care and when you can return to your daily skincare regimen.
Eye injury due to use of the laser is a risk to the patient and to the physician. The risks are almost completely eliminated with the correct use of proper eyewear.
How many treatments will I need to see a difference in my skin?
Although you are likely to see and feel a difference in the quality of your skin after a single treatment, we recommend a course of 3 treatments to see optimal results.
Treatments are usually spaced 3-4 weeks apart.
