The Tetra CoolPeel™ Procedure

Your Tetra CoolPeel™ treatment will take place at our Annapolis, MD clinic and will take approximately 15 minutes, depending on the extent of your treatment area.

Tetra CoolPeel™ works by delivering controlled laser energy to your skin. While many laser treatments target the entire area in one session, CoolPeel only treats a specific portion of your skin leaving untouched areas in between treated areas that help boost recovery and healing.

When the CoolPeel energy is applied to your face, the treated areas produce new collagen and elastin. The fractional CO2 laser is fully customizable allowing Dr. Murthy to deliver higher or lower energy where necessary based on your specific needs and desired result. Your entire face is typically treated gradually over four sessions each spaced one month apart.

How Long Is Recovery?

One of the benefits that sets apart CoolPeel from other laser treatments is the minimal recovery time. You may experience mild redness and dryness but should be able to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment except for direct sun exposure or sweating for the first 24 hours. You should also avoid applying any products to your face other than the moisturizer recommended by Dr. Murthy for the first 24 hours.

What Are the Risks of Tetra CoolPeel™?

Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment.  Depending on the depth of treatment, risks include hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, prolonged redness, bumps, scars, or infection. Our office guides you in the best skin care products to use post-procedure to minimize complications and maximize results.

How Do I Know if I am a Candidate for Tetra CoolPeel™?

One of the most innovative features of the CoolPeel treatment is that it is safe for all skin types. Nearly everyone experiences brighter, smoother and more even skin after just one treatment. There are some medical conditions that would not allow for skin resurfacing. Dr. Murthy will perform a thorough review of your medical history to determine your candidacy.

When Will I See My Results?

Dramatic results will be visible in the first seven days after treatment. As your skin continues to heal and improve, the full effects will appear over a three to six-month period

Most patients will be able to see improvements after just one session. However, depending on the depth of your treatment needs, you may require a few CoolPeel™ treatment sessions before you achieve your desired results. Our Annapolis, MD specialists can help you design a customized Tetra CoolPeel™ treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.

Is the CoolPeel™ Painful?

There is very minimal discomfort during a fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatment. A topical anesthetic will be applied to the targeted skin. Numbing injections as well as oral sedatives are also available to make the procedure extremely tolerable. Post-procedure, there is minimal pain. The skin will feel warm and tight for the first 24 hours and then begin to heal to reveal more radiant skin.
