, Fractional CO2 Resurfacing

Fractional CO2 Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is the most effective treatment to remove wrinkles, scars, precancerous lesions, and to erase 20+ years of aging from your skin. Light, medium, and deep laser resurfacing are available to meet your needs and lifestyle. Treatment can be performed either in a single session, or with milder treatments over multiple sessions. The entire face can be treated or if you have problematic areas, such as around the eyes or the mouth, a customized treatment plan can be designed just for you. Downtime can range from 2 days to 1-2 weeks depending on which type of resurfacing is recommended.

Fractional Resurfacing With SmartXide DOT

What is the smartxide dot laser?

The SmartXide CO2 laser is an FDA-approved resurfacing laser that can dramatically restore your skin’s youthful appearance without the downtime and discomfort required with traditional resurfacing.  DOT therapy (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) affects only a fraction of your skin by creating thousands of microscopic laser spots (“DOT’s”) in your skin which induce immediate skin tightening and stimulate new collagen growth. This technology combines the great and proven results of a traditional CO2 laser, considered the gold standard in laser resurfacing for over 15 years, with only a fraction of the downtime.

How does it work?

A pattern of tiny dots of laser energy is applied to the skin.  It creates an ablative and thermal effect at the target area – without disturbing the surrounding tissue.  The healthy surrounding skin enables your skin to heal more rapidly.  These targeted areas start the process of healing as collagen remodels, skin tightens and the skin texture and tone improves.

What does it treat?

DOT therapy is a safe and effective way to treat sun damage/brown spots, skin laxity, textural changes, enlarged pores, fine lines and deep wrinkles, acne scars, and other scars on the face, neck, chest or hands.

How many treatments will it take to see the best results?

Depending on the degree of damage to your skin and the desired outcome, most patients can expect excellent results after a single session.  However, for severe wrinkles or deep scars, patients may require a series of treatments.

How much improvement can i expect?

Patients should expect to see immediate improvement in the color, texture and quality of the skin with a week or two after the treatment; however, more significant improvement will be seen a month or so after due to the collagen stimulation effect.

What does the laser treatment feel like?

There is minimal, if any, discomfort during the procedure. Rarely, a mild burning sensation may occur.

What can i expect after the treatment?

Most patients experience redness, flaking and/or peeling for 5 – 7 days after treatment. Depending on the number of passes performed, your healing time may vary.


What Is CoolPeel?

CoolPeel is a new way to comfortably deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment. When we target just the superficial layer of skin tissue, damaged skin is removed revealing younger and healthier-looking skin.

What Makes CoolPeel Different?

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 also a minimized risk of hyperpigmentation.

How Does CoolPeel Work?

CoolPeel laser treatment can only be done using the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser. The Tetra is the latest, most advanced CO2 laser from DEKA, a global leader in aesthetic technology. Only Tetra can control its output to deliver high energy in extremely short-pulses to deliver impressive 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 – get it?

Candidate For CoolPeel Laser Treatment

You are a good candidate for CoolPeel laser treatment if you are looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and sun damage, minimize pores, and improves skin texture. Call our office at 888-218-3960 if you are interested in scheduling a consultation for this treatment.

How Long Does CoolPeel Take?

The CoolPeel is very quick! If we are doing your entire face it will take anywhere from 5-15 minutes.

Recovery After CoolPeel Laser.

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.  Your skin may feel dry and scaly as it heals so it is important to keep the skin hydrated and to wear sunscreen to protect your skin!
