CO2 lasers have long been the industry standard for treating wrinkles, age spots, and acne scarring. Our award-winning CO2 laser system utilizes fractional laser technology to achieve remarkable skin resurfacing and rejuvenation results. Fractional resurfacing removes minuscule columns of skin while leaving the surrounding tissue intact.
This process uses heat energy and triggers collagen production, which dramatically improves skin texture, reduce fine lines, and tightens the skin for a more youthful appearance. As one of the most advanced CO2 lasers available, we will customize your treatment to your desired outcomes.
In the past, CO2 laser treatments often required considerable downtime to heal, but not anymore, thanks to the award-winning Tetra Cool Peel laser. It’s the only technology that produces a traditional CO2 result with little to no downtime.
The Tetra laser administers precise energy pulses at an appropriate depth and speed for superficial skin resurfacing. This treatment aims to diminish the visibility of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, enhance skin tone and texture, and promote the production of collagen.
After Cool Peel, you can expect to be a little red, like a mild sunburn, for up to a couple of days, and you will notice some mild dryness and scaling that will resolve over the next seven (7) days with gentle cleansing and proper skin hydration. View our before and after pictures, and you’ll see why the Tetra Cool Peel won NewBeauty’s Award for BEST CO2 Laser Treatment for 2023!
The Tetra CO2 laser system is highly versatile, fully customizable, and offers deeper skin resurfacing. Deeper skin resurfacing is ideal for severely sun-damaged skin, acne scarring, and deeper wrinkles. A more aggressive setting requires more downtime of about ten (10) days. Whether you are concerned with the delicate skin around the eyes or stubborn wrinkles around your mouth and brows, your provider can customize your treatment to rejuvenate your skin completely.
The duration of a Cool Peel or Tetra treatment session may vary depending on the treated area size and the extent of the skin concerns. On average, the procedure takes approximately 30-60 minutes to complete. Our dermatologists will discuss the expected treatment duration during your consultation, ensuring you clearly understand the process.
After undergoing a Cool Peel or Tetra treatment, it is typical to encounter slight redness, swelling, and mild discomfort, resembling the effects of a sunburn. These side effects will typically subside in a few days. Our dermatologists will provide detailed post-treatment instructions, including skincare recommendations and measures to protect your skin from sun exposure.
The recovery period after a Cool Peel or Tetra treatment depends on the depth of the treatment and your healing capabilities. Generally, you can expect your skin to gradually improve over several weeks as new, healthier skin cells replace the treated areas. The skin will appear smoother, with reduced wrinkles, pigmentation, acne scars, and other imperfections. Following our dermatologists’ post-treatment care instructions is crucial to optimize the healing process.
Cool Peel and Tetra treatments are suitable for individuals who desire significant improvement in skin texture, reduction of wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and other skin imperfections.

First, however, it is important to schedule a consultation with our dermatologists to determine if you are an ideal candidate for CO2 laser resurfacing. During the evaluation, we will consider factors such as medical history, current medications, and individual skin conditions.
