What is Cartessa SmartXide Tetra Featuring CoolPeel™?
The SmartXide Tetra laser system by Cartessa is an advanced CO2 laser system. CO2 lasers have become an essential tool for cosmetic skincare, as they can be used for a broad range of powerful skin rejuvenation treatments. The SmartXide Tetra system has improved upon standard CO2 laser technology to provide an even more versatile laser solution, which can be fully customized and optimized based on the patient’s needs.
While the SmartXide Tetra laser system can be used for a variety of laser treatments, it is the only laser system that can perform the CoolPeel™ laser facial. CoolPeel™ is an ablative skin resurfacing treatment, meaning that it removes the outermost layers of skin. Traditionally, this ablative laser technique creates unnecessary damage in the surrounding skin and results in extended periods of downtime. With the SmartXide Tetra laser and the CoolPeel™ treatment, this problem is eliminated. There is no thermal damage to the surrounding skin, drastically reducing downtime and side effects while still producing the impressive benefits that CO2 laser treatments are known for.
How Much Do SmartXide Tetra Treatments Cost?
The cost of your SmartXide Tetra laser treatments will vary depending on the treatment performed and the number of treatment sessions needed to produce your desired results. For an exact estimate on your SmartXide Tetra laser treatment costs, we invite patients to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis and our team.
What are the Benefits of CoolPeel™?
The CoolPeel™ treatment offers the timeless benefits of CO2 laser treatments, as well as some advantages over traditional technologies. These include:
- Reduces lines and wrinkles
- Minimizes sun damage and pore size
- Improves skin tone and texture
- Reduces acne scars and other blemishes
- Tightens the skin
- No downtime or damage to the surrounding skin
What Can I Expect During My CoolPeel™ Treatment?
The CoolPeel™ treatment requires no numbing or pain medication, as it’s generally well-tolerated. As treatment begins, the SmartXide Tetra device will be used to deliver quick pulses of laser energy to the desired treatment area. This process usually takes less than 30 minutes for a full facial treatment, although the duration of treatment can vary if other treatment areas are involved.
What Results Can I Expect from CoolPeel™?
You will begin to notice the results of your CoolPeel™ treatment within one to two weeks of your visit. These results will continue to improve for up to three months after your CoolPeel™ treatment session. Keep in mind, we may recommend a series of CoolPeel™ treatments for optimal results. In these cases, full results will not be visible until three months after your final treatment session. However, thanks to the advanced SmartXide Tetra laser system, there is little to no downtime involved, so your normal routine and activities will not be interrupted.
Am I A Good Candidate for CoolPeel™?
If you are looking for a CO2 laser resurfacing treatment that doesn’t require extensive downtime, CoolPeel™ treatments may be right for you.
