Greenwich Laser Resurfacing With the Cartessa CO2 CoolPeel Laser

Laser resurfacing has been the gold-standard treatment in skin rejuvenation for decades. A powerful laser targets abnormalities on the skin’s surface. The laser ablates, or removes, damaged tissue. Removing these damaged cells helps the body rejuvenate and heal. Laser treatments offer significant results and can dramatically improve the skin’s appearance.

While traditional laser treatments are highly effective, they can come with significant downtime and discomfort. When seeking a laser for our center, Dr. Margoles prioritized finding an option that provided her patients with superior results and a more comfortable treatment experience. The Cartessa CO2 CoolPeel laser provides our patients with the results of a traditional laser treatment without downtime or discomfort.

CoolPeel uses one of the most advanced CO2 lasers on the market, the SmartXide Tetra laser. This laser delivers its high-powered beam via short pulses at low energy settings. A shorter pulse allows for less thermal damage to the skin while maintaining an ablative laser’s powerful results. 

The CoolPeel laser offers many benefits over traditional laser resurfacing, including:

  • Shorter recovery period with minimal downtime

  • Highly customizable treatment protocols for enhanced results
  • The transformative results patients expect from a laser treatment

By using the Cartessa CO2 CoolPeel laser, we can offer patients better results with less downtime and discomfort than that associated with traditional laser therapy. We look forward to helping our patients experience the benefits of this powerful but gentle laser.

FAQ About Laser Resurfacing in Greenwich

We typically recommend that patients receive an initial series of treatments at the beginning of the laser resurfacing process. Dr. Margoles will recommend a certain number of treatments depending on the condition of your skin and your desired results. Most patients require three to four treatments, spaced every four weeks to achieve the desired results. 

Dr. Margoles may suggest ongoing treatments to maintain your results after the initial appointment series

Laser rejuvenation is a highly effective option on its own. However, many patients choose to combine laser skin care with other surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Some options can work in concert to enhance and magnify results. 

Many of our patients opt to combine dermal fillers  or RF Microneedling with the CoolPeel laser. These two treatments work synergistically to smooth and tighten skin laxity. This treatment combination offers results that rival a surgical procedure with significantly less downtime.

We believe in a customized treatment approach for every patient, but this can make it difficult to estimate treatment costs without an in-person meeting. We’ll provide a detailed estimate for your treatment costs during your consultation with Dr. Margoles. Reach out to a member of our team to schedule your first visit to our office today.

The CoolPeel laser is safe for many skin types and tones. Since it is an ablative laser, some patients with darker skin may be at an increased risk for pigmentation problems after treatment. A consultation is the best way to determine if this treatment option is right for you. 

If laser treatment isn’t an ideal way to rejuvenate your skin, Dr. Margoles can recommend alternatives that are safe and effective for your skin type.

Patients start to see results shortly after their first treatment, usually within seven to 10 days. As collagen levels in the skin increase, results continue to improve for several months after the laser procedure.

Laser resurfacing offers long-lasting results. Many patients enjoy their renewed appearance for one to two years or more after treatment.

Patients can resume their typical routines quickly after a CoolPeel laser treatment. We’ll provide detailed instructions for caring for your skin, but following your typical skin care regimen is our main recommendation. Patients should cleanse and moisturize their skin using a gentle cleanser and a hydrating moisturizer each day. As the skin heals, it may be more sensitive to the sun. Limit direct sun exposure and wear sunscreen daily.
