Coolpeel utilizes a revolutionary CO2 laser treatment that is safe, effective and requires less downtime than traditional ablative treatments. Coolpeel can dramatically reduce fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, uneven skin tone, large pores and acne scars while tightening loose skin – an ideal option for patients of all ages looking to combat signs of aging as well as sun damage that leads to wrinkles.

CoolPeel treatments use DEKA’s SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser, of which Cartessa is the exclusive U.S. distributor. This unique laser allows us to tailor treatments according to each patient’s specific needs by dialing in power and pulse size for each session; with such precision comes achieving similar results as other ablative lasers without their associated side effects.

During treatment, short, pulsating laser beams are directed at your skin to heat water molecules within its deep layers and stimulate natural healing responses that result in new collagen production and tightening. Over time, this produces a smoother and younger looking appearance.

CoolPeel treatments typically last just 15 minutes. A topical numbing cream will be applied for your comfort during the process and protective eyewear is worn during it. After the procedure, some redness similar to mild sunburn may develop post-treatment; it should resolve itself within 24 hours. It is important that after receiving CoolPeel treatments you keep the treated area moisturized as much as possible and avoid direct sun exposure for at least 24 hours following their administration.

CoolPeel results may continue to improve for up to six months after treatment; to maximize results and ensure their long-term beauty, return for follow-up treatments on an ongoing basis.

CoolPeel is an effective solution for patients looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin pigmentation, shrink enlarged pores and tighten loose skin on their face, neck or hands. Additionally, other nonsurgical approaches like IPL for sunspot removal or Restylane Lyft fillers to restore volume can be combined for additional rejuvenation of hands and restore volume loss.


Laser skin tightening is a safe, non-surgical procedure to tighten loose, sagging facial and body skin. The Titan(tm) device delivers targeted infrared energy into deep layers of the skin to immediately tighten existing collagen, firm up loose tissue, reduce loose tissue volume immediately while at the same time tighten existing collagen to create firmer tone and texture in just an hour or less. In addition, it has proven its worth in improving redness, rosacea and acne conditions by targeting specific spots of inflammation within those layers as well.

Titanium handpieces are placed directly on the skin, and pulses of deeply penetrating heat are applied through pulsed needles into deeper layers of the skin, instantly tightening it while stimulating new collagen formation, leading to further tightening and firming of loose skin. Treatment is exceptionally comfortable and can be done on any area of the face or body – particularly effective at tightening loose skin in lower facial, jawline, under-chin area as well as neck or abdominal skin sag.

Non-Surgical Face Lift is an effective non-invasive alternative to surgical face lifting that produces immediate lifting results and tightens and firms the skin over a three month period. Specifically designed to target lower face, jaw line and nasolabial folds of all skin colors; particularly effective on men. In order to maximise results after your treatment it is advised that you use a good quality 50+ sun block 2-3 times weekly post treatment in order to protect it against UV damage that likely caused loose skin in the first place.

Levulan Kerastick Photodynamic Therapy

Levulan Kerastick Photodynamic Therapy (PDT), FDA-approved by the Food and Drug Administration, is a two-part procedure combining a photosensitizer, topical application of delta-aminolevulinic acid hydrochloride (LEVULAN KERASTICK), and timed exposure to special blue light to treat actinic keratoses, red flaky spots which may become cancerous with time, as well as warts, psoriasis sun damage enlarged sebaceous glands enlarged sebaceous glands enlarged sebaceous glands wrinkles and wrinkles.

As part of the initial procedure, your dermatologist will apply LEVULAN KERASTICK to your face and scalp or other areas with multiple actinic keratoses. Subsequently, they will instruct you to avoid sunlight and any bright indoor lighting (examination lights, operating room lamps, tanning beds or any lights close to your skin such as examination lights or tanning beds) for 40 hours as LEVULAN KERASTICK makes your skin sensitive to sunlight or any light-based treatments; exposure may cause burning sensation or make treated lesions appear reddened or swollen – therefore wear wide-brimmed hat and long-sleeved shirt for extra protection if possible.

Your physician will advise on the frequency and length of treatments during your initial consultation, typically every 4 to 6 weeks. After finishing treatment, the most frequently reported side effect is temporary redness that lasts between three to ten days; additionally there may be areas of darker or lighter skin as a result of Levulan-assisted PDT that could darken or lighten in certain places. Please be aware that anyone suffering from porphyria, systemic lupus erythematosus or allergic to aminolevulinic acid should avoid Levulan-assisted PDT treatments as these procedures should not be undertaken as it would not work as intended.

Follow up appointments are especially crucial in the initial years after treatment to detect new lesions and ensure all actinic keratoses have been eliminated completely. If they have not, further measures such as biopsies, surgery or radiation may be necessary in order to completely treat them. For the initial few years it is usually every 4-6 months; subsequent years can vary but usually can happen once or twice annually.
