At Cape & Islands Plastic Surgery, we have a variety of laser services that our staff of highly trained and certified surgeons and practitioners use. With CoolPeel, patients can safely and comfortably get the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment. CoolPeel only targets the superficial layer of skin that is commonly damaged by UV light from the sun. This makes the skin look healthier and removes sun damage as well as fine lines and spots.
CO2 laser services have been used for decades for wrinkle treatment as well as the removal of age spots and acne scars. However, previous laser services had the drawback of long downtime after treatment. CoolPeel allows patients to get all the benefits of a CO2 laser treatment without any risk or downtime.
