CoolPeel® CO2 Laser in Scottsdale, AZ

Are you looking for a way to achieve younger-looking skin without an extensive recovery? For years, patients have undergone CO2 laser treatments to improve signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and sun spots. However, many laser skin resurfacing treatments are painful and require significant downtime.

A CoolPeel® provides the benefits of traditional CO2 laser resurfacing without the need for a lengthy recovery. The CoolPeel® is a CO2 fractional ablative treatment that precisely targets the superficial layer of skin. Signs of aging and sun damage are reduced for smoother skin without the downtime.

What Does CoolPeel® Treat?


CoolPeel® can help even out uneven skin tone, such as hyperpigmentation (red and brown spots), sun spots, and other blemishes.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

This treatment is performed to resurface the skin. When this occurs, many patients notice smoother skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles.

Acne Scarring

Many adults still struggle with large pores, active acne, and acne scars. The CoolPeel® can be used to minimize pore size and lighten scars.

What Can Be Achieved With CoolPeel®?

Younger-Looking Skin

Younger-Looking Skin

Aging is inevitable, and when we age, our appearance can change drastically. Visible aging signs are a reminder to ourselves and everyone around us that we are getting older. The CoolPeel® CO2 laser treatment creates younger and healthier-looking skin that you can feel confident in.

Smoother Skin

Smoother Skin

Fine lines and acne scarring can cause your face to appear bumpy and creviced. CoolPeel® treatment works to eliminate fine lines, scarring, enlarged pores, and other texture concerns to improve the smoothness of the skin.

Improved Skin Tone

Improved Skin Tone

Over time, many people experience dark patches and sun spots (age spots) that give them an uneven skin tone. This hyperpigmentation can be difficult to cover with concealer or other makeup products. The CoolPeel® laser works to reduce or eliminate hyperpigmentation and provide you with a more even, radiant complexion.

CoolPeel® CO2 Laser Treatment Procedure

The CoolPeel® laser treatment can be performed with or without a topical anesthetic. However, many doctors provide a numbing cream to ensure their patients are comfortable throughout the procedure.

The CoolPeel® treatment uses the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser to treat the skin without unnecessary heat. Only the Tetra can deliver high energy in short pulses to resurface the skin with reduced heat and improved safety.


Recovery Icon Recovery

One of the main benefits of CoolPeel® is that there is no need for downtime. You are free to return to work and other obligations immediately after your treatment. However, sun exposure should be avoided.

For the first day or so after treatment, you may experience redness similar to a sunburn. It is important to keep the skin hydrated, as it can easily become dry. However, do not cleanse the area for 24 hours.

Scars Icon Scars

This treatment is performed to remove unwanted facial scarring, such as acne scarring. No additional scarring will develop after this treatment.

Pain Icon Pain

A topical anesthetic can be applied to soothe the skin; however, this isn’t always necessary. Any post-treatment discomfort can be alleviated with cold compresses and over-the-counter pain medication.

Your CoolPeel® cost will depend on your specific goals and the amount of correction needed. After a consultation with Dr. Spies, he can determine the specific cost of your CoolPeel® treatment.

How long will my CoolPeel® treatment take to perform?

With CoolPeel®, your laser treatment will be completed in five to 20 minutes.

Why is recovery from a CoolPeel® treatment so much shorter than traditional CO2 laser recovery?

Traditional CO2 lasers use heat to correct troubled areas, but this can cause damage to the surrounding skin that takes time to heal. Typically, CO2 laser treatments require a long, painful recovery where you will need to rest and recover for around two weeks.

Thankfully, CoolPeel® is different. This advanced laser delivers high energy in extremely short pulses, which reduces the amount of heat and prevents skin damage. After CoolPeel® treatment, there is nothing stopping you from returning immediately to your normal life.

Is the CoolPeel® laser treatment an alternative to a facelift?

No. CoolPeel® is not an alternative to a facelift because it is significantly less invasive and addresses different concerns. A facelift works deep beneath the skin to correct severe wrinkling and sagging, whereas the CoolPeel® laser focuses on the superficial layers of the skin to correct issues with skin tone and texture.

To determine if you will benefit most from facelift surgery or CoolPeel® laser treatment, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Spies at his Arizona office.

Is the CoolPeel® laser treatment safe?

The CoolPeel® laser is intended to be a safe alternative to traditional CO2 lasers. When performed by a qualified surgeon, there is little risk involved.

Please speak with Dr. Spies if you are concerned about the risks regarding the CoolPeel® laser treatment.
