CoolPeel is typically associated with 1-2 days of downtime and minimal symptoms, which is different from other laser treatments that require days/months of recovery. For the first day or so after treatment, you may experience redness similar to a sunburn. Your skin will feel slightly rough to the touch for 1-2 weeks. Once you pass the rough skin stage of healing, your skin will feel tighter, softer, and look more even.
CoolPeel laser treatment settings can be adjusted according to the downtime you desire. If you prefer more aggressive treatments and more dramatic results with fewer sessions, downtime with redness and swelling can last approximately one week.
It is important to keep the skin hydrated, as it can easily become dry. However, do not cleanse the area for 24 hours.
Taking special care after the procedure is as important as the treatment itself! We’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions. While results will vary, you’ll notice an improvement to your skin after just one treatment – it will feel tighter, softer, and look more even.
