Non-Invasive Laser Skin Resurfacing in Tampa Bay
We at the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay are thrilled to offer the new Tetra CO2 Laser with CoolPeel! CoolPeel is a brand new way to safely and comfortably deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment. By targeting just the superficial layer of skin tissue, damaged skin is removed to reveal younger and healthier-looking skin. CoolPeel is the next generation of CO2 with all the results and minimal downtime.
CO2 lasers have long been the gold standard in treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes as well as tighten skin and balance tone.1 However, traditional CO2 treatments have long been associated with considerable downtime. The precision and the control of the CoolPeel allows you to get the skin resurfacing benefits without the downtime and risk of more traditional procedures.
What is the Tetra CO2 Laser?
The Tetra CO2 laser is one of the most advanced systems on the market. It’s the next generation CO2 with customizable settings controlling power, density and pulse duration. Tetra CO2 laser treatments eliminate signs of aging like wrinkles, sunspots, uneven texture and age spots for dramatically smoother, brighter, younger-looking skin. The unique qualities of the Tetra CO2 make it highly versatile and an optimal choice for every patient, regardless of skin type. Tetra CO2 laser skin resurfacing works with your lifestyle for the radiant results you want, but without the downtime.

What Types of Tetra CO2 Laser Treatments Are Available?
Due to the customizable nature of the Tetra laser, the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay is proud to offer two distinct skin resurfacing treatments, both for deep skin resurfacing and light superficial resurfacing. The CoolPeel is for superficial resurfacing with minimal downtime while the DEKA pulse is a more aggressive CO2 resurfacing with all the benefits, but with less downtime than traditional CO2.
How Does CoolPeel Work?
A CoolPeel laser treatment can only be done using the Tetra CO2 laser. The Tetra is the latest, most advanced CO2 laser from DEKA, a global leader in aesthetic technology. Only Tetra can control its output to deliver high energy in extremely short-pulses, providing impressive superficial, skin resurfacing results without the lingering heat that would traditionally damage the surrounding skin. The lack of unnecessary heat is why we call it cool – get it? – and how you get an immediate aesthetic effect with minimal downtime.
The Tetra CO2 removes top layers of damaged skin tissue and stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin underneath. Tetra is a proven laser technology for treating deeper facial lines, age spots, scarring and textural irregularities. New collagen is formed and elastin is tightened for long-lasting benefits.
What is the Recovery Time for CoolPeel?
Tetra CO2 has the flexibility to customize for each patient’s needs. One of the main benefits of a CoolPeel is that there is minimal downtime. You should expect to be a little red, as if you have a sunburn, for a day or two, but nothing should prevent you from returning to your normal daily activities. Your skin may feel dry and scaly as it heals, so it is important to keep skin hydrated. Tetra also can offer DEKA pulse deeper CO2 with 3-5 days downtime for patients with severe wrinkles, acne scars and skin laxity.
When Can I Return to My Skincare Routine?
After your CoolPeel treatment, it is important to keep your skin hydrated and there may be certain products you should avoid. Talk to your provider about the best post-treatment care and when you can return to your daily skincare regimen.
Who is A Good Candidate for Tetra CO2 Laser Treatments?
Most patients are good candidates for the Tetra CO2 laser. This laser platform is safe, gentle and customizable based on each patient’s needs and skin type. Patients seeking correction of sun damage, acne scars, skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles can achieve great results with this next generation CO2 without any risk or prolonged downtime.
What is the Cost of Tetra CO2 Laser Treatments?
All our laser prices are customizable and affordable. Dr. Hunt’s motto is, “there is no reason to have amazing technology if no one can afford it.” For over 30 years we have been offering “Beauty through Science” and strive to offer the best treatments, patient outcomes and patient experiences with everything we do.
