If you looking to achieve healthier-looking skin, there are so many options available on the market, however, the problem with options is that it can be difficult to decide which is the best for you. Laser resurfacing has been a game-changer in the aesthetic community, but several different laser options do different things and may even have longer recovery times. Now, the game has been changed again with Cartessa CoolPeel at Seychelles Med & Laser Spa in The Woodlands. In just a short amount of time, you can increase your skin’s texture and reduce fine lines, sun damage, and pore size with a recovery time as short as a day! To learn more about this revolutionary treatment, please keep reading the information we have provided below.
What is Cartessa CoolPeel?
Cartessa CoolPeel is a new CO₂ Laser treatment that practically eliminates any discomfort that is normally associated with fractional lasers with reduced downtime. The CoolPeel laser treatment uses the most advanced CO₂ laser on the market called the Smartxide Tetra laser. This laser is designed to deliver high power in extremely short bursts while at a low-energy setting which creates a controlled injury to your epidermis and superficial dermis. This means there is less heat build-up in your skin so it can offer an optimal level of ablation with minimal damage to the surrounding tissue.
It can be performed on almost any part of your skin but is primarily used on the Face, Chest, and Neck area.

What It’s Like to Get Laser Resurfacing
What’s the first step?
The first step in getting a CoolPeel in The Woodlands is to contact Seychelles Med & Laser Spa to schedule a consultation. During this meeting, you will be able to ask any questions you have about the treatment and express your skin aspirations. The Provider will ask you about your medical history to ensure that there are no unnecessary risks during the procedure or your recovery, and finally examine your skin to create your treatment plan. If you agree with the plan, you should be able to have your first session performed that day. If for any reason you wish to reschedule, our Patient Coordinator will be more than happy to help you find the best day and time for you.
What to Expect on the Day of Cartessa CoolPeel
When you come into our Medical Spa for your procedure, we will have you make yourself comfortable on one of our treatment chairs. The treatment itself is highly tolerated by most patients and doesn’t require any numbing cream, however, we can provide you with some if you would like. The laser technician will take the laser head and press it up to your skin, and within a few seconds, the laser pulse will work its magic, leaving behind a dotted, square-like pattern on your skin.
The entire treatment will take about 15 minutes per area.
Cartessa Cool Peel Recovery
What is the downtime?
After your CoolPeel treatment, you will be able to return home, but you should take it easy for about 24 hours to heal. Your skin may have a pinkish hue and be slightly grainy, but you can still do most activities, however, you should try to avoid direct sunlight for about two weeks. We will recommend your after-care skin regimen and will recommend applying lotion as needed to moisturize your skin.

Cartessa CoolPeel FAQs
Not at all! Cartessa CoolPeel is a virtually painless and easy treatment for most patients. If you are extra sensitive, we can offer a numbing cream that should make your experience more comfortable.
To see the best results, we advise our patients to have at least a series of three sessions, all spaced out by about a month. We will always let you know when you should return at the end of each session. If you begin to notice any negative changes later on, you can always come back for maintenance treatments.
You should be able to notice results around a week following your treatment, with even better results after each additional treatment.
Absolutely! Cartessa CoolPeel pairs wonderfully with RF Microneedling to help with skin laxity. If you are looking for any particular results or would like to hear about other options we offer, please feel free to discuss your goals with your Seychelles Aesthetician and they will be happy to offer up their recommendations.
The great thing about Cartessa CoolPeel is that it is an incredibly safe procedure, however, since it is a laser treatment, there are potential risks or side effects associated with it, such as:
Dry, scaly skin
Hyper- or Hypo- pigmentation (usually only in patients with olive or brown skin)
While all of these reactions should heal over time, if you notice any long-lasting or concerning results during your recovery, please contact us immediately.
