Cartessa Aesthetics Introduces CoolPeel™ – An Advanced Laser Peel Treatment That Makes the Benefits Of CO2 Resurfacing More Accessible For Patients

Only the Tetra CO2 by DEKA can perform this fractional ablative treatment with minimal downtime


Melville, New York; May 15, 2019 – CO2 lasers have long been regarded as an aesthetic gold standard for treating aging skin and have become synonymous with real improvement in wrinkles, age spots, and skin texture.  However, these results come at the expense of days to weeks of downtime thus limiting those raising their hands for CO2 laser treatments to those who are willing to take the time to heal or where there are no other options available.

Cartessa Aesthetics, a leading distributor of aesthetic medical devices for dermatologists, plastic surgeons, cosmetic physicians, and medical spas, is introducing the CoolPeel – advanced laser treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines, sun damage and pores as well as improve skin texture with virtually no downtime.  The CoolPeel exploits the benefits of the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser by DEKA for which Cartessa is the exclusive distributor in the U.S. market.

“Our goal at Cartessa is to not only select the best aesthetic technologies available but then translate advancements into new revenue streams for our customers,” shared Gabe Lubin, founder, and CEO of Cartessa.  “DEKA is regarded as the best CO2 laser manufacturer globally.  We worked closely with them to hone in on Tetra’s unique capabilities and what new treatments it can deliver to meet the needs of today’s aesthetic patients.”

The CoolPeel represents a new, more inclusive use of CO2 laser technology that can only be performed by the SmartXide Tetra CO2.  The CoolPeel leverages the Tetra’s exclusive H-pulse – a high-peak-power, short pulse that delivers a fractional ablative treatment without thermal damage to the surrounding tissue.  No thermal damage means that downtime is highly controlled and minimized while impressive superficial, skin-resurfacing results are delivered.  Only the Tetra CO2 has this unique pulse control.

Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Carey Nease has already seen the benefits of CoolPeel to his practice and for his patients; “In the past, all my CO2 laser patients would need IV anesthesia or would be treated in the OR.  The CoolPeel allows me to treat patients in my office in under ten minutes and offer them a predictable skin renewal treatment with minimal downtime. Patients don’t want downtime so they are loving that any redness is typically gone in a few days.”
