Key Benefits of the Smartxide Tetra CO2

Unmatched Versatility

With the SmartXide Tetra CO2, you have more control than with any other CO2 device. For instance, it has more scanning patterns than its predecessor, the SmartXide Dot CO2 laser. Whether your patients are looking for a CoolPeel® with minimal downtime, a treatment for the delicate area around the eyes, or a one-week surface ablation of wrinkles, this DEKA SmartXide CO2 Laser interface will allow you to deliver treatments with unparalleled precision. It’s a one-of-a-kind CO2 laser for acne scars, wrinkles, dark spots, sun spots, and more.

Four Emission Modes

The operator has complete control with the SmartXide Tetra CO2 handpiece, which eliminates the need to turn to a touchscreen display. Unlike older models, the GUI is modernized with the ability to make timely changes that conform to each individual patient’s anatomy and conditions. Its innovative “spray” mode minimizes pattern overlap while maximizing speed of treatment – unique to the Tetra laser.


The Tetra CO2 laser, which is commonly known as the “CoolPeel® laser”, is the only technology that can perform a CoolPeel. The CoolPeel leverages the exclusive H-Pulse: a high-peak-power short pulse that delivers a fully-ablative treatment without causing thermal damage to surrounding tissue. Without thermal damage, downtime is drastically minimized. At the same time, the system delivers impressive superficial, skin-resurfacing results.
