CO2 Laser Treatments
CO2 Laser for Skin Rejuvenation
The recent developments with CO2 laser mean that we are now able to provide incredible results but without the long downtime traditionally associated with these treatments.
This advanced laser technology has revolutionized skin treatments, providing a highly effective solution for a range of concerns
The SmartXide utilises a fractional CO2 laser, which delivers precise micro-pulses of laser energy to the skin’s surface. The laser creates microscopic channels in the skin, stimulating the natural healing response and triggering the production of collagen and elastin fibers. This process promotes skin regeneration, effectively reducing the signs of aging, improving skin texture, and enhancing overall skin quality
Options for the face and body

Introducing the SmartXide Cool Peel
Transform your skin and unveil a more youthful, radiant complexion.
What is the SmartXide Cool Peel?
The SmartXide Cool Peel is a cutting-edge skin resurfacing treatment that harnesses the benefits of fractional laser technology to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, minimize scars, and enhance overall skin tone and elasticity.
How does it work?
The SmartXide Cool Peel utilises a fractional CO2 laser, which delivers precise micro-pulses of laser energy to the skin’s surface. The laser creates microscopic channels in the skin, stimulating the natural healing response and triggering the production of collagen and elastin fibers. This process promotes skin regeneration, effectively reducing the signs of aging, improving skin texture, and enhancing overall skin quality.
- Minimal Downtime: One of the significant advantages of the SmartXide Cool Peel is its minimal downtime. Unlike more aggressive laser resurfacing treatments, the Cool Peel allows for a quicker recovery period. While individual experiences may vary, most individuals can resume their regular activities within a few days, with proper post-treatment care.
Experience the Transformation:
The Cool Peel is a versatile treatment that can benefit a wide range of individuals with different skin concerns. It is suitable for both men and women who are looking to improve the appearance and health of their skin. Here are some specific cases where the Cool Peel can be beneficial:
- Aging Skin: The Cool Peel is excellent for individuals with signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. It stimulates collagen production, which helps to improve skin elasticity, firmness, and overall texture, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
- Sun-Damaged Skin: If you have sun-damaged skin with uneven pigmentation, sunspots, or discoloration, the Cool Peel can help restore a more even skin tone. It targets and reduces the appearance of sun damage, giving your skin a refreshed and rejuvenated look.
- Acne Scarring: The Cool Peel can be effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It stimulates cellular turnover, promoting the growth of new, healthier skin cells and helping to fade acne scars over time.
- Uneven Skin Texture: If you have rough or uneven skin texture, enlarged pores, or a dull complexion, the Cool Peel can help improve the overall texture and smoothness of your skin. It promotes exfoliation and encourages the growth of fresh, vibrant skin cells.
- Skin Rejuvenation Maintenance: Even if you don’t have specific skin concerns, the Cool Peel can still be a valuable treatment to maintain and enhance the health and appearance of your skin. It provides a deep exfoliation, removes dead skin cells, and promotes collagen production, resulting in a more radiant and youthful complexion.

What is the treament like?
For stronger treatments on the face and body and for darker skins we will first have a consultation which will include a patch test to check for any signs of pigmentation.
During the consultation, we will discuss your lifestyle and the downtime that you are able to work with.
The Cool Peel does not require a patch test
- The treament is generally comfortable and we will apply a topical anaesthetic beforehand. It will feel like hot pins and needles and is well tolerated
- The skin will feel warm after the treatment and will be red for 1-7 days depending on the treatment. Ice packs can be applied afterwards to lessen the heat. Makeup can be applied from the second day to cover any redness
- The skin may be swollen for a few days, especially when working on the eyes
- You may notice a sandpaper feeling to the skin, this is simply the ablated skin working its way out to reveal fresh, rejuvenated skin underneath.
Commonly Asked Questions
How long does it take?
Treatments are roughly 30-60 minutes
How many treatments will I need?
This really depends on the treatments, for facial rejuvenation, Eye lift & mummy tummy, 1-2 treatments
For more severe acne and other scarring 4-10 treatments may be required
What does the treatment feel like?
Cool Peels are well tolerated and feel like hot pins and needles. For deeper treatments and around the eyes, we will numb the skin beforehand
How long do results last?
The results are permanent, once the skin has been ablated it will not return. The skin will however, continue to age so you may need further treatments in the future.
How will I look afterwards, is there any downtime?
Again this depends on the strength of the treatment
The Cool Peek has around 1-2 days of pink/red skin (this will depend on how sensitive you are), makeup can be applied the following day.

“Natasha provides an impeccable service. From the point of initial email enquiry, I have had a 5 star experience from start to finish. I cannot recommend her highly enough. The quality of her treatments and the skill with which she executes them.”
Does it hurt ?
It is completely normal to feel anxious about the procedures. We use a range of topical anaesthetics to ensure that you are as relaxed as possible during the treatment and that any discomfort is kept to an absolute minimum. Most clients describe the sensation as ‘tingling vibrations’ rather than pain and many fall asleep during the procedure.
