Also known as brown spots, liver spots, or sun spots, these pesky hyperpigmented areas are a perfectly normal sign of aging. UV rays can cause an overproduction of melanin, the natural pigment that gives skin its color. Over a lifetime of exposure, clusters of these pigmented areas (age spots) may crop up across the face, hands, arms, and chest.
Although age spots don’t require medical care and are perfectly safe, some people find them to be a source of insecurity and frustration. Watching your skin change as you age can be a bit frightening. Luckily, you can easily treat age spots near Corvallis with CO2 Cool Peel treatment!
What is CO2 Cool Peel?
CO2 lasers have long been the gold standard in treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes. The deep skin rejuvenation that comes with a CO2 laser treatment is unmatched! However, laser treatments are associated with significant downtime.
With the added technology of state-of-the-art Cool Peel technology, those with busy schedules can enjoy the benefits of laser therapy with little to no downtime! Using the Cartessa SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser, Dr. Levitt and the medical team are able to treat age spots and other blemishes, and send you home with only a day to a few days of downtime.
How does CO2 Cool Peel work?
This innovative new treatment can only be performed using SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser. The Tetra is the latest, most advanced CO2 laser from DEKA, a global leader in aesthetic technology.
Using this technology, Dr. Levitt and our team can control the output of high energy in extremely short, precise pulses that target specific areas of treatment and leave the surrounding skin free of damage. This lack of unnecessary heat is how we achieve such short periods of downtime, while also delivering fantastic results!

Laser resurfacing targets these spots with light energy, heating the deeper layer of skin and promoting new, healthy skin cell growth. This can provide substantial benefits and treat wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and unwanted pigmentation.
Age spots are areas of highly concentrated pigmentation. To treat age spots near Corvallis, Dr. Levitt and our medical team use laser technology, which removes the hyperpigmented skin cells and urges your skin to begin producing young, fresh cells in their place, reducing the appearance of age spots!

Are there any side effects?
Patients report mild redness, and you might experience a slight sensation similar to a sunburn. Depending on the depth of the procedure, these side effects could range from mild to moderate and will subside after a few days.
Recovery and Results
One of the major benefits of using Cool Peel when undergoing any laser treatment is very little to no downtime! Because the Tetra CO2 laser is customizable, recovery periods may vary slightly. The most intense treatments may require up to a week of recovery, but effective mild treatments require none at all!
The treatment is typically quick (5 to 20 minutes), and you can expect to start seeing results within a week! After about 3 to 6 months you will see the full, gorgeous results of the procedure. Laser skin resurfacing is semi-permanent. Lifestyle, age, and diet all can affect the length of lasting results. Here are a few tips to maintain your results:
- Stay hydrated
- Don’t smoke
