CoolTouch laser energy improves your skin by stimulating collagen production to plump out wrinkles and elevate acne scars. It also constricts oil glands to suppress active acne. While you shouldn’t expect complete removal of wrinkles and acne scars, each CoolTouch treatment provides progressive skin rejuvenation and wrinkle removal. Patients who visit us are consistently pleased with the younger, healthier appearance of their skin.
The CoolTouch treatment itself is complete in less than 15 minutes, but we recommend a topical anesthetic be applied an hour beforehand to ensure your comfort. After treatment, your skin will likely look red for about 30 to 60 minutes, but you can resume your normal activities immediately. For optimal results, we usually suggest a series of 5 treatments, spaced a month apart. After 2 to 3 months, the increase in collagen will be noticeable and you will start seeing results. The appearance of your skin will continue to improve, even after your last treatment.
The improvements in your acne scars are long lasting. Unfortunately, because the aging process continues, fine lines will eventually reappear. After completing your initial treatment series, we recommend a maintenance CoolTouch treatment every 6 to 12 months to keep your skin looking great.
