What is CoolTouch Laser?
Laser treatments result in a gradual improvement in acne, scarring, oily skin, and large pores, as well as fine wrinkling, and multiple treatments are required for the best results. for the most severe scarring, a combination approach with topical medications, microneedling of scars, and filling scars with PCP or dermal fillers may give you even quicker and better results.
How it Works
CoolTouch protects your outer skin and sensitive nerve endings with a unique cooling spray. Precise laser pulses target water around your collagen bundles, which stimulates cells called fibroblasts that produce the natural collagen that is the foundarion of your skin, and the sebaceous glands, which reduces the production of the oily sebum that is a main contributor to acne. the device monitors your skin temperature continuously, so that the operator knows that the ideal temperature for the best results has been attained.
As the collagen layer thickens, skin tone and elasticity improve, the skin becomes less oily, pores become smaller, and acne scars become less noticable. This treatment is designed to combat acne with minimal discomfort and without the need for a prolonged recovery period. There is no interruption of your normal activities.
