CoolTouch Laser Treatments for Acne

CoolTouch® laser treatments reduce acne and acne scarring for all skin types. Unlike other therapies that address bacterial symptoms only, CoolTouch®  targets the source of acne, overactive sebaceous glands. During a CoolTouch®  treatment energy is applied in gentle pulses over the treatment area. The energy penetrates deep enough to shrink oil glands and decrease their capability to produce acne without affecting the oils necessary for healthy skin. The laser’s heat also gently stimulates the dermal tissue, which triggers a repair mechanism, and your body begins to rebuild and replenish your own natural collagen without injury to the skin’s surface. As new collagen is produced, acne scars begin to disappear and your skin begins to look and feel softer and smoother.
 


FAQ

  • What does a treatment feel like?
    • CoolTouch® treatments can be performed on any area of the skin. The laser energy feels warm to the skin, almost tingling. Depending on the severity of your condition, your physician may decide to use a CoolTouch®  patented cooling mist for comfort.
       
  • How long does a treatment take?
    • Treatments take 10-30 minutes, depending on the area to be treated and the severity of the condition.
       
  • How will you look after treatment?
    • You may experience mild redness in the treated area for a short period of time following the procedure. There’s no downtime, so you can resume regular activities immediately after the treatment – and even apply make-up, if desired.
       
  • How many treatments will you need?
    • Typically, it takes more than one treatment to achieve the optimum level of improvement. On average, patients receive 3-6 treatments to prolong improvements.
       
  • I have darker skin, is the CoolTouch®  laser treatment right for me?
    • Unlike some lasers whose wavelengths aren’t appropriate for darker skin, the CoolTouch®  laser uses a 1320 nanometer wavelength which targets water in the skin, not melanin. This means the laser will safely treat any skin color without causing pigmentary or color changes to your natural skin tone.
