What is CoolTouch Laser Skin Rejuvenation?

The CoolTouch skin treatment is a revolutionary way to combat the signs of aging and acne scarring. This noninvasive procedure stimulates smoother, healthier looking skin. By using an infrared laser together with a cooling process, your skin rejuvenates from the inside out. There are no harsh chemicals or long recovery times; just younger looking skin.

CoolTouch is an innovative approach to skin rejuvenation. It combines a cooling cryogen spray and a YAG laser to give you optimal results with the least inconvenience. The protective cooling spray is applied to the skin, allowing the CoolTouch laser light to pass harmlessly through the upper layers of your skin to stimulate the cells deep below the surface that produce natural collagen. The collagen and elastin fibers continue to multiply after your treatment and you will continue to see improved results over the months ahead.

What are the potential benefits of this treatment?

The most obvious benefit is a simple relatively painless treatment for younger-looking skin. The CoolTouch laser treatment can be performed on any facial areas – around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, chin and the neck – with minimal discomfort. A topical anesthetic cream can be used on extra sensitive areas, so no injections are needed.

It should be noted that fine lines, wrinkles and acne scarring reduction is cosmetic in nature and poses no medical threat. They will be treated as cosmetic conditions. Other benefits include: immediate recovery with virtually no post-op care, and gradual, perceptible improvement over time.

How long does a treatment take and how many treatments are necessary?

The CoolTouch treatment is so quick and easy, many patients come in for treatment during their lunch hour. The treatment takes between 15 and 30 minutes, and there are virtually no side effects. You can reapply your make-up right away and carry on with your day. No one will ever know. Clinical studies suggest that an average of three treatments is needed to stimulate new collagen growth. We also recommend regular touch up treatments to sustain the continued growth of new collagen.

How is it different than other anti-aging treatments?

The CoolTouch laser treatment is unlike any other skin resurfacing treatment. Your skin is not subjected to harsh chemicals or the intense after-care of CO2 and Erbium lasers. Cool Touch laser protects the sensitive surface layers of your skin, allowing the laser light to penetrate to a deeper level and stimulate new collagen growth.
