Nothing is quite beautiful as soft, healthy-looking skin. As we age, sun, wind, time and hormones take their toll and fine lines begin to form around the eyes and month. Deeper line along the brow, and next to the nose and mouth may also, appear. These changes are all due to the breakdown of collagen, the support network of tissue beneath the top layer of skin.
How does Cool Touch Facial Rejuvenation Work?
Some popular methods to counter the effects of aging include lasers, dermabrasion and chemical peels. While these treatments are effective, they often require bandages and extensive recovery. CoolTouch® facial rejuvenation is a revolutionary process that delivers laser energy beneath the top layer of skin, stimulating the production of collagen. New collagen softens the appearance of aging skin.
CoolTouch® facial rejuvenation treatments are delivered by a computer-controlled handpiece that protects the surrounding tissue and outer layer of skin. This handpiece applies a unique protective cooling spray to the skin just before that laser energy is released. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis without anesthesia.
Am I Good Candidate for Cool Touch Facial rejuvenation?
CoolTouch® works well on depressed and raised scars, lines and discoloration. Patients with dark skin tones who are not good candidates for laser resurfacing can be safely treated with CoolTouch®. Your physician will review your medical history, age, skin type, pigmentation, and consider your desired result to determine the best course of treatment for you.
What Can I Expect After Cool Touch Facial Rejuvenation?
Because CoolTouch® Facial Rejuvenation is a non-invasive outpatient procedure, no recovery time or bandages are required. Typically, patients undergo multiple treatments every 4-6 weeks to achieve the desired result, followed by treatments every 8-12 weeks for maintenance. Most see marked results by the third treatment.
