About CoolTouch CT3 Plus
What is CoolTouch CT3 Plus?
The CoolTouch CT3 Plus laser treatment,
known as CoolBreeze™, is the “gold standard”
of care for wrinkle reduction, acne and acne
scarring. The laser’s heat gently stimulates
the 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.
Results are achieved from the inside out! As
new collagen is produced, your skin begins
to look softer and younger.
What improvement will I see for
Patients have a high degree of satisfaction
with their results. Many report an
improvement in both skin tone and texture
and describe how fine and deeper lines
become less visible and begin to disappear.
Improvement is achieved with a series of
treatments resulting in collagen
What improvement will I see for Acne
You will notice significant reduction of
acne and improvised appearance of acne
scars. Unlike other acne therapies that
address bacterial symptoms only, the
CoolBreeze laser treatment targets the
source of the acne. The laser energy is
applied in gentle pulses over the treatment
area. The energy penetrates deep enough to
shrink oil glands and decrease their
capacity to produce acne without affecting
the oils necessary for healthy skin. Your
body also rebuilds and replenishes your own
natural collagen to fill in acne scars.
How many treatments are recommended?
The average number of treatments is 3 to 5
performed over a period of 2 to 4 months.
During your consultation you will be advised
as to the number of treatments recommended
to achieve your desired results. Occasional
touch-up treatments may be suggested to
maintain or continue your improvements.
What does a treatment feel like?
CoolTouch CT3 Plus laser treatments are
quick and easy, and typically take less than
an hour. Patients typically feel a warm
sensation and see a blush or redness in the
treated area for an hour or so following the
treatment. Best of all, with no downtime
after treatment, you can apply make-up and
resume your regular activities immediately.

micro-perforations. This is a 100% natural

What is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent Makeup, also referred to as
micro-pigmentation, is a process where
completely natural pigments are implanted
beneath the top layer of skin, into the
second layer of skin. This technique has
been medically developed and uses pigments
specially formulated for cosmetic
application. Not to be compared with
traditional tattooing, in which permanent
skin dyes and inks are placed into the skin.

for the initial visit is as follows:
1 + hours for eyeliner, 1-2 hours for eyebrows.

What procedures are offered?
The most common areas are:
lip liner, eye liner, eye shadow, eyebrows,
and areola tattooing.
Is Permanent Makeup truly permanent?
A variety of factors influence the longevity
of Permanent Makeup. Ultra-violet exposure
from sun or tanning booths, various drugs,
excessively dry skin, and smoking are all
factors that may affect this. Alpha- hydroxy,
Retin-A, and glycolic acid must be kept away
from treated areas. These kinds of
substances slough away top layers of the
skin and eventually the layer that the
pigment has been implanted into. Use of
these kinds of substances will require
additional maintenance in years to come. Sun
block on eyebrows and sunglasses for
eyeliner will greatly prolong the effective
life of these procedures.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is deposits of fat and other
material trapped in pockets of connective
tissue beneath the skin. It causes
progressive dimpling, also called “orange
peel” or “cottage cheese” appearance of the
skin. About 90% of women are affected by it,
after they reach puberty.
Why are women prone to develop cellulite?
Women’s skin is built differently than men’s
to help them to store fat during pregnancy
and breast feeding and also to allow the
skin to expand during these times. When
estrogen levels fluctuate in the body, the
skin will retain fluid, connective tissue in
the skin hardens, blood and lymphatic
circulation is decreased, and fat cell
storage is favored, causing the development

What is an Endermologie Facial?
Facial Endermologie, from LPG, offers a
natural facial workout, helping achieve
facial fitness by mechanically stimulating

structure. The treatment gives the
underlying foundation of connective tissue
under the skin a workout. Endermologie
addresses the visible signs of ageing that

problems by mobilizing the connective tissue

radiance of the skin. This treatment is not
included in Full Body Endermologie
