How to achieve maximum results with a skin resurfacing treatment.

 

Laser rejuvenation and resurfacing is popular for many reasons. It offers a solution to wrinkles, fine lines, post-traumatic scars, acne scars, sun spots, freckles and/or aging and damaged skin. Many lasers perform best when completed in a series.  However, if you are looking for results in a single treatment, the ActiveFX Laser by Lumenis® is the laser for you.  ActiveFX fractional laser can improve a wide range of skin conditions while refreshing the overall appearance of the skin.

 

Every patient’s skin is different, which is why a consultation is so important. It provides the opportunity to assess the patient’s condition and do a thorough evaluation of the skin. . This laser uses a high-energy beam of light that causes the skin’s upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of healthy new skin.  This achieves a dramatic effect; however, it does require approximately five days of downtime, as your skin will have associated redness and peeling.  You will see a reduction of wrinkles and fine lines as well as a softening of deeper lines. You will also see improved skin tone and texture and immediate contraction of the skin with reduction in pore size. Additionally it stimulates new collagen, you will see plumping of the skin up to six months after the procedure!

What are CoolTouch treatments and who gets them?

Recently over lunch with friends, the discussion turned to several anti-aging options that help recapture a youthful appearance and lift a sagging neckline. Besides a quality skincare line which is a must at any age – a simple answer, CoolTouch CT3 Plus treatments. For those men and women who are seeking a non-invasive anti-aging treatment to improve their skin and appearance, laser rejuvenation treatments are something they may want to seriously consider.

The CoolTouch laser treatment, known as CoolBreeze™, is the “gold standard” of care for wrinkle reduction, acne and acne scarring. This laser treatment targets the layers of skin where collagen is formed and diminishes the appearance of many age-related skin concerns including wrinkles, lines, acne scars, and accomplishes this without injury to the skin’s surface. Best of all, with no downtime after treatment, you can resume regular activities immediately after the procedure.

CoolBreeze treatments are completely non-invasive, as the laser light passes harmlessly through the upper layers of the skin to heat and stimulate the cells deep below the surface that produce natural collagen which adds firmness, and elasticity to the skin. The collagen and elastin fibers continue to multiply after your treatment, and you will continue to see collagen stimulation for several months. The CoolBreeze laser treatment can be performed on any facial area – around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, and chin, as well as the neck & decollete.

It is easy to see why there is such a Buzz about CoolTouch CT3 Plus laser treatments – the amazing results speak for themselves and can be life changing. A consultation will help determine your skin’s needs. This treatment can be safely used in conjunction with Dermaplane, Microderm, Chemical Peels, Botox, and Fillers to maximize patients overall results.
