By targeting the source of teen acne and adult acne, the Cool Touch Laser Acne Treatment delivers energy deep enough into the dermis to shrink oil glands, thus reducing the glands capacity to produce acne without affecting the beneficial oils necessary to maintain healthy skin. Not only does the Cool Touch Laser Acne Treatment reduce the production of acne causing oils, but it also improves the appearance of acne scarring by plumping the skin with new collagen production.
Cool Touch Laser Treatment
During a Cool Touch Laser Treatment for teen acne and adult acne, the skin is conditioned with a topical anesthetic to help offset any discomfort that may be felt while the laser energy is applied to the skin through a series of gentle pulses. In addition to the topical anesthetic, soothing cool air is applied during the Cool Touch Acne Treatment for enhanced comfort.
Without damaging the surface of the skin, the pulsating laser energy is absorbed by the dermal layer, reducing the size of oil glands and stimulating skin’s natural repair mechanisms to building new collagen -- reducing the appearance of acne scars.
Most people feel a series of warm sensations and may see a flushing of the skin for a short period of time following a Cool Touch Acne Treatment. Afterwards, makeup can be applied and normal activities resumed.
