Laser Treatment for Acne & Acne Scarring Reduction Frequently Asked Questions
What does a treatment feel like?
CoolBreeze treatments can be performed on any area of the skin. The laser energy
feels warm to the skin, almost tingling. Depending on the severity of your condition,
your physician may decide to use the CoolTouch patented cooling mist for comfort.
How long does a treatment take?
Treatments take 10-30 minutes, depnding on the area to be treated and the severity
of the condition.
How will you look after the treatment?
You may experience mild redness in the treated area for a short period of time following
the procedure. There’s no downtime, so you can resume regular activities immediately
after the treatment-and even apply makeup, if desired.
What improvement will I see?
You will notice significant reduction of acne and improvised appearance of acne
scars. Results are achieved through a series of treatments, and follow-up visits
may be required to prolong your improvements.
How many treatments will you need?
Typically, it takes more than one treatment to achieve the optimum level of improvement.
On average, patients receive 3-6 treatments at monthly intervals.
I have darker skin, is the CoolTouch laser right for me?
Unlike some lasers who wavelengths aren’t appropriate for darker skin, the
CoolTouch laser uses a 1320 nanometer or mid-infrared light which targets water
in the skin, not melanin. This means the laser will safely treat any skin color
without causing pigmentary or color changes to your natural skin tone.
