Unlike other skin resurfacing techniques, CoolTouch does not use harsh chemical or abrasive laser peeling that may irritate the skin and call for intense after care. CoolTouch is a revolutionary patented technology that uses a cool cryogen spray to protect the surface layers of skin, while its unique laser energy penetrates deep into the dermis to stimulate and promote new, healthy collagen growth.
CoolTouch can be performed on any facial area. It is most beneficial on areas where wrinkles have begun to appear because collagen has become less elastic over time, such as the eyes, mouth and cheeks.
CoolTouch patients express little to no discomfort while the procedure is being performed. If a patient's skin is extra sensitive, a topical anesthetic cream may be used.
No. CoolTouch treatments are virtually painless and typically last 15-30 minutes. There is no redness and no down time. The treatment is so mild, that many patients have the treatment on their lunch hour, reapply their makeup and immediately resume their daily activities!
The CoolTouch treatment can be used as a complement to other procedures. Depending on the needs of the individual, CoolTouch can be combined with Microdermabrasion to improve skin tone.
Because CoolTouch is a stimulate that fosters new collagen and elastin fibers to grow, multiple treatments may be recommended. Dr. Liu will evaluate the area to be treated and discuss a more individual course of treatment with you.
