The Cool Laser is a treatment that removes and decreases the appearance of acne scarring or wrinkles. It also improves the overall color and skin texture of the face, neck, and hands. The Cool Laser, based on its name, is much less painful than traditional laser techniques. It’s usually performed under local anesthesia and has a faster recovery time.
How It Works
Your skin cells will absorb the laser light. The absorption will destroy the cells and remove the tissues. Damaged skin is removed, and new skin grows quickly in its place. The pain level for this procedure is minimal, and it varies from person to person. However, the local anesthesia and cool air significantly reduces discomfort.
The healing process is quick—usually takes 2-3 days. The dermatologist will prescribe a detailed skin care instructions plan for you depending on your skin type. Of course, you must protect your skin from the sun and bacteria. There are very little complications with this treatment, but there is always a small risk of infection or temporary pigmentation changes.
Please visit your local dermatologist for a detailed consultation of the Cool Laser treatment.
