Do you or someone you know suffer from acne scars? If so, you have come to the right place. Here At Enriched Aesthetics, we understand these struggles, and now, thanks to the DEKA CoolPeel CO2 technology we have an effective acne scar treatment. CoolPeel™ is a new way to deliver the benefits of traditional CO2 resurfacing treatments, which are proven safer and more comfortable. This advanced technology can reduce the appearance of fine lines, sun damage, as well as improve skin texture with minimal social downtime.
What Is Coolpeel?
CoolPeel is a unique CO2 laser system that is unlike any other laser of its kind. This unique system can be fully customized to meet the needs of your skin, targeting the superficial layer of skin thereby removing damaged skin, either from sun exposure or scars, left over from acne breakouts, revealing younger and healthier skin.
What Makes Coolpeel™ Different?
The traditional CO2 laser resurfacing treatments are often accompanied by considerable downtime and risk while damaged skin heals. Many advances have been made to improve the side effects of CO2 treatments but only the CoolPeel can deliver a fractional ablative treatment without the downtime. There is minimal risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation or induced infection.
Why Is Coolpeel An Effective Acne Scar Treatment?
CO2 lasers have historically been the gold standard for treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scars and various other blemishes while tightening, toning, and improving skin texture. Damaged skin from acne scars, for example, is removed by the laser. The heat delivered by the laser stimulates collagen production revealing improved skin quality.
With the many advances to improve side effects of CO2 laser treatment, only the coolpeel can deliver a fully ablative treatment without the extensive social downtime.
How does Coolpeel™ work?
A Coolpeel™ laser resurfacing treatment can only be done using the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser. Only Tetra can control its output to deliver high energy in extremely short pulses to deliver impressive superficial, skin resurfacing results without the lingering heat that would traditionally damage the surrounding skin.
How Many Sessions Will You Need?
This gentle laser system is powerful enough to significantly reduce the appearance of acne scars in only a few sessions. Most benefit from three treatments, spaced four weeks apart.
Acne scars are personal to everyone and treatment sessions, as well as results, will vary based on severity. Which is why the providers at Enriched Aesthetics take your consultation seriously and will spend time formulating the treatment plan that is best for you.
Considerations Before and After Acne Scar Treatment?
Well hydrated skin is the ideal condition for all laser treatments. Your provider will discuss with you how to prepare your skin leading up to your treatments.
It is recommended to temporarily stop using chemical exfoliants (salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and retinol) at least one week before your appointment. Avoiding direct sunlight, tanning beds, and self-tanning products is also advised.
A skin assessment will be performed by your provider prior to treatment to rule out any suspicious skin lesions, abnormal moles, or skin conditions. If you have a compromised immune system this should also be mentioned during your consultation, such as insulin-dependent diabetes (IDDM) or any flare-up related to chronic auto-immune disorders.
A skin assessment will be performed by your provider prior to treatment, all areas with a Tattoo will be avoided.
The recovery time after a Coolpeel treatment is minimal. You may expect mild redness, similar to a sunburn, for approximately 1-2 days though nothing which will prevent return to normal activities. Your skin may feel dry and scaly during the healing process, all normal outcomes, though another reason to remain hydrated.
When Will You See Results?
The results of this laser acne scar treatment will appear gradually, over the next 4-6 weeks. Skin rejuvenation will continue to develop over the next 3-6 months. Additional treatments may be repeated after one month until patient goals are achieved.
How Long Do Results Last?
The results of this treatment can be satisfyingly long-term. Maintaining your skin during and after your recovery is key and your provider will guide you along the way. As far as overall anti-aging correction, such as toning and tightening the skin, like anything else, you must “protect your investment” and follow up for maintenance care. At Enriched Aesthetics we care about your outcomes, talk to your provider today for the most optimal treatment plan that’s right for you.
How Can You Maintain Results?
The best way to maintain your results has a lot to do with how you care for your skin post treatment. It’s important to keep your skin clean and moisturized during the first 24 to 48 hours after your treatment, as well as avoid certain skincare products, such as retinol and direct exposure to the sun.
For acne scar concerns, another way to maintain results is to manage acne breakouts. This is often easier said than done, though not impossible, If unsure which products are best, please speak with one of our skincare experts.
