New Coolaser™ Treatment Reduces Acne Scars and Boosts Patients’ Confidence
Epione’s New Coolaser™ Treatment Shows Remarkable Success in Diminishing Acne Scars and Pitting
“Severe acne cases can leave unsightly and embarrassing scars, pitting and skin unevenness that can remain for a lifetime,” said Dr. Simon Ourian, medical director. “While acne scars often vary greatly in shape, type and color, Coolaser™ resurfacing has proved effective in varying cases and has helped patients finally feel good about their skin.”
The Coolaser™ treatment, typically an hour long, uses lasers to remove the outermost layer of the skin. First, the entire face is numbed, using a topical cream. After this is done, a series of light pulses are flashed on the surface of the skin. The skin cells absorb the energy of the light, which causes the instantaneous vaporization of the superficial cells and results in a smoother, clearer and more even skin tone.
Though healing takes 10 to 12 days, a significant percent improvement in the appearance of the scars may be expected, depending on the type and extent of scarring. A single session may not treat the acne scars entirely if they are too deep. These deeper acne scars can be corrected by injections under the skin to fill in or build up the pitted areas. The injections are done with dermal fillers such as Radiesse®, Juvéderm® or Restylane.®
At the initial consultation appointment Dr. Ourian will determine if Coolaser™ resurfacing alone will treat the acne scars, or if a combination of resurfacing and fillers are needed.
