Festoon Update

· Lasers · Comments Off on Festoon Update

Earlier I posted a video of the CO2 CoolPeel laser treatment to reduce the festoons under my eyes.  Now with these photos, you see what I looked like pre and post-procedure.

Festoons appear below the “eye bags” as a mound or bump around the cheekbones.  Or, a festoon could be sagging skin or folds of skin above the cheek.

I was red immediately after the laser treatment, but the CoolPeel has less downtime and less redness than older technology CO2 lasers.  The CoolPeel’s new technology delivers energy more precisely, without a lot of thermal damage to the skin, so recovery is faster.

The laser can be set to mild, moderate or aggressive and the downtime increases with the intensity of the treatment.

The treatment I had was moderate and addresses fine lines, superficial wrinkles, dark circles and festoons.  The cost for this treatment under the eyes is $850.  The downtime is 3 to 5 days.  You can begin wearing makeup in 2 to 3 days.

Laser resurfacing with a CO2 laser encourages the skin’s natural healing process and revitalizes the area by creating better support in the skin.  It also tightens the skin by “shrinking” tissue.

My CoolPeel CO2 laser can be customized to your unique needs — it is powerful, fast and gives fabulous results.  After your treatment, your skin will look smoother, tighter, fresher and more youthful.

CoolPeel CO2 Laser Reduces Festoons

· Lasers · Comments Off on CoolPeel CO2 Laser Reduces Festoons

Do you have festoons?  I do.  They are below the “eye bags,” a swollen area appearing as a mound or bump around the cheekbones.  Or, a festoon could be sagging skin or folds of skin above the cheek.  Festoons can be genetic and often get worse with aging, sun exposure, or smoking.

The puffiness under the eyes gets worse with age because the structural support of the skin is deteriorating and the muscles under the eyes weaken.  Lower eyelid surgery can sometimes improve the appearance, but it also can make the festoon look more prominent.

Laser resurfacing with a CO2 laser can encourage the skin’s natural healing process and revitalize the area by creating better support in the skin.

The laser you see in the video is the next generation of CO2 that has less downtime and less redness.  It has power and delivery that is unmatched in any other fractional carbon dioxide laser.  The CoolPeel CO2 uses carbon dioxide technology to deliver energy precisely, without a lot of thermal damage to the skin, thus a faster recovery.  It can be used for fine lines and to improve skin texture and pigment.  It also tightens the skin by “shrinking” tissue.

The laser can be set to mild, moderate or aggressive and the downtime increases with the intensity of the treatment.  The treatment in the video was moderate and will address fine lines, superficial wrinkles, dark circles and festoons.  The cost for this treatment under the eyes is $850 and full face is $1000.  The downtime is 3 to 5 days.

A mild treatment of the full face and neck to improve pigment, sun damage and texture is $850.  The downtime for a mild treatment is about 2 days.

An aggressive CoolPeel carbon dioxide laser ablation to treat skin laxity, acne scars, deep lines and wrinkles is $2000.  The downtime is 5 days.

My CoolPeel CO2 laser can be customized to your unique needs — it is powerful fast and gives fabulous results.  After your treatment, your skin will look smoother, tighter, fresher and more youthful.

Reveal Younger-Looking Skin!

Many of you know our friendly nurse, Franny.  She recently had a CO2 CoolPeel treatment that significantly reduced the wrinkles on her face and neck.

The CoolPeel laser helps with stubborn crows feet, lipstick lines, smile lines and pore size.  Most notably, CO2 improves wrinkles that cannot be corrected with fillers.

Franny was also one of the first to receive an Infini treatment, which does a great job of tightening skin.  Genius is the next generation of Infini.  Genius is an improved microneedling treatment with radio frequency.  It addresses sagging, crepey skin, turkey neck, jowls and large pores.  We upgraded to the Genius device last year.

If you have wrinkles along with loose, lax skin, this duo of treatments might do the trick.  Franny has had one CoolPeel and had 2 Infini treatments a couple of years ago.

When you’re in the office, feel free to ask Franny about her treatments and see her results in person!

Mylene just had her first CO2 CoolPeel laser treatment.  Here’s what she had to say:

“The large pores on my nose look so much better after just one treatment!  My acne scars are less noticeable and my skin is overall refreshed for the holidays.  My skin looks amazing!”

The newest CO2 laser, “CoolPeel” is here!

· Lasers · Comments Off on The newest CO2 laser, “CoolPeel” is here!

So many of my patients have years of sun damage with fine lines that cannot be corrected with fillers.

I’ve just added the newest CO2 laser, “CoolPeel,” so I can help you with stubborn crows feet, lipstick lines, smile lines and pore size.

To improve texture, fine lines and pore size, nothing beats a CO2 laser. But the aggressive, ablative (removal of skin) treatment required several weeks of downtime with red, raw oozing skin.

New fractional CO2 lasers changed all that.

Our new, CoolPeel CO2 fractional laser treatment produces skin resurfacing results without the lingering heat that damages surrounding skin. Unlike regular CO2, the CoolPeel has minimal risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation or infection caused by the procedure.

CoolPeel tightens fine lines, reduces sun damage, minimizes pores and improves skin texture with significantly less downtime than regular CO2.
