Part of the natural aging process is the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. This is what causes fine lines and wrinkles to form on the skin. Instead of turning to a plastic surgeon for an invasive surgical procedure to tighten the skin, many patients who visit Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics of Williamsville, NY, will often find alternative, noninvasive treatments to provide results in cases where mild to moderate skin laxity have developed. This includes the Coolifting® treatment.
What is the Coolifting® procedure like?
The Coolifting® procedure is very simple and only takes a few minutes. First, the area to be treated is cleansed with a special solution. Next, the Coolifting® device is positioned over the area, and a numbing cream is applied. Once the area is numb, the Coolifting® device is activated and delivers a stream of cold CO2 gas to the skin. Afterward, a soothing serum is applied to the treated area to help reduce any discomfort or redness.
How does the Coolifting® treatment work to improve the skin?
The Coolifting® treatment works by delivering a stream of cold CO2 gas to the skin. This gas helps to stimulate collagen production and increase blood circulation. The skin becomes more hydrated and is firmed with the cool CO2 mist. The result is smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.
How many treatment sessions do I require to get my desired changes?
The number of treatment sessions you need will depend on your individual goals and skin condition. Typically, a series of four to six treatments are recommended for optimal results. However, you may see some improvement after just one treatment.
What are the side effects of Coolifting®?
There are minimal side effects associated with Coolifting®. Some people may experience temporary redness or swelling in the treated area, but this typically goes away within a few hours. There is no downtime needed after treatment, allowing you to resume your normal activities immediately.
