Cooltouch Treatment

CoolTouch

Acne is a persistent inflammatory skin condition that results from pores in the skin becoming clogged with debris, oil, and dead skin cells. Pores that are impacted in such a way give bacteria, which live naturally on the skin, the ideal environment in which they thrive. The result of bacteria in clogged pores is swelling and inflammation. Sometimes, pores can become infected, as well. If, as a result of inflammation, an affected follicle ruptures, or if blemishes are scratched, picked, and squeezed, discoloration and scarring may occur.

Dr. Mary Lupo is an experienced dermatologist who has been helping patients from New Orleans and surrounding areas for many years. At the Lupo Center, we offer various treatment options to address the problem of acne because we understand that each patient is different.

A laser treatment that we use for the elimination of acne and acne scars is the CoolTouch laser. This device applies gentle pulses of light energy over affected skin. This energy is absorbed in the deeper layers of skin, resulting in the shrinkage of oil glands, which decreases their ability to produce acne. The absorption of light energy by the glands, however, does not diminish the production of oil necessary for healthy skin.

The heat from the CoolTouch laser also sends gentle stimulation to the dermal tissue. This triggers a natural repair mechanism in which the body’s own natural collagen is replenished. Collagen is a substance produced by the body to heal wounds. With this stimulated production of collagen, blemishes and acne scars gradually disappear, leaving the skin smoother and softer.

CoolTouch laser treatments are suitable for all skin types. The energy delivered is fast acting and long lasting, with treatment taking only a few minutes in our state-of-the art dermatology practice. Following CoolTouch treatment, our patients are able to immediately return to their regular day.

We understand the immense impact that comes from chronic acne. If over-the-counter remedies have not produced the desired effect after four to six weeks, blemishes may be best treated by a board certified dermatologist. The Lupo Center offers gentle, effective treatment that alleviates the physical and emotional impact of acne. Contact us today for your consultation with Dr. Mary Lupo.
