Coolaser Laser Resurfacing from Dr. Simon Ourian Treats Acne Scars

No acne scar!BEVERLY HILLS, CA, October 22, 2010 — Patients with severe acne scars often resort to multiple treatments, but seeing only minimal results, start to suffer from a low self-image. Coolaser Laser Resurfacing, a technique developed by Dr. Simon Ourian of Epione Medical Corporation in Beverly Hills, is a highly effective treatment used by many individuals to restore clear skin and eliminate unsightly acne scars.

Dr. Ourian’s Coolaser technology is a highly individualized process, with a treatment regime customized for each patient. “Facial acne scars affect everybody differently, ” said Dr. Ourian, medical director at Epione Medical. “That’s why over-the-counter treatments often don’t measure up. A big part of our procedure is taking into account your own situation, and deciding what’s best for you. I developed the Coolaser technique to achieve positive, long-lasting results, leaving you with clear, smooth skin.”

Coolaser decreases the level of comfort patients experience by means of cooling the skin throughout the course of the treatment. Light pulses are projected onto the affected skin surface, and when the skin absorbs that light energy, the blemishes vaporize, one microscopic layer at a time. This approach allows the physician to retain precise control over treatment. The cooling makes the procedure much more comfortable than other types of laser treatments and microdermabrasion, and there is typically no long recovery period required.

When necessary, Dr. Ourian will augment the Coolaser treatment with dermal filler injections. Coolaser in effect “sands down” the surface of the skin and injectable products such as Radiesse, Juvéderm and Restylane literally plump up the depressions in the skin caused by acne scars.

Dr. Ourian’s Coolaser acne scar treatment has provided welcome relief to many patients, who not only appreciate the highly effective treatment, but also the excellent service and accommodating staff. “I love coming to Epione. I feel like I’m at a five star hotel! Everyone has a smile on their face and I love that, ” said one of Dr. Ourian’s patients. Another related, “Since I don’t live in L.A., I really appreciate Epione, and it’s always a relief to leave L.A. looking younger.”

Patients with all skin types and skin tones can benefit from the Coolaser treatment. Patients enjoy the spa-like atmosphere of the Epione Medical Center, and most patients report that the Coolaser procedure is relatively pain-free. The treatment is designed to be very precise, and targeted only at the affected areas—and the results are dramatic, with many patients reporting results beyond their expectations.

Nearly 90 percent of teens and young adults experience acne, and in severe cases, scarring often occurs. In response, a number of acne scar removal products and treatments have been introduced in the marketplace, all with varying results. Epione’s Coolaser Laser Resurfacing has become the ‘treatment of choice’ for many men and women in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and surrounding areas due to the significant results the treatment has produced.

Coolaser Laser Resurfacing, the newest innovation in acne scar removal, sculpts and smooths damaged skin without surgery, anesthesia or Accutane. During the hour-long treatment, the patient’s skin is numbed using a topical cream and a beam of light is used to remove the outmost layer of the skin. The extent of improvement that can be expected is based on the type and extent of the scarring, and results are generally long lasting.

Patients who have received the Coolaser treatment to combat acne scars have been overwhelmingly pleased with their results. “My acne scars are looking better and better, “ said one patient. “The Coolaser is the only thing that has worked for me. I am very happy.” Other patients remarked that they would “recommend the treatment to anyone who is considering acne scar removal, “ and that the “treatment has done everything it promised to do.”

“I had tried everything, from over the counter remedies to camouflage make-up to Retina-A, to punch grafting and dermabrasions, “ said Jennifer, a 32 year-old patient who underwent Coolaser Laser Resurfacing. “Frankly, I had given up hope. I cried when I first touched my smooth skin after my first laser resurfacing; so did my mom.”

In addition to Coolaser treatments, dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane or Radiesse are commonly used in cases of deep scarring. During the initial consultation and examination of the patient’s skin, the proper course of treatment—Coolaser or dermal fillers—will be determined.

“It can often be devastating to realize that once your acne has cleared, you’re left with depressed or raised scars or skin discolorations, “ said Dr. Ourian. “But for men and women who are self-conscious about their acne and acne scars, it’s important to remember that this isn’t something they have to live with. Schedule a consultation with us and let’s find a tailored solution so that you can regain confidence and put your best face forward.”
