The basic theory behind the CoolFrax Laser as a treatment for sun damaged skin is that the laser reaches into the outermost epidermal layer of skin. This results in removing as much of the damaged cells as possible. The “wounds”, or new areas left in place after the removal of the damaged spots leaves areas for new healthy skin to grow back. Results show that the use of the CoolFrax Laser can help trigger the body’s natural healing process. This results in an acceleration of the natural production of collagen.

Patients report that this treatment for sun damaged skin as having a “prickling” sensation. Typically patients experience a sensation much like that of sunburn for about an hour after the treatment, then report that they are much more comfortable. If there is any swelling, it typically goes away within several days. Patients usually find that the treated skin will have a pinkish tone for about a week. This is a very good sign that the skin is healing as it should.

One of the best aspects about a CoolFrax Laser Treatment for Damaged Skin is that it can be performed in the doctor’s office. Patients should understand that after the process their skin will have a bronze appearance that typically lasts anywhere from 3 to 14 days depending on the treatment level. Flaking is a natural side effect of treatment. Your skin will exfoliate as new skin is produced. Typically there is no pain associated with the flaking process. An amazing aspect about skin is that the new epidermal skin will start to develop within as soon as 24 hours!

The body will continue to repair the deeper dermal tissues over the following weeks and months after a treatment. Patients need to realize that this is a procedure that does not offer drastic immediate results. There will be a gradual change until the skin has fully recovered from the initial treatment.
