If you suffer from an excess of fine vellus hair (more commonly referred to as peach fuzz) along with rough, dry or wrinkled skin, dermaplaning may be right for your needs. During the procedure, a scalpel is expertly used to gently exfoliate the skin, removing excess dirt, dead skin cells and build-up that blocks the pores. The result is a more glowing, resilient complexion that radiates youthfulness and vitality. Dermaplaning can be combined with other skincare treatments as well, such as a chemical peel or hyperpigmentation therapy.
Skin that suffers from blackheads and poor texture can be the perfect candidate for microdermabrasion. This procedure is performed with a coarse diamond-tipped wand that applies gentle suction to strip the outer layer of impurities from the skin. Microdermabrasion can be performed on its own, or in tandem with a chemical peel or signature facial for comprehensive results. The outcome is a complexion that is softer to the touch and is free from toxic build-up and unsightly blemishes.
As we age, the skin becomes naturally depleted of its collagen and elastin, two proteins that are responsible for the complexion’s youthful glow and skin suppleness. LED light therapy works to regenerate collagen and elastin, improving the skin’s resilience while increasing lymphatic drainage and eradicating inflammation. During the process, a variety of light wavelengths are employed to stimulate the body’s photo-biochemical healing.
With Biosonix ultrasound, the skin is hydrated, oxygenated, toned and nourished, creating a rejuvenated complexion that is radiant and beautiful. Ultrasound waves are applied to the skin’s top layers, stimulating blood flow while minimizing wrinkles, fine lines and hyperpigmentation. Biosonix ultrasound can be used in combination with LED light therapy to replenish lost stores of collagen and elastin, and to increase the skin’s susceptibility to nutrients found in serums.
With oxygen therapy, the skin is toned, tightened, rejuvenated and revived, creating a more youthful and vibrant countenance. Oxygen therapy is ideally used after surgery or laser treatment, and as part of an acne removal regimen. It can work to reduce scarring from burns and other blemishes, and can soothe the skin after ablative procedures. Elasticity is improved, while the skin’s texture is also renewed.
This personalized Coolspa special is uniquely designed to target your skin’s greatest challenges and to reverse the telltale signs of aging. Your signature facial may include a variety of modalities, such as oxygen therapy, microcurrent, deep pore extraction, chemical peel, dermaplaning, ultrasound therapy and more! Your skin will thank you!
If you suffer from hyperpigmentation, undue redness or vascular irregularities, our treatments can help. We combine the power of two highly precise lasers to treat sun spots, age spots, rosacea, discoloration, and many other blemishes including acne scarring. The applicator applies cooling air to the skin as it works, ensuring your comfort and minimizing side effects. You may also receive a topical anesthetic if needed. Results are usually seen within just days.
With Laser Genesis treatment, a handheld applicator applies gentle micro pulses of potent laser energy to reduce the signs of aging and stimulate the skin’s suppleness and smoothness. Collagen is boosted while wrinkles, fine lines, red and brown spots and facial redness are all reduced. Laser Genesis usually requires a series of 4-6 treatments to see comprehensive changes in the complexion.
Forma is a gentle painless treatment that employs the effective technology of radiofrequency to improve the skin’s tone, texture and overall appearance. Depleted stores of collagen are replenished, while the skin’s surface is tightened for a more youthful aesthetic. With Forma, crow’s feet, eye folds, smiles lines, wrinkles and crepe-like skin is all treated and improved with excellent outcomes.
This revolutionary treatment works to reduce the signs of cellulite, dimpled skin patches, loss of skin elasticity, and excess fat deposits around the thighs, hips, waist, abdomen and buttocks. Body FX is a combination procedure, employing radiofrequency energy, as well as other tissue heating modalities. The result is a more toned, streamlined figure without the poor texture caused by cellulite.
Chemical peels are formulated in three distinct potencies: mild, medium and strong. Each is designed to treat your damaged skin layers and reverse the signs of aging that include wrinkles and fine lines, poor texture and pigmentation issues. Chemical peels can also address acne and acne scarring. The mild peels require virtually no downtime, while the stronger peels can sometimes require a short period of recovery. Our aesthetician will choose the right level of chemical peel potency for your skin during your confidential consultation at our NYC offices. Even more potent chemical peeling is performed in selected cases by our plastic surgeons, with the aid of IV ‘twilight’ anesthesia, as appropriate.
A strategically placed matrix of micro pins, which delivers carefully controlled heating using radiofrequency technology (RF), is used to renew the skin’s vibrancy and stimulate a healthier, glowing complexion. Wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging are minimized, while acne scarring, age spots and poor skin texture are also addressed. Factora can be applied to many different areas, including the eyelids, mouth and nasal areas, the cheeks, the neck, the forehead and the midface. A series of treatments appropriately spaced apart is typically recommended, in order to maximize results. This treatment may be used in combination with dermal fillers for a more dramatic outcome.
Microcurrent mimics the body’s natural electrical impulses, which work to gently contour and contract the facial skin for a more toned, chic aesthetic. Through the process, the skin is revitalized, lymphatic drainage is amplified, and ATP production is increased. Mircocurrent also helps the skin to better absorb nutrients in serums and skincare products.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (or "PRP") is a safe, multi-purpose treatment that provides excellent results for new cell stimulation. It is a concentration of platelet-rich plasma protein that is derived from your own blood, which is then applied to the appropriate site. Due to the high amount of various growth factors found in the plasma, results are proven to show an increase in overall rejuvenation and stimulation of new, healthy cells.
Here at Coolspa, we offer various procedures where PRP Therapy can be implemented. PRP injections can be used for hair restoration, or it can be applied topically to the skin for microneedling and laser treatments.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a procedure designed to resurface the skin and improve overall skin texture. It has been shown to significantly reduce acne scars and is perfect for patients who would prefer non-heat or laser-based treatments.
Like most resurfacing and rejuvenating treatments, microneedling provides the best results when done in multiple sessions. This procedure can also be combined with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, providing an extra boost to your treatment.
Clear + Brilliant is a gentle laser skin care treatment, clinically proven to help fight and prevent the effects of aging skin. This powerful fractional resurfacing procedure improves tone, texture and pore size appearance, but does not impact your social life, as there is essentially no downtime.
During your Clear and Brilliant treatment, your medical aesthetician will examine your skin and discuss the right protocol in order to achieve your skincare goals. While one treatment will provide immediate results, typically multiple sessions are needed in order to maximize overall improvement. The result is younger, fresher looking skin that gives you a beautiful, radiant glow.
