FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - COOLPEEL Co2 & RF MICRO NEEDLE Skin resurfacing

Are you ready to achieve younger, brighter, and healthier-looking skin?

As the premier hair removal and laser business in Central PA, Jill and Bonnie's Electrolysis and Laser offers a diverse selection of skin treatments that reduce signs of aging and improve your overall complexion. We’ve recently introduced two new treatments, Cool Peel CO2 laser, and Genius RF Microneedling, and we’re excited about what they have in store for our clients.

We encourage our clients to do the combination of both treatments, in one sitting, to achieve the ultimate results!


ACHIEVE YOUR BEST SKIN WITH GENIUS RF & COOL PEEL....TOGETHER!

Genius RF micro-needling and Cool Peel laser skin resurfacing are transforming the way we address the effects of aging on the skin. But did you know that RF and Cool Peel can work in unison to intensify results AND create a more gorgeous, youthful glow? 

Whether you’re interested in these treatments separately or making them both a part of your skin regimen plan, we invite you to schedule a consultation at Jill and Bonnie's Electrolysis and Laser. We look forward to educating our clients on the rejuvenating powers of both Genius RF and Cool Peel ‒ and we look forward to seeing the results work wonders for all skin types!

Though adding the Cool Peel to the Genius RF procedure will yield better results, it will require a bit more healing than with just the Genius RF. Your skin will feel tight and maybe even swell a bit initially, but no worries, this will subside in up to 3 days. Expect a feeling of dryness and possibly some peeling within 3-5 days after the procedures. Everyone’s skin responds a bit different, but the good news is that you can wear mineral based makeup just a few days after the procedure to cover redness and evidence of the procedure. Other than dryness, redness and a bit of swelling, there is no social downtime to speak of. You can expect amazing results and glowing skin within less than 2 weeks after the procedures on average. Optimal results will be seen in 3-6 months.

Clients tell us that random people ask them about their skin, and tell them that it looks amazing. Uneven skin tone will be much improved after as little as one treatment. This treatment combo will help to keep breakouts at bay, reduce fine lines, minimize pores, tighten skin, and assure a more plump and refreshed look. 3 treatments spaced out 4-6 weeks apart are the recommendations for patients with average skin looking for long-lasting results. If you are seeking treatment for scars on the body or face, acne scars, enlarged pores, deep wrinkles, dark spots, and/or sun damage, our team may recommend 4-6 treatments versus 3. Growth Factor Serums can be added to your post treatment regimen to enhance results.

COOL PEEL CO2 LASER


Wish you could shed years off your skin and radiate with a youthful glow? Cool Peel is a new, non-invasive CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment that is helping clients take control over age spots, sun damage, acne scars, loose skin, and the effects of aging.


What makes Cool Peel so innovative? Let’s take a closer look!

What is Cool Peel CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing?

While a typical CO2 laser treatment results in heat damage to surrounding tissues, Cool Peel gets its name because it does not deliver thermal damage. Rather, it delivers laser energy in short pulses that keep you comfortable while still delivering impressive skin resurfacing results. You may see a difference up to 4-5 months after the treatments.


CO2 lasers are used to treat wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes as well as tighten skin and balanced tone.  Damaged skin tissue is removed, or ablated, stimulating new collagen production, and heat energy is delivered to tighten the skin.  ​​​

Am I an ideal candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing is a highly effective way to reduce the presence of mild to moderate signs of facial aging, without having to undergo an invasive surgical procedure. 

Does Cool Peel Work on All Skin Types?
Cool Peel is most effective on skin affected by sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.
Laser skin resurfacing treatment can potentially cause discoloration on darker skin types. There are other treatments that are more effective with your skin type (RF Micro Needling) and can help you achieve a younger and healthier complexion. Cool Peel is appropriate for lighter skin types and mild signs of aging and imperfections.


You’re likely a great candidate for laser resurfacing if you’re looking to address the following conditions:

Fine lines
Wrinkles
Sun damage
Acne scarring
Hyperpigmentation
Rough texture
Blemishes


How does the procedure work?

This procedure encourages your body to respond by naturally producing more collagen and elastin. This results in new, healthy layers of skin that retain more moisture, resulting in an overall brighter complexion. The average treatment time is approximately 30-40 minutes. 


What Can You Expect After Treatment?
It takes around 10 days for Cool Peel to show noticeable results. The treatment will gradually take full effect over the course of a few months as your skin produces more collagen.


Downtime after Cool Peel is minimal. You can resume work and normal day-to-day activities. You may experience mild redness within the first 24 hours after treatment ‒ but it is no worse than a slight sunburn. A "sand papery" feel will occur in the days following treatment.

You can minimize redness and irritation by drinking lots of water and avoiding sunlight, face coverings, makeup, perfume, as well as topical ointments and creams. You should also minimize contact with bleach products in the first few days after treatment. Talk to your provider about which skin lotions you should use to keep your skin hydrated following treatment.

GENIUS RF MICRONEEDLING

Combining the power of micro-needling and radiofrequency (RF) energy, Genius RF is a versatile, minimally-invasive treatment that stimulates collagen and elastin production to minimize pores, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and much more.

Wish you had smooth and supple skin? Are you self-conscious of acne scars, blemishes, uneven skin tone, or stretch marks?

Genius RF may be the right treatment for you! Next, we’ll explore how it works and what you can expect during and after treatment.

How Does Genius RF Microneedling Work?

Genius RF works similarly to traditional micro-needling treatments. By penetrating deep beyond the top layer of the skin, Genius’s micro needles stimulate collagen and elastin production.

But that’s not all. The micro needles simultaneously open up channels within the dermis layer to transfer radiofrequency energy, enhancing the production and flow of collagen and elastin. The radio frequency energy travels deep within the dermis layer to target and reduce scars, tighten skin, and create a healthier, glowing complexion.

Does Genius RF Work on All Skin Types?

Yes! Genius RF can yield beautiful, long-lasting results for patients of all ages, skin types, and skin tones.

So, whether you struggle with fine lines and wrinkles, acne and scarring, uneven skin tone and texture, loose skin, or stretch marks, you can benefit from Genius RF micro-needling.

Because Genius RF’s system utilizes multiple micro-needling hand pieces, you can target facial skin and problem areas across your body.


Is Genius RF Painful? How Long Does Treatment Last?

Genius RF is minimally invasive and is widely considered one of the most comfortable micro-needling treatments on the market today.

Insertions of the micro needles are precise, minimizing tearing, trauma, and scratching. Your provider will most likely apply an anesthetic numbing cream before treatment goes underway to help soothe the area. You may experience light pressure while we apply the hand piece and emit heat from it.

What Can You Expect After Treatment?

Downtime after Genius RF treatment is minimal, meaning you can resume work and normal activity right after treatment. You may experience some skin redness for the first few hours after treatment.

Wearing sunscreen and avoiding exfoliating skin washes and treatments for the first 24 hours post-treatment can also reduce redness. It’s also recommended that patients avoid wearing makeup soon after and at least a day after treatment.

Your skin may feel smoother soon after treatment. It takes anywhere from four to six weeks for noticeably full results to show. For best results, we recommend a series of three to four treatments over the course of several months.
