At CLARA, two of our most popular, low-downtime treatments include the Photofacial and the CoolPeel. What’s the difference, and which one is right for you?
While both treatments improve the appearance of the skin with minimal disruption in your schedule, they use different technologies and offer distinct benefits. Let’s explore the key differences between a Photofacial vs. CoolPeel, so you can choose which one to book today!
The Photofacial is a BroadBand Light (BBL) treatment, also known as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). It is a versatile and non-invasive procedure used to address discoloration of various shades. The Photofacial has several different filters that we can use to select specific wavelengths of light to target specific chromophores in the skin, such as melanin (causing brown discoloration) or hemoglobin (causing redness). It can effectively treat conditions like sun damage, age spots, redness, and rosacea.
CoolPeel is a cutting-edge laser treatment designed to rejuvenate the skin and address signs of aging. It utilizes the advanced technology of a CO2 laser to provide controlled and precise resurfacing of the skin. CoolPeel is a milder form of traditional CO2 laser resurfacing, making it more suitable for patients who desire significant results without the extended downtime associated with more aggressive laser treatments.
The Photofacial utilizes intense pulsed light, whereas CoolPeel employs a fractional CO2 laser system.
The Photofacial is perfect for treating a broad range of skin discoloration and improving skin tone, while CoolPeel primarily targets signs of aging and irregularities in skin texture.
Both treatments can be completely customized to your skin’s needs: the Photofacial can be customized by adjusting the wavelengths to address specific color concerns, while CoolPeel allows for variable laser depth settings to target lines and wrinkles.
Both treatments offer minimal downtime, getting you back to your life within a day or two of treatment. Perfect for the busiest of us who want results but can’t carve out weeks of healing.
Both the Photofacial and the CoolPeel offer significant benefits in the realm of non-invasive skin rejuvenation with minimal downtime. Choose a Photofacial if your primary concern is skin tone, and choose a CoolPeel if your primary concern is skin texture. Or better yet, why not plan for one of each, to give yourself an all-over-freshening-up this fall and winter?
