Dr. Simon Ourian of Epione Beverly Hills, which is a top facility for cosmetic surgery, recently demonstrated a device for stretch mark removal on Good Day LA. Coolbeam cools the skinís surface and gives the Coolbeam technique its name. After the skin has cooled, light pulses will be flashed on the skin's surface. Approximately one ten-millionth of an inch of tissue is removed as the light from the device passes over the skin. The skin cells being treated will absorb the light's energy, causing these cells to instantaneously vaporize.
Dr. Ourian also demonstrated another device that he has incorporated into the Coolbeam Technique. Using radio-frequency energy, a gentle heat is generated in the sub-dermal tissue. This heat offers an improved appearance in the skin by promoting a restructuring of the collagen.
ďI believe the Coolbeam technique has several advantages over other stretch mark treatments,Ē says Dr. Ourian. ďThe Coolbeam technique does not require a recovery period like many other treatments do. This treatment technique is considered safe and may be used to address both new and old stretch marks. Finally, though some swelling is possible, the side effects are typically minimal and transitory.Ē
