This is one trend you won’t want to miss…

Few can argue that the most in-demand aesthetics treatments today are those that promise great results without downtime. In a society where Amazon Prime and Google fuel the fire of instant gratification; fast results with no downtime is the new bar that aesthetic practices are striving to reach. Patients want a one-time procedure, but will sign up for multiple sessions as long as they can get back to work the next day.

What’s going to be THE next no-downtime treatment in 2020 you’ll want to act on now?

With so many skin rejuvenation, tightening and toning procedures offering minimal downtime options, it is becoming increasingly difficult for aesthetic providers to offer their patients something new and different.

Here’s our prediction— it’s not just ONE single technology.

2020 will be all about Combination Therapy—the “stacked treatment”.

Call it stacked, call it combination treatments – whatever term you assign, the objective is to create different injuries to the skin to optimize aesthetic outcomes. One procedure directed at superficial wounding in combination with another procedure targeting deeper rejuvenation delivers a very attractive results equation: i.e. one plus one is GREATER than two.  Downtime is the other factor however that can’t add up to be unacceptable as patients still want to show up to work the next day fresh-faced.

The Perfect Duo.

In a December 2019 webinar, aesthetics laser expert Dr. Emil Tanghetti shared one of his favorite one-two “punch”: RF microneedling + the CoolPeel (a minimal downtime CO2 treatment). RF microneedling provides the deeper tightening and rejuvenation by delivering radio-frequency energy into the dermis. CoolPeel, which can only be performed by the Tetra CO2, provides a superficial injury with lasting results for sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, and overall skin tone and texture. Tag teaming anti-aging through both deep and superficial treatments, while creating little to no downtime is a no brainer for any aesthetic practice looking to keep up with today’s patient.

We know what you’re thinking, “How can a true CO2 facial provide results with minimal downtime?

The CoolPeel leverages the exclusive H-pulse: a high-peak-power short pulse that delivers a fully-ablative treatment without causing thermal damage to surrounding tissue. Without thermal damage, downtime is drastically minimized while still delivering impressive superficial results. The CoolPeel is changing the game for CO2 treatments, as it is providing the traditional results of a laser skin resurfacing treatment without the traditional downtime and discomfort.

 In their recent article “The Return of CO2”, Real Self highlighted the CoolPeel as a revolutionary treatment for laser skin resurfacing, praising its patient experience and results for patients of all ages. Combine this revolutionized approach to laser skin resurfacing with the well-known, reliable results of RF microneedling, and you’ve treated both superficial and deep concerns of aging skin, without creating unwanted downtime which will no doubt become a signature treatment in 2020.
