Cooltouch did help a little with my scarring - at least temporarily. I have come to the conclusion that all of these treatments help tempoarily because they cause injury to your skin, like a sunburn. Your skin stays a little swollen for quite some time and the swellings makes it appear smoother.

I had only 3 cool touch treatments, the last in July. Maybe my skin still looks a little better. Its really hard to tell. The reason I went back for cool touch is because I found it helped with the oil production. I don't feel the need to rush in for another treatment, so maybe it has helped.

I googled the cool touch 4 a while and believe it is used for acne prevention adn not really scar reduction. Give it a shot I guess couldnt hurt. I should have tried this before accutane maybe it would have reduced my scars while controlling the oil.

IMO Cooltouch is a ripoff. I had three full face treatments with NO results. Save yourself a lot of trouble and pain and just flush that $ down the toilet. :doh:

Also, some people have reported fat loss from it.

I was disappointed with the cool touch over the long haul. I had deeper scarring but I don't think it helped my shallow scars much either.

Hmm...i heard one of e staff nurse in a specialist clinic, she told me that 3 cooltouch = 1 resurfacing laser.

Omg.... like that then i rather go for resurfacing laser instead of cooltouch man since e respond for cooltouch from the most of u ain't positive.:(

I have had about 10 cooltouch treatments over a period of 2.5 years and I think it works great but over time the scars seem to come back. I have mild to moderate dented/rolling? scars. It took about 3 treatments for me to see any visible difference.
