SmartSkin

Rejuvenate and restore your skin to a more youthful, smoother look with SmartSkin CO2™ laser fractional resurfacing.  SmartSkin is smart medicine for aged and sun damaged skin. If you’re an active person, chances are you spend more than your fair share of time in the sun. And if you’re over thirty, you are more than likely to show signs of premature aging due to sun damage. The texture, tone and pigmentation of your skin can be affected, often resulting in unwanted wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots and larger pores.  With laser facial skin treatment, you can now treat sun spots, pigmented lesions and overall skin texture — giving you a more revitalized appearance than you’ve had in years.

How does it work?

Your doctor will use the SmartSkin laser to apply a series of tiny pulses of laser energy to your skin.  As these microscopic holes heal, new younger looking skin is revealed and collagen is stimulated deep within your skin. 

How many treatments will I need?

You and your doctor will carefully determine the best course of treatment based on your cosmetic and downtime expectations.  You may opt for two or three sessions with minimal downtime, or if you are able to take a longer downtime, experience dramatic results in just one treatment!

 What does the procedure feel like?

A topical anesthetic is applied before the procedure.  You will relax in the doctor’s chair and feel heat and tingling as the laser moves across your face.

 How long will the results last?

The entire face can be treated in as little as 15-30 minutes, with results lasting years, with proper skin care and protection.

 What should I expect following treatment?

Immediately after treatment, your skin will feel warm and appear to be sunburned.  Your body naturally starts working by replacing the aged skin cells with new ones.  After a few days, you will notice a more even skin tone, smoother skin texture, and healthier looking skin.  You may see some redness and swelling which is completely normal.  Over time, collagen will regenerate and restore the supporting structure of your skin.

What is the recovery time?

Because SmarSkin Co2 has the distinct ability to deliver micro pulses of energy, you will experience a significantly shorter recovery time than with fully ablative lasers.  Each tiny hole will quickly heal in 2-7 days, you will be able to apply makeup on the treated surface and return to your normal lifestyle.  You and your doctor may choose a more aggressive treatment regimen for more significant results with a downtime of 3-5 days with just one treatment.     Cynosure lasers are safer and more effective on all skin types.
