What is Smartskin C02 Laser?
Performed in Pittsburgh, Smartskin+ ™ a full-featured CO2 laser, provides highly customizable, skin resurfacing treatments to improve skin tone, texture and markedly reduce wrinkles. The beauty of Smartskin micro-ablative laser skin resurfacing technology: it provides completely customizable treatment parameters to address each patient’s clinical needs and downtime requirements.
Smartskin Laser Skin Resurfacing:
- Quick, in-office treatment session
- Non-invasive with minimal downtime
- Exceptional, lasting results for fine lines, deep creases and uneven skin tone
Smartskin is most commonly used to treat:
After the age of 20, your skin produces 1% less collagen each year. When combined with the cumulative effects of sun exposure, lines and brown spots are inevitable. Smartskin’s fractional technology delivers micro-beams of energy that extend through the skin’s epidermis into the dermis while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.
Smartskin’s fractional technology:
- Triggers the body’s natural healing response to clear away damaged skin cells
- Helps create new, healthy skin cells
- Stimulates the production of collagen and elastin
- Enhances the skin’s underlying support structure, resulting in a younger, smoother looking appearance
How many Smartskin treatments will I need?
Typically, only one treatment is needed for desired results. However, since treatments can be adjusted to your cosmetic and downtime expectations, you can opt for two or three less intense sessions. The best course of treatment will be determined during your consultation process.
What does the procedure feel like?
A topical anesthetic is generally applied before the procedure, so most patients report feeling very little during the treatment itself. Some patients do report feeling heat and tingling sensation as the laser scanner moves across the face. The entire face can be treated in less than 30 minutes.
When can I resume my daily activities?
Since Smartskin delivers micro pulses of energy, you will experience a significantly shorter recovery time than with fully ablative lasers. Treatments are adjustable so downtime will depend on the treatment you receive.
