If you’re looking for gentle, effective acne treatment, then SmoothBeam is something to consider.
One of the newest and most powerful tools that dermatologists have available, the SmoothBeam laser capable of reducing the appearance of active acne, acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines. By stimulating the natural production of collagen, it can treat several issues related to acne.
One of the greatest benefits of this procedure is that it doesn’t remove, cut or burn surface skin. It actually focuses on the underlying layers of skin.
How the SmoothBeam Works
By heating up the upper dermis, the SmoothBeam laser can provide noticeable results. During the procedure, you shouldn’t even feel the laser because it has a built-in cooling device.
The cooling system is added to protect your skin from damage. Heat from the laser targets your upper dermis, which stimulates the production of collagen. The result is increased production of collagen.
When you have more collagen in your skin, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and forces sebaceous glands to shrink.
Are You A Candidate For SmoothBeam?
An ideal candidate for the procedure should be looking to improve his or her acne, wrinkles or light scarring. However, you should also have realistic expectations and good health. An ideal candidate will also have a positive attitude.
The SmoothBeam Skin Laser Procedure
Before your treatment with the laser, the specialist will apply a local anesthetic to your skin.
Each treatment session with the SmoothBeam laser can take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes. Most patients need more than one treatment to achieve optimal results.
If you’re undergoing the procedure for active acne, then you’ll need to be treated with the SmoothBeam laser regularly. To maintain the results, active acne must be routinely treated with the laser. The sebaceous glands won’t stay shrunken forever, so they must be treated every few months.
What Results Can You Expect?
Since everyone is different, results will vary. However, most patients can enjoy skin that is smoother and evenly textured.
When compared with exfoliation treatments, such as microdermabrasion, SmoothBeam laser treatment usually provides results that are more dramatic.
After undergoing treatment with the SmoothBeam laser, most patients don’t require too much aftercare and can quickly return to daily activities. After getting treated with SmoothBeam, it’s important that you avoid direct sun exposure for at least six weeks, and you should avoid causing skin irritation with harsh exfoliation products.
