Smoothbeam

What It Is

The Smoothbeam Laser is a state of the art non-ablative laser treatment that can be used to effectively treat active acne, acne scarring, and collagen and elasticity loss. Not only are these laser treatments quick and relatively painless, they are also beneficial in the stimulation of the body’s natural collagen production through the bursts of laser light that creates heat underneath the surface of the skin.

The Smoothbeam Laser has the ability to treat oily and acne prone skin and various types of acne scarring. The laser works by specifically targeting and altering the sebaceous glands in the skin to produce less sebum, which will result in the reduction of clogged pores. With time, this will lead to a reduction in acne inflammation and breakouts. The SmoothBeam Laser’s ability to stimulate collagen growth in the dermis will restore lost volume from the effects of acne scarring.

How It Works

By combining two unique elements, the SmoothBeam Laser provides skin rejuvenation and renewal. The gentle laser pulse will assist in the revival of collagen production under the surface of the skin, while a proprietary Dynamic Cooling Device sprays the treated skin with a fine most of cryogen before, during, and after the laser pulse, which cools and protects the surface of the skin. The laser beam that specifically targets the upper dermis is instantly followed. The combination of the almost simultaneous heating and cooling will protect the outermost layers of the skin while the heat works to stimulate the collagen building process in the deepest layers of your skin. This will allow the acne scarring to be filled from the inside out and will restore lost volume on the treatment area.

The process as a whole is extremely quick, with each pulse cycle of cooling and heating lasting a single second for ultimate comfort. In order to maintain the collagen production and minimize the appearance of acne scarring, multiple treatments are frequently needed for dramatic results.

Areas Treated

The SmoothBeam Laser is a non-invasive, gentle procedure that can be completed anywhere on the face and body. Because it is highly effective in the treatment of active acne, acne scarring, and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles through collagen production, it is most commonly used on the face. Other popular areas include the neck and chest.

Results

The SmoothBeam is a safe, gentle, non-invasive laser treatment perfect for those with sensitive skin types as this non-ablative laser treatment does not cut, burn, or remove the surface of the skin. Alternatively, the work is done in the deepest layers of the skin, resulting in no substantial pain or peeling. The stimulation of collagen production at this depth work to partially fill and lift acne scarring from the inside out. This also works to correct and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that are often the result of collagen and elastin loss. The reactivation of collagen production at the skin’s dermis layer improves the skin’s elasticity and overall skin tone, resulting in firmer, smoother, and revitalized complexion.

Another advantage of the SmoothBeam Laser is that it is very short “lunchtime” procedure. Sessions generally take 10 to 30 minutes, and with virtually no downtime, patients are able to return to work and resume their normal activities right away. You can also opt to receive a deeper treatment, which would increase healing and recovery time, but also provide more noticeable results after a single treatment. The number of sessions as well as the intervals at which they occur will vary from patient to patient, so Dr. Jain will discuss this with you during your consultation to determine the severity of your condition as well as your desired results.
