Frequently Asked Questions
How does the SmartSkin™ procedure work?
During the procedure, the SmartSkin™ laser will be used to effectively stimulate and rejuvenate both the outer (epidermis) and inner (dermis) layers of your skin.
The SmartSkin™ laser is applied to the treatment areas with a unique scanning handpiece. Each laser pulse creates a micro-zone of ablation in the epidermis, and the number of pulses in a given area can be carefully controlled.
Once it has passed through the epidermis, the laser energy is delivered to the deeper, collagen bearing tissues below. It is this interaction of the laser with this tissue that ultimately leads to the skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.
Am I a candidate for the SmartSkin™ procedure?
If you have sun-damaged and aged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, old acne scars, or areas of discoloration (brown spots), you may be an excellent candidate for the SmartSkin™ procedure. The only way to know for sure is to discuss your aesthetic goals, review your history, and examine the potential treatment areas during a free SmartSkin™ consultation. Please note that some skin types may not be well suited to this procedure.

What can I expect during and immediately after a SmartSkin™ procedure?
The SmartSkin™ procedure takes about one hour. We will pre-medicate and apply a topical numbing cream prior to beginning the procedure. After the treatment, we will continue to cool the skin before applying a protective ointment.
You will notice some degree of redness and swelling after the procedure. It is not uncommon for dark spots to get darker before flaking off. You may also have an itching and/or warm sensation, plus some skin dryness. These procedure effects are all normal, and the intensity varies, based upon the treatment parameters used at the time of your SmartSkin™ procedure.
It is not uncommon to need several days of downtime immediately after the procedure. During this time, you will need to follow our post-procedure instructions carefully to have the best possible result.
When can I expect to see results, and how long will they last?
We often see very nice results as early as 10-14 days after the procedure. Additional improvements can be noted for several months, as the collagen rejuvenation process takes full effect.
