Smoothbeam is an advanced multi-effect non-ablative laser treatment for acne scarring, active acne, sebaceous hyperplasia, and collagen building. These quick laser treatments are highly effective in reducing active acne and acne scars and reversing some of the collagen loss of aging*. Smoothbeam stimulates the body’s natural collagen-building process. Non-invasive (non-ablative) lasers do not burn, cut or remove the skin surface. Instead, their action occurs underneath the outer layers of the skin. By stimulating the collagen production in the dermis with the laser’s thermal beam, scars are gradually filled in by your body’s own collagen.
The Smoothbeam laser employs a patented process with DCD (Dynamic Cooling Device). This device first deep-cools the area of skin to be treated with a short blast of cryogen spray which protects the epidermis. This is instantly followed by the laser beam which targets the upper dermis. This combined cooling/heating process protects the outer layer of skin while allowing the heat to reprogram the collagen-building process within the deeper layers of your skin. The scars are then filled in from the “inside out” by the production of this new collagen. Multiple treatments are necessary to stimulate collagen production and minimize acne scars.
