What is it?
The Smoothbeam is a diode laser designed to target sebaceous glands, the glands on the surface of the skin responsible for the bacteria growth that causes acne. By shrinking these glands, Smoothbeam cuts off the source of the bacteria and inflammation, reducing your symptoms and freshening your appearance. Smoothbeam laser therapy is more effective than topical or oral medications, and studies have shown that it clears up as much as 98 percent of acne blemishes after just four monthly treatments. This includes the erasure of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, pustules, and cysts.
What to expect
There are many benefits to the Smoothbeam laser including. This treatment can provide you with the following results: clearer skin for a brighter complexion; stimulation of collagen production for tighter, more resilient skin, improvement of acne scarring for healthier-looking skin, and no downtime so you can immediately return to your day. The procedure itself is virtually painless, but the comfort level can vary from person to person; you may find it completely tolerable while others may feel discomfort. If you’d like, you can request to have a topical anesthetic applied about an hour before your session.
After the procedure
As with all types of medical procedures, there is a risk of side effects, but those from Smoothbeam are typically mild. These side effects can include redness and tenderness and could last 2-3 days. After your procedure, you should use sunscreen daily and avoid any prolonged sun exposure, such as tanning, for 4-6 weeks.
