Restore Your Skin Through Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Over the years signs of aging appear as a result of exposure to the sun (photoaging) and the effects of gravity and natural aging. The texture, tone and pigmentation of your skin can be affected, often resulting in unwanted wrinkles and fine lines, sun spots and larger pores. This look of premature aging can negatively impact how we feel about our appearance and how we are perceived by others. The good news is that new advancements in laser technology provide a means of rejuvenating and restoring your skin to a more youthful, smoother look. SmartSkin™ laser fractional resurfacing, the latest advancement in laser skin renewal, optimizes your treatment outcomes while minimizing your recovery time.
How does it work?
A Bair Medical Spa clinician will use the SmartSkin™ laser to apply a series of tiny pulses of laser energy to your skin. As these microscopic holes heal, new younger-looking skin is revealed and collagen is stimulated deep within your skin.
How many treatments will I need?
You and a Bair Medical Spa clinician will carefully determine the best course of treatment based on your cosmetic and downtime expectations. You may opt for two or three sessions with minimal downtime. Or if you’re able to take a longer downtime, experience dramatic results in just one treatment!
What does the procedure feel like?
A topical anesthetic is generally applied before the procedure, although your Bair Medical Spa clinician may recommend other approaches to make you comfortable. You will relax in the exam chair and feel heat and tingling as the laser scanner moves across your face.
How long will the results last?
The entire face can be treated in as little as an hour and the results can last years with proper skin care and protection.
What should I expect following treatment?
Immediately after the treatment, your skin will feel warm and appear to be sunburned. Your body naturally starts working by replacing the aged skin cells with new ones. After a few days, you will notice a more even skin tone, smoother skin texture, and healthier-looking skin. You may see some redness and swelling which is completely normal. With more aggressive treatment, your skin might experience temporary oozing and crusting. Over time, collagen will regenerate and restore the supporting structure of your skin. You may be asked to avoid sun exposure for a period of time.
What is the recovery time?
Because the SmartSkin™ CO2 has the distinct ability to deliver micro pulses of energy, you will experience a significantly shorter recovery time than with fully ablative lasers. Each tiny hole will quickly heal in 2-7 days, and you will be able to apply makeup on the treated surface and return to your normal lifestyle. You and your Bair Medical Spa clinician may choose a more aggressive treatment regimen for more significant results with a downtime of three to five days with just one treatment.
