The Smartskin Laser System delivers a series of tiny microscopic laser beams to the skin. This fractionated energy penetrates the skin to clear away old and damaged skin cells. The body’s natural healing process then builds new healthy cells to take their place.
Dr. Kiran Gill's laser resurfacing also stimulates the production of new collagen deep within your skin, giving you a more youthful looking appearance.
Collagen is an all-natural protein found in the human body whose stores are depleted by the aging process. It is responsible for the radiant, hydrated glow that is so ubiquitous to people in their 20’s and 30’s.
The SmartSkin laser can treat the following:
Typically, only one treatment is needed for desired results. However, since treatments can be adjusted to your cosmetic and downtime expectations, you can opt for two or three “lighter” sessions. Your doctor will determine the best course of treatment during your consultation.
A topical anesthetic is generally applied before the procedure, so there is minimal feeling during the procedure. Some patients report feeling heat and tingling as the laser scanner moves across your face. The entire face can be treated in less than 30 minutes.
Immediately after Dr. Gill's laser resurfacing, your skin will feel warm and appear to be sunburned. You may also experience some swelling, which is completely normal. Your body naturally starts working by replacing the aged skin cells with new ones.
After a few days, you will notice healthier-looking skin and a more even complexion. Over time, collagen will regenerate and restore the supporting structure of your skin, giving you the smooth skin you are looking for.
With proper skin care and protection, results often last longer.
Since Smartskin delivers micro pulses of energy you will experience a significantly shorter recovery time than with fully ablative lasers. Each tiny hole will quickly heal and in a few days you can return to your normal lifestyle. Treatments are adjustable so downtime will depend on the treatment you receive.
Fractional skin resurfacing has a faster recovery and has fewer side effects when compared to fully ablative resurfacing. Treatments with the Smartskin Laser System are generally well tolerated. During your consultation, we will explain any potential risks and help you minimize them based on your complete medical and skin history.
Smartskin is unique in that the system allows us to tailor the treatments to your needs. You may opt for 2 or 3 “lighter” treatments with very good outcomes and limited downtime, or you may want a single treatment that has a slightly longer downtime but outstanding results. During your consultation we will determine your treatment plan and discuss the cost of the treatment with you.
A consultation with Dr. Gill is private and personalized, and is a good chance for you to learn more about Dr. Gill’s highly customized approach. During this session, the doctor will examine your skin, review your medical records, and formulate a plan of action tailored specifically to your complexion.
