How does it work?
Your clinician will use 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?
Generally on the neck, the skin is thinner and must be treated less aggressively.
The neck is usually treated in a series of 3 treatments spread out over 3 months.
What does the procedure feel like?
A topical anesthetic is generally applied before the procedure, although we may recommend other approaches to make you comfortable. Most people describe it as a "prickling" sensation. You will relax comfortable in our medspa and feel heat and tingling as the laser scanner moves across your neck.
How long will the results last?
The neck can be treated in as little as 15-30 minutes, with results lasting years, with proper skin care and protection. Clients receiving Smartskin Laser treatment generally notice results immediately that progressively improve. Although you will see improvement with your first treatment, optimal results are usually experienced within two to three months after your last treatment. Remember your skin needs time to heal and replace the damaged tissue with new collagen and elastin, along with new and healthy skin cells.
Can I do this with other treatments I am getting?
Ongoing skincare is essential Obagi and Vivite products can enhance the look of your new younger skin . Often these are good maintenance treatments which help to remodel collagen.
Please do not use Retin A, or TriLuma for 2 weeks prior to your resurfacing procedure. Talk to one of our clinicians if you have any questions concerning products you are using. Also, minimize sun exposure prior and after your treatment.
What should I expect following the 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.
Over the course of your three teatments, collagen will regenerate and restore the supporting structure of your skin. You will be given a post-treatment kit and instructions for care. Following treatment it is extremely important to treat your skin gently and avoid direct sun exposure. Your newly emerged skin is very sensitive and must be treated gently during healing.
What is the recovery time?
Because 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 like fraxel. Each tiny hole will quickly heal and within a few days you will be able to return to your normal lifestyle.
