Are you unhappy with the effects of aging in your cheeks or chin? Does skin seem to sag around your lips, under the eyes, or at the jawline? Would you like to look younger without a facelift? If so, then Smoothlase laser facial rejuvenation might just be for you. This noninvasive, nonsurgical fractionalized laser can tap into your body’s healing reserves to tighten, tone, and lift facial skin that’s showing the signs of aging. And this laser works from inside the mouth, further protecting you from adverse side effects of skin laser treatments.
Using Your Body’s Natural Power
When we’re young, our body is constantly growing and changing. Part of that growth is that it is constantly renewing and replacing the skin. But as we get older, the process of skin replacement slows down, along with the production of vital proteins like collagen and elastin. This makes our skin more prone to wrinkles, folds, and sagging.
Your body still has the ability to make these vital proteins, it just needs to be stimulated. And that’s how Smoothlase works. It stimulates your body to produce collagen and elastin, which restores some of the youthful properties to your skin.
What Smoothlase Can Do
Smoothlase works on your skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which naturally leads to tighter, smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Smoothlase works from within the mouth, which allows it to tighten skin in much of your face, including skin around the:
- Mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Lips (lipstick lines)
- Nose (bunny lines)
- Jawline (jowls)
- Under-eye region (tear trough)
Although it can’t achieve the same lifting results as surgery, it can address mild to moderate sagging and wrinkles in these areas.
Also, the same laser used in Smoothlase can be used to treat snoring in a procedure called Nightlase.
Benefits of Smoothlase
Smoothlase is a great alternative not just to facelift surgery, but also to older forms of fractional laser treatments. That’s because it’s applied from within rather than to the surface skin.
With Smoothlase, you will enjoy:
- Significant lifting and tightening of skin
- Results develop subtly & gradually
- Long-lasting results
- No surgical scars, bruising, or swelling
- No downtime
- No skin redness
- No sensitivity to sun
Smoothlase is a great way to get subtle facial rejuvenation. Although the ultimate results are dramatic, they develop gradually as your skin slowly restores more youthful collagen and elastin.
There will be no signs of surgery, such as scars, bruising, or major swelling. You won’t have to take any time off from work or play–keep to your busy schedule.
And it’s a great alternative to more traditional fractional laser treatments because your skin won’t be visibly reddened, and you won’t have sensitivity to the sun, such as burning or the risk of developing discoloration.
How Smoothlase Works
Smoothlase is a fractional laser treatment applied in the mouth. The laser delivers energy to specific depths in your skin. This stimulates your body to start producing collagen, elastin, and other components of youthful skin.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes. There is some minor discomfort at the time the laser activates, but it passes quickly, and most people will leave the office comfortable.
You don’t have to take any time off from work or other activities. You can get right back to normal immediately after.
Over the next few days following the procedure, you might experience some tenderness and may notice slight swelling, but these pass. Over the following weeks and months, you will notice that your skin is tightening and smoothing. For optimal results, we recommend 3-5 treatment sessions 3 weeks apart. The results can last six months or more.
