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 in advancement in laser skin renewal, optimizes your treatment outcomes while minimizing your recovery time.

Ask your doctor how you can benefit from a SmartSkin Laser Rejuvenation treatment.

How does it work?

You and your doctor 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 your doctor 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 physician may recommend other approaches to make you comfortable. You will relax in the doctor’s 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 15-30 minutes, with results lasting 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.  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 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 and in 2-7 days, you will be able to apply makeup on the treated surface and return to your normal lifestyle.  You and your doctor may choose a more aggressive treatment regimen for more significant results with a downtime of three to five days with just one treatment.

Fractionated CO2

Better than the Competition

Named the #1 Antiaging Breakthrough
according to WebMD

Here are the facts, and what it can do for you and your skin:

  • Outperforms any non-CO2 based laser and device, such as Fraxel and Pearl.
  • Powerfully reverses 5-10 years of skin aging, wrinkles, and sun spots.
  • Dramatically reduces old acne and trauma related scarring.
  • Significantly minimizes risk of future development of skin cancers.
  • Effectively decreases dyschromia such as freckles and melasma.

Suncoast Lasers is enthusiastic that we offer THE new gold standard in skin resurfacing that is safe for most skin types, while at the same time, delivering dramatic ablative clinical results with minimal discomfort.

FRACTIONAL technology delivers the CO2 laser energy in a pixel like fashion where microscopic holes fractions of a millimeter are punched into the skin right next to each other via computer-generated pattern. This fractionated CO2 laser technology delivers microscopic columns of 10600nm CO2 laser energy across the skin barrier, penetrating 20% of skin surface area right next to each other. The other 80% of non-ablated
skin surface areas facilitate faster healing. Fraxel, Pixel, and Pearl lasers have the right idea of fractionated laser delivery but with the wrong wavelengths thus requiring 5 treatments and inferior clinical outcome compared with ONE treatment of fractional CO2 laser technology.

Our fractionated CO2 outperforms any non-CO2 based laser and device for skin rejuvenation, while offering a relatively short downtime, typically 5-7 days. There is minimal discomfort, and only topical anesthetics are needed for most individuals;
mild sedation for additional comfort available for patients with transportation.

This is a procedure that may pay for itself with a decreased need of fillers like Restylane and Botox for wrinkles and age lines. Also, what you see initially, may not be what you end up with. Many patient’s appearance continues to improve with stimulation of collagen production up to 6 months after the laser procedure Another plus: These laser treatments are safe and effective for virtually all skin surface areas including face, neck,
chest, back, arms and hands.
