Worried that your cloudy complexion needs some CPR? This extremely efficient skin renewal laser may be the lighter cousin of our signature full-fledged SmartX Lite but it can as easily breathe new life into your otherwise tepid tone, especially when done over a series of comfortable, low down-time sessions.
How does it work?
Complexion-transforming carbon dioxide laser now comes in a fractionated airbrush microspray set to deliver deep dermal, peau-transforming benefits but without the tell tale downtime. Star qualities include instant stimulation of skin’s natural cell renewal cycle, enhancement of skin texture and elasticity as well as correction of imperfections and fine lines.
Who is this treatment suitable for?
Due to SmartX Lite’s deeper penetration, this complexion-transforming, texture-refining and skin-lifting treatment is hit with mature skins who want youth-revival properties on top of deeper issues such as acne scars, stubbornly resistant pores and weather-beaten skin honed by years of neglect. This treatment is a sleeper hit with ladies with crinkly, crepey undereye skin in need of a collagen boost sans needles.
Patients with recent sunburn or on Roaccutane should not do this treatment.
How many sessions are needed?
Roughened texture, fine lines, less-than-supple skin and stubborn pores may need about 6 to 8 sessions for optimal results although most patients see improvements even after the first treatment. Treatments are typically done at 3 to 4 weeks’ interval.
What is the treatment like?
Numbing cream is applied before the treatment to maximize your comfort. Most patients describe a warm prickly sensation as the gentle spray of micro laser peel sweeps through the treatment zone.
What Can I expect after the treatment?
Flushing of the skin is expected post-procedure and generally resolves by the next day. Patients may apply make-up immediately after treatment if needed. Some may experience mild flaking of skin 3 to 4 days later as skin renewal takes place.
For the first week after the treatment, patient should avoid unnecessary UV exposure and wear sunscreen daily. Judicious care of the skin and adherence to the post-treatment advice will ensure that your skin renews in an optimal fashion that will leave your complexion sparkling with life and vitality.
SmartX Lite can also be done as part of the Dazzling Skin program. It can also be used to salvage tired and lacklustre eyes under our Miracle Eye Reviver Program. For a more intense version, consider the skin transformational benefits of SmartX.
