Smoothbeam Acne Treatment Addsion IL
The Smoothbeam Laser is a diode laser that targets the oil glands in the deeper levels of the skin, causing them to shrink and produce less oil. The laser stimulates collagen production which can improve acne scars. The new collagen formation the laser promotes helps to plump the skin in the treated area and push the scar up from underneath, resulting in about 50-60% improvement.
In general, 4-6 treatments are required and are performed at intervals of four weeks. A topical anesthetic cream is available for application prior to the procedure because the laser pulse may be somewhat painful. There is no down time required after Smoothbeam laser treatment; the treated skin may appear red for a couple after the procedure.
