The Smartskin is an advanced fractional CO2 laser that’s fully adjustable, so each patient’s treatment is customized to meet their skincare needs.
When Dr. Saluja uses the Smartskin to tighten your skin, the procedure is an ablative laser so the top layer of skin down to the dermis is vaporized to product collagen. layers of tissues.
Fractional ablative lasers emit light in microbeams, creating tiny columns of vaporized tissue surrounded by untouched, healthy skin. n. As collagen-rich tissues replace old skin at the surface, your fresh skin is tighter and stronger.
Dr. Saluja also has a multitude of fractional nonablative lasers such as ICON Frax 1540, LaseMD thulium laser and Picosure Focus Lens which keeps the top layer of skin intact and delivers microbeams of heat to the skin to stimulate collagen.
PicoSure is a short-pulse laser, which means it sends out rapid pulses of light energy. The laser also comes equipped with PressureWave™ technology, which converts laser energy into gentle pressure. When these two technologies are combined, they revitalize your skin.
The laser can be used alone to permanently remove pigmented skin such as age spots and sun spots. Using PressureWave technology, however, the pressure reaches below your skin, where it triggers collagen and elastin production. Then as they grow in, you gain a new layer of tight, resilient, rejuvenated skin.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that traditionally uses fine needles to make micropunctures in your skin. These tiny wounds stimulate your body’s healing process, which triggers collagen production and releases substances that promote new cell growth.
RF microneedling adds radiofrequency energy to the traditional procedure. The RF energy is delivered through fine needles, so you get the traditional superficial punctures as well as deeply penetrating RF energy.
As RF energy heats tissues, it causes immediate skin tightening. Then it continues to stimulate collagen and elastin production in deeper layers of your skin. When the impact of RF energy is combined with microneedling, you gain more dramatic skin tightening and revitalization.
Dr. Saluja uses Scarlet™ RF microneedling, one of today’s most advanced skin tightening procedures. With the Scarlet, she can fully customize your treatment by controlling the depth and energy levels used.
