CynoSure SmartSkin Q & A

What is SmartSkin fractional laser?

SmartSkin by Cynosure is an advanced, customizable laser skin resurfacing system. The revolutionary technology delivers laser energy in a safe and efficient manner.

The laser energy penetrates your skin in small columns at just the right depth to address skin imperfections. Because some of your skin remains untouched, healing is faster than with other skin rejuvenation or resurfacing methods, but all of your skin benefits from an enhanced look.

What types of skin issues can SmartSkin address?

SmartSkin treatments are effective on many signs of aging. These include:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Age spots and sun damage
  • Blotchy skin and pigmentation issues
  • Skin laxity

SmartSkin is powerful enough to address scarring and sun damage, but gentle enough to positively affect the area around your eyes. Dr. Singh evaluates your skin and your aesthetic goals to create a SmartSkin treatment plan that’s right for you.

What should I expect during a SmartSkin treatment session?

Prior to the application of laser energy, a technician from Elysium Aesthetics and Vein Care applies a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort during the 30- to 60-minute procedure. Dr. Singh then applies the laser energy using a wand. As the energy penetrates your outer layer of skin to stimulate collagen production, you may feel some warmth and tingling.

How long does it take to recover from SmartSkin laser resurfacing?

Immediately following the laser treatment, you may feel some warmth and experience redness that looks like a sunburn. Some men and women may have points of bleeding and swelling, but this is completely normal. You may also experience some skin crusting and peeling.

Recovery usually takes a couple of days, depending on the target area treated and the intensity used. Expect to take a few days of downtime, but know you can return to your normal daily activities soon afterward. Recovery time is much quicker compared to ablative laser treatments or more invasive surgery.
