FAQs About SmartSkin
In a perfect world, you would be able to lose weight, age, and have a baby while still having the same tight, healthy skin that you did when you were sixteen. However, with things like the environment, age, and what can feel like a million other things, your skin starts to lose collagen and elasticity. Luckily, here at Plastic Surgery Associates, we offer our patients a variety of treatments— surgical and non-invasive— tel help tighten the skin and give you back that younger looking complexion.
As one of our popular laser treatments, SmartSkin uses fractionated energy to penetrate the skin and get rid of damaged cells while also stimulating the production of collagen deep within the skin.
Interested in SmartSkin? We have answered a few frequently asked questions about this procedure.
FAQ: What Does the Procedure Feel Like?
To help you feel comfortable during the entire procedure, we typically apply a topical anesthetic over your skin. Most patients only experience minimal discomfort and report feeling a little bit of heat and tingling as the laser moves across the skin.
FAQ: How Long Does It Take?
One of the things that our patients love most about SmartSkin is that the entire treatment takes less than 30 minutes on average which means that if you have a tight schedule, you can come in on our lunch break without missing a beat at the office.
FAQ: How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Typically patients only need one treatment to get the full results. However, some patients opt to get two or three light sessions to help promote collagen production even further. During your initial consultation with our Plastic Surgery Associates office, we will go over all of your options and help determine how many treatments you may need.
Having loose, sagging skin can make you feel a lot older than you feel on the inside. Luckily, with a variety of skin tightening treatments like Smartskin, our staff at Plastic Surgery Associates can help you gain back tighter skin.
