Today, there are revolutionary non-invasive rejuvenation treatments that can improve the skin’s appearance. For those seeking a non-surgical restorative treatment for the skin, Dr. Miguel A. Delgado, one of San Francisco’s leading board-certified plastic surgeons, recommends Cynosure’s SmartSkin®+ laser resurfacing.

How is SmartSkin®+ Treatment Unique?

SmartSkin®+ is an advanced micro-ablative CO2 laser device that can deliver a powerful, yet refined treatment. When laser energy is emitted, it enters the skin in microscopic columns. The thermal energy reaches the deep layers of the skin, prompting tissue repair and new collagen formation.

The device’s parameters can be precisely controlled, thus treatments can be designed according to the needs of a patient’s skin. Some advantages to SmartSkin®+ are:

  • Customizable laser pulse
  • Control over the density of treatment

During your SmartSkin®+ treatment, Dr. Delgado and his team of Registered Nurses will deliver laser energy to the skin using the device’s hand piece. By adjusting the power settings, Dr. Delgado can determine the depth that the heat energy will reach: the higher the power, the deeper the micro-ablative laser columns will penetrate into the skin. A deeply penetrating treatment is excellent for treating moderate-to-severe wrinkles and creases, but may also result in greater downtime. Dr. Delgado will calibrate treatment based on your specific aesthetic goals and downtime considerations. His aim is to optimize results and minimize recovery time.

To ensure your comfort during the procedure, a topical numbing cream will be applied before starting the SmartSkin®+ treatment. A single session takes about 25-40 minutes to complete. Although significant improvement can be seen after one treatment, multiple treatments can be scheduled to obtain best results.

Recovery and Results

After the treatment, you can expect to experience some redness and swelling. The recovery time associated with SmartSkin®+ is shorter than that of a fully ablative resurfacing procedure. Downtime will vary patient to patient, depending on the extent of the treatment. However, the majority of patients can return to their normal routines 48-72 hours after the procedure.
