SMARTSKIN SKIN REJUVENATION
As the barrier between our bodies and the outside world, our skin absorbs an incredible amount of damage on a day-to-day basis. Daily exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays and environmental pollution, combined with the skin’s natural loss of critical proteins like collagen and elastin, over time leads to the development of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly on areas of the face that receive both constant exposure to the elements and are in constant motion. Luckily, modern medical technology allows us to harness the incredible power of light to stimulates the body’s natural healing processes, sparking the growth of new collagen and in some cases, actually re-growing new, younger-looking skin.
Gentle Touch Aesthetics and Wellness is pleased to offer its patients access to Cynonsure’s cutting-edge micro-ablative CO2 laser resurfacing tool—Smartskin—one of the most advanced, customizable laser resurfacing systems available today. Smartskin penetrates the power of targeted light wavelengths deep into the skin, delivering stunning skin rejuvenation in just one treatment, while cost-effectively maximizing patient comfort and safety. Smartskin laser resurfacing is minimally-invasive and requires only a quick office visit, with very little post-treatment recovery time. It is perfect for individuals seeking to eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly crow’s feet and other wrinkles around the eyes, frown lines, and lipstick lines and other wrinkles around the mouth. It can also be used to revitalize other areas of the body, including the arms, hands, and décolletage.
Laser resurfacing is a powerful rejuvenation tool that can literally erase years of damage from your skin, but utilizing such powerful technology on the delicate skin of the face and décolletage can have serious side effects if not performed by competent, experienced practitioners with years of medical training. Our physicians, and their warm, caring team at Gentle Touch Aesthetics and Wellness in Los Gatos, California offer the full benefit of extensive medical expertise coupled with a compassionate bedside manner, just as you would expect from your family doctor. They provide only custom-tailored treatments that will result in beautiful skin and a newly refreshed, youthful you!
THE SMARTSKIN DIFFERENCE
Smartskin’s revolutionary micro-ablative CO2 laser resurfacing system works by stimulating your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, the proteins that help give your skin its structure and flexibility. As these two proteins diminish over time, the skin’s natural support structure weakens and wrinkles begin to form. The powerful Smartskin CO2 laser instantly sweeps away the damaged layers of skin and creates tiny “micro wounds” that jump start the body’s natural production of new collagen fibers, rebuilding the skin’s structure and minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Just as no two patients are exactly alike, no two laser rejuvenation treatments should be exactly alike. The Smartskin laser resurfacing system is not a one-size-fits all approach; instead, it is completely customizable, allowing the practitioner to align the treatment parameters to fit the exact needs of each unique patient. The procedure can be carried out in the office and usually takes between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the level of rejuvenation required. The treatment does not require use of an anesthesia; however, the practitioners at Gentle Touch Aesthetics and Wellness can offer a number of options to ensure maximum comfort for each and every patient. Post-treatment discomfort and side effects are generally minimal, and for most patients, the procedure requires only minimum downtime. At your initial consultation, the staff at Gentle Touch Aesthetics and Wellness will review your medical history and provide detailed instructions depending on your individual requirements and aesthetic goals.
