How does SmartXide 2 work?
SmartXide DOT is a fractional CO2 laser system. CO2 lasers are the most powerful systems on the market, capable of amazing results. The light associated with CO2 lasers is able to stimulate skin rejuvenation, only hitting small areas in depth thanks to SmartXide’s fractional technology. This is due to micro beams only targeting a proportion of the skin’s surface at one time, which allows faster healing, causing a tightening of the skin and stimulation of collagen production and resulting in younger and softer looking skin.
Does it hurt? Will I need anaesthetic?
The only sensation you can expect is slight ‘stinging’ that only lasts for a fraction of a second. The CO2 treatment is safe and effective meaning that it can be used on every part of your face, neck and hands. Usually a topical anaesthesia is applied 30 minutes prior to the session.
Who is SmartXide 2 Treatment suitable for?
The SmartXide 2 Treatment is suitable for everyone and all skin types. It treats fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, pigmentation, enlarged pores, scars on the face and body and allows for improved tightness and texture on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands.
How long does the treatment last?
Around 30-60 minutes.
How many treatments will it take to see the best results?
The results will be visible after the first session, but continue to develop for 3-6 months and according to the number of sessions required. Usually 2-4 sessions are capable of giving you the maximum results.
What precautions are necessary after the treatment?
Post-treatment only lasts a few days and any redness is easily covered with cosmetics. (A good quality mineral make up is recommended). The only precaution recommended is to use a suitable sun screen for a short period of time after the treatment.
Are there any unpleasant side effects after the CO2 laser treatment?
You may experience slight redness for a few days and minimal flaking.
When will the first results be visible?
The majority of patients observe a better skin tone after the first treatment. You may also notice that marks have faded after one single treatment, although two may be necessary to see these effects. Your Doctor will work out the best programme for treating deep wrinkles.
Are the results permanent?
All the improvements in your skin obtained with SmartXide 2 are permanent. Nevertheless, as you age, the beneficial effects will gradually diminish. A healthy lifestyle with regular exercise helps maintain your positive results.
Can I repeat the treatments?
There are no contraindications against repeating the treatment programme with Smartxide 2. In a few years, with minimum time investment, you will still be able to obtain the results you desire.
