The Smoothbeam 1450 nm diode laser is the first device specifically designed to target the root cause of acne, the sebaceous gland.
As an added benefit for patients with acne scarring seeking smoother skin, Smoothbeam safely improves acne scars and can also softens fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
The Smoothbeam laser emits a beam of light that will alter the sebaceous glands underneath the skin. These are the glands that produce the oil that feeds the bacteria which causes subsequent inflammation.
Instead of drying out the skin (Retin A and benzoyl peroxides) or killing the germs (oral antibiotics) or drying up the oil production on a short term basis (Accutane), the Smoothbeam laser actually alters these glands.
The Smoothbeam laser is FDA approved for the treatment acne and acne scars. It allows for "lunchtime procedures" with NO DOWNTIME since it is a non-ablative teatment.
