What is SmoothGlo?

SmoothGlo is a skin-changing aesthetic treatment that combines multiple powerful techniques: IPL and RF microneedling. This combination treatment is designed to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and volumize the skin, all while promoting collagen production for a more youthful and radiant complexion.

We begin with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), which targets undesired pigment or color in the skin, including from sun damage and rosacea. Multiple wavelengths are typically harnessed to deliver powerful results. Next, radiofrequency microneedling is used to optimize the stimulation of the body's natural healing response, promoting collagen production and cell regeneration. The microneedling allows the RF energy to target specific dermal layers, promoting skin tightening and further stimulating collagen production.

SmoothGlo can be used on a wide range of skin types and concerns, including acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture. The treatment can be performed on the face, neck, chest and other areas, and takes approximately 30 minutes.

This skin treatment can provide long-lasting results. Patients can expect to see smoother, firmer, and more radiant-looking skin with reduced fine lines and wrinkles.

What to expect after treatment?

Typically patients feel very temporary heat during the treatment followed by approximately 24-48 hours of redness, which represent the skin replenishing itself. The downtime is typically very short and you may apply makeup the following day after treatment.

Am I a candidate for SmoothGlo?

Almost all skin types and conditions are able to benefit from SmoothGlo treatments. If you are looking for a way to volumize and repair your skin, or just keep it shining, this may be the treatment you’ve been looking for!
