Laser Skin-Toning Explained

Laser Skin-Toning explained: Skin-toning is a cosmetic procedure that uses lasers to reduce the look of brown spots or to smooth out the texture of skin. The laser removes pigment by causing trauma to the cells that produce it. This trauma prompts the cells to produce collagen, which fill in depressed scarring and smooth the skin.

Skin-toning is typically performed on the face, neck, chest, and hands.

Laser Therapy For Skin Rejuvenation

Laser therapy for skin rejuvenation is safe, gentle and works from the inside out without injections or surgical procedures. 

Three physiological elements; Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid, though abundant in our youth, steadily decline over the years, leaving our skin dry, saggy and wrinkly. These are known as “internal factors”. 

External factors are things such as overexposure to the sun, environmental substances, pollution, tanning beds, smoking and diet. 

Whatever the reason, by the time we hit our 40s the skin begins to thin and become more fragile. 

Traditional Skin Treatments

Traditional treatments may include exfoliating the skin using microdermabrasion and dermabrasion, chemical peels or other harsh methods.  These methods can require special preparation, downtime and weeks of healing. 

In addition, some of the harsher treatments may not be recommended for individuals with medical conditions such as hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation.

And lastly, more invasive treatments may be recommended such as a facelift. Any surgical procedure can be hard on your body and can cause radical changes.  

A Better Skin Treatment

Dr. Snyder and her team offer an advanced technology treatment to soften lines and wrinkles.  Smoothlase™ is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses a fractionalized laser and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin around the mouth, chin and lips.

Smoothlase uses the safe, time-tested energy of laser to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift—without disturbing the surface of the skin, all done from inside the mouth.

Dr. Snyder’s patients love SmoothLase® for a number of reasons:

  • It is natural

  • There is no downtime

  • You will see improvement for up to 6 months 

  • It is FDA cleared

  • It requires no preparation

  • It requires no after care requirements

SmoothLase is like a facelift “from the inside out,” only without the risks, post-surgical swelling, peeling, redness, and other discomforts.
