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. The effect of focused laser energy on the growth of new collagen over time.
Fotona was the first manufacturer to introduce two complementary laser wavelengths (Er:YAG and Nd:YAG) in a single system (Twinlight, 1994) and the first to develop a dental laser that outperforms a conventional rotary drill (Fidelis Plus II, 2004). The company’s revolutionary LightWalker AT system, introduced in 2011, is the world’s first scanner-ready dental laser as well as the first to utilize QSP (Quantum Square Pulse) technology for ultimate precision and performance. Today Fotona is recognized as a world leader in the innovation and development of new dental applications and technologies, working closely with top universities;
The Fotona Lightwalker ASP Powered Laser is used to tighten up the face from inside the mouth. The advantage of this is that it is all done naturally by heating up the collagen and stimulating the fibroblasts that make collagen, to tighten up existing collagen and make new collagen.
The procedure takes about an hour and is done at 21 days intervals, anywhere from 5-10 visits, depending on the severity. There are no after effects except for a slight warm feeling in a few cases.
The advantage is that there is no sign that anything has been done and the patient can immediately return to their normal daily routine. Also, there are no foreign substances injected into the patient every 3-4 months like botox and other fillers which can cause sagging of the face if they are eventually stopped.
The Fotona Lightwalker Laser used, is the most up to date and most powerful laser on the market. It has the advantage of having 2 lasers in one by having 2 different wavelenthts. The changes are very subtle and are only really noticed after the 7-8 visit. Severe cases may need more than 10 visits.
This procedure avoids surgery and fillers but can be used in combination with them so that the natural tightening is done first and then these procedures are done afterwards. One of the procedures used afterwards, which is showing great success is injecting the patients own body fat after it has been treated, into areas of the face in combination with PRP (platelet rich plasma, derived from centrifuged blood from patient) or PRF (platelet rich fibrin).
