When your skin begins to show signs of aging, these signs will manifest in three main areas: the skin’s volume, texture, and tone. Many anti-aging treatments target one or two of these skin concerns, but few can provide dramatic results in improving all three.
Rejuvené MD in El Paso, TX, is proud to offer SmoothGlo, an advanced non-surgical treatment for rejuvenating skin texture, tone, and volume while treating acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and more.
The unique dual-technology approach from SmoothGlo provides patients with faster, long-lasting anti-aging results.
What Is SmoothGlo?
SmoothGlo is a new, innovative combination treatment that uses two of the most effective and proven technologies in skin rejuvenation to restore your skin’s youthful appearance. It works through multiple skin layers for comprehensive results, resulting in firmer, brighter, fuller, and smoother skin.
How Does SmoothGlo Work?
SmoothGlo combines two of the most popular treatments in medical aesthetics — intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy and radiofrequency (RF) microneedling — into one impactful session to treat multiple skin concerns.
What Does an IPL Treatment Do?
IPL treatments heat the skin through light energy, targeting hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. While other lasers send out a single wavelength of light, IPL sends out multiple wavelengths, allowing it to treat numerous discolorations simultaneously.
SmoothGlo takes the benefits of IPL treatment one step further. SmoothGlo’s Stellar M22 IPL removes brown lesions caused by sun damage, along with red lesions caused by broken capillaries.
In addition, the Stellar M22 platform increases the skin’s water content, elevating moisture levels and preparing it for the next step in the SmoothGlo sequence: RF microneedling.
What Does RF Microneedling Do?
Microneedling uses tiny needles to create microchannels in the skin. These microchannels prompt the body’s healing response, producing more collagen, elastin, and fibroblasts to restore youthfulness to the skin.
By adding radiofrequency waves to microneedling, the needle sends energy into the microchannels, reaching the skin’s deeper layers and boosting the procedure’s overall effects.
SmoothGlo’s Legend Pro Voluderm RF microneedling again takes the treatment even further. Voluderm RF microneedling uses the thinnest thermal electrodes available.
The treatment takes advantage of the elevated moisture levels from the Stellar M22 IPL platform by delivering an electrical charge that further encourages the skin rejuvenation process, improving contour, texture, and volume.
Clinical studies have shown this unique process results in three times as much hyaluronic acid production. This naturally occurring sugar molecule attracts water and binds it to collagen, producing hydrated, more youthful skin.
What Skin Conditions Can SmoothGlo Treat?
While there are many effective non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments, few provide the range of aesthetic benefits of SmoothGlo treatments.
SmoothGlo addresses the main concerns that cause the skin to look aged prematurely:
- Skin laxity or sagging skin
- Uneven texture and tone
- Dull skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots or excess pigmentation
In addition to targeting the majority of skin concerns, SmoothGlo also offers patients further benefits:
- Tighter, firmer skin
- Smoother texture
- Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
- Brighter, fuller skin
- Smaller pores
SmoothGlo treatment is safe for all skin types and tones.
What to Expect from a SmoothGlo Treatment
Your SmoothGlo treatment begins with a consultation where we examine and assess your skin and determine whether this is the best procedure to meet your aesthetic goals.
As part of your consultation, we evaluate your skin to determine the depth of your skin concerns and the best intensity for your procedure. Each SmoothGlo treatment is customized for your skin so that we can achieve your goals and offer you the best results.
The SmoothGlo Treatment
When you arrive for your treatment, we’ll thoroughly clean your skin in the treatment area. Some patients opt for a topical numbing cream to minimize any discomfort. Once the skin is numb, we’ll use a cold coupling gel that helps to transmit the light energy and cool the skin.
Once the SmoothGlo process begins, we start by gliding the Stellar M22 IPL device over your treatment area. After completing your IPL treatment, we clean and dry your skin completely.
Voluderm RF microneedling is the next step in the SmoothGlo process. The applicator uses a brand-new, sterile, disposable tip that contains tiny electrodes. We apply the treatment to your skin and follow it with a cooling mist to improve moisture and keep you comfortable.
After Your Treatment
SmoothGlo requires no downtime, and as long as your skin stays clean and protected from the sun, you can return to work or your everyday activities.
However, your skin will be sensitive, so it’s essential to protect your fresh skin by avoiding sun exposure, retinol, and certain products before and after your procedure. We will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your skin after your SmoothGlo session. Following these instructions will ensure you enjoy optimal results.
When Will I See the Results?
Many patients can see a rapid improvement in their skin tone and texture. However, since many of SmoothGlo’s benefits come from the body’s natural healing response, most patients begin to see their full treatment results in three to four months as the increase in collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid takes effect.
Depending on your customized treatment plan, we may recommend multiple treatments to achieve the full benefits of SmoothGlo.
