SmoothLase at Pittsburgh Center for Holistic Dentistry

SmoothLase® helps reverse the effects of aging to tighten the skin around your mouth and chin. Typical laser treatments can be very abrasive. We use the state-of-the-art, FDA-approved, Fotona LightWalker® laser to stimulate the natural development of collagen in the areas to be treated – using your body’s own natural healing abilities to help your skin look and feel younger.

The process restores elasticity and smoothens light-to-medium wrinkling – and even inhibits new wrinkles from developing. The is the most natural solution we’ve found – a big improvement over injectable fillers.

How many SmoothLase treatments will I need?

How can I extend the longevity of SmoothLase treatments?

You can help keep your results in top form with normal healthy activities. For example:

  • Minimize exposure to sun
  • Avoid tanning salons
  • Don’t smoke
  • Eat well
  • Drink alcohol only in moderation
  • Take the anti-oxidants you should be taking anyway, including Vitamins C, E, A, and others we will recommend to you

Do SmoothLase treatments hurt?

Patients experience little to no discomfort from this procedure. Generally, there may be some collagen growth sensitivity, feeling of heat, or mild discomfort towards the middle of the lip area since this area is loaded with nerves.  Most people leave the office feeling comfortable.  Some temporary tingling, tenderness, or slight swelling of tissue may occur.
