SmoothLase is an innovative, non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that utilizes a special laser as well as the body’s natural healing process to lift, tighten, and tone sagging and loose skin around the lips, mouth, and chin. It can enhance skin tone and smooth minor wrinkling by bringing back elasticity, which allows you to look and feel younger. Once the clock is turned back, it is important to maintain your results through your lifestyle, diet, and occasional touch-ups so that future wrinkles as well as the loss of elasticity and skin tone is prevented.
SmoothLase utilizes the time-tested and safe energy of a laser to fuel the deepest layers of the skin—which includes those that are addressed during a surgical facelift—without ever visually disturbing the skin’s surface and all of this is done from within your mouth.
Fontana was the very first manufacturer that introduced two laser wavelengths that complemented one another in a single system. Fontana was also the first manufacturer to develop a dental laser that had the ability to outperform a traditional rotary drill. Introduced in 2011, Fontana’s revolutionary LightWalker AT system is the very first dental laser in the world to be ready for scanners and the first to make use of Quantum Square Pulse (QSP) technology for ultimate performance and precision. In today’s day and age, the company is renowned in the innovation and development of brand-new dental technologies and applications and they work closely with top dental research centers and universities worldwide.
The Fontana Lightwalker ASP-Powered Laser is utilized to help tighten facial features from within the mouth. The primary benefit of this is that the process is done naturally be warming the collagen and encouraging the fibroblasts that create collagen to firm existing collagen and produce brand-new collagen.
The overall procedure only takes roughly an hour and can be performed every 21 days. Depending on the severity, it should take somewhere between five and 10 visits. There are no side effects after the treatment aside from a warm feeling that some patients may feel. The average cost per visit is $700.
The benefit to this is that there is no visual sign that any type of procedure has been performed and patients are able to return to normal activities immediately following the treatment. In addition, there are no foreign substances that are used like there are with dermal fillers and Botox, which can often results in the sagging of the face if these injections are stopped.
The Fontana Lightwalker Laser is considered the most powerful and up-to-date laser available on the market today. Thanks to it having two lasers built into one and two different wavelengths, this laser offers subtle changes that are only noticed after seven or eight visits. In severe cases, more than 10 visits are necessary.
The procedure completely avoids surgery and dermal fillers, though it can be used in conjunction with them to allow for the natural tightening process to be done first and then the procedures afterward. One of these said procedures that can be done afterward, which has shown to be quite effective, is injecting the body fat of the patient into areas of the face in conjunction with platelet rich plasma (PRP) or platelet rich fibrin (PRF).
