The Smoothbeam treatment targets and heats the sebaceous glands, which are responsible for conditions including sebaceous hyperplasia and acne. Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England is proud to offer this treatment to the residents of Portland, Maine, and the surrounding areas of New England.
What is Smoothbeam?
Smoothbeam is a laser treatment that targets the sebaceous glands in the skin. The sebaceous glands are oil-producing glands, and are often one of the root causes for acne. When these glands become blocked or irritated, they can cause acne breakouts. The blockage of these glands can also cause sebaceous hyperplasia.
The Smoothbeam treatment targets these glands, heating and soothing the blocked glands. This process can alter the oil-producing effects of the glands, resulting in fewer acne breakouts and a reduction in sebaceous hyperplasia symptoms. Plus, the Smoothbeam procedure also stimulates collagen production, which can help with acne scarring, wrinkles and lines, and related concerns.
How Much Does Smoothbeam Treatment Cost?
The cost of your Smoothbeam treatments at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England will depend on a number of factors. During your free consultation, we will assess your condition and discuss your treatment goals to determine the approach to your Smoothbeam treatment that will work best for you.
We will consider these and other factors in order to provide you with the full cost of your treatment during your consultation. To make this and other services more affordable, we are proud to offer financing through CareCredit®.
What Can I Expect From the Smoothbeam Treatment?
Prior to the Smoothbeam treatment, we will apply a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. The Smoothbeam device has a cooling component that helps preserve the proper temperature and comfort of the skin. During treatment, the Smoothbeam device will be used to deliver laser energy to the skin. You may feel a stinging sensation during this process, but it is generally well-tolerated for the duration of the 20-minute treatment session.
What is the Smoothbeam Recovery Like?
There is minimal downtime or recovery period necessary after the Smoothbeam treatment. You may experience some redness in the treatment area, which can last a day or two after treatment. However, you will be able to return to all normal activities immediately following your appointment.
What Smoothbeam Results Can I Expect?
The results from Smoothbeam will develop gradually in the weeks following your treatment. Most patients need a series of treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. While we typically recommend one to three treatment sessions, we will help you determine the optimal number of treatments during your initial consultation.
