The patient wanted to see improvement in her fine lines and wrinkles that have been caused by years of sun exposure, aging and smoking. She chose a non-ablative skin rejuvenation, the Candela Smoothbeam after reviewing all non-surgical options with Dr. M. Sean Freeman, Charlotte’s top facial plastic surgeon. The Smoothbeam laser offers excellent results with little or no downtime and can be performed at 4 week intervals. She applied a topical anesthetic prior to her treatment, the same anesthetic that is utilized in laser hair removal. Results were noticed after 4 treatments and the patient saw marked improvement in the appearance of her fine lines and wrinkles.
