SmoothLase – Weatherford, TX

Turn Back the Clock without Surgery

It’s normal for the skin around the lips, chin, and neck to lose its youthful firmness and smoothness as the years go by. Often, this is due to a gradual loss of collagen. High-quality creams and other skincare products can reduce collagen loss — but their effectiveness is limited. For the best results, a professional laser treatment may be necessary. If you would like to stimulate your body’s natural collagen-production process and turn back the clock on your appearance, visit our office to ask about SmoothLase in Weatherford.

What Is SmoothLase?

Older woman with youthful skin thanks to SmoothLase in WeatherfordInvisalign treatment involves the use of a series of clear plastic aligners that are designed to slowly shift your teeth into place. After we’ve taken special impressions and images of your smile, we will create your Invisalign aligners. You’ll wear each aligner for 20 to 22 hours a day, for about 2 weeks, switching them out for the next in the series to progress your treatment. After about 10 to 18 months, you’ll have a perfectly straight smile. We will recommend that you wear a retainer to ensure the results of your treatment for a lifetime.  

SmoothLase harnesses the power of laser light therapy, administered intraorally, to stimulate your body to produce more collagen. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that aims to tone, lift, and tighten the skin around the chin, lips, and neck.

How many treatments you’ll need depends on your age. For most people, we recommend one treatment per decade of life. For example, a 40-year-old may need four sessions to see optimal results.

Each session takes about 30-45 minutes. We schedule them about three weeks apart to allow the new collagen time to develop.  New collagen continues to be formed for about one month after the last treatment.

After you finish your initial course of treatment, our doctors advise a booster treatment every 6 – 12 months.  How fast your collagen diminishes depends on your overall health, lifestyle, and habits.  Your diligence in protecting the results of your treatment can save you both time and money.

Here are some factors that can increase collagen breakdown and that you should strive to avoid after your treatment:

Generally, patients may experience some feelings of heat or mild discomfort in the lip area since this part of the body is loaded with nerves. Intraorally, you may feel nothing, but it is also possible to experience a warm sensation, especially as treatment progresses and we continue to deliver laser therapy to various spots. Most people leave the office feeling comfortable.  Tenderness and tingling are normal, mild, and temporary.
