What Is ReSmooth IPL Skin Rejuvenation?

Astanza's ReSmooth IPL system offers an array of customizable settings, ensuring that every treatment is tailored to your specific goals and skin type. Its Dual-Mode filtering allows the device to precisely target specific chromophores, while its SmoothPulse technology ensures that each light pulse is delivered consistently for optimum results. Moreover, the ReSmooth IPL system is designed with your comfort in mind. The Advanced Cooling Technology integrated into the handpiece keeps your skin cool and protected throughout the treatment, making it a virtually painless experience.

How ReSmooth IPL Works

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology safely generates a broad light spectrum, allowing for unmatched versatility in addressing various skin issues. Through selective photothermolysis, the ReSmooth device precisely targets specific pigments and structures in your skin to achieve the desired results.

When the ReSmooth IPL system emits light energy, your skin absorbs it, effectively heating selected pigments or structures while sparing the surrounding tissue. This controlled heating process triggers your skin's natural repair mechanisms, stimulating collagen production and removing unwanted pigments. The result: a rejuvenated, refreshed, and radiant complexion.

To cater to your unique skin concerns, the ReSmooth system utilizes two different handpieces:

The VL 550:

  • Wavelength range: 550 - 650 nm
  • Targets vascular and pigmented lesions

The PL 400:

  • Wavelength range: 400 - 700 nm
  • Addresses hair removal and photorejuvenation

ReSmooth IPL Benefits

Here are some of the many benefits associated with this treatment:

  • ReSmooth IPL works effectively on a range of skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and uneven skin tone
  • While some treatments can be uncomfortable, ReSmooth ensures a relaxing and pain-free experience by using a cooling handpiece to soothe the skin during treatment
  • This non-invasive treatment boasts a strong safety profile, allowing you to feel confident in receiving quality and secure skin rejuvenation
  • ReSmooth IPL is non-ablative, meaning it treats the deeper layers without harming the outermost layer for a more comfortable and faster healing process
  • Most clients experience little to no downtime, with any minor side effects dissipating within a few hours to a few days.
  • ReSmooth IPL treatment can be easily combined with other cosmetic treatments to enhance and maintain your desired results

ReSmooth not only addresses your current skin concerns but also supports long-term skin improvement. By stimulating collagen and elastin production, this treatment encourages ongoing renewal and revitalization for healthier-looking skin.

Am I a Good Candidate For ReSmooth IPL Skin Rejuvenation?

ReSmooth IPL works effectively on various skin types, from very light to darker tones. The treatment adjusts to your specific needs, ensuring safe and efficient results. This treatment targets a wide range of skin issues, and the best candidates are those experiencing the following:

  • Sun damage and photoaging
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rosacea and redness
  • Hyperpigmentation and age spots
  • Uneven skin tone and texture

However, you should be in good general health before undergoing ReSmooth IPL. If you have any concerns about pre-existing medical conditions or medications, we’ll discuss them during your initial treatment.

What To Expect Before, During, And After

Before your skin rejuvenation session, it is important to follow a few essential steps to ensure the best results:

  • Stay out of the sun: Avoid direct sun exposure at least four weeks prior to the treatment. This will help prepare your skin for the illumination process and prevent burning.
  • Come fresh-faced: On the day of the treatment, arrive with a clean, makeup-free face. This allows our professionals to analyze your skin efficiently and ensure a smooth treatment process.
  • Avoid photosensitizing medications: Discontinue any light-sensitizing medications 48 hours before treatment. Consult your doctor if you are unsure whether your medication could interfere with the procedure.

The treatment typically follows these steps:

  • Cleansing: We’ll clean your skin to ensure no traces of makeup, oils, or dirt remain.
  • Cooling gel application: A cooling gel layer will be applied to the treatment area. This helps make the procedure more comfortable and also aids in the light absorption.
  • IPL treatment: We’ll use the ReSmooth handpiece to administer the calibrated light pulses. You might feel a warming sensation and a slight snapping, like a rubber band on your skin.
  • Cooling gel removal: After completing the treatment, we’ll remove the cooling gel and provide you with any necessary aftercare instructions.

This procedure will last around 30 minutes for a single treatment area.

To optimize your results and healing, follow these post-treatment care tips:

  • Apply sunscreen daily with an SPF of at least 30. Ensure it has broad-spectrum coverage, protecting against UVA and UVB rays.
  • Keep your skin moisturized by applying a gentle, fragrance-free cream.
  • Avoid heated environments (saunas, hot showers) for 72 hours after treatment.
  • Refrain from strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours post-treatment.
  • Limit sun exposure and protect yourself with a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses as your skin heals.
