Case study: SmoothGlo

Procedure: SmoothGlo; sequential treatment involving IPL and RF Microneedling

Area: Face

No of sessions: 4 sessions; 1 month apart 

Aftercare: There is no downtime with SmoothGlo™. You may experience some redness and swelling immediately after your treatment, but this will resolve within a few hours. You may also see and feel some small scabs. These are completely normal and will fall off on their own within a few days.

You can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. I do recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise, saunas, and sun exposure for 24 hours. You should also use sunscreen when you are outdoors to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

This client had a CO2 done at a different medspa about 3 years ago.  She expressed her disappointment with the discoloration it left on her face.  She was upset with color and the experience she had.  She knew about microneedling but wanted to know more about RF microneedling.  After some conversation and education, she was excited about having this procedure done.  

First, we start with no numbing IPL (intense pulsed light), working on all that discoloration. IPL can also be known as a photofacial.  The IPL results depend on the energy used and how knowledgeable your technician is in using the correct settings for your specific goals. We spent some time talking about her goals to make sure SmoothGlo was the right treatment for her. Photofacials (IPL) are amazing at reversing sun-damaged skin, age spots, and fine lines. 

After the IPL we go straight to RF microneedling.  During this procedure, it gives a uniform heating effect to the deep tissue (dermis layer of the skin), which helps to stimulate new collagen and elastin fibers to grow (leading to significant improvement to skin quality and texture). The result is minimal downtime (or none at all), and a nearly painless procedure that can significantly improve wrinkling, scars, and skin laxity.

Here at Curve Appeal, we love SmoothGlo because it gives your skin a more even tone and youthful glow!
