Skin Care Review: Candela SmoothBeam

by denise, kingwood, TX usa


To improve active acne and to even out fine to moderate lines and wrinkles.

You need several sessions to get results!

I had my first smoothbeam laser treatment and I did not see any noticeable results, in fact, I think I broke out even more. Well, because I managed to find a place to get the procedure done cheaply, I thought I would try a second round (I have mild acne that is mainly on the forehead and hairline from hormonal imbalance). The technichian told me that usually by the second treatment, a considerable decline in acne is achieved. Well, I didn't have much hope, but by golly, my forehead over a 2 week period COMPLETELY cleared up. It was also mentioned to me that those with more active and cystic type acne need more treatments to achieve results. It sounds like the other reviewers either did not give it a chance or their doctor raised the laser level too high without the right ratio or coolant which can cause hyperpigmentation. Also, you MUST stay completely out of the sun unless you have a total block, or hyperpigmentation is inevitable.

Now, as for the fine lines and wrinkles that I have under the eyes and brow (I make a lot of exagerated expressions) I have seen no improvement: however, I was also told that approx. 4-6 treatments are need for those. Makes sense! I'll post back!
