Product Description

Candela SmoothBeam

The 1450-nm diode laser is effective for the treatment of facial acne as well as for improving the appearance of scarring. The nonablative laser has been shown to dramatically and safely improve inflammatory facial acne by partially damaging sebaceous glands to reduce sebum secretions. The 1450-nm diode laser has demonstrated greater scar response after treatment than the nonablative 1320-nm Nd:YAG laser; this quality has been particularly helpful for patients with acne scarring.The laser is believed to achieve these results by targeting sebaceous glands in the upper dermis while sparing the epidermis, reducing downtime. The laser focuses on the water in the skin, which is likely why the upper dermis is heated and therapeutically damaged. Interestingly, the 1450-nm laser appears to induce a systemic effect on the skin, as treatment on only one side of the face in one 2011 study resolved acne lesions on both sides of the face. Unfortunately, in our experience, subsurfacing laser technology has had limited improvement of facial wrinkling. Downtime is minimal and is restricted to temporary erythema, edema, and hyperpigmentation after treatments. This laser achieves mild to moderate improvement of acne scarring in Asian patients without producing permanent pigmentary change even in darker skin types IV and V.
