Tackle Your Acne
at Its Source
If you’re tired of suffering harsh chemicals and painful extractions in the fight against your acne, then consider Smoothbeam® laser therapy at Chicago Skin Clinic.
Safe and non-invasive, this innovative treatment uses a gentle laser to target the root causes of your acne and trigger the production of new collagen for longer-lasting results.
Our board-certified dermatologists, Dr. Danilo Del Campo and Dr. Danny Del Campo, are eager to help you get clearer, smoother skin by treating your acne at the source.
What Is SmoothBeam?
Smoothbeam is an advanced multi-effect non-ablative laser treatment applicable to acne scarring, active acne, and collagen loss. These quick and comfortable laser treatments are very helpful in reducing active acne and acne scars and reversing some of the collagen loss of aging.
Smoothbeam stimulates the body’s natural collagen-building process with a burst of laser light which creates heat beneath your skin’s surface. Smoothbeam is non-invasive, so it doesn’t actually burn, cut, or remove the skin surface — and you get to enjoy a quick, comfortable treatment with lasting results.
How Does Smoothbeam Work?
Smoothbeam renews your skin by combining two unique elements:
- A gentle laser pulse: This technique stimulates the formation of new collagen just beneath the surface of your skin.
- A proprietary Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD): This technology sprays the upper layers of your skin with a fine mist of cryogen prior to, during, and after the laser pulse, cooling and protecting the surface of your skin.
Each pulse cycle of cooling and heating occurs within a second, making the process fast and comfortable.
The Benefits of Smoothbeam
With SmoothBeam, you can enjoy quick and comfortable laser treatments to help you:
Improve Your Acne
Smoothbeam at Chicago Skin Clinic tackles the root cause of your acne — the sebaceous gland — by sending a wavelength of light underneath the outer layers of your skin. This light is absorbed by water in your skin, which generates heat in and around the sebaceous gland.
This reaction produces a mild thermal injury that changes the sebaceous gland’s function — and because the laser works at a deep level, you won’t experience any significant pain or peeling.
Renew Your Skin
Wrinkling is caused by the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. SmoothBeam’s technology causes the body to reactivate the production of collagen in areas that have lost their “fill” (wrinkles).
This new collagen improves the skin’s elastic capabilities and overall tone. Smoothbeam helps your skin to feel firmer and smoother and to show fewer fine wrinkles.
Great for Acne & Collagen Production
Chicago Skin Clinic has been treating acne for over 40 years. Dr. Danny Del Campo or Dr. Danilo V. Del Campo can help determine if SmoothBeam is the best option for your skin.
