Reveal Radiance with SmartXide Tetra CO2

SmartXide Tetra CO2 Laser is a laser skin resurfacing treatment that targets only the superficial layer of skin tissue. It is considered the gold treatment to eliminate signs of aging such as wrinkles, sunspots, uneven texture, age spots, and other skin issues such as acne scars, visible and enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation.

SmartXide Tetra CO2 Laser can also be a more intensive treatment, depending on the patient’s desired skin outcomes. Choose from a more intense procedure with longer downtime or a superficial treatment with minimal downtime. These customizable treatments are tailored to the patient’s unique needs, leaving their skin more radiant and healthier than ever before.

What Is SmartXide Tetra CO2 Laser?

Skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure to improve skin texture and appearance. It involves using laser technology that addresses various skin concerns. A type of skin resurfacing treatment is SmartXide Tetra CO2 Laser, a fractional laser that utilizes carbon dioxide (CO2), which dramatically transforms skin to become smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking. Considered among the latest and most advanced CO2 laser technologies available, it is a versatile skin treatment with even more precision for optimal results.

This cutting-edge laser technology rejuvenates surface-level and deep layers of skin. Designed for quicker results with fewer side effects, beyond beautiful, glowy skin, it also stimulates natural collagen production and tightens elastin. It improves skin quality and elasticity without anesthesia and with minimal downtime.

How Does SmartXide Tetra CO2 Laser Work?

SmartXide Tetra CO2 targets the outer and deeper layers of the skin while stimulating the regeneration of new, healthy skin underneath. It improves fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, rough texture, and age spots. The patient’s entire face or specific areas around the eyes, mouth, or forehead may receive SmartXide Tetra CO2 treatment.

The fractional laser technology comes as a handpiece with customizable patterns; the plastic surgeon can choose between a narrow or wide setting. SmartXide Tetra CO2 is an ablative skin rejuvenation laser that utilizes an innovative “spray” function, which prevents pattern overlap and provides faster turnaround time. Unlike other CO2 laser treatments, SmartXide Tetra CO2 requires no administration of anesthesia on the patient (a topical anesthetic is given instead) and can even be used on sensitive areas of the face, including the neck, hands, mouth, and even eyelids. Going under this procedure offers little to no downtime, making it convenient for busy individuals.
