SmoothGlo Benefits

Legend Pro™ VoluDerm™ RF microneedling boosts the production of hyaluronic acid, improving skin volume.

Understanding How SmoothGlo Works

SmoothGlo is an innovative treatment that combines the StellarM22™ IPL and Legend Pro™ VoluDerm™ technologies. This combination of energies allows the SmoothGlo treatment to improve your skin in various ways. Treatments with the SmoothGlo improve skin tone, texture, and volume, which sets a new standard for aesthetic results.

Stellar IPL

The Stellar IPL is considered a notable enhancement in skincare. With one applicator, 9 filters, and 3 light guides, Stellar IPL treats over 20 skin conditions! These include common skin concerns, acne, rosacea, pigmented and vascular lesions, and reduced hyperpigmentation with photo rejuvenation.

Legend Pro™ VoluDerm™

The Legend Pro Voluderm emits smooth fractional ablative energy that ensures patient comfortability while providing top-rated results. Using the thinnest RF-assisted thermal electrodes, Voluderm encourages the renewal of healthy skin underneath the skin by creating micro-wounds. These tiny wounds prompt a healing mechanism that triggers collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production.

What to Expect During

The first portion of the SmoothGlo treatment uses the StellarM22™ IPL. This device removes both brown and red lesions, improving overall skin tone. In addition, it also increases the water content in the skin for extra hydration.

The increase in the skin’s water content amplifies the clinical effects of the second part of the treatment with the Legend Pro™ VoluDerm™ RF microneedling. This device exposes the elevated moisture in the skin to an electrical charge that improves the skin’s texture, contour, and volume.

SmoothGlo reverses the signs of aging by delivering both immediate and progressive results, with full results achieved in 3-4 visits with little to no downtime.

What to Expect After SmoothGlo

After your SmoothGlo treatment, your skin will be warm for a few hours. You may also experience mild redness and swelling for up to 4 days. Minor scabs may develop in the treatment area. This is entirely natural, and the scabs will shed as they fall off over the course of a week following treatment. Overall, your skin texture will feel dry, but this is also normal and will go away within 4-7 days.

SmoothGlo FAQS

SmoothGlo is a gentle skin treatment. It uses IPL and RF microneedling to improve skin concerns without pain or recovery time.

Ideal SmoothGlo candidates are typically healthy adults struggling with skin pigmentation issues or want to improve overall skin tone, texture, and volume.

Typically, a series of 3 treatments spaced a month apart. However, you may require annual follow-up treatments to maintain your benefits. An additional 2 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart may also encourage optimal benefits. Once you have these 5 sessions, you should receive 2 yearly maintenance treatments. However, your exact treatment plan will depend on your unique skin needs. To learn how many SmoothGlo treatments you need, schedule a consultation with the skincare experts at Alora LifeSpa.

IPL is Intense Pulsed Light therapy. It is also known as a Photofacial. They improve the color and texture of the skin without surgery.
Subcutaneous fat is not very deep on the face like it is on the rest of the body, particularly the belly or thighs. This means that if you receive an RF radiofrequency treatment on the skin, and it is focused deep, it can reduce facial fat. However, the effect varies widely from none to medium.
