Imagine subtracting 10 years from your face in as little as one hour. Today that’s a reality with facial rejuvenation laser technology. Appropriate for nearly all skin types, our suite of quick-recovery Denver laser procedures are ideal for treating problem areas such as fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmented brown sun spots, enlarged pores, and facial veins leaving your skin refreshed and with a more youthful appearance.
Smith Cosmetic Surgery uses industry-leading, non-invasive lasers for everything from general anti-aging facial applications to pinpointed acne and spider vein therapy.
Cynosure’s Smart Skin CO2 laser tackles brown spots and wrinkles and stimulates collagen; the Cynosure Elite is a powerful hyperpigmentation laser treatment; and the Lumenis M22 IPL device works well for mild pigmentation disorders, vascular lesions, and overall skin renewal.
Unlock your skin’s potential with the Lumenis® M22 Intense Pulsed Light Photo Facial. This customizable energy-based light treatment brings your skin back to a healthy, even tone with minimal to no downtime or discomfort. The damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays and environmental factors such as pollution and free radicals can result in hyperpigmented age spots, sun spots, and broken blood vessels.

This revolutionary laser technology is two treatments in one: laser skin resurfacing and deep skin rejuvenation. Soften wrinkles, reduce the appearance of pores, smooth uneven pigmentation, and much more. Best of all, after the “micro-ablative” Fractional CO2 procedure you’ll be able to apply makeup and return to your normal lifestyle in as little as five to seven days. Click here for more info.
Smith Cosmetic Surgery uses minimally invasive lasers to treat unsightly spider, and reticular veins. Spider veins or telangiectasis are clusters of tiny blood vessels that develop close to the surface of your skin. They are red, blue, or purple and have the appearance of spider webs. In addition, you can find spider vines on the face and legs. The laser vein therapy device selectively targets these small veins and damages them before they are absorbed by the body. Several sessions, typically six to nine, are typically required with a 6 -12-week interval in between.
Free yourself from unwanted hair and experience the pleasure of never having to shave, tweeze or wax again. Laser hair removal is a convenient, long-term solution to reduce or eliminate hair growing on the face and body. At Smith Cosmetic Surgery, we use the top-of-the-line Cynosure Elite MPX and Lumenis M22 Laser Systems. Both are safe and effective treatments for all skin types. Click here to learn more.
CO2 laser is the most effective treatment for wrinkles. This laser can be titrated between a fractional (smaller) dose and an ablative (stronger) dose for individual needs.
When patients opt for the fractional CO2 laser treatment, we perform this as an initial series of 3 sessions spread out with 6-8 weeks between treatments. Afterwards, many patients choose to have a maintenance treatment every 6-12 months to maintain their results and prevent fine lines and brown spots from surfacing. These signs of sun damage can occur many years afterwards, and makes maintenance treatment a beneficial option. With the ablative CO2 laser treatment, only one session is needed for treatment as this higher dose can treat the deeper skin layers. This treatment is typically done under twilight anesthesia.
Both Botox and lasers are great treatment options for wrinkles. Botox is best to relax the muscles that create wrinkles in the forehead, glabella (11 lines), and crow’s feet areas. Laser treatments can treat wrinkles in all areas of the face, neck, and decolletage. However, without Botox treatments, wrinkles in the forehead, crows feet, and glabella areas are likely to recur or remain due to the muscle movements that etched them in there in the first place.
After a fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatment, it takes about 3 to 5 days of social downtime when your skin will be pink and the old skin is flaking off. Often we have patients have a laser treatment on a Friday and they feel comfortable going back to work on Monday with just some slight pinkness that resembles getting a light sunburn.
The ablative CO2 laser is the best laser treatment for deep wrinkles. To treat deeper wrinkles you need the deeper layers of the skin to be treated which is best addressed with the ablative dose of a CO2 laser.
