What Is SmoothGlo?

SmoothGlo is a revolutionary new procedure that has raised the bar for aesthetic treatments by delivering transformative results without surgery, scarring, or recovery time. SmoothGlo is a sequential treatment that combines two state-of-the-art therapies to improve overall skin texture, wrinkles, and pigmentation.

How Does SmoothGlo Work?

SmoothGlo uses two synergistic technologies developed by Lumenis, allowing you to reap multiple benefits in a single visit to our comfortable office.

Intense Pulsed Light

First, we use the IPL device to treat pigmentation concerns. IPL uses “photothermolysis,” which is when a special wavelength coagulates brown or red pigment, stimulating your body to get rid of discoloration and produce more collagen. IPL is excellent for addressing vascular lesions and conditions such as broken capillaries and rosacea.

RF Microneedling

RF microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, can resolve multiple concerns, including skin laxity, wrinkles, and even scarring. It does so by creating controlled micro-injuries with fractionated needles and delivering heat energy into the dermal layer. The heat pulse, which is up to 167 degrees Fahrenheit, stimulates fibroblast activity, thus resulting in the natural production of hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen. These all contribute to overall skin tightening and rejuvenation.

What Are the Benefits of SmoothGlo?

When performed in sequence, the two-step treatment provides more comprehensive advantages than the two would separately, leaving your skin smoother, brighter, and firmer over time.


  • Multifunctional treatment: IPL technology removed unwanted pigmentation, while radiofrequency microneedling regenerates collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid for smoother, tighter, more radiant skin.
  • Fast treatment times: Simultaneously address multiple skin concerns with a brief in-office appointment that requires minimal downtime.
  • Safe: SmoothGlo works well for various skin tones, including darker ones.
  • Minimal side effects: When performed by an experienced provider, the risks and complications are extremely low.
  • Painless: Most patients can relax and have a comfortable SmoothGlo treatment. You can request topical numbing cream if you have sensitive skin or are worried about discomfort.


Am I a Good Candidate for SmoothGlo?

You are a good candidate for SmoothGlo if you are unhappy with skin pigmentation, laxity, texture, or lost volume and would like to rejuvenate your appearance without surgical intervention. You should be in good overall health and not prone to eczema, psoriasis, or autoimmune flare-ups. Don’t take prescription or over-the-counter blood thinners, which can heighten your chances of bleeding and bruising.


To learn if SmoothGlo is right for you, schedule a consultation with us at Aesthetically Yours. We’ll examine your skin, answer any questions you might have, and explain the treatment in more depth. If SmoothGlo is not ideal for your aesthetic goals, we can always recommend another treatment to safely and successfully revitalize your complexion.

What to Expect From a SmoothGlo Treatment

First, our certified skin expert will assess your skin type and determine the intensity and depth of your concern. Then, they’ll create a personalized treatment plan to ensure the best results possible.

By request, we will provide a topical numbing cream to help prevent any discomfort. The first treatment will be IPL. After cleansing your skin, your provider will apply a gel to transmit the light and keep you cool throughout the experience. Your skin expert will then glide the laser handpiece over the targeted area. You may hear clicking as the laser targets the hyperpigmentation spots in your skin, breaking apart the melanin for your body to absorb. After the IPL phase, the provider will gently cleanse the treatment area with soap and water and dry it thoroughly.

The next step in the treatment is RF microneedling. Your skin expert will use a disposable tip with ultra-thin electrodes and use them to create tiny wounds. These microscopic injuries act as channels for the radiofrequency energy and beneficial serum to reach deep within the skin’s layers where the damage is the worst. After the treatment, your provider will apply a cooling mist for comfort and to keep your skin moisturized.

What to Expect After a SmoothGlo Treatment

Your skin will feel warm for a few hours afterward. You may experience redness and mild swelling for up to four days. You can also expect minor scabbing, which will naturally heal and shed a week or two later. To avoid scarring, do not scratch or pick at these scabs, and keep your skin moisturized. Your overall skin texture may feel dry and scratchy, but these typical side effects are no cause for concern and will resolve on their own after a week.

Please avoid sun exposure for at least a week after your treatment and discontinue the use of harsh chemicals like retinol. We recommend using gentle, non-abrasive cleansers, followed by a rich moisturizer. If you need any recommendations on aftercare products or how to care for your skin, we’ll be happy to listen to your questions and make the appropriate suggestions.
