Non-Surgical Smoothlase Can Improve Signs of Aging
No matter how well you care for your skin, signs of aging are inevitable and can have an adverse effect on your self-esteem and overall appearance. Fortunately, at Periodontal Associates, LLC in Englewood, NJ, we offer a state-of-the-art solution that can help you look younger and feel more confident without the need for a face lift or other surgical procedure. Smoothlase™ is a laser treatment that can increase collagen production around the mouth and cheeks to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging. In collaboration with Dr. Chetan Patil, Dr. Pooja Patil provides safe, effective skin rejuvenation treatments. She can administer this non-invasive procedure using an advanced tool that is strictly applied within the mouth for a gentle, non-surgical improvement.
What is Smoothlase?
Smoothlase is a facial rejuvenation procedure that utilizes the Fotona LightWalker® ATS system. The laser is applied to the skin within the mouth, tightening the tissue from the inside out.

This intraoral procedure is an excellent option for patients with mild to moderate wrinkles and sagging who wish to avoid surgery while still achieving impressive anti-aging results.
What to Expect During Treatment
Prior to beginning your procedure, you will be provided with protective eyewear. Each session generally lasts about 30 minutes, during which Dr. Patil will gently apply the laser to the desired treatment areas. As this is a non-invasive procedure, patients can expect a comfortable experience without the need for sedation. However, you may experience a warm sensation and minor sensitivity. There is no downtime after the procedure so you can easily fit this treatment into your regular schedule. After your procedure, it is normal to expect mild tingling, swelling, and tenderness for a few days.

Typically, it is recommended that patients undergo multiple treatments to achieve the best results. Patients should wait for at least three weeks between each session to allow new collagen to form. Unlike fillers, which often provide noticeable changes within just a few days, Smoothlase provides gradual results that are long-lasting. With each treatment, additional collagen will be established, creating a more youthful, healthier-looking appearance.
