Deliver Results as Individual as Your Patients

With the most versatile and advanced CO2 laser features, SmartSkin provides totally customizable CO2 skin renewel technology, resulting in more even tone, smoother texture, and markedly reduced wrinkles.

Expertly control the four key parameters to tailor your patient’s treatment:

  • Power
  • Dwell time
  • Pitch / spacing
  • Multipulse

With this unique level of customizable control, SmartSkin+ provides you with the versatility to effectively meet and exceed your patients’ expectations.


Customizable up to 30W to achieve the penetration, depth, and collateral thermal injury necessary to achieve the clinical results you and your patient desire. Displayed in mJ/spot to give you outstanding control over energy delivered.

Dwell Time

The pulse structure available on SmartSkin+ is specifically designed to optimize thermal coagulative zones, the foundation of neocollangenesis and fast healing.

  • A high peak power first phase rapidly ablates the tissue to minimize erythema.
  • An adjustable low power second phase lets you optimize the energy delivered to the thermal coagulation zone for tissue coagulation, resulting in new collagen production.

Intelligent Delivery, Scanning, and Versatility

SmartSkin offers:

  • MultiPulse Intelligent Delivery: adjustable depth of penetration up to 2 mm for treatment of deep wrinkles and proble areas.
  • Intelligent Scanning: three scan modes to help you minimize collateral energy and deliver up to 30 W of power.
  • Unmatched Versatility: five different scanning shapes; 38 different density settings for micro-ablation versatility; 4” handpiece for ablation, coagulation, and vaporization.

Microbeam Spacing

Adjustable density lets you expertly determine the amount of ablation delivered to achieve the clinical results and downtime expectations of your patient.

Multipulse Delivery

The intelligent Multipulse delivery system lets you select the number of pulse stacks, allowing you to fine tune the depth of treatment without having to increase power.

The versatility doesn’t stop there.  SmartSkin+ also provides multiple other options to customize your treatments to provide the best possible results:

  • Multiple scan modes to help you minimize collateral energy and further tailor treatments.
  • Multiple scan shapes to treat different parts of the anatomy.
  • A surgical handpiece for ablation, coagulation, and vaporization.

Before & After


SmartSkin gives you the versatility to perform light to aggressive treatment with a single laser. We can achieve 70 to 80% of the result we previously attained with ablative CO2 lasers, but with a much shorter recovery time and less likelihood of complications.
