SmoothGlo Q&A

What is SmoothGlo?

SmoothGlo is an advanced treatment that targets the three most significant signs of aging skin: volume, tone, and texture.

By tackling all three areas in one session, SmoothGlo can dramatically reverse the visible signs of aging, giving you a brighter, more youthful glow.

How does SmoothGlo work?

SmoothGlo combines Stellar M22™ IPL (intense pulsed light) photofacial therapy with Morpheus8™ radiofrequency microneedling to target age spots, brown and red spots, and discoloration of the skin. At the same time, SmoothGlo reduces fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, and other problems affecting your skin’s texture.


Photorejuvenation destroys unsightly pigment and blood-filled capillaries (tiny blood vessels). The radiofrequency microneedling regenerates natural substances like elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid that your skin needs to look plump, hydrated, and smooth.

Lumenis Stellar M22 IPL

Stellar M22 IPL delivers intense pulses of therapeutic light to destroy unsightly pigment and capillaries. The M22’s patented controlled pulsing technology minimizes your discomfort and maximizes your safety.

Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling

Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling creates micro-wounds in your skin. These tiny injuries promote a healing process that leads to the natural regeneration of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. The result is a smooth, glowing complexion.

What does SmoothGlo treatment involve?

SmoothGlo treatments last about one hour. Lehigh Valley Weight Loss recommends premedication to keep you calm and sleepy and numbing cream to anesthetize your skin. That combination delivers the most effective results with the least discomfort.

If you take advantage of premedication, you need to arrange transport home as you won’t be able to drive. You should also make sure you can relax for the rest of the day.

What should I expect after my SmoothGlo treatment?

You may experience some redness or swelling after your SmoothGlo treatment. That can last from several hours to a few days. You may also see and feel minor scabbing, but don’t worry, as the scabs naturally heal and drop off.

It’s extremely important to follow your provider’s post-care instructions after a SmoothGlo treatment for the best results. Stay hydrated, keep out of direct sunlight, and use sunscreen and proper skin care consistently.

Many patients see visible improvements right away. For the best and longest-lasting results, Lehigh Valley Weight Loss recommends a package of four SmoothGlo treatments spaced four weeks apart.
