5 out of 5 stars Smoothbeam Laser

Smoothbeam is Awesome for Oily Acne Prone Skin - Austin, TX

The aesthetician who did it was incredible and experienced, so I had no burns or bad side effects from it. She also did a light peel afterwards and gave my face a pass with a cryogen freezing misty spray, which felt great. She paid a lot of attention to my skin and really worked hard to get it clear again. The office I went to has a great deal on Smoothbeam, charging only $200 a treatment, and when you buy a package of 5 they also give you 15% off, bringing the total for 5 full treatments to $850. So that's awesome.
