What is the difference between SMAS lifting and laser resurfacing in comparison

What is the difference between SMAS lifting and laser resurfacing is a very common question. You need to understand the main thing – these are procedures for hardware and laser rejuvenation. Despite the fact that at first glance they seem similar, they are completely different procedures.

In order to make it easier for you to understand which procedure to choose, experienced doctors of our clinic have prepared for you a comparative characteristic of SMAS lifting and laser resurfacing.

What should a patient choose: SMAS lifting or laser resurfacing? The specialists of Coollaser Clinic will help us to understand the intricacies and differences.

Laser resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is a fast and effective way to rejuvenation and beauty for a long time.

  1. Scars and scar tissues
  2. Pigmentation
  3. The first signs of aging
  4. The skin has lost its elasticity
  5. ‘’Expression’’ lines around lips and eyes

The principle of laser resurfacing is the dead cells that absorb the laser light and evaporate. The process leaves no scars or burns.

The laser beams heat and vaporize the upper layer of the epidermis, allowing young cells to regenerate and grow.


  1. Oncology
  2. Pregnancy
  3. Lactation
  4. Herpes
  5. Fresh tan
  6. Viral diseases
  7. Infections

The result of laser resurfacing is smooth, radiant skin. Timely removal of the stratum corneum allows young cells to grow and regenerate.

1 procedure about 90 min

Impact depth – superficial

The maximum result is already after 1 procedure

Rejuvenation effect – lasts up to 2 years.

Tightening area – face and neck

Rehabilitation – not required; on day 3, the crusts go away.

Fractional resurfacing gives excellent rejuvenation results: mimic wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eyes are smoothed out. Laser resurfacing is called fractional because of the tiny round traces or fractions that remain immediately after the procedure and quickly disappear.

SMAS lifting

SMAS lifting Altera is a modern analogue of plastic surgery. The non-invasive facelift quickly and effectively removes the double chin, removes flews and eliminates the first signs of aging.

Skin tightening occurs as a result of exposure to ultrasound on the tissue.

  1. Flew
  2. Double chin
  3. Floated oval face
  4. Drooping lips and cheeks
  5. Ptosis of the upper eyelid
  6. The first signs of aging

The essence of the skin tightening process is the powerful effect of ultrasound at a depth of 8 mm. Just 1 ultrasonic lifting procedure gives an amazing, visible result.

1 procedure about 90 min.

Impact depth – from 1.5 to 8 mm

Maximum result in 3-6 months

Rejuvenating effect – lasts up to 2 years

Lift zones – face, neck, décolleté, abdomen, arms and legs, the area around the eyes.

Rehabilitation – not required; after 1-2 days there may be swelling

Ultrasonic SMAS lifting has a complex effect. Non-surgical skin tightening acts on the dermis, adipose and muscle tissue and elastin fibers.


  1. Oncology
  2. Pregnancy
  3. Lactation
  4. Diabetes
  5. Implants
  6. Cuts and burns
  7. Wounds and rashes

Altera SMAS lifting can be performed on the face, décolleté, neck, arms and legs. Reviews for non-invasive lifting speak for themselves, just look at the photo Before and AFTER SMAS lifting:

  1. Tightens the upper eyelid (removes ptosis)
  2. Leaves skin firm and elastic
  3. Removes double chin
  4. Smoothing wrinkles and creases
