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

We know how difficult it is to choose between similar laser treatments. Today we will prove that SMAS lifting and laser resurfacing differ significantly from each other.

We care about the health of our patients. That is why we recommend consulting a specialist before any procedure. An experienced doctor will determine the needs of your skin, its type and condition, as well as possible contraindications.

Coollaser Clinic in the center of Kyiv on Pechersk will provide you with the maximum result and comfort of each skin tightening procedure.

SMAS lifting and laser resurfacing have fundamental differences in the type of impact and result, however, each of the methods will give you youth and beauty!

Psoriasis stem cell treatment

Currently, cell therapy is used to treat a wide range of diseases, and psoriasis is no exception. In recent years, significant progress has been made in understanding the causes of the disease. However, the exact development mechanism is still unknown. In 2017, Polish scientists concluded that the dysregulation of the inflammatory response in psoriasis may be due to dysfunction of some stem cells.

Робила лазерне шліфування шкіри обличчя у лікаря Юлії. Все сподобалось, результат хороший. Обов‘язково прийду ще до неї взимку) Дякую за гарний сервіс♥️
Пришла в куллазер на фонофорез после операции в другой клинике к Любви Сергеевне и стала постоянным клиентом. За два месяца процедур с моя ситуация значительно улучшилась. Доктор также правильно подобрала мне уход для лица и процедуры по моему типу кожи. Далее попала к Сергею Григорьевичу и тоже осталась супер довольна. Очень помог мне решить мою проблему, современный подход, ответственно относится к пациентам, всегда идет на встречу, за что огромное спасибо. Отдельное спасибо администратору Алене, всегда на связи, всегда находит подходящее время для записи. Весь персонал доброжелательный, улыбчивый - всегда приятно быть гостем.
Very good clinic and equipments. English spoken. Yulya was very professional and did an excellent job on my face in order to remove the imperfections. Highly recommande for procedures.

Юлечка Михайловна отличный специалист, доволен работой и результатом от двух процедур лазерная шлифовка (одна на средних, вторая на максимальных настройках) плюс плазмолифтинг, плюс микроигольчатый rf лифтинг. И также 2 процедуры rejuran s делал. Реабилитация 1 неделя, все процедуры делал летом, сгладились старые рубцы, новые- до 1 года практически ушли, можно конечно ещё улучшать, но в рекламе косметических средств сниматься не собираюсь, а визуальный результат меня вполне устраивает, так что очень рекомендую !)
