Smoothbeam Acne Therapy for Acne and Scars

Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgeon Serving Reston, D.C., Tysons Corner, Ashburn, Virginia.

The Smoothbeam Laser is an advanced non-invasive laser treatment for acne, acne scars, and fine lines.  The laser uses a combination of skin heating and cooling to selectively heat the middle layer of the skin.  By heating the middle layer (dermis) it is possible to gently treat a variety of skin problems. Smoothbeam Acne Therapy for Acne and Scars has low chance of side effects. The most common side effect is mild redness in spots lasting about a few hours. Rare side effects can include blistering or color changes. Scarring is extremely rare, but possible with any treatment of the skin. Even though the laser is cutting edge technology, there is a chance it may not sufficiently treat your skin problem.

Prep for Treatment

It is highly recommended that prior to treatment you should purchase an over the counter numbing cream called Recticare (4 or 5 percent). For best results, 90 minutes prior to treatment rub in a thin layer of the Recticare cream and then immediately apply a generous layer of cream to the entire treatment area. Thirty minutes prior to treatment re-apply cream to the skin in a super thick layer (like a mask). It is better to leave the cream on too long, than not long enough.


At Wellmedica we provide Smoothbeam Acne Therapy for Acne and Scars. A series of treatments are usually recommended for acne, acne scars and wrinkles. After four treatments active acne is usually 70 percent reduced on average. Scars and wrinkles are improved by a mild to moderate degree. In addition, oil production is reduced. The results are long lasting. Research has indicated that acne stays 70 percent better for two years or more after a series of four treatments. More treatments tend to be more beneficial, although most patients are satisfied with four.

Patient Testimonial

“At 31, I had unremitting cystic acne, and nothing I tried got rid of it or even slowed it down: not antibiotics, not microdermabrasion, not birth control pills. Then I read about Smoothbeam and found Dr. Ali, and meeting her was one of the single best things that has ever happened to me. After 5 full-face treatments with her Smoothbeam laser not only did my breakouts completely stop, but the super oiliness of my complexion was reversed. The pitted scarring that I thought would prevent me from having a normal, happy life was erased. Dr. Ali and her Smoothbeam treatments truly changed my life.”

“Dr. Dima is very knowledgeable and very compassionate. She always makes me feel like I’m a priority and makes me so comfortable about my treatments. I think she would be great for teenagers and their skin issues and I would recommend any of my family to go see her.” *

– Kendra

“Dr. Ali not only fixed the physical appearance of my scar, but healed the psychological and emotional scar it caused. She  genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her patients and I trust her implicitly.” *

– B. Paget

“Dr. Ali is not only a beautiful, highly intelligent woman but also an amazing healer. She treated my face, ravaged over time byrosacea, coupled with multiple broken facial blood vessels and transformed what was ruddy, red and sometimes purple hued skin into a clearcomplexioned healthy and totally makeup free face, and I thank her most graciously.” *

– Chris D.

“I think Dr. Ali is very honest and upfront. I didn’t feel I had to get 10 opinions before making a decision. I never feel pressured. Everyone is professional and top notch, the type of people you want to work with. I think the whole office atmosphere is wonderful, I feel friendly with everyone that works there and I love the products. When you don’t come often you feel guilty. It’s usually a family affair to come see Dr. Ali; it’s me, my daughter and granddaughter, it’s a 2 hour drive so we make a day of it.” *

– Bonnie P.

“When I see Dr. Ali I am treated superbly in everyway, I would not go anywhere else! I wish my family lived locally so they could see her too.” *

– M. Stewart
