Here at The Dental Standard, we are happy to offer our patients a new and innovative option for facial rejuvenation – SmoothLase®.
SmoothLase is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that uses fractional lasers to stimulate the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin around the mouth, chin and lips.
SmoothLase is safe and effective, using the reliable precision and energy of lasers to stimulate the regrowth of new collagen over time without causing harm to the surface of the skin.
SmoothLase is all done from inside the mouth and there are no incisions or scars like with other surgical facial rejuvenation procedures.
Smoothlase naturally and gradually lifts and tightens several areas of the face in order to reduce sagging, fine lines and other signs of aging.
SmoothLase can reverse signs of aging in areas such as:
Benefits of SmoothLase include:
Smoothlase works from inside the mouth delivering laser energy targeting the deep skin tissues where collagen lives. The laser breaks down some of the deep layers of tissue
in order to stimulate new, stronger and tighter collagen to grow. This in turn naturally and gradually produces a lifted, tighter and more youthful appearance of the face.

Are you interested in lips that will give you a more youthful and attractive appearance? Do you want fuller but natural looking lips without going through the discomfort of injections?
Read on because LipLase may be just what you’re looking for.
It’s no secret that plump, fuller lips are deemed more attractive and youthful to most. With age, unfortunately, our lips among other areas of the body start to lose collagen and fat which can be an unwanted sign of aging.
Here at The Dental Standard we are happy to provide a non-invasive, safe and effective way to get fuller lips without the use of needles or injectables – LipLase.
LipLase uses the efficacy and precision of lasers to enhance the appearance of the lips by stimulating the body to produce more collagen. Collagen is the component of the skin that gives the skin tissue structure and volume. The LipLase lasers target the deeper skin layers where collagen lives and uses heat to activate new collagen to form. In the lips, more collagen means fuller, smoother and more youthful lips.
LipLase is performed within the mouth as well as outside on the lips. No needles are involved and it’s a very comfortable 30 minute procedure for most. Some heat is felt from the laser but otherwise there are minimal to no side effects like the bruising, swelling, redness or other reactions often experienced by those who receive fillers.
The results from LipLase are more gradual since they rely on the body’s own natural process. Subtle differences are noticeable within the first few weeks but full results may not be obvious until about 6 weeks. To maintain the look you will want to complete touch-up treatments about every 3 months.
Are you ready for natural-appearing, fuller and more youthful lips without needles or foreign substances?
Contact us here at The Dental Standard in Chicago to learn more about this new and innovative way to rejuvenate your lips and your look safely and effectively.
At The Dental Standard we know how vital a good night’s sleep is for optimal health and wellbeing. This is why we use Fotona’s NightLase® therapy to increase our patient’s quality of sleep.
NightLase is a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment that reduces snoring and the effects of mild to moderate sleep apnea.
NightLase works by tightening the tissues inside the mouth with gentle, laser pulses. The laser penetrates the oral tissue with heat causing contraction of collagen making the tissue tighter and less “floppy”.
Optimal results occur with 3 treatment sessions separated by 6 weeks each. Results last for about 1 year at which time the therapy can be repeated if desired.
If you or a loved one struggle with sleep apnea and/or snoring, ask our staff here at The Dental Standard about NightLase. We love that NightLase offers a gentle and effective way for our patients to regain a good night’s rest.
