Natura Skin Clinic uses SmartXide Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment as a safe, effective way to treat sun damage, uneven pigmentation, wrinkles, poor texture, large skin pores, sun spots, brown spots, acne scars, surgical scars, melasma and stretch marks.

Proven results with Smartxide

SmartXide is a carbon dioxide laser that stimulates rejuvenation by targeting the area with a small wand-like device. It’s the very latest in tissue rejuvenation technology.

This new technology gives fantastic proven results at Natura but without the discomfort and downtime of previous laser machines.

Unlike other CO2 lasers, the SmartXide removes a customised pattern of thousands of microscopic ‘dots’ rather than the entire skin surface. The high-energy laser causes the outer layers of the epidermis to peel away as the skin heals. The laser also heats the dermis, which stimulates the production of new collagen.

As the new skin cells develop, the face becomes smoother, firmer and more youthful.


Quick and precise

The SmartXide allows our doctors to treat the whole face and neck in approximately half an hour. The treatment is precise and fast; patients don’t require general anaesthetic, just an anaesthetic cream that numbs the area making the treatment virtually pain-free. SmartXide can be used either as a treatment on its own or as part of our multi-layer skin rejuvenation.

Post-treatment redness lasts a few days, with results noticeable after a week or so, results continue to develop for 3-6 months. The number of treatments required varies from patient to patient. This is something that you will discuss with your Natura doctor during your initial, free Skin Evaluation.

The SmartXide results surpass those of other laser treatments on the market and far exceed traditional crystal microdermabrasion and chemical peels.

Our doctor answers your questions


  • How many treatments do you recommend having?

    We recommend three SmartXide laser skin resurfacing treatments, with 6 week intervals between treatments to achieve the most effective results.


  • How long does skin resurfacing last?

    Depending on the individual, the results should last between 8-12 months.


  • How long does the procedure take?

    Total treatment time is around one hour: anaesthetic cream must be applied 30-45 minutes beforehand and the treatment itself last around 30 minutes.


  • Are there any additional options you might discuss with me?

    Yes. We may advise you on Skin Rehydration to add volume and rehydrate skin


  • Is there anything I should be aware of?

    There will be significant redness; slight puffiness and swelling may occur. However, this downtime is considerably reduced by using specially developed post-laser skin regenerator creams and concealers such as Lycogel.

Vilma Bretherton

Vilma Bretherton, aged 63 years, is a retired mother and grandmother. She came to Natura Skin Clinic looking to find out more about non-surgical treatments.

“We had booked a cruise and as I had recently become a grandmother I had started to feel older.”

“I have always enjoyed travelling. My husband and I try to go away as much as we can. We had booked a cruise and as I had recently become a grandmother I had started to feel older. I had heard from my friends about skin peels and thought about it in the past, so when my first grandchild was born I decided to book a skin evaluation at Natura Skin Clinic.”

“I went along to the clinic not really knowing what the Doctor would recommend. I knew I didn’t want to drastically change my appearance. I wanted my family to think I still looked like me, just the best version of me! So it was important that the results were natural looking. After talking with the Doctor I felt like I was in good hands and had a clear explanation of how the treatments work and the procedure itself. I went ahead with the SmartXide Skin Peel.”

“My skin was looking refreshed and younger a week later.”

“I arrived at the clinic and was shown to the preparation room. Its not at all clinical. I sat on a big comfortable armchair and had a cup of tea. There was a television in there too so I relaxed and watched Saturday Kitchen whilst a special cream numbed my skin. I then had the treatment. Initially it felt a bit strange but the doctor kept talking to me and I felt assured. I got used to it after the first couple of minutes and I was ready to leave soon after. A few days after my face was little red but I was given special rehydration cream and Ice Masks which were amazing. My skin was looking refreshed and younger a week later.”
