From the moment your walk into our shabby-chic inspired office, you can tell things are decidedly low-key at Smooth Skin Centers. Beth and Patrick take special care to make you feel welcome, comfortable and confident. You'll find the team to be friendly experts who take genuine pleasure in helping people look and feel their best.
Meet Beth Smart, Smooth Skin Founder

Beth loves using the light of lasers and the light of the world to influence people in a positive way.

She is married to her soul mate, Patrick, and is grateful that she and her family are happy, healthy, safe, and sound.

THE STORY BEHIND THE DANDELION.
You may have noticed a dandelion or two on this website.
That's because we believe the image of a dandelion perfectly reflects the life-changing work we do at Smooth Skin Centers. While some folks consider dandelions a pesky weed, the dandelion flower itself is symbolic of growth, warmth, healing, radiance, and illumination. It also symbolizes youth and joy - most of us have blown on a dandelion watched in delight as the fluffy seeds magically floated in the air, taking flight to a new beginning.
Youth and joy. Illumination and radiance. Growth and healing. This is the work we are honored to do at Smooth Skin Centers. After successfully helping people feel comfortable in their own skin since opening our doors in 2006, it's our deepest hope is that we’ll be able to help you do the same.

MEET OUR LASER LINE-UP
Our medical lasers are what set us apart from other cosmetic laser clinics and doctors’ offices.
We use only FDA-approved lasers manufactured by the Candela Corporation…the world-wide leader in medical and aesthetic laser technology. A 40+-year old company, Candela’s lasers have the highest records in safety and effectiveness.
The GentleYag performs three different procedures: permanent hair removal, collagen stimulation, and blue spider vein erasing. The laser creates a beam of high-intensity light that penetrates deep into skin tissue where it delivers a controlled amount of targeted therapeutic heat. Candela’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD™) technology protects the upper layers of your skin with a cooling burst of cryogen. Together, the long-pulse laser and DCD cooling offer optimal treatment with minimal side effects.
The GentleLase, 755 nm Alexandrite works tirelessly to get rid of unwanted hair on any part of the body. Effective on all hair color, its specialty is lighter colored hair, including blond. The large spot, deliverable fluence, and skin protection afforded by the patented, cryogen-based DCD system make the GentleLase an especially easy-to-use, safe, and comfortable laser. This laser is also famous for erasing brown spots and age spots. The energy targets the color of the spot and destroys it. Be prepared to be amazed!
