Glass Skin Facial

Achieve a flawless “glass skin” look with this skin rejuvenating laser treatment.

If you have not encountered the glass skin phenomenon yet, you most likely will soon. Born from Korean beauty trends, the glass skin look is poreless, blemish-free, and perfectly smooth. Most guides to achieving this look recommend an extensive skincare routine. However, a Glass Skin Facial with the LaseMD Ultra™ laser can get you closer to that goal by smoothing and perfecting your skin for that luminous, translucent glow. 

What is a Glass Skin Facial With LaseMD Ultra™?

Manhattan Aesthetics is proud to offer the Glass Skin Facial, an effective way to erase hyperpigmentation, smooth textural issues, and shrink pores. This treatment, alone or in combination with a traditional glass skin skincare routine, can help you achieve this popular, flawless look. 


We recommend a Glass Skin Facial not just for those interested in this beauty trend but for anyone who wants to address a wide range of skin concerns with a pain-free, non-invasive treatment. The LaseMD Ultra™ is a highly customizable laser that provides results on a deep level without harming the skin’s surface.

How Does a Glass Skin Facial Work?

A Glass Skin Facial is a laser treatment that targets the deeper layers of the skin while leaving the surface intact. It creates tiny areas of microdamage deep in the dermis to trigger a process of cellular renewal and rejuvenation. Cells called fibroblasts respond to this damage by increasing their collagen production, making your skin firmer and more even. 

Because it triggers cellular renewal, a Glass Skin Facial brings healthy new cells to the skin’s surface to replace old, damaged ones. LaseMD Ultra™ is a non-ablative laser, meaning it does not remove or damage the outer layers of skin during the process. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Glass Skin Facial?

Most people can enjoy the benefits of a Glass Skin Facial. It is FDA-cleared and safe for all skin types and tones. Good candidates should have reasonable expectations since no single treatment or product can give you the full glass skin effect. This treatment is ideal for those who want to address a wide range of skin concerns for a smoother, clearer, more even appearance. 

You should not have a Glass Skin Facial if you have an injury, infection, or active skin condition in the treatment area. People with certain medical conditions may not be good candidates, so discuss these during your consultation. 

What is it Like Getting a Glass Skin Facial With LaseMD Ultra™?

Your Glass Skin Facial with LaseMD Ultra™ usually lasts 30 to 60 minutes. Your provider will apply a numbing cream before treatment to keep you from feeling discomfort, although some people report feeling tingling. While LaseMD Ultra™ is usually used on the face, it can also be used on the hands and body.

How Long Does it Take to See Results After a Glass Skin Facial?

You may start to see improvements in your skin within a few weeks after treatment. Your full results will develop over the next three months as your skin increases its collagen production. You will notice a steady increase in your skin’s firmness, smoothness, and clarity.

How Many Glass Skin Facial Treatments Will I Need?

The number of Glass Skin Facial treatments needed depends on your skin concerns and how you respond to treatment. Most people need two to three sessions to see their maximum benefits. Once your results have been achieved, one or two maintenance treatments a year can keep your skin looking flawless and even-toned. You can also boost your skincare routine with medical facials or gentle treatments like dermaplaning.

Is There Any Downtime With a Glass Skin Facial?

You can return to your usual activities after a Glass Skin Facial. However, your skin will look red for a few days, and you may notice some minor peeling. Avoid touching these areas or picking at peeling skin. This process is normal and helps your skin shed its dead and damaged outer layers. 


Your provider will instruct you on products to use after treatment, especially moisturizers for hydration and sunscreen for protection. Following their instructions will help you achieve that translucent glass skin look. They can also recommend other products to add to your daily routine for even more dramatic results.
