Laser Treatments for Wrinkle Removal
The gold standard lasers we offer to treat wrinkles include Fraxel Re:Store laser and the fractional CO2 laser. Laser treatments will regenerate collagen growth and kickstart the body’s healing process to iron out any wrinkles and fine lines on the face. The Fraxel laser is particularly effective at treating fine lines around the eye area (crow’s feet). Laser treatments will have much more impact on your crow’s feet than an eye cream could ever do.
Which Laser Treatments for Aging Skin Work?
Here’s a look at some of the best laser treatments for fine lines and wrinkles. Keep in mind that ultimately your dermatology provider will decide which laser is best for your specific skin type.
- This non-invasive anti-aging procedure uses advanced Fraxel lasers to treat wrinkles and lines on the face, and damaged skin throughout the body. The layers of the skin regenerate more collagen naturally in the body, and rejuvenate problem areas on the patient. As the Fraxel laser treatment involves a heat-generating laser, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the skin area before the treatment takes place. This cosmetic procedure will not take long, but recovery can last up to two weeks, during which time the skin may look bronzed and darkened as the dead cells start to flake off the face, leaving behind a layer of younger-looking, healthier skin.
- Clear + Brilliant: For very early sun damage and superficial wrinkles, the Clear + Brilliant Laser is a gentle infrared fractionated non-ablative and is an ideal starter laser with no downtime. This is the perfect laser treatment for millennials, as it addresses the very first signs of aging in a non-aggressive way.
- Fractional CO2 Laser: With the ability to rejuvenate appearances and create a smoother complexion, the Fractional CO2 Laser, using microbeams which penetrate deep into the skin, stimulates collagen growth and helps the body to repair damaged cells and ultimately create new skin. Increasingly popular for treating everything from acne scarring to sun damage to wrinkles, the fractional CO2 laser is a non-invasive treatment that really can perform.
- Laser Genesis: Rivalling the feel of a luxurious facial, the Laser Genesis treatment is a heat-based process spurs collagen growth and helps repair damaged skin. There is zero downtime or discomfort in a Laser Genesis treatment. You will need a series of laser treatments (approximately 3-6) to see the full results, but the payoff is incredible in the end. Glowing and gorgeous skin with no downtime!
