Laser Wrinkle Reduction: The Pros and Cons


What happens in Laser Wrinkle Reduction?

Wrinkles are the grooves formed on the face which become more noticeable as the collagen in the skin reduces with age. To reverse or remedy a wrinkled look the best approach is to increase the collagen in the skin and this is what the laser does. It serves as a stimulant to collagen production and helps the skin gain more collagen thereby lessening the impact of the wrinkles. The procedure takes barely any time and there is no real break in a person’s normal routine. A patient can go back to their full daily routine including application of makeup and lotions. The professionals at A New Image are there to discuss with you the best procedures and options for your individualized skin health.

Who should try Laser Wrinkle Reduction?

The procedure is fairly easy and there are no known risks or side effects to the process and so doctors do recommend it to any patient concerned about the effect of wrinkles. It is not a very painful procedure, unlike some other laser treatments and  is accessible to many people. However, it is worth noting that the sooner this is done the better the results will be – it is also true that a younger person is likely to get the full benefit of it more than an older patient. Overall health and skin condition do affect the efficacy of the treatment.

The other thing to keep in mind when one is considering laser treatment is the reality that laser takes time. The first treatment session may seem like a disappointment if one does not set realistic expectations.

Laser wrinkle reduction will not work for very deeply grooved wrinkles and a face lift may be necessary in those cases.

What is the Downside?

Laser wrinkle reduction is a marvelous use of modern technology for cosmetic enhancement but it is not a magic wand and patients need to acknowledge this. The patient should talk in detail with the laser practitioner before the process to educate themselves and set realistic goals.

While it is not invasive surgery, it is important to note that it is a procedure that is altering the natural order of things.
