Cosmetic injectables are now the go to treatment for those desiring to eliminate moderate to severe wrinkles, and achieve smooth, youthful skin. But is there a way to treat deep wrinkles more effectively than with injectables.
Although cosmetic injectables are a popular way to reverse the effects of age and sun damage, laser skin resurfacing is also an effective alternative that can give you great results.
Laser skin resurfacing for deep wrinkles
Laser skin resurfacing refines the upper layers of the skin to reduce the appearance of facial lines. The intense laser energy precisely heats the skin and removes the outer layer. This results in cell regeneration, and also causes the collagen fibers in the dermal layer to contract, which makes the skin tighter and smooths out wrinkles.
Laser skin resurfacing can reduce the appearance of smile lines, frown lines, and lines around the mouth. The treatment time may range from 1-2 hours, depending on the extent of the area being treated.
There is usually some pain and bruising in the days following the procedure, as well as slight redness. These side-effects can last between 7-14 days.
Sciton Contour TRL
One of the most effective laser technologies available for treating deep wrinkles, is the Sciton Contour TRL system. The Sciton Contour TRL is a highly customizable laser treatment that gives the doctor the flexibility to control how deep the laser beam penetrates the skin.
