The fact is; that the effects of the sun, the environment, and let’s face it, time, eventually catches up with all of us. But don’t despair, laser wrinkle removal works, and it could be a great solution for you!

Of course, to make a balanced decision, it’s always good to weigh up the pros and cons.

So join us as we take a closer look at exactly what are the pros and cons of laser wrinkle removal.

How Laser Wrinkle Removal Works

The PicoWay Resolve laser is a market leader for skin rejuvenation.

It works by stimulating the body’s own healing processes to repair your skin. The ultrashort laser pulses removed damaged skin cells. This sets in motion a process called neocollagenesis. 

Collagen is what keeps your skin plump and firm. The process of neocollagenesis stimulates the body to produce new collagen. By targeting certain areas with a laser, you benefit from increased collagen right where you want it!

This process helps to restore the smoothness of the skin and help it regain elasticity. It also works well for skin marks and discoloration.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

This will depend on your personal circumstances. Factors include: age, skin issues, and the depth of your wrinkles. 

You will likely begin to see a difference after your first treatment. After 4 treatments, there should be a very noticeable improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. 

The Pros of Laser Wrinkle Removal

Everyone would love to see an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that develop as we age. What are the advantages of laser wrinkle removal compared with other treatments?

It Works

The first pro of laser wrinkle removal is that it actually works.

It works by harnessing the body’s natural ability for healing. The body supplies the building blocks – the collagen proteins, which naturally plump out the wrinkles. This creates a smooth, natural glow that you cannot beat. 

It’s Quick

Can you really see improvements in just 40 minutes of treatment?

With laser wrinkle removal you can. Just four sessions of a minimum of ten minutes are all you need to start to see a real difference.

No need to take time off work! You can even schedule appointments during your lunch break. 

No Downtime

This form of wrinkle removal involves no downtime. No painful peels with long recovery treatments. No irritation from abrasion treatments.

The treatments take ten to fifteen minutes per session. You will need a minimum of four treatments. Depending on the condition of your skin, you may need more to gain the most benefit.

After the treatment, a cool washcloth or cold compress will be applied to the treated area to soothe and cool it. After that, a soothing cream called ‘A Soothing Touch’ helps to minimize any further discomfort.

Most people find that discomfort post-treatment is rare. Those who have a little discomfort find it fades within an hour.

Then you’re free to go about the rest of your day in complete comfort, with minimal disruption to your schedule!

Works on More Than Just Wrinkles

An amazing benefit of laser skin treatments is that they don’t just help with wrinkles. 

The California sun can lead to dark spots and uneven skin pigmentation developing. A course of laser skin treatments can help dark spots to fade away. It can even out your skin tone, giving a more balanced appearance. 

Laser skin treatments can even work on scars, such as acne scars and surgical scars! It can also reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. 

The Cons of Laser Wrinkle Removal

It’s clear that laser skin treatments are some of the best wrinkle solutions out there. But do these anti-aging treatments come with some drawbacks? Let’s take a look at a few cons of laser wrinkle removal. 

Increased Sensitivity to the Sun

After the treatment, your skin will be more sensitive to the powerful UV rays of the sun. So we recommend that you always wear sunscreen after treatment.

Actually in southern California, this is good practice all of the time to protect your skin from sun damage.

Results May Not Be Immediate

Some people may notice a difference after the first session. However, this type of wrinkle removal works by harnessing your body’s natural healing processes. That means that it can take time for you to see the difference.

Don’t despair if this is true in your case. Wait until you have had all four treatments. Then you will doubtless see the results you were looking for. 

Possible Skin Irritation

Many clients find that there is very little skin irritation after PicoWay Laser wrinkle treatments. However, in some cases, clients may develop redness, itching, or temporary bruising at the treatment site.

Also; areas that were pigmented may also appear discolored for short while. It is expected that these symptoms will all resolve within a week.
