Laser Wrinkle Treatments

With age comes many things, one of the worst being wrinkles. Caused by everything from cigarette smoke to dreaded time, millions of dollars are spent on lotions and creams each year by consumers battling the onset of wrinkles. After years of cold creams that don't work and countless other products that cost more than they're worth, new procedures are offering another option to those afflicted with wrinkles. Laser wrinkle reduction uses the innovation of laser therapy to reduce the effect of deep lines. In just a few visits the results are clearly noticeable and patients are rediscovering years of youth left in their skin.

Many people seek out laser wrinkle reduction because of outside forces that have caused wrinkles early on. Smoke and environmental factors can cause lines to deepen and add many years to one's face. If wrinkles are a bother, it's best to get them taken care of as soon as possible. The older a person is tends to play a role in how well the procedure works. Younger patients will see a more dramatic improvement than patients well advanced in their years. The decrease of collagen in the skin is what leads to wrinkles. The laser acts by stimulating the production of new collagen.

Many laser treatments for wrinkles pose little risk to the skin. It's completely painless and harms the skin much less than other laser procedures like scar removal. It simply warms the skin and creates new collagen growth which will then fill in the wrinkles to reduce their depth and appearance. There is virtually no down time at all to this procedure and the patient experiences no loss in regular activity, even the use of makeup or lotion. Of course laser treatments require immense amounts of patience. In most cases results aren't obvious until a month or two after the treatments begin.

It's important to keep in mind that not all forms of wrinkles are treatable with the laser. A consultation with a reputable practitioner will help you to figure out if you may be a prime candidate for the laser. Deep skin fold wrinkles often have to be treated with more invasive procedures like a face lift. If you don't know where to find a good laser practitioner, ask your family doctor for a reference. It's one of the best places for a referral to a good, licensed cosmetic laser specialist. Take care to ensure that anyone you see is operating in a safe and legal manner.

The cost of laser wrinkle reduction is generally based on things like the type of wrinkles and how many return visits will be needed. Though the procedures can become quite expensive, most patients find it to be worth every penny upon seeing the results and the rejuvenation of collagen in their skin. Wrinkles are annoying and incredibly unnerving at times. Though we all must age, must we look as though we are? With laser wrinkle reduction there is no reason to live unhappy with the way you look. Take matters into your own hands and see the reality of change.
