Laser for Wrinkles? What You Need to Know
- Posted on: Jun 30 2019
Even though Botox and fillers are one of the most popular noninvasive ways to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, we have another method that we may recommend: laser. The unique thing about laser is that it can be used to treat just about anything from vaginal rejuvenation to, you guessed it, wrinkle reduction. While studying at Harvard, Dr. Khatri was one of the first to explore specific modes of laser specifically to treat fine lines. Let’s take a closer look at a few of the basics of both laser resurfacing and laser skin tightening.
What Is Laser Resurfacing?
One of the laser treatments that Dr. Khatri likes to use on patients is laser skin resurfacing. The theory behind this procedure is that once the skin is heated up to a certain temperature it will essentially be injured. Damaged skin is what signals’ your body’s natural response to heal itself; leaving you with more youthful, healthier skin in the process.
What Can Laser Resurfacing Treat?
One of the unique things about laser skin resurfacing is that it can be used to treat a variety of things including:
- Wrinkles around the eyes and mouth
- Volume Loss in your lower eyelid area.
- Blotchiness or brown spots
- Scars with discoloration and uneven tone on the surface of your skin
- You may have precancerous skin growths
What Can Laser Tighten Treat?
As we age, it’s natural for our skin to lose collagen and elastin in it which can lead to a variety of cosmetic concerns like a loss of volume. Laser tightening helps to tighten the skin by increasing the collagen and getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles.
