Laser Wrinkle Treatment

Laser wrinkle treatment is a non-invasive procedure that addresses all types of skin wrinkles using state-of-the-art laser technology. It delivers significant wrinkle removal by stimulating gradual skin regeneration through controlled damage to the base layers of the dermis. Unlike other wrinkle treatments, laser technology offers ultra-precise results, as well as shorter downtime and quicker recovery.

BEFORE & AFTER

WHAT IS LASER WRINKLE TREATMENT?

This treatment makes use of the Palomar Icon™ XD Aesthetic System, an FDA-approved cosmetic laser that targets wrinkles and other signs of aging on the face and body. It provides a near-painless alternative to surgical rejuvenation and offers a more natural option for achieving smoother, younger-looking skin.

WHY SHOULD I UNDERGO THIS PROCEDURE?

Wrinkles and fine lines are an inevitable part of the aging process, but they can also come about due to lifestyle habits such as smoking and excessive tanning. In most cases, other issues such as uneven skin tone, textural irregularities, and even loose skin may also be present. Laser wrinkle treatments can address a variety of skin concerns, which is why they are sometimes preferable to surgical rejuvenation treatments.

How does the laser work?

The Palomar Icon™ XD makes use of potent laser light technology to treat a wide variety of skin concerns on the face and body. The Skintel Melanin Reader determines the melanin density of the skin. This allows the Palomar Icon™ laser to use the most optimized settings for your specific skin type. It utilizes an ergonomically designed handpiece that emits intense pulsed light, which targets the affected skin surface to reveal newer and better-looking skin.

Immediately after the laser procedure, the doctor will apply a cooling serum and ample sunscreen to soothe the skin after treatment and protect it from harmful UV rays, which can cause significant hyperpigmentation.
