Is there any scientific evidence that the palovia laser (for wrinkles around the eyes really works?

PaloVia Laser : One such article claims excellent results: http://www.Jaad.Org/article/s0190-9622(12)00143-0/abstract. There are very few case-controlled clinical trials to rely on, though. As with any home remedy, the claims always seem to be "the best thing since sliced bread." this is one case where i would read he blogs and see how other users have faired. ...Read more

What are the best laser treatments for wrinkles?

What are the best laser treatments for wrinkles?

Erbium / IPL: Most physicians who perform fully ablative deep laser resurfacing these days agree that erbium lasers offer a big advantage over co2 with respect to safety & complications. That being said, it probably matters who is delivering the laser treatment, what the anatomy is, and the set expectations, more so that the actual laser type. I also like ipl lasers as a safe option for skin rejuvenation. ...Read more

I got a home made tattoo 9 weeks ago & it looks a bit wrinkly & you can feel the lining. I plan on laser removal in a year. Will I be scarred after?

I got a home made tattoo 9 weeks ago & it looks a bit wrinkly & you can feel the lining. I plan on laser removal in a year. Will I be scarred after?

Laser tattoo removal: There is a reasonable risk for scarring with laser tattoo removal although the lasers have gotten very good in the last few years. The best approach for laser tattoo removal is "slow & low"... Low energy settings on the laser over several treatments (can take 8-12 treatments for some tattoos). Orange, yellow, red colors are more difficult - as is darker skin. Good idea to wait at least one year. ...Read more

Not scarred...: But you may not be able to get full removal of the tattoo as well. Home-grown tattoos may not come out as well as a professional tattoo since the ink may be deposited at different levels in the skin. The type of pigment also impacts the 'erasability.' a doctor with experience in tattoo removal will be able to give you an idea of how much improvement you can get. ...Read more

Instead of botox for a long horizontal forehead wrinkle, can a laser be focused along the inside of the line to then cause a scab, then heal?

Instead of botox for a long horizontal forehead wrinkle, can a laser be focused along the inside of the line to then cause a scab, then heal?

Dynamic wrinkle: the movement of the muscles in the forehead cause the wrinkles which are best treated with a neurotoxin. Laser therapy may reduce the line a bit but cannot achieve what a neurotoxin does. ...Read more

Does face laser to remove hair cause discoloration & dark pigmentation to the skin? Does it also cause wrinkles/weakness of the skin? Using since 2004

Does face laser to remove hair cause discoloration & dark pigmentation to the skin? Does it also cause wrinkles/weakness of the skin? Using since 2004

Not usually: BUT different people call different things lasers. If you have a darker skin type then IPL for example (which some call laser but is not) can cause post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Assuming you had the laser hair removal done professionally, ask the person who did it what they used and what can be done now about the pigmentation. Another type of laser (1064 NdYag) perhaps. Good luck! ...Read more

I had an ipl laser facial done and the technician did 5 swipes with the lazer and overnight i aged significantly with many new wrinkles, any help?

May Resolve Quickly: The most common mishaps are burns, blisters and pigmentation issues. Other than following up with the treating facility, my best advice would be to use a gentle moisturizer and wait a few days. This may all resolve quite quickly. ...Read more

Are laser surgery and chemical peels good for treating eye wrinkles ?

Are laser surgery and chemical peels good for treating eye wrinkles  ?

Yes: Depending on how bad the wrinkles and the cause, laser or peels can really help wrinkles. Some wrinkles may be better treated with Botox if they are the result of over-active muscles and other wrinkles by surgery if they are from too much skin. Your plastic surgeon can help you decide which is best. ...Read more

Skin : Skin fillers such as juvederm, Radiesse and Restylane (dermal fillers) are the mainstay products that most cosmetic surgeons are using these days to rejuvenate the area around the mouth. Dermabrasion (not microdermabrasion) is a surgical alternative but much more invasive. ...Read more

How does co2 laser resurfacing get rid of wrinkles and dark spots? I understand that the co2 laser damages the skin and forces it to heal itself. But i don't understand exactly how that gets rid of wrinkles and spots. .

How does co2 laser resurfacing get rid of wrinkles and dark spots? I understand that the co2 laser damages the skin and forces it to heal itself. But i don't understand exactly how that gets rid of wrinkles and spots.

.

This : This is a good question. Total fx laser resurfacing (co2 laser) vaporizes the soft tissues of the face to eliminate/reduce sun spots, decrease and remove lines and wrinkles as well as reducing pore size. This is through the production of a controlled injury to the papillary dermis (upper dermis), after which replacement of damaged tissues with new healthy, compact collagen takes place. One also sees a more homogenous complexion of the skin tone (color) and the reduction of telangiectasias (small red capillaries) due to this injury and tissue replacement. Optimal results are seen over a 90 – 120 day timeline. Be healthy and be well, james m. Ridgway, md. ...Read more

CO2 : Co2 laser resurfacing is high risk for an immunosuppressed patient because inflammation is a vital step in the healing process and because your ability to fight infection is less, co2 laser resurfacing is more likely to be complicated by scarring and infection. Since you have had an organ transplant and your immunosuppressive medications cannot be discontinued, co2 laser resurfacing is probably not worth the risk! ...Read more
