Fine Lines and Wrinkles

As we age, our skin loses some of its natural elasticity as collagen production and cell turnover slows down. This leads to lines and wrinkles, as our skin can’t bounce back from our daily lip lines and wrinkles treatment san diegoexpressions. Some of the most common wrinkles that men and women are concerned about include crow’s feet around the eyes, laugh lines, frown lines, and lip lines. At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, we understand your concerns and offer a wide range of lasers which can help fine line reduction and wrinkle removal. With over 40 lasers to choose from, our board-certified dermatologists are able to customize a unique anti-wrinkle treatment plan for every patient.

Some of the lasers that we use to help with facial lines treatment include:

  • CoolTouch III
  • Fraxel Re:pair
  • Fraxel Re:store Dual
  • Lumenis Active FX
  • Lumenis Deep FX
  • Sciton Profile
  • CoolTouch III

The CoolTouch 2 laser has been used for over a decade for wrinkle reduction. It is a painless laser treatment that stimulates the production of collagen without damaging any surrounding tissue. Because it is so gentle, a series of treatments is required for full results, but in the end you will be left with smoother, more youthful skin!

Fine Line Reduction

Injectable treatments such as neuromodulators and dermal fillers are some of the best means of reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Neuromodulators, include Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, and they are used to relax the muscles causing dynamic wrinkles, allowing the skin to rest and smooth out. Neuromodulators also serve the dual function of preventing future wrinkles.

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are better for deeper, static wrinkles. There are two main types of dermal fillers: hyaluronic acid gel fillers and collagen boosters. Hyaluronic acid gel fillers include Restylane, Juvederm, and Belotero, and are mainly used for wrinkles such as laugh lines and marionette lines. They can also be used underneath the eyes to reduce the appearance of dark circles.

It’s important to always visit a skilled and experienced dermatologist who knows exactly where to place injections for the best results and also what type of filler is best for your individual case. At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, our dermatologists understand that no treatment is one size fits all, and each of our patients is unique and requires a custom treatment plan.

Fraxel Re:pair and Re:store Dual

Fraxel is one of the leading names in laser skin resurfacing, and they offer multiple lasers which can help with wrinkle and fine line reduction. The Fraxel Re:pair is an aggressive CO2 laser which will transform your skin in just one treatment; however, it does require a longer period of recovery time than other lasers. If you don’t have the time to spare for recovery, Fraxel Re:store Dual is a gentler laser which will achieve the same results over a series of sessions with no downtime required.

Lumenis Active/Deep FX

The Lumenis Active/Deep FX is a combination of Active FX and Deep FX. When used together they offer a full range of fractional resurfacing: Deep FX offers a deeper micro-ablative treatment to target deeper wrinkles and acne scarring, while Active FX offers a large superficial spot treatment targeting sun damage as well as tone and texture. With Total FX we are able to achieve maximum results in collagen production and skin smoothing and brightening in one single treatment.

Sciton Profile

The Sciton Profile is unique in that it allows dermatologists to customize their own system. Each laser can be added to the base system so that we can have separate lasers for acne or wrinkles within the same system. Whether you are looking for crow’s feet reduction or laugh line removal in San Diego, we use the Sciton for reduction of fine lines and wrinkles through both ablative and non-ablative means, depending on the patient’s needs.
