What is a laser wrinkle treatment?

At Pretty by Poulos, we are equipped with one of the gold standards in aesthetic medicine, the Sciton Profractional Laser. This device emits a specialized type of light energy in a narrow beam, creating tiny channels in the skin, leaving the surrounding skin intact for fast healing. Patient comfort is a primary concern, and this approach to skin rejuvenation achieves visible results, without the downtime of more invasive laser skin resurfacing treatments.

What can a laser treatment do for my skin?

Your laser skin rejuvenation treatment can smooth and soften the following facial skin concerns:

  • Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Creases
  • Sagging skin
  • Thin, aging skin
  • Sun damage
  • Melasma
  • Facial scars

How does a laser wrinkle treatment work?

You are unique – and so are your skin concerns. Our laser skin resurfacing device has the capacity to be fine-tuned to match your individual skin issues, sending light energy to various layers within the skin structure. As the energy enters the underlying skin layer, it creates very narrow channels in the skin, triggering skin regeneration from within, while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed for fast healing. The facial skin responds by producing higher levels of natural collagen and elastin – the natural supporting structure of youthful skin. As the days and weeks pass, you will see your skin becoming firmer, more supple, and evenly toned – pure beauty, at its best.

How many treatments will I need?

You may achieve the best results with a series of laser wrinkle smoothing treatments, which are milder, rather than a single treatment in which the entire upper skin layer is removed. Not only will this allow for a faster recovery time, but it is also more comfortable. You will see visible results after only one treatment, but for more extensive age-related skin damage, you may choose to undergo a series of treatments, spaced a few months apart, to achieve the optimal age-defying results.

Who is a good candidate for laser wrinkle treatments?

Good candidates for this treatment are those who want smoother, healthier, evenly toned skin, and are experiencing wrinkles, lines, creases, and facial skin that has lost some of its supple, firm quality. 

What is the treatment experience?

At Pretty by Poulos, we focus on ensuring every patient is comfortable and pain-free during treatment. To make the experience comfortable, a cooling and numbing cream will be applied. You will be wearing eye protection while your skin concerns are addressed, relaxing in comfort on a treatment chair.

What is the recovery time?

After your treatment, your skin may appear red, and feel as if it is sunburned. Some may experience some minor swelling. The symptoms during recovery typically fade within three to four days. While your skin is healing and regenerating, you must avoid direct sunlight. If you venture out, ensure you protect your skin with sunscreen.
