What is the best option for really deep lines throughout the face? Will the laser work for this?
Facial wrinkles are difficult to eliminate, despite what you see on television. Many fractional or minimal downtime lasers and even some skin care products will promise the ability to soften wrinkles and lines. Yet deep rhytids in my experience require a fairly aggresive treatment to really make a difference.
For years the options included either dermabrasion or a deep chemical peel. Since the introduction of ablative CO2 laser resurfacing, those options have faded in their use. And the reason is simple-nothing out there reduces wrinkles and lines, even deep ones, with the same consistancy and safety as CO2 laser. While the treatment is aggresive and there is downtime and risks, for those patients wanting maximal improvement with the most predictable technique, CO2 laser is the choice.
