It can’t be denied that with age everyone gets a few wrinkles. Before the advent of modern cosmetic procedures, we had no choice.  We had to cope with the aging structure of the face and live with it.

However, society does attach a stigma to older looking men and women who are often viewed as being less attractive and having reduced vigor and energy compared to their younger counterparts. This propels many individuals to would like to do just about anything to help them get back their fresh, plump face that they used to have.

Treating Wrinkles and Pigmentation Beneath the Surface

Women often experiment with make-up options, including skin creams and lotions. But this only treats the surface. Any effects seen are often temporary. Moisturizers that claim to produce fabulous results for skin are also packaged with chemical preservatives that may damage your skin and even undermine other aspects of a person’s health.

Wrinkles need to be addressed at their point of origin beneath the surface of the skin. It is always most effective to address the cause and not the symptoms. Wrinkles are just an after effect of what is going on under the skin. The core issues need more attention than wrinkle itself.

One of the recent and popular anti-aging options is laser skin rejuvenation. This is a non-invasive method of treating wrinkles and it also produces significant improvements within a short span of time.

You will be pleasantly surprised to know that a survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) shows that lasers are among the most popular procedures that consumers prefer to reduce wrinkles.

How do Lasers Work?

When your skin is exposed to the light energy emitted by the laser, cells in the deepr layers of the skin are stimulated by the heat to produce new collagen fibers. These proteins are responsible for the skin’s firmness. Also melanin absorbs the laser energy. The pigment is then broken and cleared away from the skin’s surface by the lymphatic system.

The upper layers of the skin may show some redness and swelling. But these symptoms heal within a few days, leaving the skin without brown spots and a renewed, rejuvenated appearance.

Top Treatments

The 2014 ASDS Consumer Survey on Cosmetic Dermatologic Procedures  interviewed 8300 consumers for their opinions on general cosmetic treatments. Lasers were ranked among the four top preferred treatments. The other popular choices include light therapy, ultrasound and radiofrequency.

What sets apart laser treatment is the highly targeted approach. For example, today’s Fraxel lasers emit tiny and precise columns of light to only treat the affected areas while leaving healthy skin in tact.

If you are intending to undergo wrinkles treatment, make sure you choose a board certified dermatologist who possesses the right level of specialization to ensure successful outcomes and an overall positive experience in terms of patient care.
