Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process as the skin begins to weaken and collagen production begins to decrease. At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery and Anti-Aging, we offer laser treatments for a variety of common skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles.
Laser skin resurfacing is an effective way to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as other common skin concerns. Laser skin resurfacing not only removes the outer, damaged layers of skin cells, but targets deeper layers to stimulate collagen production, leading to stronger, younger-looking skin. Laser skin resurfacing treatment can be customized to meet the unique concerns of the patient and their severity.
Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, with most individual’s collagen production decreasing once they reach their 20s. Collagen is the key to strong healthy skin. This loss of collagen combined with repeated facial expressions and sun exposure leads to weakened skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Those who begin to experience this can benefit from laser skin resurfacing to remove the damaged layers of skin and reveal new skin beneath. Laser energy also heats deeper layers, improving more severe wrinkles and lines. Patients can also benefit from laser skin resurfacing to improve the appearance of acne scars, sun spots, rough texture, or dull complexion.

To begin laser skin resurfacing treatment for wrinkles reduction, the skin is cleansed and the patient is provided with eye protection. Adley DaSilva will then use the appropriate laser settlings to target the skin depending on the severity of the patient’s concerns. The laser will deliver controlled laser energy to the treatment area. patients can expect a zapping sensation, but a topical numbing cream can be applied ahead of time to improve comfort. Several passes of the laser will be made over the treatment area.
There is no downtime required after laser resurfacing, however, the skin may be red and stinging similar to a mild sunburn. Patients should avoid sun exposure while healing. In the week after treatment, the skin may begin to peel, revealing new, healthier skin beneath. Fine lines and wrinkles will begin to smooth out with the trigger of new collagen production. The results of laser resurfacing for wrinkles reduction can last for several months, however, maintenance sessions are recommended every few months to maintain smooth skin.
