  2. So how does laser resurfacing compare to wrinkle creams and an anti aging treatment to look younger?

 

  1. Is laser resurfacing the treatment that's right for you and your wrinkles?

Although nothing is for certain, there are many who do use this treatment option. Having a highly skilled technician will play a role in just how successful your treatments are.

 

However, recovery from laser resurfacing takes time. In fact, it's rather extensive , and the recovery period can last from ten days to two weeks. The area that receives the treatment will need to be bandaged and it can be very painful depending on the extent of the procedure. You may also experience some redness in the areas that were treated. The pain is easily managed with over the counter pain medication.

 

So if you have laser resurfacing done, you'll have to perhaps put your social life on hold for a while.

However, another type of laser resurfacing treatment, will stimulate collagen growth without any burning of surface skin cells. This laser resurfacing treatment is painless, and requires a smaller recovery period.

 

  1. So how does laser resurfacing compare to wrinkle creams and an anti aging treatment to look younger?

    When you're looking at wrinkle creams that work, the creams have some benefits over laser peels

    The first benefit is that wrinkle creams are non invasive, as they're topically applied and doesn't involve burning off a surface layer of skin. So there's less risk of infection or inflammation requiring a recovery period.

    The second benefit is that wrinkle creams provides specific antioxidants which are needed to neutralize free radicals and to let your cells function healthily just like it did in youth, making your skin look younger.

    However, as well as reducing wrinkles, laser treatments can even out complexion problems including age spots, and also reduce scars.

    Secondly, while anti ageing creams may be beneficial in superficial wrinkles, laser can target deeper wrinkles with multiple sessions.
