Fine Lines Q & A

La Jolla Laser MedSpa

What causes fine lines?

Multiple factors influence the formation of fine lines, the most common of which is natural aging. As they get older, most people develop fine lines and wrinkles, but certain lifestyle habits and other factors can quicken the process, including:

  • Sun damage
  • Repeated muscle movements
  • Squinting
  • Smoking cigarettes

When fine lines first start to develop, it’s often with muscle movements. When these muscles aren’t engaged, the skin is smooth. Yet, over time, as this skin gets moved, folded, and creased again and again, permanent fine lines develop, which remain even when the muscles aren’t contracting.

How do you treat fine lines?

At La Jolla Laser MedSpa, the team uses the PicoSureⓇ aesthetic laser system to address and treat your fine lines and wrinkles. This innovative system combines intense laser energy with rapid delivery through a specialized lens to bring you the best in anti-aging treatments.

The PicoSure laser energy employs recent cellular research to bring you a cutting-edge treatment that triggers your body’s natural healing process to improve the look, texture, and tone of your skin without damaging your tissue.

By delivering rapid laser light energy through its unique lens, the energy transforms into a gentle pressure that squeezes your damaged skin cells. This squeeze causes your cell to send signals to other cells, which respond with an increase in growth factors to the area.

These growth factors begin to heal your skin, restoring it, smoothing fine lines, and making it look radiant.

What happens during treatment for fine lines?

When you arrive for your PicoSure treatment at La Jolla Laser MedSpa, your doctor may apply a topical numbing agent to your skin to minimize any discomfort. Although most people claim no pain, the laser process does feel like a snapping rubber band.

Once you’re prepared, your doctor uses the handheld applicator to deliver laser energy right where you need it. The process averages 10-15 minutes. Once the doctor completes the treatment, you’re free to go without any restrictions or downtime.

Your skin may feel and look like it’s slightly sunburned for a few hours after your treatment.
