Coolaser Offers New Option for Treating Crows Feet

The small wrinkles that develop around the edges of the eyes and around the lash line are among the telltale signs of aging, but there are several cosmetic procedures that can help to reduce the appearance of these lines – also known as crows feet – or eliminate them altogether.

Skin tightening treatments and Botox injections can provide temporary wrinkle relief, but an innovative laser that works by promoting collagen regrowth may also offer some benefits.

The Coolaser device is desgiend to deliver laser energy deep into the top layer of the skin and causes the skin tissues to contract. In this procedure, the entire surface of the skin is first cooled using a special device, and then a series of light pulses are emitted onto the skin’s surface. The skin cells absorb the light energy to completely vaporize the cells. As the physician passes this light over the skin, small amounts of tissue are removed. Since this is perceived as damage to the skin, collagen production increases. This tightening effect helps to strengthen the skin and restores elasticity.

The Coolaser device is currently performed at the office of Dr. Simon Ourian, the Medical Director of Epione Medical Corporation of Los Angeles, and so far, has delivered very promising results.

In addition to treating wrinkles, the Coolaser is designed to remove superficial blemishes and can also even out an uneven skin tone. The treatment takes between 10 to 15 minutes, and the depth of penetration can be adjusted according to the person’s skin type.

Patients can turn to this innovative laser technology to eliminate wrinkles, but are also advised to take care of their skin by using Retin-A topical skin creams (available only by prescription), or by undergoing a skin tightening treatment that helps to tighten all of the skin around the face and neck area.
