Which laser for those vertical lip lines?

Dr. Irwin, The vertical lines on my upper lip, are really bothering me. I'd rather not have shots, and I understand lasers can help.. Which type of laser should I be looking at? Judi

Generally the CO2 fractionated laser or traditional (only in expert hands) is best for these. You may need to do your whole face though to avoid a cut off line and blending problems.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
