Which laser is best in my situation?

I am a 61 yr old female with fairly decent skin. I would like to get rid of lines on my cheeks and other fine lines on my face. I get Botox several times a year and I am using all of your recommended products. I do not have brown spots or acne. What lasar would be appropriate for me?

At 61, you’ll get the most result with a fractionated carbon dioxide laser like the DEKA DOT or the Lumenis Active/Deep Fx.  Please see our section  section on Finding a Good Doctor to make sure you get a good treatment!   You’ll get the best result for your wrinkles and a little tightening with this class of laser.  Be prepared though for 5-10 days of  “downtime” depending on the results you want and your particular skin.  Your doctor should be able to pinpoint fairly accurately how long it will be.

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! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
