When it comes to our wrinkles, we'll do almost anything to make them disappear. Injections, peels, trips to the doctor's office—you name it, we've probably tried it. So, when we stumbled upon a high-tech beauty device that promised to target and treat our tricky areas at home, we were elated. That’s right—no more dermatologists, needles or toxins. You can now treat fine lines and wrinkles at home with the Illuminage Skin Smoothing Laser.
So, what makes the Illuminage so special?
Fillers and injections can leave behind temporary bruising, and require multiple follow-up visits every 6-12 months. Not so with The Skin Smoothing Laser. It might leave treated areas a little red, but that redness disappears within 24-48 hours of use. With continued use, the device dramatically reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eye area. Pretty cool, right?
The Skin Smoothing Laser works by delivering pulses of laser light below the surface of the skin where wrinkles form. This triggers the body’s natural response to generate new collagen fiber. The laser has two settings—Lo and Hi. Lo is great for those with sensitive skin, or for people who may be experiencing irritation from the Hi setting.
Start with a clean, dry face. Clean skin is crucial when using your Illuminage! Next, apply the tip of the Laser face down to the skin. Watch and listen for the confirmation sound and light. The beep indicates that the Laser is firing. Once the confirmation tone and light have turned off, move the device ¼ inch to next zone and repeat. Each zone should get roughly 40 pulses, or 60 pulses if you have a larger surface area to cover.
It’s important to take good care of your skin. Your face may feel slightly warm from the Laser, so you might want to apply a calming serum or moisturizer afterwards. Due to redness, it’s best to use your Illuminage at night. Continue to use the Laser once daily for 5 days on, 2 days off until desired results are reached. You can start to see results in as little as two weeks, and optimal results are reached within 12 weeks.
If you're battling nagging trouble spots—namely, those annoying fine lines that surround lips and eyes—the Skin Smoothing Laser is an excellent option for you. Don't let those wrinkles bring you down anymore. Reach for an Illuminage and give your skin—and spirits—a major lift.
