I've been using the PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser at home for four weeks and have completed the initial four weeks of treatment. Now, I'll just have to treat my periorbital area twice per week to continue to see results.
If you've missed out on the rest of my experience, check out these posts, including one video, which walks you through the entire process of how to laser your own face. It's not hard whatsoever, but I can totally relate to wanting to see someone else do it first! (I watched Kari from Fab Over Forty's video before I even opened the box!)
In case you've missed my other posts, before I started using the PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser, I had quite a few fine lines and wrinkles. I am lucky that I have pretty decent skin (and proof that loads of sunscreen really works 20 years down the road). But I do have some damage to the skin under my eyes, especially on my drivers side (left, for you non-drivers). If there is something I can do to curb them before they continue to grow more deeply, then I'm all for it.
Here are the facts you should know if you are considering an at-home option for lessening fine lines. The PaloVia is the first FDA-cleared laser for home treatment of wrinkles in the periorbital area. You use the laser each night to "zap" the affected area for a few minutes. You may wake up with a little swelling, redness or dryness, but you can overcome that with the help of a few good products. After 30 days, you will have lines that have been lessened. To maintain and improve the area, continue to use the laser twice per week. Simple, huh?
So does it hurt? On low, not really. It's like a quick rubber band snap. On medium, it's a little more intense, but you'll most likely forget about it, by the time the next night rolls around. On high, it's a little more memorable, where discomfort is concerned. Just be sure to start low and work your way up, to avoid more swelling and redness than you were potentially expecting.
It's time for the big reveal! To recap, I started with minor lines that escaped on to my cheeks, that were always visible, even when I wasn't smiling.
