Wrinkle Removal with Laser or Collagen Fillers

Wrinkles are one of the signs of aging that affect the self esteem of both men and women. It makes them feel embarrassed about their body and look for effective means of wrinkle removal. One of the most popular options used for wrinkle removal is laser wrinkle removal. However there are both benefits and risks involved with the procedure.

1. The most obvious benefit of laser wrinkle removal is that it is fast and relatively painless in removing wrinkles.

2. Its effects last for about one to five years.

3. When compared to other alternative methods of wrinkle treatment Houston, this is a cheaper option.

4. Laser wrinkle removal is done by a professional in a professional environment, such as Houston Plastic Surgeon Mark A. Schusterman.

Besides these benefits, there are some possible side effects that may arise with laser wrinkle removal. These side effects are mild, and usually occur if there is too deep a penetration of the laser into the skin layer. Side effects may affect about 10-15% of the people who undergo laser wrinkle removal.
