I'm receiving GentleLase treatments for fine lines around my eyes. I've read that GentleLase is mainly for hair removal but I've seen a sentence or two saying it helps with wrinkles too. I just want to firm the skin & increase collagen. I'm 53 w/ very good skin, have had CO2 & fractional, know they are the best but have this package and they don't do either of these. What are your thoughts on using GentleLase for wrinkles? Am I wasting my money? Can this laser go deep enough to produce collagen?
What Is Your Opinion On Gentlelase for Wrinkles Around Eyes?

The Gentlelase is a hair removal laser.In fact, it is absolutely the most effective and safest laser for hair removal of light to medium skinned individuals.
Many lasers have lultiple functions, for example the V-Beam perfecta is wonderful both treating rosacea and facial veins, used on different settings, the V-Beam perfecta is great for crepey skin and fine lines. Go for the Perfecta for lines around the eyes, not the gentlelase
