This is a middle aged female patient who was looking for a solution for the lines around her eyes. She had a few different options for treatment, but she decided to proceed with the Active FX, CO2 laser. She chose the laser because the results are longer lasting, typically around four years, rather than the temporary three to four months that Botox gives you. The laser procedure was quick and involved only minimal discomfort. After a week of redness and some peeling this patient was able to see the remarkable change in the treated area. The moderate wrinkles that once surrounded her outer eyes were almost untraceable.
