I have some strange wrinkled lines after Vbeam. Is this a side effect? (Photo)

I've had 3 Vbeams over 3 months. My last treatment was 4 weeks ago. After the swelling went down the last time, I noticed some strange wrinkled lines on my right cheek (which has been zapped the most due to a few bad capillaries). I had significant swelling each time and was wondering what is going on with these wrinkled lines and if they will improve over time as my skin makes new collagen and elastin. I do not want any procedures and wish for my skin to heal on its own. How long will this take?

Lasers, microneedling/PRP and skin care will help the lines, pores, wrinkles.  I suggest sculptra injections along with this as preventative maintenance.  Best, Dr. Emer.
