The PaloVia laser, the first at-home laser that is FDA-cleared for eye wrinkle treatments, raises several questions for potential users:
This video explains how the PaloVia laser treats eye wrinkles with the same skin-renewing technology used by doctors – but adapted for home use.
Unlike creams and lotions, which work primarily on the surface of the skin, the PaloVia laser penetrates to deeper skin layers – where eye wrinkles form. Short pulses of micro-fine laser light treat the skin’s aging support structure. Then the body's natural healing process sweeps away older tissue and rebuilds it with fresh collagen and elastin.
Both the PaloVia laser and comparable in-office procedures use fractional laser technology to treat eye wrinkles. A primary difference between at-home and in-office treatments is the amount of coverage – or how much of the skin’s surface area is treated at a time. A professional fractional procedure uses higher surface coverage per treatment and requires multiple treatments to achieve desired results. The PaloVia laser uses lower coverage but higher frequency. Over the course of one month, the coverage area of the laser gradually increases – eventually smoothing out the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. The results are natural-looking, but dramatic. Look at photos before the laser treatments, and at different intervals in the treatment cycle, to see for yourself.
