Hating your wrinkles? Yeah, who doesn't.
And sure, you're probably thinking what I am: Why spend all that time and money going to the dermatologist for laser treatments when there must be a way to do it at home? Who needs a med-school education, right?
Well, according to the folks at Palomar Medical, you don't!
It’s the first at-home laser device cleared by the FDA for use on fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, and it works by sending laser beams designed to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen-production process, thus eliminating creases (so it claims).
Maintenance requires using the PaloVia twice a week, following daily use during the first month. The appliance boasts a safety feature that will only allow you to use it once every 24 hours.
Though I’m a gadget guru, devoted to my Clarisonic and Zeno, I have zero plans to test the PaloVia (sorry to disappoint). While I’d love to eliminate crow’s-feet on the (comparatively) cheap in my own home, the promised safety of the laser does not make me feel good: The instructions state that you need to keep the device from your open or closed eye.
How safe could it possibly be, right?
Rattled nerves aside, I had to wonder what the dermatologists thought.
