The Lux 2940 is a fractionated erbium laser similar to the Sciton ProFractional laser that we have at Quintessa Medical Spa. This laser can provide excellent improvement in wrinkling in virtually any area of the face. It can also provide significant improvements in acne scarring, surgical scarring, and scarring from chicken pox or other infections. The laugh lines or lines around the mouth also called the melolabial folds can be improved with this type of a laser in that the skin crease can be improved, but the fold or depression itself is really not going to be changed by laser resurfacing. Options for the fold would include fillers such as Radiesse, Restylane, and Juvéderm or for a more permanent solution, surgical treatments such as deep plane facelift or placement of SMAS tissue in the fold can be a longer lasting answer to this problem.
