  • ARealAge answered

    In nonablative laser treatment, the energy from laser beam heats middle layers of skin, leaving the top layer intact, which stimulates collagen growth.

    What it's best for: Improving mild to moderate wrinkling, rough texture, and superficial pigment irregularities.

    Average cost: $850+ per treatment.

    Number of treatments: Three to four treatments over two to three months.

    Risks and recovery time: Redness and swelling last a few days. Lesions, such as sun spots, may form dark crusts before disappearing.

    Inside scoop: Topical anesthetic or local anesthesia is used to relieve stinging sensation.
