    Default Laser tx has caused wrinkles

    Hi everyone,
    I went for my 2nd yag 1064 tx one week ago and have noticed since this last treatment that I have developed quite a few wrinkles on my forehead that wern't there before. Has anyone had this happen to them? To make things even stranger, I had a strange post-laser pimple outbreak at the same time as these wrinkles just popped up! Do you think I just need a better moisturizer after laser? I'm afraid to go for something heavier as I don't want my pores to enlarge anymore then they already are....any suggestions or ideas??

    The 'wrinkles 'are probably peeling skin. They will be gone in a week or two.

    I'm not sure why that would be. Are you using the same skin regime as prior to laser. Perhaps your skin is abit drier?

    I have to agree. I'm guessing this may be a temporary thing. I can't see how it's possible that a laser treatment would create wrinkles.

    i'm using the same regimen as before my laser tx; vivier facial wash and vivier lexxel ids anti-redness cream. I thought this cream was pretty thick, but now my face seems badly dehydrated and pimply. i bought some dove cream for sensitive skin today to try; hopefully it works...though i'm not optimistic as most creams make me break out.

    Katgo,
    I recently had an ipl treatment that caused a lot of swelling, especially under the eyes. When the swelling went down I noticed that I had more wrinkles under my eyes, probably because the skin had been stretch out due to the swelling. I assume this is temporary, at least I hope so.
