Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

What is wrinkle reduction?

Wrinkle reduction at Favia MediSpa uses Harmony XL Pro laser technology to reduce fine lines and wrinkles without surgery or other invasive procedures. The technology offers the healthier skin and anti-aging results you desire. Whether it is the 11 lines (between the eyes), marionette lines by the mouth, or finer wrinkles around the lips and eyes, Harmony XL Pro technology can help. 


Alma’s Harmony XL Pro laser has different handpieces that can be used to target different layers of the skin. This allows the skin to be treated in the deeper layers where collagen growth can be stimulated and the more superficial layers where more immediate skin tightening and resurfacing can be achieved. By doing so, the providers at Favia MediSpa can offer you more rejuvenated and healthier looking skin. 

What are the benefits of wrinkle reduction?

The main benefits of wrinkle reduction treatment at Favia MediSpa include:


  • Younger-looking skin
  • Fewer fine lines
  • Fewer wrinkles
  • Less skin sagging
  • Tighter, lifted skin
  • Self-confidence


Harmony XL Pro laser treatments offer highly effective anti-aging results without the need for surgery or needles. Less downtime means getting back to your usual activities in a more timely manner. 


Favia MediSpa specialists are highly trained in laser technology and use the most cutting-edge treatments available. 


How does Harmony XL Pro Work?

The Harmony XL Pro is the most comprehensive laser skin rejuvenation system on the market, with nearly 20 distinct laser, light, and ultrasound technologies for the treatment of a multitude of skin conditions. Your skilled Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics practitioner now has precise depth control for any skin type, high-speed skin remodeling, multi-colored tattoo removal, and powerful acne and pigment treatments at our fingertips with three advanced attachments, the ClearLift Q-Switch, the Dye-VL, and the iPixel Erbium: YAG 2940.

ClearLift Q-Switch

For skin remodeling, skin brightening, pigment lesions, and tattoo removal, the ClearLift Q-Switch is truly innovative technology. This is the first fractional non-ablative Q-Switched laser for the treatment of age-related skin imperfections like fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tone, and skin laxity. With tips for both superficial and deeper skin issues, it’s safe even for delicate areas like the face, neck, and décolletage.

ClearLift uses mechanical means, rather than thermal, to create a controlled dermal wound at varying tissue depths while leaving the epidermis unharmed. This is what makes it unique for so many skin conditions. The body’s wound healing process grows new collagen and contracts and tightens tissue, leaving your skin firmer, fresher, and healthier than before.


The Dye-VL attachment addresses vascular lesions, acne scarring, rosacea, melasma, spider veins, and port-wine stains. By harnessing light energy from a precise, narrow spectrum, the Dye-VL is a truly innovative treatment using pulsed light in a safe and effective way.

iPixel Erbium:YAG 2940

This fractional ablative laser significantly enhances skin tone and elasticity while smoothing texture and increasing moisture content. It has the amazing power to reduce pigmentation and pore size with its 7-pixel configuration, which allows for deeper penetration and higher-powered ablation to enhance results.

Is wrinkle reduction right for me?

After discussing your medical history and desired outcome, your Favia MediSpa provider customizes cosmetic laser treatments to match your needs. They examine your skin in areas of concern and tell you what to expect during each procedure. 

What happens during laser treatment for wrinkle reduction?

Prior to undergoing laser treatment for wrinkle reduction, make sure to protect your skin from the sun. Your specialist cleans your skin and gives you specialized glasses to protect your eyes from the laser. Treatments are typically painless.  For more aggressive treatments, topical products can be used to numb the treatment area in order to reduce discomfort.

Using a handheld device, your provider emits laser energy into targeted areas of your face to heat tissues and stimulate new collagen production. The size of the treatment area determines how long each treatment lasts.

Favia MediSpa also offers wrinkle-reducing Alastin® Skincare products to optimize anti-aging outcomes. Talk to your Favia MediSpa provider to discuss what is right for you.

What should I expect after the procedure?

After laser treatment with Alma’s ClearLift technology for wrinkle reduction, your skin does not appear swollen and is not tender. Clients can return to work or their other routine activities immediately after treatment. 3-6 treatments at 4-6 week intervals are recommended for the best outcomes. Maintenance treatments at 6 to 12 month intervals are recommended to maintain the collagen and wrinkle reduction that has been achieved.

ClearLift technology allows for no downtime after treatments, and you can resume a regular routine immediately. If needed, multiple laser treatments with periodic maintenance procedures offer you the long-term anti-aging results you deserve. 

Harmon XL Pro Erbium treatments work by lasering pixelated holes in the superficial skin which allow for smoother and less wrinkled skin after healing. After this treatment, clients can expect about 1 week of downtime while the superficial skin heals.
