What is fine line reduction?

Fine line reduction is one of the aesthetic services available at North Pacific Dermatology. The dermatology and aesthetics practice has the most advanced laser technology available. For fine line reduction, the team uses the PicoWay Resolve device.

PicoWay Resolve is a picosecond laser that delivers ultra-short pulses of laser energy that penetrate the top layer of your skin, targeting the layer underneath. The energy from the laser stimulates collagen and elastin production. 

Collagen and elastin are structural proteins found in the dermal layer of your skin, providing strength and elasticity. As you get older, collagen production slows down and is one of the main factors contributing to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.

With PicoWay Resolve, the team at North Pacific Dermatology restores your skin’s natural strength and resilience, reducing the appearance of facial lines.
