NLite Laser Collagen Replenishment System?

03/18/2002

Question:

I am thinking about having a procedure done which was developed by a company called NLite. It claims to be safe, painless,and takes minutes and I can return to my day immediately. They say "NLite Laser Collagen Replenishment uses a specific frequency of yellow laser light to stimulate your own collagen growth...non-ablative...nonanesthesia. Treatment time takes 20-60 minutes. Gradually over a few weeks, your new collagen forms and fills in the voids, reducing the depth of the wrinkle." My question is, does this work? If so, is it longterm? Are there any longterm effects? I think it cost about $1,200. for a full treatment and may require a follow up treatment a few weeks later depending on the size and quantity of the wrinkles. Is this something that I would have to keep paying for every three months because the collagen disappears? Thanks for your input. Mary
