Revive Tired Eyes With A New At-Home Laser Treatment

Laser therapies abound these days. It seems that there is a laser for just about every skin concern, and with minimal to no downtime with most options, laser treatments are a popular skin maintenance tool. So what possible new treatment could have hit the market? The one you can use at home.

The new PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser, $499, is a do-it-yourself microfine laser that claims to visibly improve lines and wrinkles and increase collagen production in the eye area by targeting the deeper layers of skin. This non-ablative fractional microfine light penetrates the skin to treat the support structure but also keeps the outer layer of skin intact for faster healing and recovery. The FDA-cleared treatment recommends just three to four minutes of use daily for the first month to rejuvenate the skin around the eyes. Then, simple maintenance of twice-a-week treatments should keep your eyes revived.

What we're wondering is how the PaloVia might compare to professional in-office treatments. Would you feel comfortable applying this technology on yourself or would you feel better at the practiced hand of a doctor? Share your thoughts.
