Hello from JustAnswer.

The effectiveness would depend upon the depth of the lines that you are looking to treat. It is very effective at treating superficial and moderately deep lines, but it is not as effective at treating deeper lines. Laser treatment is also not very effective at tightening skin where the underlying issue is loss of elasticity in the layer of tissue under the skin.

One of the primary advantages of considering the more aggressive laser treatments is that even the most aggressive laser treatments are generally well tolerated. There are some possible complications that can occur with laser treatment, such as infection, scarring, or alterations in pigmentation, but the likelihood of these complications are lower than with other treatment options.

If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
