Six Wrinkle Reduction Treatments that Really Work
Facial wrinkles can add years to your appearance. One of the most often asked questions we get from our patients at Advanced Laser Skin Care & Spa in the Madison Heights area is how to minimize wrinkles and fine lines.
We offer a variety of new technologies that can assist in the reduction of wrinkles – ranging from non-invasive radiofrequency and laser technologies to minimally invasive Botox and facial filler injections.
What Causes Wrinkling on the Face?
In order to comprehend why the skin on our faces wrinkles as we get older, it is necessary to first understand what causes wrinkles and lines to appear. Wrinkled facial skin is caused by three age-related factors: decreased collagen production, the loss of elastin, and a decline in the amount of fat in the face.
As we get older, the skin’s synthesis of two key proteins – elastin and collagen – declines dramatically. Skin elasticity – the ability to “spring back” – is provided by the protein elastin. While collagen is made up of fibers that are densely packed to provide the skin’s structure and smoothness.
Furthermore, subcutaneous fat (fat found under the skin) which helps to plump skin on the face declines with age – resulting in a loss of firmness and tightness.
And, while elasticity, collagen, and face fat naturally diminish as individuals age, external factors such as genetics, gravity, the suns UV rays, environmental contaminants, cigarette smoke, and alcohol may all contribute to skin wrinkling.
Facial Wrinkle Reduction Treatments
#1. Matrix RF Wrinkle Reduction Treatment
Matrix RadioFrequency treatments can reverse the cumulative effects of sun exposure, collagen loss, and moisture loss by stimulating the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin.
Radiofrequency thermal energy is delivered deep into the skin layers via controlled pulses of energy to enhance the general texture of the skin while tightening, firming, smoothing and lifting the skin in the targeted areas.
All skin types and all areas of the face (with the exception of the eyelids and lips) can be safely and effectively treated with Matrix RF skin tightening.
#2. ReFirme Wrinkle Reduction Treatment
The ReFirme wrinkle reduction treatment, which is powered by ground-breaking Elos technology, enables patients to appear younger and more refreshed — with no pain and no downtime. It is a safe and non-surgical procedure that can resurface skin on the forehead, neck, checks, jawline, and around the eyes and mouth.
The ReFirme wrinkle reduction treatment works by increasing the synthesis of collagen, which helps to decrease fine lines and superficial wrinkles, leaving patients with firmer, smoother skin.
#3. ThermiSmooth Wrinkle Reduction Treatment
ThermiSmooth is a non-invasive, non-ablative wrinkle reduction procedure that uses a specially developed hand piece to gently treat the skin with regulated radiofrequency thermal energy, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
When the skin is exposed to radiofrequency heat waves, the skin’s natural synthesis of collagen and elastin is stimulated. This results in facial skin that is thicker, stronger, and tighter – reducing wrinkles for a dramatically more youthful look.
#4. Dermalinfusion Wrinkle Reduction
Dermalinfusion is a comfortable, affordable and effective wrinkle reduction treatment that repairs skin texture with exfoliation and the intense infusion of nutrients into the skin. Skin-nourishing serums penetrate deep into the skin after exfoliation, assisting the skin’s natural capacity to create new healthy collagen and elastin, resulting in more youthful-looking, supple skin.
#5. Botox & Dysport Wrinkle Reduction
Millions of men and women get Botox injections every year to turn back the clock and reduce or eliminate wrinkles and lines.
Botox, and similar injectable product Dysport, are typically used to reduce or eliminate the lines and furrows commonly found on the forehead and between the eyes, as well as to reduce “crow’s feet”.
Botox works by effectively blocking the nerve signals to specifically targeted muscles in the face. This causes the muscle to relax – which reduces the appearance of the associated facial lines and wrinkles.
#6. Facial Filler Wrinkle Reduction
Advanced Laser Skin Care & Spa in the Madison Heights area also offers a wide range of FDA-approved dermal fillers, which restore lost volume to the face and “fill in” wrinkles as well as deep creases and folds.
Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm offer the most rapid facial wrinkle reduction outcomes – instantly filling lines and folds with no surgery and no downtime.
Skillfully placed dermal fillers can remove years off your appearance when performed by an experienced medical injector – with results that can last up to two years!
