Anti-Aging Q & A
What causes signs of aging?
As you get older, your body changes and normal processes slow. For example, your ability to generate new cells decreases and your body isn’t able to keep up with cellular loss.
One of the places this is most apparent is in the decrease of collagen and elastin in your skin. Elastin and collagen are the fibers that keep your skin smooth, supple, and elastic enough to return to its normal position after you smile, frown, or make another facial expression.
Over time, your skin can’t respond as quickly, and it gets stuck, creating lines and wrinkles. Additionally, when your collagen levels decrease, your skin may become loose, or you may lose contouring in your lips and cheeks. The aging process can also cause small spider veins to appear on your face.
Exposure to the sun can accelerate the aging process. The UV rays in sunlight damage the elastin fibers in your skin, causing your skin to stretch and sag prematurely. Sunlight also triggers melanin production which leads to discoloration like brown or reddish age spots.
How are wrinkles and other signs of aging treated?
At Enhance at Aspen, the doctors and clinical staff provide skin rejuvenation treatments using the TempSure Envi radiofrequency system. The radiofrequency energy safely heats your skin, which triggers new collagen growth. The new collagen is strong and fibrous, plumping and tightening your skin from its deepest layers and reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin.* It can also reduce the appearance of small spider veins on your face.
Your doctor provides a customized plan to address your specific needs. However, in most cases, you have a series of four treatments with 2-4 weeks between each appointment. During your appointments, your doctor uses a handheld device to direct the radiofrequency waves toward your skin.
TempSure Envi is unique in that it doesn’t stimulate your nerves like other heat-based treatments, which means your doctor can use a higher temperature without causing discomfort.
You should notice an improvement after your first appointment and your skin revitalization continues over the following weeks as your body produces fresh collagen. While the collagen production is permanent, you may choose to have touch-up sessions every 6-12 months to maintain your rejuvenated appearance.
Can I prevent my skin from aging?
While aging is an inevitable part of life, you can take steps to protect your skin. First, always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen on your face, neck, chest, and hands. You should also drink plenty of water and make sure you have plenty of omega-3 fatty acids in your diet.
