Wrinkles Removal Q & A
What causes wrinkles?
When you make facial expressions, your small facial muscles pull your skin into folds and wrinkles. When you’re younger, your skin springs back to its smooth appearance as your expression changes. As you get older, your body produces less elastin and collagen, the fibers that keep your skin smooth, supple, and elastic. With less of these fibers, your skin gets stuck in the fold your expressions create, causing wrinkles and fine lines.
Also, sun exposure accelerates the aging process. Sunlight includes harmful UV rays that damage the elastin fibers in your skin, causing your skin to become fragile and wrinkle prematurely.
What are the available treatments for wrinkles?
At Enhance at Aspen, the doctors and clinical staff provide skin rejuvenation treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles using the TempSure Envi radiofrequency system created by the medical laser specialists at CynoSure®.
Your doctor uses a handheld device to direct the radiofrequency energy toward your skin. The radiofrequency energy safely heats your skin, triggering new collagen growth. The appearance of your skin improves as new collagen cells plump your skin from within its deepest layers.*
TempSure Envi doesn’t stimulate your nerves like other heat-based treatments, which means your doctor can use a higher temperature for more extreme results without causing discomfort.
Can I prevent wrinkles?
While aging is an inevitable part of life, you can take steps to protect your skin. First, limit your sun exposure. If you must go out in the sun, wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen on your face, neck, chest, and hands.
You should also drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and follow a healthy diet that includes omega-3 fatty acid-rich foods like nuts, oily fish, and avocado. You should also avoid tobacco products; it’s not only bad for your overall health, but studies show that people who smoke have thinner and more wrinkled skin than nonsmokers.
Getting adequate sleep also protects your skin as your body produces more human growth hormones that are responsible for healthy, firm skin when you rest. If you don’t get enough sleep, your body produces more cortisol, which is known to break down skin cells.
Taking good care of your skin and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are key to anti-aging, but time can still take a toll on your skin. The TempSure Envi laser is an excellent way to improve your skin and take years off your appearance. If you’re concerned about the appearance of your skin, call or schedule a consultation online today to learn how the team can help you minimize the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles.
