Wrinkle Reduction

Wrinkles are a natural development as the skin ages. We cannot stop time or change our heredity. We’re all going to get wrinkles eventually. There are, however, numerous ways to lessen their appearance and help prevent premature wrinkling.

As we age, our uppermost layer of skin gets thinner and allows more moisture to seep out, thus becoming drier. Our oil glands also slow down and increase this problem. Deeper in the skin the elastin and collagen that support the skin's structure breaks down and the skin no longer is as taut and smooth. In the deepest layer, our fat cells begin to shrink and are less likely to plump up the damaged skin. This aging process leads to wrinkling and sagging. There are many environmental factors that can speed this process up such as sun exposure, diet and smoking, to name a few. Thankfully, there are many advances in esthetic medicine that can help slow this process and reverse damage.

The treatment that is best for you will depend on many factors, including your skin condition, your overall health, and the current degree of wrinkling and sagging. Once your evaluation is completed we can offer you the best treatment options available. You can then choose which treatment options will fit your budget, lifestyle and tolerance for downtime.

The options offered in our clinic include:

MicrodermabrasionA mechanical removal of the top layer of the skin. It is performed by using a machine that combines a fine abrasive tip or crystals and suction applied to the skin. It is used to improve conditions on the surface of the skin such as minor sun damage, acne and superficial scarring.

Chemical PeelsA chemical solution applied to the skin to improve the texture by removing the damaged outer layers. The chemicals used vary in strength and depth of penetration. A chemical peel or series of peels can help improve the appearance of acne or acne scarring, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, irregular pigment and sun damage. You end up with smoother, younger-looking skin.

BotoxA chemical injection that works by blocking the nerves that contract muscles, thus softening the appearance of wrinkles.

JuvedermThe family of Juvederm fillers are injectable gels designed to temporarily add volume to the skin where moderate to severe wrinkles and folds occur, or for a deeper injection into the cheeks to restore volume loss.

RadiesseRadiesse is a volumizing filler designed to immediately restore volume and stimulate the production of natural collagen. By restoring volume you are able to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and plump the skin for a tightening effect.

elōs Plus Skin RejuvenationThe elōs Plus Skin Rejuvenation treatment utilizes a combination of optical, (light), energy and radiofrequency to restore and rejuvenate the appearance of your skin. The treatment safely and comfortably fades the appearance of skin imperfections caused by the sun and uneven skin tones due to brown spots and red vascular lesions.

elōs Plus SublativeDuring an elōs Plus Sublative treatment radiofrequency energy is delivered to your skin in the form of a matrix. As the skin around the matrix dots heals, healthy skin cells and new collagen are produced. This will reduce the appearance of mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial pigment. The texture of your skin will become smoother and more elastic.

elōs Plus Triniti+This treatment is a full facial rejuvenation treatment utilizing a combination of three treatments to address skin color and texture along with fine lines and wrinkle. It also encourages collagen remodeling, adding a light lift to the skin.

Laser Skin RejuvenationThe PicoSure and Cynosure Lasers offer us the opportunity to target pigmented and vascular lesions with the optimal wavelengths for clearance. The damaged lesions will be cleared by the body, or they will slough off. This process will remove the appearance of the lesions from your skin.
