Most people find that their faces naturally undergo certain changes as they age, many of which are completely out of their control. Wrinkles are one of the first developments that let you know that your skin is beginning to grow older. The good news is that a few different wrinkle removal methods can minimize these fine lines or folds.
What do you need to know about the causes of wrinkles and the treatment of fine lines? Our guide will walk you through everything you should know about this sign of aging.
Causes of Wrinkles
While everyone will develop wrinkles at some point in their life, the causes of wrinkles are still unknown to most people. There are a few different reasons that wrinkles develop, most of which are completely out of your control. Aging is the largest culprit in causing wrinkles, but there is more than meets the eye here.
As you move out of your twenties, the amount of collagen in your face starts to decrease. Even elastin begins to weaken at this early age. These changes culminate in less elasticity in the face that worsens with age, allowing fine lines to develop.
Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repeated movements of your face and can surface almost anywhere. If you consistently make certain facial expressions such as smiling or frowning, your muscles and skin recall these positions and create the fine lines that you see. This type of wrinkle can result in lines in the following areas:
- Around the eyes (crow’s feet)
- On the nose (bunny lines)
- Between the eyebrows (frown lines)
- Around the mouth (parentheses lines)
Developing wrinkles is a natural part of the aging process, but you can minimize their appearance with some of our revolutionary treatments, including Clear + Brilliant and microneedling.
Option 1: Clear + Brilliant
If you are interested in new technology and laser skin treatments, we can help with Clear + Brilliant. This treatment is a great first step for those who want wrinkle removal and already use a great skincare regimen to minimize the effects of aging. It will rejuvenate your skin’s overall appearance and keep you looking younger for longer.
We will use a fractional laser to make small imperfections appear less noticeable. This treatment is ideal for those who do not have severe wrinkles or deep lines on their skin. It is geared toward patients who only need minor corrections for wrinkle removal.
Some of the benefits of Clear + Brilliant include improved skin tone and texture. It not only results in reduced wrinkles and fine lines, but it also reduces the appearance of pores. This laser can give you more radiant skin that gives you the appearance of youth and vitality.
Each procedure is relatively short, allowing you to squeeze it into a busy schedule. Clear + Brilliant sessions with one of our skincare professionals last for approximately 30 minutes. You can even resume using most skincare products directly after your treatment.
Option 2: Microneedling
Another key treatment used for wrinkle reduction is microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy. This minimally invasive method boosts your collagen production, which results in younger-looking skin.
How does this procedure work? A skincare professional will use a handheld device that contains small microneedles. It will make micro-wounds on the skin, which help the skin facilitate improved collagen and elastin levels. As a result, you can expect to see a decrease in the fine lines on your face.
We use EndyMed Intensif, a fractional radiofrequency treatment that couples with more traditional microneedling to smooth out skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. In addition to this, it also reduces the size of your pores and minimizes acne scarring.
The good news is that there is very little downtime involved with this method for reducing fine lines, which makes it a great option for those who have limited time to spend on improving their appearance. It is also safe for all skin types.
Option 3: Radiofrequency and Venus Viva
Radiofrequency wave treatment with the Venus Viva laser is another minimally invasive treatment that can tighten skin and reduce fine lines. It works similar to the EndyMed Intensif by using small pins to create micro-wounds that promote the body’s natural healing response. This improves collagen production and results in wrinkle reduction.
What makes the Venus Viva unique? It utilizes nanofractional radiofrequency and SmartScan, allowing our skincare professionals to control the heat and pattern of the laser.
The Venus Viva targets both the outer and middle layers of the skin, giving you several key benefits, including:
- Reducing wrinkles, deep lines, and folds
- Minimizing stretch marks
- Decreasing pore size
- Evening out skin texture
- Diminishing acne scars
Much like Clear + Brilliant and microneedling treatments, Venus Viva is easy to work into your schedule. Depending on what area you are treating and how large it is, sessions can take as little as 15 to 20 minutes with minimal downtime. Results can show up after as few as three treatments, but most patients see the best results after six sessions.
Venus Viva works effectively on all skin types, making this a great option for most people.
