Wrinkle Treatment Q & A
What causes wrinkles?
Wrinkles are the creases and lines that form in your skin. The primary cause of wrinkles is collagen loss. During your younger years, you have a thick layer of collagen deep within your skin.
That collagen acts as a padding, giving your face the youthful contouring often referred to as a “baby face.” As the years pass, you lose much of that collagen. Without the same level of padding, your skin is left to pool and sag into lines, folds, and wrinkles.
Your body won’t replace that lost collagen on its own. There are ways, however, to prompt new collagen production. Wrinkles are a normal part of the aging process, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept them as inevitable.
How can radiofrequency energy treatments reduce the appearance of wrinkles?
The TempSure Envi treatment platform uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of your skin. Your body perceives that heat as an injury and rushes to heal the area. That leads to new collagen growth.
Those newer collagen fibers grow more densely than the collagen that was already in place. A plumping effect takes place, smoothing your skin, and lessening the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and folds. Treatments can even improve the appearance of sagging skin at your jawline by tightening and lifting your facial skin.
What can I do to extend my results and prevent new wrinkles?
In the months following your treatment, you’ll begin to notice your skin becoming smoother and your wrinkles growing less noticeable. You’ll want to do everything you can to extend those results.
One of the most impactful things you can do to slow the development of wrinkles is to use a high-quality sunscreen every day. This includes days when you don’t anticipate spending a great deal of time outdoors. Ultraviolet rays can contribute to wrinkles, and it doesn’t take a day at the beach for damage to occur.
You should also find a great skin care routine and make time in your day to cleanse, tone, and moisturize your skin. These steps can go a long way toward giving you the most out of your wrinkle treatments.
