Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

What causes wrinkles?

Fine lines and wrinkles are a normal part of aging and result from a combination of factors. As you get older, your skin becomes thinner and you lose much of your supportive structures, causing loose skin that’s more likely to wrinkle or sag.

What’s more, for years your repetitive muscles movements manipulated your skin in the same way, over and over. Facial movements like frowning and squinting result in wrinkles and fine lines where your muscles contract beneath them.

Certain lifestyle habits also increase your risk of developing wrinkles and include things like:

  • Getting too much sun exposure
  • Smoking cigarettes
  • Eating too many refined carbohydrates
  • Neglecting facial cleansing and moisturizing

What kinds of wrinkle reduction treatments are available?

At Southwest Laser Skin Care, Dr. Li offers a variety of wrinkle reduction treatments and recommends the best option based on the severity of your wrinkles and your anti-aging goals.

Laser treatment

The cutting-edge CynosureⓇ PicoSureⓇ device delivers short-pulsed laser energy into your skin to reduce the signs of aging while boosting the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that help support your skin’s structure.

Radiofrequency treatment

The PellevéⓇ wrinkle reduction system uses state-of-the-art radiofrequency technology to heat your skin cells, stimulating a natural healing response. This spurs your cells to produce skin-plumping collagen and elastin, filling the voids that lead to wrinkles and fine lines.

Threading

When you want permanent results, consider NovaThreads. Using dissolvable surgical threads, Dr. Li tightens your skin while stimulating the production of proteins that help keep your skin vibrant and youthful.

Injectables

Dr. Li provides a variety of injectables to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. With options including neuromodulation injections, which temporarily stop muscle movements, and dermal fillers, which add volume beneath the skin’s surface, Dr. Li can find the one that’s right for you.

How does the Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction System work?

The Pellevé system uses radiofrequency energy to increase the temperature around your skin cells, which benefits your skin in two ways:

This heating causes the collagen already present to contract, tightening your skin, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
Through cellular signaling, the heat also prompts your skin cells to send a distress signal that ignites an increase in collagen and elastin production, making your skin look and feel more youthful.
