It can be shocking to look in the mirror and see someone older than you feel looking back at you. However, as we age, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines is inevitable, and there’s no doubt they make us look older. The good news is that at Cohen Medical Practice, we have effective anti-aging treatments that can help reduce the appearance of those wrinkles for an overall more rested, youthful look.
What Causes Wrinkles and Fine Lines?
Wrinkles and fine lines are a consequence of a reduction in collagen and elastin production. These substances form a network of support beneath your skin that pulls the skin back into place every time you contort it by using your muscles. Unfortunately, once you reach 30, your body’s production of collagen starts to drop precipitously, and your skin doesn’t bounce back so easily. Over time, the result is sagging skin. This condition can be exacerbated by excessive exposure to the sun or other environmental hazards.
What Are the Signs?
The first sign of wrinkles due to aging are usually Crow’s feet, those little lines right around the corners of the eyes. You may also start to see under-eye wrinkles, forehead lines, and lines around the mouth. Although wrinkles are most commonly seen on the face, you may also notice age spots and sagging skin on the hands and anywhere the skin gets regular exposure to the sun.
How Do We Treat Wrinkles and Fine Lines?
To help reduce existing wrinkles and fine lines and slow the progression of new ones, we recommend protecting your skin from the sun wherever possible, covering up and using sun block when you are out in the sun. We can also recommend an effective skin care regimen to protect your skin and encourage collagen production. For noticeable reduction in wrinkles and fine lines, schedule a consultation to discuss our TempSure® procedures. TempSure® is a device that allows us to apply a precise amount of radiofrequency-generated heat directly to the area where you have lines or wrinkles. This heat signals the body to ramp up collagen production. Over time, with the right amount of treatments, this can result in a significant tightening of the skin and lessening of wrinkles. We have options for both the face and the body:
