Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

What causes wrinkles?

The age-related changes your body goes through also affect the health of your skin. Most notably your body’s production of collagen, a building block of healthy skin, starts to slow down. Without enough collagen, skin starts to sag and form wrinkles.

These wrinkles are especially noticeable on your face and can become progressively more severe due to sun exposure, overuse of cosmetics, or when your skin isn’t properly hydrated.

When should I consider treating wrinkles?

While everyone develops wrinkles, not everyone is bothered by them. However, if moderate to severe wrinkles are affecting your self-confidence and your happiness with your appearance, the team at Jewell Family & Elder Medicine PA can help.

After a thorough evaluation of your skin’s overall health, your provider can determine if you’re a candidate for skin tightening treatments using innovative laser energy.

How does laser energy treat wrinkles?

Using the latest advancements in laser therapy available from Cynosure®, your provider can address the signs of premature aging for a younger, fresher appearance.

The team at Jewell Family & Elder Medicine PA offers in-office treatments using either the TempSure® or the Icon™ laser systems. Both technologies use noninvasive laser energy to heat the tissues beneath the surface of your skin, triggering your body’s natural healing process.

Stimulated by the laser heat, your body begins regenerating new collagen to replace the lost volume and sagging skin that forms wrinkles. Over time, new collagen continues forming to smooth out wrinkles and give you healthier skin from the inside out.

With a good skin care regimen, regular exercise, and a healthy diet, you can maintain your natural-looking results for years to come.

Are laser treatments painful?

You may feel some slight discomfort during the application of the laser, but treatments are fairly quick and require no incisions.

The most common side effects of laser skin tightening treatments are mild redness and swelling that resolve on their own within a few days. You can return to work and your usual activities right after treatment without the need for any downtime or recovery.
