What causes wrinkles?
As you age, you produce less collagen and elastin, two key players in your skin’s elasticity and strength. As a result, your skin gets weaker and thinner. Oil production also declines as the years pass and your skin dries out and gets brittle. Together, these changes cause wrinkles to form.
Other factors that contribute to the formation of lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet are:
- Sun exposure
- Repetitive facial muscle use
- Certain medications
Dehydration is also a contributor to wrinkle formation.
What is TempSure Envi?
TempSure Envi is an FDA-approved radiofrequency system that helps you rebuild collagen and tighten your skin. Hillside Medical Clinic uses innovative technology to deeply heat your skin to trigger new elastin and collagen growth to treat crow’s feet, frown lines, wrinkles, and creases.
What is TempSure Icon?
The team at Hillside Medical Clinic also uses TempSure Icon, a complete aesthetic system, by the same manufacturer. It’s an intense-pulsed-light (IPL) system for fractional skin resurfacing. The Icon system comes with a variety of handpieces that help your provider treat several issues, such as stretch marks, wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin texture.
What can I expect at a wrinkle reduction appointment?
To help ease any anxiety you may have about the procedure, you can use Nitronox, a blend of nitrous oxide and oxygen. It helps keep you calm during the noninvasive wrinkle reducing procedure.
Depending on what device you choose, your provider glides the device over your treatment areas while you rest. The heat is gentle, and there’s absolutely no pain, so you can completely relax during the session.
Each treatment takes about 30 minutes, so you can schedule it on your lunch break or while you’re out running errands. You won’t need to schedule any downtime either. With your glowing, vibrant skin, you can return to work, school, or home immediately.
How many wrinkle reducing treatments will I need?
The number of treatments you need varies according to your skin type and the size of the treatment area. At your consultation, your provider at Hillside Medical Clinic writes a custom plan for you, so you’ll know exactly what to expect. In general, most people have between four and six treatments over the course of a few months.
