What causes wrinkles?
Wrinkles are caused by a combination of repetitive facial movements, sun damage, and the loss of collagen. Together these factors create an environment for lines and folds to become more prominent. As we get older, our bodies lose elastin and collagen, which function is to keep our skin hydrated, firm, and elastic. With repeated facial expressions over time, it becomes harder and harder for our skin to bounce back to an “expressionless” state. Sun exposure is a major factor in the appearance of wrinkles and the aging process.
What are some of the most common facial wrinkles?
As a result of aging skin, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines all eventually develop.
Crow’s feet are the name for the lines around the outer corner of the eyes. Squinting in the sun can cause and worsen these lines. Forehead lines can be both horizontal and vertical on the forehead. Frown lines (also known as the “11s”), are the lines that form between the eyebrows.
With advancements in cosmetic technology, it is now easier than ever to address these fine lines and wrinkles.
How can South Bay Retina Help Me Reduce My Wrinkles?
At South Bay Retina, we use the TempSure Envi radiofrequency laser. The radiofrequency laser uses heat to trigger the body to produce new collagen. With an increased boost in collagen, your skin will appear tighter and more elastic.
As our bodies age, they lose the ability to quickly generate collagen. This leads to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, as collagen helps to make our skin elastic. Elasticity is important, especially in the face, where facial expressions and muscle movements are constant. With TempSure Envi, you can safely and effectively tighten your skin and reduce wrinkles without the use of surgery. This treatment is safe for all skin types and levels of sun exposure, making it an ideal treatment for any beauty maintenance routine.
What can I expect during radiofrequency laser treatments?
The TempSure Envi treatment is performed using handpieces that have been specifically designed to safely deliver the radiofrequency energy into delicate areas, where your skin has lost collagen. These treatment spots can include the forehead, between the brow, around the eyes for crow’s feet, around the mouth for smiles lines and the legs for cellulite.
The handpieces will glide over the predetermined treatment areas while you sit or lie down in our treatment room. Treating the entire face can take approximately 30-60 minutes. If you would like to treat a specific area, such as the delicate areas around your forehead or eyes, the procedure can be completed in as little as 30 minutes. There is no downtime with TempSure Envi. Following the procedure, you can return to your normal routine immediately.
