Wrinkle Reduction Q & A
What causes wrinkles?
Unwelcome by most people, wrinkles are creases or folds in the skin, appearing as either fine lines on the skin’s surface or deep furrows from muscle contraction. Wrinkles come from the natural aging process, lifestyle choices, and environmental factors, including:
- Inadequate nutrition
- Sun and ultraviolet damage
If your wrinkles cause extreme dissatisfaction when you look in the mirror, the lack of self-confidence can bleed into other areas of your life. Call Family Allergy & Asthma or use the online booking tool to find out if wrinkle-reduction treatments can restore a younger-looking appearance and improve your self-confidence.
What treatments are available for wrinkle reduction?
While you can help delay wrinkles by limiting sunlight exposure, avoiding smoking and alcohol, and eating a healthy diet, eventually everyone will have fine lines and wrinkles. Smoking reduces the blood supply to your skin, which accelerates the aging process. Drinking alcohol dehydrates the skin, which causes increased wrinkling. If you’re not ready to accept the wrinkles and fine lines on your face, Family Allergy & Asthma helps reduce wrinkles in a single treatment using the ICON laser.
Can wrinkles be reversed?
Yes. If wrinkles already appear on your face, they can be reversed by addressing the loss of collagen, the root cause of aging. Collagen is found in our bones, skin, muscles, and tendons, and is the most abundant protein in the body. The collagen substance provides strength and structure to skin but the aging process reduces collagen production, leading to the loss of structure and resulting in fine lines and wrinkles.
How does the ICON laser reduce wrinkles?
The ICON uses ablative fractional laser technology to deliver energy into your skin to stimulate skin regeneration through new collagen growth. The collagen fills in areas of your skin that have lost volume to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and reduce sagging. Laser wrinkle reduction is noninvasive with no incisions and a quick recovery period. Most people tolerate ICON laser treatments well and can immediately return to work and daily activities without limitations.
